Their song, "6 Underground", went to #7 on Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart.
The band's founding members were Liam Howe and Chris Corner. They then hired Kelli Dayton as a singer, and longtime friend Ian Pickering to write lyrics. Dayton was the original singer of the Sneaker Pimps.
After the first album, the band felt that demos for the 1999 album Splinter was better for the voice of Corner. Following the tour for their first album, Becoming X, they kicked Dayton out of the group. Dayton later had a solo career under the name "Kelli Ali".
The Sneaker Pimps broke up in 2005. They got back together in 2015.
