Formed in 1992 in San Diego, CA, this Christian nu-metal quartet, whose name stands for "Payable on Death," first broke onto the mainstream scene at the peak of rapcore's moment in 1999. Massive hits "Southtown" and "Rock The Party" off their first platinum record The Fundamental Elements of Southtown set the pace for vocalist Sonny Sandoval, guitarist Marcos Curiel, bassist Traa Daniels and drummer Wuv Bernardo's career to follow. Sonically, super-slick production helps these god-fearing SoCal boys create a tidal wave of sound with hip-hop-rhythmed choruses rising over screaming guitars, growling vocals and pounding drumbeats. After 20 years together, P.O.D. are still going strong, with a new album reportedly in the works for 2012.
