3 Doors Down – “Not Enough” – (2000)

The Better Life was a huge success. It had four huge singles, three of which were #1s on the rock chart and one was a top three single on the Hot 100. This was not a single, but it did receive airplay (at least where I live) on rock radio. It’s really not that bad either, and right in line with the rest of the album. Give it a go if you don’t know it.

#31 – 3 Doors Down – “Kryptonite” – (2000)

Depending on what kind of radio you listened to from February 2000 through mid-to-late 2001, 3 Doors Down mined this album for every single it could. Sure, I heard some of the tracks on the radio that weren’t technically released as singles – but my point is I heard about ¾ of this album on the radio. Which is ridiculous. But this song stands above all others (from this album or others of theirs). 3 Doors Down has always reminded me of a harder version of Matchbox Twenty… sort of the “poor man’s version.” This song was a huge smash and still lingers around from time to time over the air. It hit #3 on the Hot 100 and #1 on the Modern Rock, Mainstream Rock, and Mainstream Top 40 charts. This is the band’s defining song, whether they like it or not.

3 Doors Down – “Duck and Run” – (2000)

The Better Life was the first studio album from 3 Doors Down and this was the third single from that album which spawned some big hits. While this was a #1 on the Mainstream Rock chart, it wasn’t the biggest hit they had. Or the best. But it was the only one to get put on Clear Channel’s “inappropriate songs” list after September 11th – which of course, is stupid. I’ve always had the impression that the lead singer of 3 Doors down is always doing a Rob Thomas impression. Don’t know why. But watch the video and tell me if I’m wrong.
