Their debut album, The War Report, was
released in 1997 while Noreaga was serving another prison sentence. Billboard Mainstream Rock Charts. The two grew up in bad
neighborhoods in Queensbridge and LeFrak City, and met each other in jail in 1992.
They released "Youth" under their own label, El Music Group. On November 2004, Collective Soul released sixth studio album "Youth" with new guitarist Joel Koesche. In 2001, the lead guitarist, Ross Childress, left the band, eventually being replaced by his own guitar tech, Joel Koesche. Subsequent singles flopped, such as "Perfect Day" (a duet with Elton John) and "Vent", which barely cracked the Top 40 on the Rock chart.
It entered at #22 on the Billboard 200 but produced no more than one bona fide hit with "Why Pt 2" peaking at #2 at their strongest format. In 2000, Collective Soul released fifth studio album "Blender" which achieved modest success. Collective Soul was one of the Top 5 most played bands on the Mainstream Rock format in the 1990s. At the end of 1998, "Heavy" was the #2 rock song of the year.
It garnered moderate success on alternative, hot AC and the Top 40 formats but became somewhat of a cult favorite. (Since then, the record for the longest stay at #1 was broken in 2000 by 3 Doors Down, who stayed at #1 for 21 weeks with "Loser") "Run", a softer ballad, was released to mainstream radio and was featured in the movie "Varsity Blues". The former became a Top 5 Alternative smash and a #1 hit on Rock radio for a record-breaking 14 weeks. Two tracks, "Heavy" and "Run" were simultaneously released to radio.
In 1998, Collective Soul released "Dosage" amidst critical acclaim. However, it added two to Collective Soul's tally of #1 hits. Third studio effort "Disciplined Breakdown" did not fare as well, producing no real crossover hits. Both were #1 Mainstream Rock hits, with "December" repeating "Shine"'s success by winning the Billboard award for the Top Rock song of 1995.
Their second album bore five hit singles, along with two crossover smashes, "December" and "The World I Know". Subsequent single "Breathe" did not fare as well on the charts but the band returned to the studio to release their best-selling album to date, the self-titled Collective Soul. "Shine" also became the #1 Album Rock Song of 1994 and won a Billboard award for the Top Rock song that year. The multi-format smash also became an MTV staple.
"Shine" became a #1 rock smash for 8 weeks, peaked at #4 on alternative and hit #8 on the pop chart. Collective Soul broke through in 1994 with their hit "Shine". Collective Soul eventually paved the way for bands such as Matchbox 20 to achieve enormous success. These bands created a sound of their time following the grunge movement in the early 1990s which took the international music world by storm, led by Nirvana and Pearl Jam.
Collective Soul achieved the most success among bands in the mid-1990s rock scene which produced hooky melodic clean rock, such as the Gin Blossoms, Better Than Ezra and Live. Ed Roland cites Elton John and the Cars as main influences, though their music can be as heavy as Led Zeppelin. Collective Soul enjoyed much more success on mainstream rock radio, as they created hook-laden melodies on top of crunchy guitar riffs reminsicent of classic rock bands from the '70s and '80s. Throughout the 1990s and into the 2000s, they enjoyed moderate popularity on alternative rock radio.
