Bonde do Rolê is a baile funk group from Brazil consisting of MCs Pedro D'Eyrot and Marina Ribatski, and DJ/MC Rodrigo Gorky. They started in their hometown Curitiba in the south of Brazil, mixing rock guitar riffs with funk carioca (sometimes known as baile funk or Brazilian funk). The trio did their first major tour in 2006, with Cansei de Ser Sexy. During the tour, Marina had an accident at the first Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago, dislocating her elbow while stagediving.

International producer Diplo first found out about the band through their MySpace account, and pushed them using his own fledgling label, Mad Decent, before Bonde was signed to Domino in 2006. "We just started making music out of fun—we didn't have any intentions to work professionally with music," said Rodrigo Gorky.

Bonde has been used in various media after being signed to the British label Domino Records: Solta o Frango (which literally means: "release the chicken") is currently heard in a worldwide campaign for the cellphone company Nokia, the track was also used in another commercial for the hit series Ugly Betty on Channel 4 in the UK and it is also to be a feature on the soundtrack of Electronic Arts game Fifa 2008. GQ magazine used their song Office Boy for the behind-the-scenes photo shoot of actress Jessica Alba by photographer Terry Richardson. Other songs by Bonde do Rolê include Bondallica (an attack on metalheads which includes offenses to Slipknot, Manowar, and Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson), Quero Te Amar, and Melô do Tabaco (released only as a 7" single). Their first album, With Lasers, is currently available through iTunes and Napster, and on vinyl and CD.
