Chevelle (pronounced shuh-VELL) are an alternative metal/hard rock band from Chicago, Illinois founded in 1994 by brothers Pete and Sam Loeffler with the later addition of Joe Loeffler in 1996 (who was replaced by the Loeffler's brother-in-law, Dean Bernardini). The band's name refers to the Loeffler brothers' father's favorite car.
Collaborating with producer Steve Albini, Chevelle released their debut album Point #1 through Steve Taylor's Squint Entertainment in May 1999. Though the album was criticised for its repetitive song structures, it was generally well received. During this time the band was marketed as a Christian band, though the band distances themselves from that label. The title track "Point #1" as well as "MIA" were released as singles. Music videos were made for both songs, and each took a Dove Award for "Hard Music Song": "Mia" in 2000 and "Point #1" the following year. The album also took the award for "Hard Music Album" in 2000.
