The catalogue of classic and popular tunes that this group has produced since first entering the music scene in 1998 is just one of the reasons why fans should consider occupying a room in one of many cheap Paris hostels and heading along to the gig.
With an array of albums flying off the shelves and dominating record charts, including that of the most recent release Plastic Beach, which came out in March of this year, the songs from each record have proven popular on radiowaves and in clubs alike.
There are far too many to list in one go, with the likes of Clint Eastwood, Rhinestone Eyes and the unforgettable beats of DARE and Feel Good Inc. all gaining over 100,000 plays each on Last.fm in the last six months alone.
Gorillaz first came about from the brainchild of former Blur frontman Damon Albarn and comic book writer Jamie Hewlett, who created the cartoon band members 2D, Murdoc, Noodle and Russel.
Their live performances have been known to combine cartoon elements, which have become known in the promotional videos and album sleeves of the band, with a highly-energetic live show by Albarn and company.
As an added incentive to get music fans along to the gigs after booking up rooms in a cheap hostel in Paris, Kitty Empire has told the Guardian that Albarn "is ringmaster and cheerleader, pounding on a piano at the back, then leaping to sing the bulk of Gorillaz's songs" whenever one of these gigs is played out.
