Godsmack in Concert

Since the mid 1990s, Godsmack has been one of hard rock's premier bands. Their sludgy riffs and doomy melodies providing an outlet for listeners who wanted to thrash out their feelings of solitude. 

Hailing from the northeastern Massachusetts city of Lawrence, Godsmack came up at the right time. Their debut album, 1997's All Wound Up, caught the attention of a Boston radio DJ who agitated to have "Keep Away" added to his employer's playlist. The song rose to the top of the station's charts, and Godsmack was signed to Universal/Republic in 1998. All Wound Up was remastered — it had originally been recorded in three days — and turned into Godsmack, the band's major-label debut.

Almost immediately, Godsmack became one of alternative rock's most dominant forces. Their amped-up version of muddy grunge got extra heat from controversy over the band's lyrics, which some saw as at least worthy of a "Parental Advisory" sticker. "You can't buy that kind of publicity," frontman Sully Erna told The Boston Globe. Godsmack's debut went on to spawn four rock radio hits, including the menacing, hypnotic "Voodoo" and the chugging "Whatever."

Godsmack has been a mainstream-rock mainstay in the decades since, releasing seven studio albums packed with downcast yet hard-charging rock songs. In 2002, the gnarled "I Stand Alone" was released as the lead single from the blockbuster movie The Scorpion King, and its video became an MTV staple. 

Godsmack also has proven able to throw the occasional curveball, covering Joe Walsh's "Rocky Mountain Way" (as captured on their 2012 live album Live & Inspired) and Elton John's "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" in concert. In 2018, Godsmack released their seventh album, When Legends Rise, led by the vulnerable yet still riff-heavy Mainstream Rock chart-topper "Bulletproof." In 2019 they hit the road, touring with New Zealand rockers Like a Storm in Europe during the winter and sharing the bill with kindred spirits Volbeat in North America.
