TOP STORIES
Happy Ending was formed in 2005 in Seattle by guitarist/vocalist D.D. Valentine, drummer Chanel Summers, and bassist Brian Lemon. Emerging as part of the new wave of post-grunge Punk/Heavy Metal bands populating the Northwest rock scene, Happy Ending actually owes more to the stadium rock, rockabilly and metal movements of the '80s: their sound is equal parts T. Rex, AC/DC, Social Distortion, Motley Crue, and Led Zeppelin. In its own way, Happy Ending is a reaction against the self-absorbed emo and lumbering nu-metal movements of the early '00s. Happy Ending's rock is minimalist, humorous at times, but always raw, ugly rock and roll at its core: basic, gritty and honest with a solid hard, bluesy base. The band's infamous antics, raunchy swagger and unique stage theatrics contrast with a lean, dirty, riff-oriented set that ranges from ballads to scorchers. Still, no matter how huge and bludgeoning the guitar chords and drum beats are, there is a clear sense of space and restraint. And by toning down metal's traditional heavy riffs in favor of melody and message, Happy Ending are poised for crossover success.
