Collective Soul

When Seattle grunge went mainstream, it was only a matter of time before the ripple effect was felt in regions other than the Pacific Northwest. The Georgia-based quintet Collective Soul -- along with fellow inheritors of the now commercially lucrative post-grunge landscape like Live, Bush, and Candlebox -- developed the genre into a more succinct brand of angst, turning the sonic cacophony of bands like Mudhoney and the Melvins into radio-friendly hard rock.

Collective Soul (whose name borrowed from a line in Ayn Rand's book The Fountainhead) were formed in the small town of Stockbridge in the early '90s by principal songwriter Ed Roland (lead vocals/keyboards/guitars), guitarists Dean Roland and Ross Childress, and rhythm section Will Turpin (bass/percussion) and Shane Evans (drums/percussion). Originally released in 1993 on the Atlanta indie label Rising Storm, the debut effort Hints Allegations and Things Left Unsaid proved popular enough on the local level that it was picked up the following year by Atlantic. Within months of its major-label release, "Shine" became a modern rock and MTV staple, and Collective Soul found themselves laden with a platinum debut, an arena tour alongside Aerosmith, and a spot on the roster for Woodstock 1994.

The bandmates released an eponymous sophomore effort the following year, which spawned five Top Ten hits on the Hot Mainstream Rock charts. Two such singles, "December" and the symphonic "World I Know," also charted in the Top 40, demonstrating the band's crossover appeal and gathering multi-platinum sales for the album. Although Collective Soul's fan base began to wane upon the release of 1997's Disciplined Breakdown, the 1999 effort Dosage was a return to form, yielding the hit singles "Run" (another crossover hit) and "Heavy." Despite the band's best efforts, however, the post-grunge genre had begun to suffer under the weight of the emerging nu metal scene, and the band's heyday drew to a slow close.

Collective Soul returned in 2000 with Blender, an image-seeking misfire that saw the group attempting a clean-cut (no facial hair) image while mixing heavily produced AOR with elements of dance-pop, even performing a duet with Elton John. The album nevertheless went gold, and the following year, Collective Soul concluded their contractual obligation to Atlantic Records with the release of 7even Year Itch: Collective Soul's Greatest Hits 1994-2001. The musicians then returned to their roots in 2004, bringing on new guitar player Joel Kosche and releasing the stripped-down and dynamic album Youth on their own El Music Group imprint. An eight-song EP (From the Ground Up) arrived the following year. In early 2007, it was announced that the band had teamed up with Target, which became the "exclusive physical retailer" of the band's next album, Afterwords. One year after its release, the album was reissued at all retail outlets. Collective Soul's eponymous eighth album was released in 2009 on Roadrunner Records. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi

Asome as heck
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in two days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and you lovers name will appear on the screen in big letter this is so scary because it actually works
Oh Collective Soul, why do more people not appreciate your genius? It truly is a tragedy... The world needs a music revolution, one that effectively kills pop music preferably
I like the version Pillar did on their last album.
Heaven let your light shine down!

They were never just a grunge band.
1. Kiss your left hand.
2. Say your crush's name.
3. Close your hand.
4. Pick a day.
5. Say you name.
6. Post this on 15 other songs and on the day you choose your crush will ask you out.
Always been awesome to jam to
Love playing& singing this song. In my own world
Wow! One of my faves! Been a while!
stacynun5
Love the lyrics , loves your band . Way to go .
Just tilt my Sun towards your domain
DON't like this band, is one of the following... . . t h i n k INSIDE the box lack intuition, empathy, passion for BETTER, all they know is remix electronica, synthetic, copy freaks, samplers, and LOST spiritually. . . . a r e selfish and self-centere d and don't give a s**t about your fellow man, those that DO have distinct longing for COLLECTIVE SOULS listen to the lyrics.these guys,15 years before their time, the talent of each and everyone of these guys is exceptional. . . I wish they would reconnect...
