The History of The Police and Sting
Formed in London, England in 1977, The Police helped to bring new wave music to the mainstream.

They developed a style of music that incorporated punk, reggae and rock and churned out hits such as "Roxanne," "Every Little Thing She Does is Magic" and "Every Breath You Take". Ultimately, tensions and solo projects broke up the band but The Police's music had already left its mark. In this WatchMojo.com video, we take a look at the history of The Police.
