The band rose to fame with their debut album Vivid in 1988. Although they scored a number of hits, Living Colour is best remembered for their signature anthem "Cult of Personality", which won a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance in 1990. They were also named Best New Artist at the 1989 MTV Video Music Awards and won their second Grammy Award for their follow-up album Time's Up (1990). Their third album, Stain (1993), was also well received by music critics. After disbanding in 1995, Living Colour reunited in late 2000, and has released three more studio albums since then: CollideĆøscope (2003), The Chair in the Doorway (2009) and Shade (2017).
