The Cure are an English band from Crawley, West Sussex, and one of the most iconic groups still performing. Since the late 70s, they have delivered a unique sound, often qualified as post-punk or new wave. They have sold roughly 27 million records and received several nominations at the Grammy Awards and Brit Awards. They also won an MTV Video Music Award in 1992 for their anthem ‘Friday I’m In Love’.
