Noisey birthed in 2011. Since then, in those two short years, the website has grown into one of the smartest, sharpest, and most dynamic music hubs on the planet—continually breaking the mold and defining music coverage in the evolving media landscape. Noisey.com itself reaches millions and millions of readers and subscribers a month, a must-stop source for new music, investigative journalism, and artist-sourced content. In 2012, Noisey continued its takeover by partnering with YouTube as a premium content provider, creating a slew of nontraditional shows that embrace VICE's signature offbeat coverage, illustrating the absurdity and poignancy of the modern life.
But more than just storytelling, Noisey understands the culture in which we live, throwing popular parties and shows worldwide, hosting online listening parties for new records, discovering the freshest and most exciting artists, and producing videos for today's most innovative and creative musicians. Fans come to us not only for everything vital in the realms of rock, rap, metal, and punk, but to understand how to think about those worlds. Our audience is as smart as their taste—read on to learn more about them.
