No. 40: 30 Seconds to Mars ‘The Kill’ – Top 21st Century Hard Rock Songs
There’s a stigma that comes with actors trying their hand at rock and roll, but if there’s a case study to follow of how to do it right, 30 Seconds to Mars‘ Jared Leto may be the one. The rocker downplayed his celebrity and he and the band had to wait out their commercial success until their sophomore set, ‘A Beautiful Lie.’
The 2005 album got off to a slow start as the lead single ‘Attack’ sputtered, but the giant sound and dynamic shifts of Leto’s voice on the second track ‘The Kill’ finally earned the band the 2006 breakout they were seeking.
