The Stone Temple Pilots have been creating hits since the early 90s while going platinum over 20x and the legacy continues. When STP burst on the scene with "Core" in 1992 grunge was at it's peak. And Stone Temple Pilots would be right there with the Nirvana, Soundgarden, Peal Jam and Alice in Chains of the genre. In 2004 the band would break up with lead singer Scott Weiland struggling with addiction. They would come back together in 2008 and create a new album with Scott as the lead.
In 2013, Scott would leave the band again but the music would continue with Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington. In 2015, Scott Wieland died. In 2017, Chester died. But with the tragedy surrounding the band, the founding members would continue on with new lead singer Jeff Gutt. Jeff was the former lead singer of the band "Dry Cell". If you are a Queen of the Damned fan, you might know their song on that soundtrack, "Body Crumbles".
