Godsmack is an American rock band from Lawrence, Massachusetts, formed in 1995. The band is composed of founder, frontman and songwriter Sully Erna, guitarist Tony Rombola, bassist Robbie Merrill, and drummer Shannon Larkin. Since its formation, Godsmack has released seven studio albums, one EP (The Other Side), four DVDs, one compilation album (Good Times, Bad Times… Ten Years of Godsmack), and one live album (Live & Inspired).

The band has had three consecutive number-one albums (Faceless, IV, and The Oracle) on the Billboard 200. The band also has 23 top ten rock radio hits, including 17 songs in the top five. The band’s seventh album, When Legends Rise was released on April 27, 2018.

Since its inception, Godsmack has toured on Ozzfest on more than one occasion, and has toured with many other large tours and festivals, including supporting its albums with its own arena tours. Godsmack has sold over 20 million records in just over a decade. In honor of the band’s success and the release of their sixth studio album, 1000hp, Mayor Marty Walsh declared August 6 as “Godsmack Day” in the city of Boston


I first became aware of Godsmack after watching the 2002 film – The Scorpion King starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and was blown away by the soundtrack and one song in particular “I Stand Alone” which is from their album Faceless – the song was nominated for two Grammy Awards for Best Rock Song and Best Hard Rock Performance.

  1. Shannon Larkin used to be the drummer for Wrathchild America back in the day. He was from Martinsburg, West Virginia USA and I used to ride by his house all the time with my friends. We were young teens / 20 somethings. He used to play local clubs and an outdoor event called Shiley Acres. He once had long hair that was black on one side and electric blue on the other. I think I still have an old photo taken with him during that time. Fond memories for sure!
