Staind initially took shape in 1995 in Springfield,
Massachusetts, and their original lineup withstood the test of time over a decade later. It all started when Aaron Lewis (vocalist)
and Mike Mushok (guitarist) were introduced at a holiday party in 1993. Later on, Mushok introduced Lewis to Jon Wysocki,
who eventually would fall into the lineup as the drummer. Lewis also met up with Johnny April (bass player).
first began playing, Staind covered the tunes of Pearl Jam, Rage Against the Machine, Korn and others, taking the stages of
small clubs. Staind's debut album, Tormented, arrived in the late fall of 1996. Their first effort cemented a name for them
in the music industry. Their breakthrough moment occurred when they were asked to open for Limp Bizkit. Fred Durst's first
impression of Staind's album cover art was initially one of disgust. The frontman of Limp Bizkit interpreted the album cover
art to mean that Staind members were supporters of Satan worship. He requested that Staind be subtracted from the bill. But
after Durst heard Staind perform, his attitude about them changed. Durst even persuaded them to go to Jacksonville, Florida,
to produce new songs.
Staind members then began focusing their energies on their sophomore effort. Co-produced by Terry
Date and Durst, Dysfunction arrived in April 1993. In support of their album, Staind embarked on a spring tour with Kid Rock
and eventually joined up with Limp Bizkit for a summer tour. Although success came at a glacial pace for Dysfunction, it did
climb to No. 1 on Billboard's Heatseeker and landed at No. 74 on Hot 200.
Staind and Limp Bizkit developed a solid partnership
over the years, often touring together, including for the 1999 Family Values Tour. Staind's third album, Break the Cycle,
dropped next and produced hits like "For You," "It's Been a While," "Epiphany" and "Fade." The album scored the No. 1 spot
on the Hot 200 chart, and it also sold 716,000 copies within a week of its release. It also earned the title of second best-selling
album in 2001. Their next effort, 14 Shades of Grey, underwent similar success on the Hot 200. Two of its tracks settled in
for weeks on top of the rock chart.
The band continued to promote their albums and piggybacked on bills of numerous
festivals until mid-2005 when they issued Chapter V. The album became Staind's third album in a row to achieve No. 1, with
sales opening at 185,000 copies. The remainder of 2005 was spent on the road with P.O.D., Flyleaf and Taproot, as well as
touring solo. The band generated a 2-CD/DVD set of Chapter V, which features multiple gems and fan faves. A Greatest Hits
compilation also was produced, which was issued as The Singles: 1996-2006. The album was saturated with Staind's coveted singles.
And, it also contained three renditions played at a New York show. Their sixth album, The Illusion of Progress, came out in
the late summer of 2008. There was a rare edition sold to Staind fans, which highlighted three bonus tracks as well as membership
in the Staind Fan Club. In late 2009, Lewis decided to pursue a solo album, with the band staying together for the development
of their eponymous seventh album. At the same time, Jon Wysocki (drummer) exited the band. Later on, Sal Giancarelli was enlisted
to fill Wysocki's shoes.
In the summer of 2012, the band announced that they would be taking a break. In a candid interview
with Billboard, Aaron Lewis explained, "We're not breaking up. We're not gonna stop making music. We're just going to take
a little hiatus that really hasn't ever been taken in our career. We put out seven records in 14 years. We've been pretty
Staind is set to perform for the first time in two years at the Welcome to Rockville Festival in 2014. They also
have plans to take the stage at the Carolina Rebellion and the Rock on the Range festivals.
discography is comprised of one compilation album, 25 singles, seven studio albums, three video albums, one live album and
16 music videos.
Their studio albums include: Tormented (1996); Dysfunction (1999); Break the Cycle (2001); 14 Shades
of Grey (2003); Chapter V (2005); The Illusion of Progress (2008); and their eponymous album (2011). The band has earned five
chart-burning singles and has sold more than 15 million records globally.
They've been labeled
as a post-grunge, nu metal, alternative metal and as an alternative rock band, but no matter how you categorize Staind's genre,
one thing for sure is that their music is deeply introspective. Their lyrics offer insight on topics of relationships, betrayal,
finding oneself, depression and more.
