Filter is an industrial rock group formed in 1993 by Richard Patrick (formerly guitarist for Nine Inch Nails's live performances), Brian Liesegang and Arthur Lee. Filter's most distinguishing feature is Richard Patrick's voice, which can soar to quite a high scream - on just about all songs.

Their first album, Short Bus, was released in 1995. The album was successful, and included the hit single "Hey Man, Nice Shot".

Filter is an industrial rock group formed in 1993 by Richard Patrick (formerly guitarist for Nine Inch Nails's live performances), Brian Liesegang and Arthur Lee. Filter's most distinguishing feature is Richard Patrick's voice, which can soar to quite a high scream - on just about all songs.

Their first album, Short Bus, was released in 1995. The album was successful, and included the hit single "Hey Man, Nice Shot". The song was somewhat controversial, as it was seen as capitalizing on the public suicide of Budd Dwyer. Kurt Cobain's suicide was widely rumored to have inspired the song, but the band refuted this.

Liesegang left in 1997. In 1998, for The X-Files film soundtrack, Filter recorded a cover of Three Dog Night's 'One'. Patrick continued on with 1999's, Title of Record, which moved away from industrial rock somewhat, and produced a modest hit with "Take A Picture." Other singles included "Welcome to the Fold", "The Best Things" and the Crystal Method collaboration "(Can't You) Trip Like I Do".

2002 saw the release of The Amalgamut, the most notable single being "Where Do We Go From Here". « hide
