Tesla is an American hard rock group that formed in Sacramento in 1984. Taking its name from the electrical engineer and inventor Nikola Tesla, the band scored three consecutive platinum albums full of blues rock and heavy metal in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Like most of its hard rock brethren at the time, Tesla suffered when the grunge onslaught took over in the early 1990s and soon after broke up in 1996. The band was able to continue around 2000, however, powered by a renewed touring appeal and a love for messing with its sound by playing cover songs or sometimes performing in an acoustic format.
