Creed

Creed was one of the most commercially successful rock bands of the late 1990s and early 2000s, having sold an estimated 53 million records worldwide. Their first three studio albums, My Own Prison, Human Clay, and Weathered, have all gone multi-platinum in the United States, selling 6 million, 11 million, and 6 million copies respectively. The band also won a Grammy Award for Best Rock Song for the song "With Arms Wide Open" in 2001. However, in spite of this enormous commercial success, Creed was poorly received by professional critics, such as Robert Christgau, among others. Jonah Weiner of Slate has tried to make the case that the band was "seriously underrated," "most people hate Creed’s combination of overwrought power-balladry and Christian-infused testosterone." However, the band's live shows from throughout their career have been critically acclaimed.

In 2011, Billboard ranked Creed as the 18th best artist of the 2000s.[59] In 2012, lead vocalist Scott Stapp published his own memoir titled Sinner's Creed, which details his early life and tenure with the band. In 2013, readers of Rolling Stone voted Creed the worst band of the 1990s, whilst criticizing the band and saying the competition "wasn't even close." Also included in the list were fellow post-grunge band Nickelback.


Creed was an American post-grunge band from Tallahassee, Florida that became popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
From Tallahassee, Florida. They played a lot of gigs around Florida State University when they were starting out.
The first band to have 4 #1 singles from their first album. My Own Prison contained the hits "My Own Prison," "What's This Life For?," "Torn," and "One."
In June 2004, Creed officially announced their break-up. Stapp began recording his debut solo album, The Great Divide with Roadrunner Records recording artist Goneblind. The other band members (including former bassist Brian Marshall) formed a new band, Alter Bridge, with Myles Kennedy.
Despite the band's continual dismissals of the label, Creed is sometimes labeled a Christian rock band due to the fact that all three albums focus on questions of faith, Christianity, and eternity.
Creed was sued in 2003 by four concert goers who claimed Scott Stapp "was so intoxicated and/or medicated that he was unable to sing the lyrics of a single Creed song" at a December 29, 2002 concert in Chicago. The lawsuit was later dismissed, and the concert goers who filed the suit were mocked in a Daily Show segment conducted by Rob Corddry.
In addition, Creed was named "Worst Band of the Year" in 2004 by prominent music magazine, Guitar World.
