Having sold over 25 million records worldwide, including 7 million in the United States alone, Blue Öyster Cult is longest-lasting and the most commercially successful lineup rock band, They have released fifteen studio albums, 7 Live albums, 21 Compilation albums, 11 Music videos, and 32 Singles.

After rock journalist Sandy Pearlman overheard guitarist Buck Dharma and friends jamming at a house near New York’s Stony Brook University, he offered to become their manager and named the group Soft White Underbelly. ∙ Derived from Pearlman’s poetry, the name Blue Öyster Cult refers to a sect of aliens covertly guiding our planet’s history. ∙ After the release of the band’s debut album, they developed a flair for showmanship by touring with Alice Cooper. ∙ The Platinum-selling Agents of Fortune became their biggest album, spawning “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper,” which Rolling Stone ranks among the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. ∙ Blue Öyster Cult was one of the first bands to experiment with laser-light shows at their concerts. ∙ Originally intended for Dharma’s solo album, “Burnin’ for You” became a Top 40 hit for the band, while its video received constant play on the then-recently launched MTV.

Richard Meltzer, known as the father of rock criticism, wrote lyrics for Blue Öyster Cult songs, as did Patti Smith, who dated BÖC keyboardist/guitarist Allen Lanier. ∙ The band’s literate songwriting and relationships with famous authors led to their reputation as “the thinking man’s heavy metal band.” ∙ In 2000, Saturday Night Live aired its classic “More Cowbell” sketch—a Behind the Music-style account of the recording sessions for “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper.” ∙ Metallica, Iron Maiden, and Alice in Chains are among the legions of hard rock and heavy metal artists that Blue Öyster Cult has influenced.
