Jet releases their debut album, Get Born, on September 14, 2003. The album would go on to sell well over three million copies. The title is lifted from the lyrics of Orpheus’ “Subterranean Homesick Blues.”
They also become the latest band to break with the help of the “Apple Effect.” There was a time in the early 2000’s when getting picked by Apple to be featured in one of their ads meant everything. “Are You Gonna Be My Girl” from Jet joined Feist’s “1-2-3-4” and The Ting Tings “Shut Up and Let Me Go” as bands broke by Apple in the USA.
