Dan Reynolds is het herkenbare stemgeluid achter de Amerikaanse groep Imagine Dragons, waarin ook Ben McKee, Wayne Sermon en Dan Platzman spelen. De groep krijgt snel bekendheid door bijdragen aan games, commercials en tv-programma’s. Zo is het nummer Radioactive terug te horen in het spel Assassin’s Creed III en bij de tv-serie Arrow.

In 2013 is On Top Of The World Alarmschijf en is het nummer, naast te horen in een commercial voor de Samsung Galaxy Note, ook te vinden in de populaire FIFA-game. De single zorgt voor hun debuut in de Top 40 en bereikt de tiende plaats.

Ook de daaropvolgende singles, It's Time en Demons, worden Alarmschijf en komen in de lijst terecht.

In 2014 maken ze het nummer Warriors voor het spel League Of Legends en eind oktober verschijnt I Bet My Life, dat Alarmschijf wordt en hun vierde Top 40-hit.

In februari 2015 verschijnt het tweede studioalbum van de band, Smoke + Mirrors. Eerder dat jaar is ook Shots als single uitgebracht. De band werkt in 2016 mee aan de soundtrack van de film Suicide Squad via de track Sucker For Pain. Later leveren ze voor de film Passenger het nummer Levitate af, dat in de Tipparade blijft steken. In januari van 2017 wordt Believer de zesde Top 40-hit. Eind april wordt die track opgevolgd door Thunder, waarmee ze hun tweede top 10-hit in ons land scoren. Terwijl Thunder nog in de lijst staat wordt Whatever It Takes door Radio 538 uitgeroepen tot Alarmschijf.

Begin 2018 wordt Next To Me de volgende single van de groep. In juni maakt de band samen met de Noorse dj Kygo de track Born To Be Yours. Van het album Origins verschijnen Natural, Bad Liar en Birds als singles.

Na een stilte van drie jaar komen de heren in maart 2021 met maar liefst twee nieuwe tracks, genaamd Follow You en Cutthroat. Halverwege het jaar droppen ze de track Wrecked. Eind oktober droppen ze samen met rapper JID de track Enemy. Het nummer is de soundtrack voor de animeserie Arcane League of Legends.

Songtekst

Hahahahaha

Trouble
Blood is in the rocky waters
Hide away your sons and daughters
Eat you alive

Levels
Better put your head on swivels
Dancin' with the very devil
Butter to knife

You think you're better than them
Better than them
You think they're really your friends
Really your friends
But when it comes to the end
To the end
You're just the same as them
Same as them (Hahahahaha)

So let it go, let it go
That's the way that it goes
First you're in, then you're out
Everybody knows
You're hot, then you're cold
You're a light in the dark
Just you wait and you'll see
That you're swimmin' with sharks

He's comin' to get you
Chick, chicka, woo, woo
He's comin' to get you, get you
Woo

Bubbles
Drownin', you're seein' doubles
Don't you let them see your struggles
Hidin' your tears

Crisis
Take advantage of your niceness
Cut you up in even slices
Prey on your fears

You think you're better than them
Better than them (You think you're better)
You think they're really your friends
Really your friends (Really your friends)
But when it comes to the end
To the end (Oh no)
You're just the same as them
Same as them (Hahahahaha)

So let it go, let it go
That's the way that it goes
First you're in, then you're out
Everybody knows (Ooh)
You're hot, then you're cold
You're a light in the dark
Just you wait and you'll see
That you're swimmin' with sharks

My blood is pumpin'
He's comin' to get you
Don't take it from me
Woo woo
My blood is pumpin'
He's comin' to get you
Don't take it from me (Get you)

My blood is pumpin'
He's comin' to get you
Don't take it from me
Woo woo
My blood is pumpin'
He's comin' to get you
Don't take it from me (Get you)

Every time my heart is beatin'
I can feel the recipe
I wonder if my day is gonna
Blame it on the entropy
My blood is pumpin', I can see
The end is right in front of me
Don't take it from me, I could be everything
Everything

Sharks

Don't take it from me
My blood is pumpin', my blood is pumpin' (Sharks)
Don't take it from me, I could be everything
Everything

So let it go, let it go
That's the way that it goes
First you're in, then you're out
Everybody knows (Ooh)
You're hot, then you're cold
You're a light in the dark
Just you wait and you'll see
That you're swimmin' with sharks

My blood is pumpin'
He's comin' to get you
Don't take it from me
Woo woo
My blood is pumpin'
He's comin' to get you
Don't take it from me (Get you)

My blood is pumpin'
He's comin' to get you
Don't take it from me
My blood is pumpin'
He's comin' to get you
Don't take it from me (Get you)
