Early Life

Aaron Lewis was born on April 13, 1972 in Springfield, Vermont to a Catholic father and a Jewish mother. His parents eventually separated, and he moved with his father to Longmeadow, Massachusetts.

Beginnings of Staind

In 1993, Lewis met guitarist Mike Mushok at a Christmas party. Together, along with drummer Jon Wysocki and bassist Johnny April, they formed the rock band Staind in 1995. Early on, the group played covers of songs by Korn, Pearl Jam, Tool, and Rage Against the Machines, among other bands. Staind went on to release its debut studio album, "Tormented," in 1996. After signing to Flip Records, the band released its second album, "Dysfunction," in 1999. Featuring lyrics inspired by Lewis's life, the album continued the dark nu metal sound of "Tormented." It launched the singles "Mudshovel," "Just Go," and "Home."

Staind Breakthroughs

Staind had its biggest success and breakthrough in 2001 with its third studio album, "Break the Cycle." Debuting at number one on the Billboard 200, the album propelled Staind into the mainstream; the album's first single, "It's Been Awhile," remains the band's best-known and most successful song. "Break the Cycle" went on to sell around seven million copies globally, making it Staind's best-selling album. Following this huge hit, the band had further success with its 2003 album "14 Shades of Grey." Like its predecessor, the album debuted atop the Billboard 200; it also launched the hit singles "Price to Play" and "So Far Away." With the release of its 2005 album "Chapter V," Staind had its third consecutive number-one album on the Billboard 200. The album's biggest hit single was "Right Here," which was followed by the singles "King of All Excuses" and "Everything Changes."

Further Staind Albums

Staind's next album, "The Illusion of Progress," came out in 2008. Supported by the single "Believe," the album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200. Staind next released a self-titled album in 2011; it was the band's final studio album to feature the entire original lineup, as drummer Jon Wysocki left the group that year. The album debuted at number five on the Billboard 200, and featured the singles "Not Again" and "Eyes Wide Open." Following this, Staind took a hiatus beginning in the summer of 2012. The band returned to perform intermittently over the ensuing years.
