The year Evanescence, The White Stripes, and Metallica rocked the charts
In 2003, hard rock was back on the charts thanks to a little help from Evanescence, The White Stripes, and Metallica. Evanescence earned the Brand New Artist Grammy and one of the best-selling albums of the 21st century with the release of their album Fallen. The album however, almost didn’t happen when suits requested that Amy Lee added a male co-vocalist. Eventually, the band gave in, completed their lineup, and broke out into the rock & roll scene. In the same year. Meg and Jack White aka The White Stripes hit the big time with their album Elephant. It was so good, it earned a perfect 5/5 rating from Rolling Stone Magazine and got Jack White in their list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of all time. Finally, Metallica rocked the charts with their eighth studio album, St. Anger, which became their last album with Elektra and long-time producer Bob Rock.
