The Residents es un grupo de música avant garde y de artes visuales. Ellos comenzaron sus actuaciones al inicio de la década de 1970 y lanzaron su primer álbum en 1974. Siempre han mantenido sus vidas y su música en oscuridad. Hasta la actualidad los miembros de la banda no han revelado sus verdaderas identidades, sus apariciones en público siempre las realizan con disfraces, usualmente con trajes de etiqueta, sombreros de copa y máscaras con forma de ojo gigante. La banda siempre se ha negado a otorgar entrevistas a los medios de comunicación y a revelar sus identidades.

Se cree que eran originarios de Shreverport, Louisiana, donde se conocieron en la secundaria en los '60s.

Buscan experimentar con grabadoras de cintas, fotografía, y cualquier cosa que cayera en sus manos y que remotamente pudiera ser a su parecer 'arte'.
