Platinum-selling rockers Trapt found success in the early 2000s with their self-titled album “Trapt” which included the band’s single “Breakdown” that skyrocketed to over a million sales and was followed up by three additional top-10 hits. The album’s biggest hit “Headstrong” reached #1 on both the Modern Rock Tracks and Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks charts, as well as #16 on the Billboard Hot 100. The band produced a top five-hit with their single “Stand Up” from their sophomore album “Someone In Control” and a top-10 hit with “Who’s Going Home With You Tonight” from their third album “Only Through The Pain.” The group will release their newest album, “DNA,” in August 2016.
Saliva dominated the airwaves throughout the 2000s with chart-topping hits like “Raise Up” and 2002 Grammy Award-nominated “Your Disease,” both from their certified Gold album “Every Six Seconds.” With nine studio albums released over the span of their two-decade career, their latest album titled “Love, Lies & Therapy” was released in 2016.
Grammy-nominated for Best Hard Rock Performance in 2001, Alien Ant Farm found worldwide success with their ironically titled debut album “Greatest Hits,” which went on to win Best Independent Album at the L.A. Music Awards in 1999. Their hottest single was a cover of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal,” which hit #1 on the charts internationally, and was featured on soundtracks for “WWE Tough Enough” and “American Pie 2.”
Winners of numerous BMI and ASCAP songwriter awards, platinum-selling artist Saving Abel found success in the late 2000s with their hit single “Addicted.” Embodying the definition of southern rock, the band’s follow-up hits included “18 Days” and “Drowning.” Their sophomore album “Miss America” topped the Active Rock and Hard Rock charts, solidifying the band’s place in radio and live music.
Best known for their singles “Breakdown,” “Astounded” and “Mourning,” Kentucky natives Tantric hit the rock music scene in 2000 and has released six studio albums since, including “After We Go,” “The End Begins” and “Broken Down…Live in the Poconos.”
Post-grunge band 12 Stones has contributed numerous hit singles to major motion picture soundtracks, including “Photograph” from the film “Elektra”; “Let Go” from the “Daredevil” soundtrack; and the single “My Life” from the film “The Scorpion King,” which reached #147 on the Billboard 200.
With hits like “Toxic” and “Darkside,” Crazytown first took the music world by storm in 2000 when they took part in hard rock festival Ozzfest. The band’s single “Butterfly,” from their debut album “The Gift of Game,” hit #1 in more than 15 countries and the album sold more than six million copies. Their music has been featured in films including “Orange County,” “Saving Silverman,” and the upcoming Universal Studios release, “Sing.”
