Default

Vancouver's Default fit the definition of straight-ahead hard rock in the early years of the 21st century: the guitar textures and melodic bent of grunge; the dark, brooding earnestness of post-grunge; and the deep, thick-sounding production (but not the rap influences) of new alternative metal. Default was formed as the Fallout in summer 1999 by guitarist Jeremy Hora and drummer Danny Craig, four-year veterans of the local Vancouver music scene; after auditioning several vocalists, they settled on former high school classmate Dallas Smith, whose power made up for his inexperience. The group recorded a demo with an unidentified bassist, and it fell into the hands of Nickelback's Chad Kroeger, who knew Hora and Craig from one of their previous bands. Kroeger offered to produce their independent recording sessions, and the group began gigging around Vancouver. In 2000, they entered a talent competition sponsored by a local radio station and won a spot on the Vancouver Seeds 2000 sampler CD, shortly before they changed their name to Default. Their song "Deny" subsequently became a smash hit on local rock radio, which led to a deal with TVT Records. Bassist Dave Benedict joined the band full-time not long after. Thus constituted, Default entered the studios with producer Rick Parashar in spring 2001 and recorded their official debut album, The Fallout; it was released later that year. Their follow-up, Elocation, came out in late 2003. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

Speaks volumes <3<3<3
this song gives me strength to keep carrying on
Love this song it's bad a**
im forgiven?
I <3 Default
My sister used to date Dallas Smith back in the day met him numerous times not a bad guy, just wish he would of stuck to rock and not country ha
Default hurry up and release some new music. :)
I can see where people think they're ripping off of others' work, but I disagree. Every band has its own style, even if some of them borrow from one another. Besides, every band ever is borrowing from those who came before. Just like how we borrow ideas from others to apply to what we, personally, do in life. Some borrow more than others.

Take that as you will. I like Default well enough, but I like Audioslave better.
Awesome band name: Vocalist: set to default, Band: set to default, cheesy pop tune? Also default. Perfect name, whereas there's not a lick of originality in the band!

Someone hasn't herd them live. No auto tune in this song.
There isn't any autotuning @jesse_james 9 0 1 learn something about music
Best voice in rock. I wish more bands were this good!
You can hear a bit of autotuning being used. But besides that, its a good song
Every metal genre you'll need right here.
Like the song. Can totally relate.
Good song..if you agree follow me and I will follow back.
Default? A rip off?!! O ur both full of S**t. The lyrics are deeper and better than both, the guitar is so kick a**, and Dallas Smith has one of the best voices in 21st century alternative rock. The fact they are as overlooked in this country as they are is a black eye on the genre. Can't wait for album number five guys!!
Creed ripoff? They sound more like a Nickleback if anything
Such a powerful voice that the lead singer has. This is alternative rock the way it should sound.
mtbaird2
Creed ripoff
They sound exactly like a dozen other bands with good production and a good singer- but unfortunatel y boring and completely unoriginal and uninspired
One of the best rock voices around.
bobonnit is a b**ch default is an excellent band
Another sound alike group of losers who copies all the other loser bands from that period.
i cant belive ive never heard or heard of these guys before
They kinda sound like a mix of Creed, Puddle of Mudd and Nickelback.
favorite band ever.
One thing remains... *Default* is just that amazing! I love their great music! ; )
I think Default is like, By Default, we have to listen to their music because their work is that amazing by Default =-)
Excellent Band!!!....N e e d a different name, it just doesn't fit. One of thoes bands thats so damn close to really doin it & making it big! Hope it happens for em....LOTZ of talent there!:)
its like seether :D
they have a new album that still isnt here :(
sounds like pearl jam some what
Default? How'd they select that name? I think they missed a golden opportunity to not have to name all their albums and just call them all Album with numbers on the end. But then again that's only something a jaded hipster band would do.

Its funny, i dont typically listen to bands like Nickleback or those kind of bands but i actually must say i really do enjoy Default, they have great lyrics and a really awsome sound, their different and bring a great new light to this kind of music. I can see my self listening to them in the future.
Underrated would be an understateme n t .
Default was so good what ever happened to them?
This is a great song. Can't believe it's been 10 years since it came out!
nixfix
Never heard this song before. I read the lyrics and listened to the vocals. Just perfect!
Saw this band at a small venue in Columbus,Ohi o in 2005, @Newport,wow ! probably the most solid best sounding band Ive ever seen!
leticia_m_bo n i l l a
yes they should
This is the best band that no one knows about! They should be bigger.
They're no Creed, I'll tell you that.
Ok.. Three AMAZING things that came from Canada... 1. Nickelback 2. Three Days Grace 3. Default
Default? Woo hoo! The two sweetest words in the English
language: de-fault! De-fault! De-fault!
i love! the lead singers voice!!
I SAW DEFAULT LIVE IN A SMALL VENUE... THEY WERE AWESOME! SOUNDED GREAT!! BEAUTIFUL TO LOOK AT! I WILL DEF CATCH THEM NEXT TIME THEY COME BY!
They went soft. they suck now.
