"The Reason" is Hoobastank's second album. It was released on December 9, 2003, under the Island Records label. It has been certified 2x Platinum by the RIAA.

Making of the album

The band entered the studio in 2003 with producer Howard Benson, who has produced records by P.O.D., Cold and The Crystal Method. However, recording was disrupted for a month when guitarist Dan Estrin was seriously injured in a minibike accident in August. Estrin had recovered by October and the band headed off on a Nokia Unwired Tour with the All-American Rejects and Ozomatli in November.

Lyricist and vocalist Doug Robb said in a biography on the band's website that several songs on the album are about questioning what you are told. "A lot of it is about asking questions or questioning all that people see. It's not all about religion. "Out Of Control" is about that and about opening your eyes after being blinded by being devoted to anything".

Chart success

"The Reason" was released in December 2003. The first single "Out Of Control" was made available for download on the band's website. The song would reach number nine on the U.S. modern rock chart, number sixteen on the mainstream rock chart, and number sixteen on a composite world modern rock chart (based on the U.S., Germany, Sweden, Finland, Canada and Australia). "The Reason" initially reached a peak of number forty-five on the Billboard 200.

The title track was released as a single in the first half of 2004. It became a massive hit worldwide, reaching number two on the Billboard Hot 100, number one on the U.S. and world modern rock charts, number one on the world airplay chart, and number ten in Australia. "The Reason" album received a new lease of life on the U.S. album charts reaching #3 on the Billboard 200.

"Same Direction" is featured as the main soundtrack for Madden NFL 2005.
