On November 20, 2021, HOOBASTANK celebrated 20 years of its self-titled release, "Hoobastank". The 2001 album launched the career of the band to mainstream success with huge singles including "Crawling In The Dark", "Running Away" and "Remember Me", all of which have since been certified RIAA platinum. Almost two decades later, the band is still clocking in at over six million monthly listeners on Spotify and "Crawling In The Dark" has surpassed the 100-million streaming mark across DSPs. The band's 2003 follow-up studio album "The Reason" took them to even greater heights and solidified HOOBASTANK as a household name. The title track "The Reason" went four times RIAA platinum and racked up quite a few No. 1 chart positions along the way, while the album went double RIAA platinum. "The Reason" has over two billion streams/views, which has helped lead the way to the band's catalog surpassing the three-billion mark across the various streaming platforms. The band looks forward to continuing their success in the years to come while also celebrating what they have accomplished so far.
LIT is considered one of the preeminent bands to have come out of the post-grunge era of the late 1990s and helped define an entire generation of SoCal power punk (NO DOUBT, BLINK 182, THE OFFSPRING) with hard-charging hits like "My Own Worst Enemy", "Miserable", "Zip-Lock" and "Lipstick & Bruises". The band has released seven worldwide studio albums, including their RIAA certified-platinum "A Place In The Sun" and their latest release, "Tastes Like Gold" (Round Hill Records),featuring the new single "Mouth Shut".
LIT has remained one of the most active bands from that era and still consists of three original and primary members, including brothers Ajay (lead vocals) and Jeremy Popoff (lead guitar),and Kevin Baldes (bass) along with new drummer Taylor Carroll. Their double platinum mega-hit "My Own Worst Enemy" is one of the most broadcasted (255 million streams on Spotify),covered, karaoke'd and recognizable rock hits of the last 20 years, having won them a Billboard Music Award for "Modern Rock Song Of The Year", while their unforgettable video for "Miserable", featuring Pamela Anderson, was one of the top 10 most played songs of 2000.
