"Overcome" is a song written and performed by Creed. At the time of its release, it was their first single in seven years, and also the first from their 2009 reunion album, Full Circle. To date, it's[clarification needed] their 11th song to reach the top 5 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.  The single was released digitally on August 25, 2009.
"Overcome" was written in reference to an event where rapper T.I. had saved Creed lead singer Scott Stapp from committing suicide.
Since the song's release on radio, "Overcome" has received positive reviews from radio disc jockeys and fans. It is notable for being one of Creed's much heavier singles. On the day it was digitally released, it reached number 3 on the iTunes Top 100 Rock Songs. It has since reached number 2. It also debuted at #18 at Billboard's Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, and has since reached #4 on the list, and #73 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The music video was shot at their August 18 concert at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts and premiered on Tuesday, September 15, 2009 on Yahoo Music, one day earlier than expected. It is only the second non-conceptual Creed video (the first being "Higher") and contains not only live footage but also candid shots of the band backstage.
