Loser got their name from memories of guitarist John 5's childhood spent in Grosse Point, MI, where, according to him, kids who played rock music were dubbed "losers." John 5 (born as John Lowery), who had also played for Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, and David Lee Roth, started the band when he and producer Bob Marlette saw Joe Grah, ex-singer of Jibe, performing and were immediately impressed by his dynamic vocals and asked him to sign on.
In early 2005, the duo added Glendon on drums and Charles Lee on bass, and Loser was complete. Their debut album on Island Records, Just Like You, was set for release in 2006 but was shelved when John 5 left the band to pursue a solo career. ~ Marisa Brown, Rovi
