The Dollyrots are a band composed of Kelly Ogden, Luis Cabezas, and Chris Black. Their debut album, Eat My Heart Out, was released by Lookout Records on September 14, 2004. Their latest album, titled Because I'm Awesome, was released on March 13, 2007 by Blackheart Records.
The Dollyrots were founded by Kelly Ogden and Luis Cabezas, who had known each other since the 8th Grade. Originally the group was created for fun while the two were in college. The onus to go professional was made due to the results of the 2000 US Presidential Election. As Ogden recalls:
"We were watching the 2000 presidential election results, and at four o'clock in the morning, when we found out that George W. Bush had won, Luis and I were like, "The world's probably gonna end anyway, and I don't want to go to med school," so we thought, "Let's just do the band," says Ogden. "So that's when it happened. We had no future anyways, so let's just be in a rock band!"
As a result the pair soon embarked on a road trip to find a new home to accommodate their musical aspirations. On January 2002 after visiting various cities they finally settled on Los Angeles as their base of operations. The Dollyrots quickly achieved success, self-releasing their debut album "Eat My Heart Out" and even getting their own HP commercial performing the song "Feed Me, Pet Me".
The subsequent buzz led to The Dollyrots being signed by Lookout!/Panic Button Records, who re-released "Eat My Heart Out" in 2004. In 2006 The Dollyrots switched labels to Blackheart records as well as replacing departing drummer Amy Wood with Chris Black.
Because I'm Awesome is now featured in the newest Kohl's commercial where the band makes an appearance at the end.
