The world's most famous unknown band, the Residents were originally from Shreveport, Louisiana, and in the late 1960s moved to San Francisco. They've been putting out records for over 33 years, and are continuing on to this day. It is rumoured that the Residents will never die unless they break up. Perhaps the Residents will always exist.

History

The Residents' history more a question of lore than biography. The facts that do exist are primarily their recordings and shows, but of the process that led to the creation of them knowledge and fact is scarce. Therefore the history of the band as it is portrayed in this article is based on what is known, not what is necessarily true, and it should be judged with that in mind.
