Ima Robot are an American band based in Los Angeles, California that formed in the late 1990s.
Following vocalist Alex Ebert's previous band The Lucky 13's breakup, Ima Robot formed in the late 1990s and signed with Virgin Records.
The band's other original members were Timmy "The Terror" Anderson, Oliver "Oligee" Goldstein, Justin Meldal-Johnsen, and the drummer Joey Waronker. Meldal-Johnsen and Waronker were sought-after musicians who had played with Beck before joining Ima Robot.
On 6 September 2003, Ima Robot released their first full-length album, the self-titled Ima Robot. The album featured the singles "Dynomite" and "Song #1" (released in the UK only).
On 12 September 2006, the band released their second album Monument to the Masses, which featured the singles "Creeps Me Out" and "Lovers in Captivity".
