Three Days Grace were formed in Norwood, Ontario, Canada in 1992 under the moniker Groundswell. After a 1995 breakup, they reformed in 1997 a new line-up; Adam Gontier on vocal, Neil Sanderson on drum and Brad Walst on bass. The name Three Days Grace was picked up from the question: "If you had three days to change something in your life, could you do it?".
After five years making indie music, this band were signed to Jive Records and moved to Long View Farm, a studio in North Brookfield, Massachusetts to record their major-label debut album. The effort was self-titled and dropped in 2003 when Barry Stock was added as guitar player in the band. Led by single "I Hate Everything About You", it peaked at No. 1 on Billboard Hotseekers Albums chart.
