The Androids are a rock band from Australia. Fronted by guitarist Tim Henwood (originally from The Superjesus). While their 2002 single, "Do It With Madonna", was commercially their most successful release - peaking at #4 in the Australia ARIA Singles Chart and #15 in the UK Singles Chart;[1] their second and third singles, "Here She Comes" and "Brand New Life" could not replicate "Do It With Madonna"'s success. Their self-titled album debuted and peaked at #36 on the ARIA Albums Chart.

Though not a huge success internationally, they are remembered for the music video for "Do it With Madonna", which featured drag queens dressed as Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Pink, Kylie Minogue and Madonna, the song's namesake.

After touring from late 2002 through 2004, and supporting Pink on the I'm Not Dead tour in 2007, the band released their second album, Outta Ya Mind in 2008.
