The Velvet Underground (sometimes abbreviated as The Velvets or VU) was an American rock band first active from 1965 to 1973. Its best-known alumni are Lou Reed and John Cale. Although never commercially successful during their time, The Velvet Underground remains an influential rock band. A famous remark, often attributed to Brian Eno, is that while only a few thousand people bought a Velvet Underground record upon their initial release, almost every single one of them was inspired to start a band. The group's often raw, sometimes difficult sound influenced many later punk, noise rock, and alternative music performers.
