How did Vampire Weekend start out, exactly? Well, the hitmakers behind songs like "A-Punk", "Giving Up The Gun", and "Holiday" all met at Columbia University, and competed in a Battle Of The Bands competition. They didn't win, not by a longshot, but the foursome kept at it, making their unique style of peppy pop-rock and getting buzz on blogs online. CBS Sunday Morning profiled the band, who recently released their third studio album Modern Vampires Of The City and it became the number one album in the United States. Not bad for a group who finished next-to-last in a Battle Of The Bands show!
