After hundreds of requests and patron voting, we take a look at The Reason why Hoobastank became such a success in the mid 2000’s.
Hoobastank (sometimes stylized as h∞bastank, and originally known as Hoobustank) is an American rock band formed in 1994 in Agoura Hills, California by lead vocalist Doug Robb, guitarist Dan Estrin, drummer Chris Hesse, and original bassist Markku Lappalainen. They were signed to Island Records from 2001 to 2012 and have released five albums and one extended play to date. Their sixth album, Push Pull, was released on May 25, 2018. They have sold 10 million albums worldwide. The band is best known for their singles “Crawling in the Dark“, “Running Away“, and “The Reason“.
The Reason is the second studio album by American rock band Hoobastank, released on December 9, 2003 by Island Records. Produced by Howard Benson, it was the band’s last album to feature bassist Markku Lappaleinen prior to his departure in 2005. Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics, The Reason peaked at number three on the US Billboard 200 and was eventually certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America; currently, it has sold over 2.3 million copies in the United States alone. #Hoobastank #TheReason #Manscaped #Rocked #RegrettingThePast #IlNeige
