Superbus is a five-piece Frenchmarker power pop band formed in 1999.

Origins

After a trip to the United Statesmarker to perfect her English in 1999, Jennifer Ayache went looking for musicians to make a group. She met Michel Giovannetti, a guitarist, and François Even, a bassist, who already knew each other from another group, and formed a new band. They started out as a three-piece before 2 other members joined.

Those two were later replaced by Guillaume Roussé (on drums), and Patrice Focone (on guitar). Roussé quit the band in 2005 and was replaced by Greg Jacks.

The band got their name from the Latin word superbus, meaning proud, which Jennifer Ayache (lead singer) stumbled upon while browsing a Latin dictionary.

Musical style

Superbus' style is reminiscent of a vast array of bands, from No Doubt to Sum 41, via Weezer, Blondie,Blink-182 and Sublime.

In 2002, Superbus released their debut album, Aéromusical. The band's second album, Pop'n'Gum, released in 2004, was produced by David Salsedo from Silmarils. In 2006 they won the Best French Act award at the MTV Europe Music Awards. In 2008, they won the NRJ Music Award of the Best French Music Band. Their last album is called Lova Lova.

Superbus also made a debut in Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock with their song Radio Song, featured as an unlockable bonus song.
