In 1995, while still in high school, the members of Ozma first met and began conducting Casiotone counterpoint exercises and lyrical experiments in double entendre together. After selling homemade cassettes and CD-Rs at all ages shows throughout California and producing demos with Weezer's Jason Cropper and The Rentals' Rod Cervera, Ozma released their debut album Rock And Roll Part Three on January 1, 2000, nearly 20 years ago to the day. At the advent of digital distribution, the 11 slabs of infectiously singable powerpop on this "little-album-that-could" ruled Napster, Limewire, and MP3.com. Rock and Roll Part Three couldn't be ignored by Rivers Cuomo, who praised it in Rolling Stone and invited Ozma to join Weezer on several North American arena tours, catapulting the band to international success. Joe Escalante of The Vandals also became a lifelong supporter, signing Ozma to his Kung Fu Records imprint, giving them worldwide distribution to for their first three LPs and a headlining slot on the Warped Tour. Throughout the 2000s, Ozma continued touring tirelessly with era-defining bands including Rilo Kiley, Nada Surf, The Get Up Kids, Shiny Toy Guns, The Rentals, Superdrag, Nerf Herder, Piebald, Yellowcard, Hellogoodbye, Rooney, Asian Kung-Fu Generation, The Format, and innumerable partners on the road.

On 12/20, Ozma will celebrate the 20th anniversary of Rock and Roll Part Three by playing the album live in its entirety.
