Morning View was Incubus’s biggest album in terms of sales, and probably, hits. This was the first track, and the second single. It reached the top ten on both the Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts.

The Heavy is a British indie rock band that had one smash hit, but this follow up single didn’t get as much love. But it should – it has a very old feel and fit in really well with other songs that came out about this time (see: horns). It’s worth a listen.

Much like Linkin Park’s Hybrid Theory from last week, Staind’s Break The Cycle seemingly had every track released as a single. “Epiphany” actually was a single, the fifth (and final), having been released in August 2002 – nearly a full year and a half after the album came out. It’s more of a ballad than a hard rock song with a fairly slow tempo and general acoustic-ness. Also, I just has an epiphany: that’s a tree on the album cover. I always thought it was a tornado.

Linkin Park was the hottest thing in rock music in 2000 and 2001. Hybrid Theory officially only had four singles but I swear I heard 90% of this album on the radio. “Runaway” was not an official single but it did chart – peaking at #37 on the Mainstream Rock chart. I still know almost every word of this song somehow…
