Stuck in the Sound were formed in Paris in 2002. The four group members shared a love of the band Nirvana and its lead singer Kurt Cobain. The name "Stuck in the Sound" came from the fact that when the band first started they locked themselves in a cellar and made music, so they were literally "stuck in the sound". The group released their eponymous début studio album on 1 October 2004, on a compact disc produced by the band's own record label, Stuck Records. Some time after this, the band were signed by French record label Discograph. On 6 September 2006 the band released their first extended play, the Toy Boy EP, which contained four tracks, three of them from their second album.
Two months to the day after the release of the EP their second, although first commercially released, studio album Nevermind the Living Dead was released as a download, CD and LP in France and as a download in a number of other countries. Despite the album failing to enter any national charts, a number of tracks from Nevermind the Living Dead were featured on various compilation albums; "Never On the Radio" appeared on the Les Inrockuptibles Made In France compilation and "Toy Boy" was included on EMI France's L'Alternative Rock collection. In 2008, the song "Toy Boy" was included on the soundtrack of the video game Guitar Hero World Tour.
During the same year, the band began recording their third studio album. They released the single "Ouais" on 1 December 2008 to precede the album and on 26 January 2009, Shoegazing Kids was released to moderate commercial success, achieving a peak position of No. 69 on the French album chart and staying in the Top 200 for a total of six weeks. In France, the album sold over 10,000 copies. "Shoot Shoot", the second single from Shoegazing Kids was brought out on 29 June 2009.
