Hands up, those who remember belting out Hoobastank’s “The Reason”. Ruling the airwaves back in 2004, this was the anthem for those going through a slice of life otherwise known as heartache.

And now the band behind the monster ballad is back for a one-night only gig on 30 November 2014 at The Coliseum™, Hard Rock Hotel® Singapore.

In anticipation of their upcoming gig, here are 5 rocking facts about them.

  1. Having heard lead singer Doug Robb, then a bass player, sing in a high school battle of the bands, it was guitarist Dan Estrin who convinced him to make the permanent switch from bass to vocals.
  2. Doug and Dan went to the same high school as Mike Shinoda, the co-vocalist of Linkin Park.
  3. The very first album that Dan bought and led him to finding his own musical path was “Appetite for Destruction” by Guns ‘n’ Roses.
  4. The band members have expressed their desire to stay away from the wilder antics of some of their peers. They consider music as their job, and don’t come to work drunk or high. In fact, Doug said: “None of us do drugs. I’ve never even smoked a cigarette.”
  5. The band had intended to leave their unusual name behind when they became more successful, even signing their record label contract as “the band formerly known as Hoobastank.” But it was too late – by the time they signed, their loyal following knew them as Hoobastank, and it stuck.

So whether it’s in wistful reminiscence or head banging glory, be electrified with past hits as well as songs from their latest album!

Grab your tickets now and prepare to rock out with the band.
