The Kaiser Chiefs originally formed in 1997, under the name 'Parva' before becoming The Kaiser Chiefs in 2003.

The band are named after South African football team 'Kaizer Chiefs'.

Ricky Wilson donated his Red Tambourine to radio station 'Xfm' so it could be auctioned off for charity. The winning bid was £375.00 and the money went to homeless charity 'Shelter'.

The band were the opening act in the Philadelphia 'Live 8' concert.

In September 2005, an Internet-only video for the song 'Sink that ship' was released. It was used as a promotional video for the EA game 'Burnout Revenge'.

In February 2006, the band won three 'Brit' awards. The three awards were 'Best Group', 'Best British Rock Act' and 'Best Live Act'.

Several members of the band are huge Leeds United football club fans, even naming the band after the former team of long-serving former Leeds captain Lucas Radebe.

Kaiser Chiefs were nominated for the 2005 Mercury Music Prize.

The highest position the band have reached in the british charts is number 6 with the re-release of "Oh My God".

The song "Lap of Honour" has only been released in Japan and the single version of "Na Na Na Na Naa" was only released in Japan and Australia.
