Hoobastank's 'The Reason' Passes 1 Billion Streams On Spotify

(The Syn) A single embedded into pop culture history, Hoobastank's "The Reason" just entered into the elite Billions Club on Spotify as the song surpasses 1 Billion streams. With just over 600 songs to surpass this milestone, Hoobastank is the latest to be added into the illustrious playlist alongside music legends: AC/DC, The Beatles, Whitney Houston, Elton John and more.

Hoobastank guitarist, Dan Estrin, shares "What an amazing moment. Creating something with your childhood best friends and then watching it grow into an out of control wild fire has been absolutely surreal. None of us ever expected this and at times it feels like a dream. Knowing how much "The Reason" means to so many people in the world is an indescribable, proud emotional feeling. I am way beyond grateful and realize how fortunate we are. We have played it all over the world. And to see everyone's faces while they sing along is priceless. Thank you world."

Vocalist Doug Robb adds "A billion is cool but a trillion would be awesome! All joking aside, I feel amazed and astonished at how much life the song has had and continues to have. It's so cool that it has now been woven into a whole new generation's music taste. Let's go for another billion!"

Amid the 20th anniversary of The Reason, Hoobastank re-entered the studio with Howard Benson, the producer responsible for this iconic album, for an intimate track by track experience. Reminiscing about this magical time in 2003, Benson, vocalist Doug Robb and guitarist Dan Estrin, take fans behind the scenes, discussing never-before-shared stories of The Reason. The episodes will debut weekly with the first screening of "Same Direction" available today.
