Beck Hansen's relentless penchant for experimentation has led him to create music infused with rap, folk, blues, country, and dance sounds — an eclecticism that has earned him praise and criticism. "Loser", from his first album, Mellow Gold, put him on the map and is the only independent record to ever reach the top 10 in the US. He became more popular with such unforgettable songs as "Where It's At" and "The New Pollution", from his second album, Odelay, and "Sexx Laws", from Midnite Vultures, his most recent. Beck has bucked the slacker persona and any conformity to the mainstream, bringing something authentic to the table of American music. A chronology and complete discography is included.
