Seether vs. 3 Doors Down – Rocktober Rumble, Round 1
This Rocktober Rumble matchup features two of the most prominent bands at rock radio over the past decade-plus as we attempt to determine the best hard rock hit of the 21st Century.
Seether's Shaun Morgan bared his soul with "Rise Above This" and was rewarded with one of the biggest hits of the band's career. The song, penned in the wake of his brother's suicide, became a huge single and also led to the band's own Rise Above festival bringing attention to suicide prevention. Take a listen to "Rise Above This" below.
From the opening guitar licks and instantly recognizable drum beat, there's no mistaking 3 Doors Down's "Kryptonite" off their The Better Life album. The song was penned by Brad Arnold when he was a teenager in high school and went on to spend nine weeks at No. 1. Revisit this huge single from the year 2000 in the player provided.
