The band signed to Universal Records in 2000 for their first record, The Better Life. They received international attention with the release of the single "Kryptonite". The single crossed over several formats, peaking at #1 on rock, alternative and pop radio. The album went on to sell over 5 million copies.
"Be Like That" was one of the main songs on the soundtrack of American Pie 2 (2001).
The follow up album proved to be just as successful. In 2002, Away from the Sun was released with the single "When I'm Gone". Featuring a video in tribute to American troops, the song remained on the charts for almost a year, again garnering multiple format airplay from rock to pop to alternative radio. The ballad "Here Without You" became another multi-format success, doing especially well in the adult contemporary space, while the singles "The Road I'm On" and "Away From The Sun" were minor hits. The album went on to sell over 3 million copies.
3 Doors Down released their third studio album, Seventeen Days, in 2005, and it debuted at #1 on the Billboard Music Chart. The album achieved platinum status in less than a month. Its first single, "Let Me Go" (originally intended for Spider-Man 2 but withheld), received much airplay, and was followed by a second song called "Behind Those Eyes." Also in 2005, World Wrestling Entertainment used "Here Without You" as one of its two tribute songs for the late Eddie Guerrero. WWE also used "Behind Those Eyes" as one of the theme songs for that year's WrestleMania 21 event.
