Orlando, Florida's Matchbox Twenty burst on the scene in 1996, when their full length debut album, Yourself or Someone Like You, sold over 35 million copies worldwide. The album topped out at #5 in the United States, stayed on the charts for parts of three years, and produced four Top 10 singles, "Push", "3 a.m.", "Real World", and "Back to Good". The album also produced a Grammy Award nomination, an American Music award nomination, and two MTV Music Award nominations for the band.
Matchbox Twenty has not let up since. The band's fourth full-length album, North, came out in September of last year. North topped the charts in America and Australia, and has already produced the hits "She's So Mean" (featured in the nearby video) and "Overjoyed". Check them out on Sunday—it should be a great show.
