Hoobastank (typecast and stylized as H∞bastank) is the first major studio album by American rock band Hoobastank. The album proved to be the band's breakthrough album. It was released on November 20, 2001, by Island Records. Three singles were released, "Crawling in the Dark", "Running Away", and "Remember Me". It has since been certified Platinum in the United States.[4]


The album was the first to have a post-grunge sound rather than the funk metal and ska punk sound of their independent releases.Script error
