50 Years, 50 Albums 2001: Staind ‘Break the Cycle’

Staind were a Springfield based band that were discovered by Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit fame. Their debut album came out in 1999 just when the nu metal movement was starting to gain steam. Staind was part of the extremely popular “Family Values” tour and then in 2001 dropped their biggest record and our hall of fame winner, Break the Cycle. Five million copies sold and really their first foray into a more acoustic sound that would show up in their later albums. “It’s Been Awhile” is the biggest song from the album and truly their calling card.
