VICE started Noisey in 2011 as a way to document new and exciting music across the globe — from pop's biggest heavy-hitters to tiny garage bands. Since then, Noisey has grown into one of the most successful music brands on the planet, boasting some of the most popular music documentaries on the web, its own TV show on VICELAND in North America, a Beats 1 radio show, and more. Through in-depth reporting and incisive storytelling, VICE's music and culture channel uses music as a lens to explore youth culture over the world, telling the untold music stories that drive our culture.
