3 Doors Down – American rock group
3 Doors Down appeared in 1996 in a small city of Escatawpa, Mississippi. Initially, the band’s lineup included a vocalist and drummer Brad Arnold, a guitarist Matt Roberts, and a bass guitar player Todd Harrell. Later, another guitarist Chris Henderson joined the group.
In the first years of its existence, 3 Doors Down weren’t achieving any popularity. However, at the end of the 90’s, they recorded a demo EP with a single “Kryptonite”, which suddenly turned out to be successful and became the group’s calling card. The musicians passed the demo EP to the WCPR-FM radio station where it topped the playlists. After the song appeared on the radio, the group caught the attention of Republic Records.
The musicians signed a contract and started working with the manager Phin Daly. Even though many critics wrote negative reviews about their work, 3 Doors Down started climbing to the peak of popularity.
