Weathered is the third album by American rock band Creed, released on November 20, 2001. Some versions are enhanced CDs and include videos. It has been certified 6× platinum by the RIAA.[6] The album entered the Billboard 200 at #1, selling 887,000 copies in its first week of release,[7] and remained in the top spot for eight consecutive weeks, a record which Creed shares with The Beatles albums, the Anthology series. The album contains Creed's shortest ("Freedom Fighter"), longest ("Who's Got My Back?"), and the band's heaviest song ("Bullets"). The album sold more than 6 million copies in the U.S alone. Weathered also was promoted on an episode of Monday night raw the night before it came out

Weathered was the last Creed album before the band broke up in 2004 (though they later reunited in 2009). It is the only Creed album not to include bass guitarist Brian Marshall who left the band after comments he had made about Pearl Jam.[8] 12.14.14 note by a reviewer: no evidence at that link to corroborate claim that this is the reason Brian Marshall left the band or did not play on Weathered album. As a result, Mark Tremonti played bass guitar for Weathered.

On July 20, 2001, Scott Stapp, Mark Tremonti, and Scott Phillips entered J. Stanley Productions Inc. a private residence / recording studio in Ocoee, Florida to begin the process of recording the album.[9]
