"Home" is the third single by the Canadian rock band Three Days Grace from their self-titled debut album.

Background[edit]

"Home" was the third single released by Three Days Grace and, despite its radio success, it did not reach as high as its two predecessors on the music charts, peaking at number 90 in the United States. Nonetheless, "Home" was singer Adam Gontier's favorite song from Three Days Grace:

"['Home'] hits a spot with me. It's a fun song to play live as well. It's tough to pick a favorite, but because of the amount of energy we give it live, I'd say it's 'Home.'"[1]

Music video[edit]

The original promotional video was shot as a montage of the band playing on tour accompanied by the song. It held little to no success and was not charted on MuchMusic's Countdown due to its low rotation.

The second and more familiar video, directed by Dean Karr, was produced a few months later. It starts with the band in the lobby of the then-abandoned Lister Block. The video shows a Gothic girl walking throughout the building as if she was trapped in there and she couldn't find a way out while the band is playing in the lobby. Lead vocalist Adam Gontier is also seen screaming into a local telephone in the lobby. The girl eventually picks up a metal baseball bat and starts breaking windows and other things around the building. She eventually comes to the lobby where the band is playing and destroys the chandelier there. She then falls to the ground and is seen suffering because she couldn't find a way out.
