Like Kid Rock, P.O.D. (Payable On Death) had been around for a while before they exploded into the charts with their album, Satellite.
Clearly inspired by the likes of Rage Against The Machine, P.O.D. arrived with a look and style that became synonymous with the Nu Metal genre during it’s late-90’s boom, no pun intended.
The release of Satellite in 2001 saw the band stand out amongst their peers and find chart success with memorable singles such as ‘Youth of The Nation’ and ‘Alive’, with the latter’s music video receiving what felt like constant airings on Kerrang in the early noughties.
Finding success with music fans and critics alike, ‘Satellite’ sold over seven million copies worldwide and earned the band multiple Grammy nominations, seemingly tipping the band for big things in the future.
However, P.O.D. disappeared from the mainstream as the Nu Metal scene quickly fizzled out in the mid-2000s.
Still active to this day, P.O.D.’s latest album ‘Circles’ was released in 2018
