Glam-metal band Turbonegro, formed in Oslo (Norway) in 1989 by Thomas Seltzer on bass, Vegard Heskestad, Pal Bottger Kjaernes, Rune Gronn, Pal Erik Carlin and Carlos Churasco on drums, debuted with the single Route Zero (Straightjacket, 1990) and the five-song EP Turboloid (Straightjacket, 1990). Their first phase is documented by two albums, Hot Cars and Spent Contraceptives (Big Ball, 1992) and the anthology Helter Skelter (Repulsion Records, 1993).

A new vocalist, Hans Erik Husby, joined in 1993. The new line-up released an EP, Grunge Whore (1993), under the moniker Stierkampf, but then resumed their original name for the next album, Never is Forever (1994), which, together with the singles Denim Demon (1995) and Bad Mongo (1995), heralded their third and major phase.

Their masterpieces were Ass Cobra (Boomba, 1996) and Apocalypse Dudes (1998).

Darkness Forever is a double-CD live album.

They reformed and released Scandinavian Leather (Burning Heart, 2003) and Party Animals (2005), the last two parts of the trilogy that began with Apocalypse Dudes (1998).
