The band has been known by several monikers since it was established; originally being known as Tenth Level Tauren Chieftain — level 10 being the highest level a tauren chieftain hero could be in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and its expansion. The name was changed to Level 60 Elite Tauren Chieftain for BlizzCon 2005 — level 60 then being the highest level attainable in World of Warcraft. The band was later dubbed Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain following the release of World of Warcraft's expansion, World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade — as The Burning Crusade raised the game's level cap to 70. They have since been renamed to their current title, Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain, to comply with World of Warcraft's second expansion, World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King — which once again has raised the game's level cap to 80. On July 16, 2007, the band, then known as Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain, released their second song, "I Am Murloc." On August 4, 2007 at that year's BlizzCon, the band performed two new songs, "Rogues Do it from Behind" and "Terran Up the Night". On June 29, 2008 at the Worldwide Invitational in Paris, France, Level 70 Elite Tauren Chieftain performed "Power of the Horde", "Rogues Do it from Behind", "Terran Up the Night" (a new song), "Raise Some Hell"( referring to Blizzard's newly announced development of Diablo III), and "I Am Murloc." After each song, the band "leveled up" twice before ending their set as Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftan.
The band has yet to release any studio recordings under their current name. The virtual incarnation of the band, The Tauren Chieftains, perform "Power of the Horde" inside the World's End Tavern in Shattrath City every three hours on the hour, eight shows per day. Several minutes prior to their show, Shattrath Saul will announce the band's upcoming performance. In addition, every night at 8:00 PM server time, The Tauren Chieftains perform a five-minute concert inside Blackrock Depths' Grim Guzzler.
Anyone who has Direbrew's Remote from the 2008 Brewfest event can trigger a performance here at any time by talking to the roadie in charge, Ognip Blastbolt. Level 60 Elite Tauren Chieftain (L60ETC) is undoubtedly best known for their multimillion-selling single, "The Power of the Horde," a track that appeared on their 2003 album "Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne." In addition to the hard-rocking, heart-thumping tunes it contained, that album might best be remembered by music lovers everywhere for the popular little computer game that was included as a bonus feature on the disc. The band performed at BlizzCon 2005 on October 29, 2005. This performance was recorded and included on the Burning Crusade Behind-the-Scenes DVD.
