Very few American musical groups have been fortunate enough to have the longevity and widespread success that Matchbox Twenty has had in their 17 years of powerhouse pop-rock. Their 1996 debut album, Yourself or Someone Like You shot to the top of the international charts, and the Florida born and bred foursome hasn't stopped since.

Each track is ripe with brilliant lyricism, rich melodies, and, of course, the hooks that have come to define the band throughout the decades. They have a tough act to follow after the multi-platinum status of their third album, Exile on Mainstream, which featured the band's best selling single to date, "How Far We've Come," an impossibly catchy track that has been stuck in our heads since 2007.
