Finley are an Italian pop punk band, formed in Milan in 2000. The band is made up of four guys from Legnano, a town near Milan. The band got its name from NBA star Michael Finley. The four members of the band chose the name because they thought it had a cool sound, even if though they weren't into basketball that much. They used to call themselves a "HardPop" band, some others said their genre is Pop punk or Soft Punk, but actually their genre is a mixture between Pop and Rock. Their way of making music changed during their career, throughout which they have sung in both Italian and English. In 2006, the group won in the category Best Italian Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards 2006 in Copenhagen. On 14 April 2007 they won in the category Italians Do It Better, Best Lacrima Awards and Best Number One Of The Year at the MTV TRL Awards (Italy) 2007.
