Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall make up the New York City DJ duo, The Chainsmokers. Right now, they have the number 1 song in the U.S., “Closer” which features Halsey. What fun facts do we have about this group that formed back in 2012? Take a look:

 

1. They picked their name, The Chainsmokers, because they thought it sounded fun and no one else was using it!

2. They have said in interviews that they love all types of music — regardless of genre. Their goal is simply to make music that “captures a sort of picturesque moment, whatever it may be”.

 

 

3. While some performers try to relax before the show, Andrew and Alex claim to have rituals like getting drunk, punching each other in the face, or eating steak before going on stage!

4. When not making hit songs or touring, Alex loves to to read novels and Drew likes playing video games (like “Call of Duty”).
