3 Doors Down
The Greatest Hits
“When did Mötley Crüe become classic rock?” Pop/punkers Bowling for Soup posed this question in the lyrics of their hilarious hit single “1985” back in 2004. Nearly a decade later, grunge guys such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Alice in Chains also have now graduated to “Classic Rock” status right along with their former musical adversaries Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, and the aforementioned Crüe. In fact, we’re now so far into rock’s fourth quarter that new millennium sensations like Fuel, Incubus, and Creed also are sounding more comfortable formatted alongside of Skynyrd or Clapton than Cage the Elephant or A Day to Remember. And with the release of their latest offering, The Greatest Hits, even the mega-chartbusting 3 Doors Down seemingly is now joining the ranks of rock’s elder statesmen.
After five Top Ten full-length records and nearly two dozen chart singles, the boys from Escatawpa, Mississippi have packaged their greatest hits into one concise collection. The record is a well-rounded, career-spanning retrospective that offers the biggies: “Kryptonite,” “When I’m Gone,” “Here Without You,” and “It’s Not My Time.” However, their previous hits have been delightfully re-tweaked, and three potential future hit bonus tracks (“One Light,” “There’s a Life,” “Goodbyes”) have been added to the mix — making this a must-have for fans old and new.
