Hoobastank (typecast as H∞bastank) is the first major studio release by rock band Hoobastank. The album proved to be the band breakthrough album. The album also proved to be the band's first album to use a post-grunge sound rather than a funk metal and ska punk sound that was use in their first independent album and their previous independent releases. It was released on November 20, 2001 by Island Records. Three singles were released, "Crawling in the Dark", "Running Away", and "Remember Me". It has since been certified Platinum in the United States.[citation needed]
