Train is an American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1994. The band currently comprises a core trio of Patrick Monahan (vocals), Jimmy Stafford (guitar, vocals), and Scott Underwood (drums, percussion).
Train, with a lineup that included original members Rob Hotchkiss and Charlie Colin, as well as Monahan, Stafford, and Underwood, achieved mainstream success with their debut album, Train, which was released in 1998 with the hit "Meet Virginia". Their second album, Drops of Jupiter (2001) brought the band massive popularity. The lead single from the album, "Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)", was an international hit and won two Grammy Awards in 2002. The album was certified double platinum in the United States and Canada and remains the band's best-selling album to date.
Their third studio album, My Private Nation, released in 2003, continued the band's success, and was certified platinum in the United States with the hit "Calling All Angels". Following the departures of Hotchkiss and Colin, the band released their fourth album, For Me, It's You in 2006, with Johnny Colt on bass, and Brandon Bush on keys. Despite a generally positive reception from critics, the album was commercially unsuccessful. Train then went on a three-year hiatus.
Returning in late 2009 with their returning-to-roots record Save Me San Francisco, Train has more than regained their former success with two of their singles off the album - the RIAA 5x Multi-Platinum certified international hit "Hey, Soul Sister" and "If It's Love" - reaching and long holding high positions on the Billboard Hot 100, #3 and #34, respectively. The album itself has been certified Gold by both the RIAA and ARIA and is currently closing in on Platinum status.
