Jane's Addiction United States
Jane's Addiction was an influential alternative rock band from Los Angeles formed in 1986. The band's name refers to Jane Bainter, a now ex-heroin addict, who was a housemate of the band. The band dissolved in the early 1990s, and returned in the early 2000s, before breaking up yet again. The band was influenced by punk, gothic rock, metal, funk, hard rock, and psychedelic styles; lead singer Perry Farrell once described the band as a cross between Duke Ellington and Bad Brains.
