Description:
TV-2 (stylized as TV·2, short for Taurus Version 2; formerly briefly known as taurus), is a Danish pop rock band group formed in 1981 in Århus. The group is composed of Steffen Brandt (lead vocals, guitar and keyboards), Hans Erik Lerchenfeld (guitar), Georg Olesen (bass), and Sven Gaul (drums). Having released 16 studio albums, three live albums and two compilations, they are arguably the most successful band in Danish music history and have always consisted of the same four members.

TV-2 was formed prior to the Danish television station TV 2, which began broadcasting in 1988. Some of their songs, such as "Fantastiske Toyota" (English for "Fantastic Toyota"), are known to have commercial like concepts. They used to refer jokingly to themselves as "Danmarks kedeligste orkester" (literally "Denmark's most boring band").

The band's name is likely a tongue-in-cheek, play on words joke of how similar the guitar line in the song "Stairway to Heaven" by the band Led Zeppelin sounds to that of the much lesser known song "Taurus" by the band Spirit. Songwriting credit and royalties for "Stairway to Heaven" have never been given to the members of Spirit. Meanwhile, "Stairway to Heaven" has become one of the most popular songs ever recorded. Hence, the joke "Taurus Version 2", in reference to "Stairway to Heaven".Guitar World Magazine, April 1997:...
