Fun Fact: The duo chose their name out of thin air, with it having no ties or meaning to them whatsoever. 'The Chainsmokers' sounded clever to Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, as well as the domains for it being open and making it an easy name to acquire!

Why MTV Loves Them: The Chainsmokers aren't afraid to party, with their pre-stage ritual ranging from steak and espresso to fuel an energetic performance , to punching each other in the face to "hype themselves up"!
