Candlebox

Candlebox rode the grunge bandwagon to multi-platinum success in the early '90s, despite howls of protest from the Seattle faithful who considered their music a watered-down version of the genuine article. To be sure, Candlebox's take on grunge diluted the punk and indie elements inherent in its original form; instead, they were rooted in the bluesy, classic-style hard rock that grunge had ostensibly replaced. Their resulting commercial appeal made them highly suspect in the minds of authenticity-obsessed scenesters, and it didn't help matters that the band hadn't formed until well after the Seattle hype machine had begun. Nonetheless, Candlebox unwittingly helped usher in the post-grunge era; along with Bush, they showed how the more challenging aspects of grunge could be ironed out and polished into a sound that mainstream rock radio could embrace without reservation.

Candlebox were formed in Seattle in December 1991 by singer/guitarist Kevin Martin, a native of Elgin, Illinois, who'd grown up partly in San Antonio, and drummer Scott Mercado. Initially calling the band Uncle Duke, they added lead guitarist Peter Klett and bassist Bardi Martin (no relation to Kevin) and changed the group's name to Candlebox, after a line in a Midnight Oil song. Their demo tape found its way to Madonna's Maverick label, which quickly resulted in a record deal in 1992. Candlebox's self-titled debut was released in 1993, and while the first single, "Change," began to build them a following, it wasn't until 1994, when the follow-up, "You," appeared, that Candlebox really started to take off. "You" gave them a breakthrough hit on mainstream rock radio, which set the stage for the success of "Far Behind," essentially a power ballad for the grunge era. "Far Behind" was a major hit on both mainstream and alternative radio, and also made the pop Top 20; its exposure helped Candlebox climb into the Top Ten on the LP chart and eventually sell over three million copies.

By the time Candlebox returned with their second album, 1995's Lucy, the backlash was already in full swing. Partly because of the group's previous momentum, the lead single, "Simple Lessons," earned some rock radio airplay, and the album itself went gold and barely missed the Top Ten. However, it was largely ignored or dismissed by much of the mainstream media, and was ultimately hurt by a relative lack of memorable songs. In 1997, founding member Mercado left the band and was replaced by original Pearl Jam drummer Dave Krusen. Candlebox's third album, Happy Pills, appeared in 1998 and marked a return to the more basic sound of their debut. "It's Alright," "10,000 Horses," and the title cut all landed some airplay, but the album sold poorly; by this time, countless bands were working in a similar style, and the band's early momentum had long since dissipated. Krusen departed in 1999, as did Bardi Martin; they were replaced by Shannon Larkin (ex-Ugly Kid Joe) and Rob Redick, respectively, but the group disbanded the following year. The original lineup of Martin, Klett, and Mercado re-formed for a handful of shows in 2006 to support the release of Rhino's Best of Candlebox compilation. The overall positive reunion stirred rumors of a new studio album, culminating in 2008's Into the Sun. In 2012, the band inked a deal with AudiNext/Fontana, who released their fifth studio album, Love Stories and Other Musings. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

Always love this group. <3<3<3
Love you guys!!!!!
Change. ..we all need that in our life sometimes.
although it says there was contriversy with Candlebox, i loved them. They were the soundtrack of my highschool years. So many memories listening to the first album. i literally used up 3 different cassette tapes playing it so much. I to this day love candlebox and believe their demise was due to the overwhelming success of a debut album and the inability to create similar songs that teens could grasp a hold of and live by.... I miss candle box and still listen to them....
RIP Shane Dog
My fav song by them is far behind. Love candlebox!
Fuel, Puddle Of Mudd among others seemed to get some of their sounds from Candlebox. Def on the vocal end of things. One of those bands that fell out of the limelight but very influential to a lot of the ones that followed.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the beat say of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs n 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will come on the screen in big letter. This is so scary because it actually works.

Great band with a filthy mouthed singer

If you like Candlebox, look up The Pride by Infinite Staircase. It features Kevin Martin as the lead singer and some great musicians. It's not on here but check it out on youtube...yo u won't regret it!
I'm starting to realize I really liked the music from the '90s.
<3
Bring back memories!

I saw them in Wausau,wi in 98....best concert I was ever at!!!!!
Brilliant group.
Love their music, and accidentally got to see them in Seattle in '95 or '96 (it's been awhile!). They damn near rocked the Space Needle to the ground on a beautiful 100 plus degree summer afternoon. They filled in for Alice In Chains. As the song finished I hear, "Thank you, Seattle!" Awesome-I was there!!!
Yes the first album was awesome. So was happy pills and Under The Sun and the new one. Ive seen these guys 15 times they still rock hard!!!
Yea, the first self-titled album was epic. The rest falls flat and never comes close to the magic of that first album
Their first album is amazing. For sure. Follow me and I'll follow you back!
LOVE IT!
Saw these guys in Patchogue NY on Friday 8-16-2013. The show pretty awesome and was like a time machine taking me back to listening to the original album and seeing their videos on MTV circa. 1993/1994. Kevin Martin still has the same voice and really belts out the lyrics with the same raw energy & emotion.

Having a filthy mouth on stage kept them far away from a possible Grammy
Listening to this song while playing mario on wii
Caught them for the 20th Anniversary show, Saturday night 7.20.13 at the legendary Moore Theatre here in Seattle WA, IT WAS EPIC !!!
The first Candlebox album was the first CD I ever owned! I still have that CD and pop it in from time to time. Come to think of it - it's about that time again!
Totally love it! Reminds me of long ago when I drove around a P O S EXP with a rocking stereo, oblivious to the world and thought I had it ALL!
The song Arrow is one of my all time favs! Just a jammin tune, from the Awesome Debut Album!! That sucker just kills it!!!!
Candle box is flat out the s**t. 38 and I can remember jamming them when I was a youngster. I would love to see them live
I just wanna have sex with somebody when I hear Candlebox.
Baby, I didn't mean to treat you oh, so bad....but I did it anyway!! F'ing awesome song still!! ❌❤❌❤
Still one of my favorite bands of all time!!! I can listen to them anytime and be happy!!!
Music is amazing!! East Bound n Down any1???
You can say whatever you want about this band, but Happy Pills is a great f**king album. Put that one in and crank it. I'm telling you, you'll love it.
This goes out to my baby wish I could take some things back but I can't..I still love you with all my heart n soul nothing will ever change that ever ♥♥
