Imagine Dragons are one of our favourite bands to see live in concert because they always BRING IT.
Remember that performance at the Grammy’s with Kendrick Lamar?
CHILLS. EVERY. TIME.
To further celebrate this amazing band, here are 5 facts you need to know to love them even more (if that’s even possible):
1. The band’s name is actually an anagram!
In fact, the original words that make up the anogram have yet to be revealed, and even the band’s family members don’t know where the name truly comes from! In an interview with Radio.com, they commented saying,
“At this point, it’s been built up so much that anything we say is going to be a letdown. We might just leave it up to everyone’s imaginations. They probably have better guesses than the real answer.”

2. Dan Reynolds’ shares three kids with, Aja Volkman, who is also a singer.
In fact, she was the lead singer in a band called Nico Vega. Volkman was last reported to be working on a solo project.
3. Stage Rush: Imagine Dragons is the band’s very own iPhone game!
It has players run through Las Vegas (where the band is from!) and Paris as members of the band, while unlocking new levels.
4. Dan didn’t attend Berklee College of Music.
This is interesting because every other member of the band did attend Berklee. Dan went to Brigham Young University instead. #TheMoreYouKnow
5. “It’s Time” was written by Dan in his kitchen, as he was dealing with depression.
He told Billboard magazine that he was “just trying to write a song for myself. I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety, and the song spurred from that. Whoever connects to it, I’m happy.”
