3 Doors Down Patriotic Video Goes To No. 1.
Last December 3 Doors Down went on a goodwill tour of U.S. military bases in Europe and the Middle East to perform for American solders, sailors and Marines.
The band chronicled that tour in their video for the song “When I’m Gone”. When the inevitable war broke out in Iraq the video quickly jumped to no. 1 on VH1 and MTV.
Many thought the song had run it’s course as the band just released the second single from their sophomore album, a song called “"The Road I'm On". But now “When I’m Gone” is back in the forefront and appears to be beating out the large pool of anti-war songs that have been unleashed over the past few weeks by artists like Zack De La Rocha, System of a Down, and George Michaels.
