The Neighbourhood (sometimes stylized as "THE NBHD") is an American rock band formed in August 2011. The band is composed of vocalist Jesse Rutherford, guitarists Jeremy Freedman and Zach Abels, bassist Mikey Margott, and drummer Bryan Sammis.

Their song 'Afraid' was on CW's TV show The Vampire Diaries, as well.
