Formed in the mid-’90s, the two-time Grammy Award–winning group Evanescence has three albums under its belt. The band was integral in establishing a global, critical mass for women in rock. The group’s 2003 landmark debut album Fallen laid the foundation; spending 43 weeks on Billboard’s top 10, the album sold more than 17 million copies worldwide and was certified 7x platinum in the United States. Global hit “Bring Me to Life” (featuring guest vocals from Paul McCoy of 12 Stones) reached number five on the Billboard Hot 100 and marked its first UK number-one. The song also became the official theme for WWE No Way Out 2003. The equally popular “My Immortal” peaked at number seven in the US and UK, and both songs were featured on the soundtrack for the action movie Daredevil. The album produced four singles total, including “Going Under” (number five on the US Modern Rock chart, number eight in the UK) and “Everybody’s Fool” (number 36 on the US Modern Rock chart, number 23 in the UK). Fallen is one of only eight albums in the history of the chart to spend at least a year in Billboard’s top 50; it spent 104 weeks on the Billboard 200 and is number 32 on the chart’s “Greatest of All Time.”
