Outlasting tides, trends, and a torrential industry climate since forming in 1995, the quartet—Sully Erna [vocals, guitar], Tony Rombola [guitar], Robbie Merrill [bass], and Shannon Larkin [drums]—paved the way for a generation of rock bands. Their last album, 2010's The Oracle, rounded out a streak of three consecutive #1 debuts on the Billboard Top 200, an accomplishment only shared by Van Halen, U2, Metallica, Dave Matthews Band, and Linkin Park. Now, these four musicians leap forward without forgetting where they came from. An unbreakable spirit and diehard work ethic evocative of their hometown has also remained fuel for Godsmack. They fought hard to secure a place in music history since first smashing their way on to the scene in 1995. To date, they've notched a staggering six number one singles at mainstream rock radio, including "I Awake", "Straight Out of Line", "Cryin' Like A Bitch", and "I Stand Alone". Moreover, they've enjoyed 20 Top 10 hits at the format—the most of any act since February 1999. Selling over 20 million records worldwide, Billboard named them "Rock Band of the Year" in 2001. In addition to selling out arenas around the globe, they've headlined all of rock's premier festivals from Mayhem and UPROAR to Rock on the Range and more.
