Our first entry in this week's edition of Lost Rock Tracks Of The Week
is from a band that experienced great success with several tracks on Rock radio during the "aughts" with surprisingly little fanfare. Best known for the 2004 Pop/Rock hit The Reason
--which was a radical departure in style for this Alternative Metal band--the band Hoobastank
produced a much harder-edged sound than their only Pop hit. I chose this track because it is the one that started it all for them, and it is, IMHO, their signature song.
Hoobastank--Crawling In The Dark (2001)

Touch--Don't You Know what Love Is? (1980)
This is simply an awesome lost Melodic Rock Track, which was once in heavy rotation on AOR stations. While many recall the song, few can recall the artist. It sounds like a cross between Survivor
and Jefferson Starship.
