2000 TOP 100 HITS – #5
3 Doors Down – Kryptonite – 105 937 000
As incredible as it may seem, 3 Doors Down never had a Top 50 album nor single in the UK to date. The story is fully different in the US yet and thanks to their debut hit Kryptonite, a #3 hit in the Hot 100 which is a fairly impressive achievement for a Rock song, their first album The Better Life shipped over 6 million units there.
It’s enduring success led Guitar Hero 5 and Rock Band Unplugged programmers to include the track inside both video games, which will maybe ultimately bring the band some success in the countries they still have to break. Nevertheless, they do not seem to need such widespread success as the markets where they are big are enough to accumulate an outstanding 106 million streams, making it the #5 song of the year 2000.
