Chevelle was formed in 1995 in Grayslake, Illinois by brothers Pete, Sam, and Joe Loeffler. All three members of the band loved fast cars, so they named the band after one of their dad's favorite cars, the Chevrolet Chevelle. The band's first shows took place in and around Chicago while bassist Joe Loeffler was just 14 years old.
Before he became a well-known name on Saturday Night Live, comedian Fred Armisen appeared on Chevelle's first demo, 1999's Point #1. The record was produced by Nirvana and Pixies producer, Steve Albini, who works in Chicago near Chevelle's hometown of Grayslake, Illinois.
Arizona Diamondbacks infielder Geoff Blum used Chevelle's "The Red" as his intro song when coming up to bat. Blum was a member of the 2005 World Series Champion Chicago White Sox. He is best known for ending the longest game in World Series history by hitting a tie-breaking home run in the bottom of the 14th inning.
