Hoobastank is the eponymous debut studio album by American rock band Hoobastank, released on November 20, 2001 by Island Records. Three singles were released from the album: "Crawling in the Dark", "Running Away", and "Remember Me". It has since been certified Platinum in the United States.[4]

Background[edit]

The album was the first to have a post-grunge sound rather than the funk metal and ska punk sound of their independent releases.[citation needed]
