NRG formed and began writing songs in 1979. At that time the band invested in their own 8 track recording studio to lay down tracks for their music. The band started out recording in a cellar and rehearsed in a chicken coop that was internally covered wall to wall with rugs to deaden the sound while they practiced.
NRG started when drummer Lee Mangano contacted a local guitar player named Ernie Petrangelo. A search began for a singer, and after many auditions, Les Brown a native of Taunton, Massachusetts, walked into the studio, put on a set of headphones, and started to sing. Les never made it to the first chorus and was asked to be in the band. The final member was bass player Pat Lynch.
Their song "Instruments of Destruction" is included in the compilation The Transformers The Movie: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.
In 2003 Damn Cheetah released "Primal", Brown formed Damn Cheetah with members of NYC band "Blacklace" in the late 80's who also around this time frame won a New York City - SKC Music Award for Best Unsigned Hard Rock/Metal Band.
