Seventeen Days is the Mississippi rock band's third studio album and their first #1 album debut. It entered the Billboard Top 200 Chart at #1 on February 8, 2005. No strangers to hit records, 3 Doors Down have sold over 12 million albums with their previous releases, The Better Life (2000) and Away From The Sun (2002. They have written six #1 hit singles: "Here Without You", "When I'm Gone", "Be Like That", "Loser", "Duck and Run" and "Kryptonite."
Recorded in Nashville with producer Johnny K (Finger 11, Disturbed), Seventeen Days' twelve tracks include the first hit single "Let Me Go"; the coming of age narrative "Be Somebody"; the studio version of "It's Not Me"; "The Real Life," Brad's follow up to the dark single "Away From The Sun"; "Landing In London" featuring Bob Seger; and "Behind Those Eyes" the quintessential break up song and second single. "Behind Those Eyes" goes to rock radio this next week.
Billboard Magazine says "even with a healthy respect for heritage, 3 Doors Down is a thoroughly modern American band -and a damn good one," while Associated Press writes, "hard rocking riffs and sensitive lyrics...with it's third album, Seventeen Days, the band has blown away most of its competition."
