Creed (band)

Creed was formed in 1995 in a Heavy Metal, Rock and Roll, and an Alternative rock group. Many people consider Creed to be a Christian Rock band, because their songs include many religious and spiritual implications. While most of the band members are Christians, frontman Scott Stapp disagrees with the label: "No, we are not a Christian band. A Christian band has an agenda to lead others to believe in their specific religious beliefs. We have no agenda!" [1]

Their 1997 debut album My Own Prison was successful, and the title track was a major hit at rock radio. Their second album, Human Clay was released in 1999 and debuted on the Billboard 200 Album Chart at number one, based on the strength of its first single, Higher. It wasn't until early 2000 that the single crossed over onto pop radio, and Creed became a household name. Its follow-up, "With Arms Wide Open," was similarly massive on rock radio and arguable even bigger on pop radio that summer.

In the fall of 2001, "My Sacrifice," the first single off of Creed's latest album, Weathered was one of many inspirational songs to become huge in a post-September-11-America. In early 2002, "Bullets" was released as a single, along with a costly, special effects-laden video. The song and video were possibly Creed's least successful since achieving mainstream success. However, Creed rebounded quickly, with one of the summer's biggest hits, "One Last Breath". "Don't Stop Dancing" was a minor hit for Creed in late 2002/early 2003.
