Train is an American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1994. The band currently comprises a core trio of Patrick Monahan (lead vocalist), Jimmy Stafford (guitar), and Scott Underwood (drummer).
Train achieved mainstream success with their debut album, Train, which was released in 1998. Their second album, Drops of Jupiter (2001) brought the band massive popularity. The lead single from the album, "Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me)", was an international hit and won two Grammy Awards in 2002. The album was certified double platinum in the United States and Canada and remains the band's best-selling album to date.
Their third studio album, My Private Nation, released in 2003, continued the band's success, and was certified platinum in the United States. The band released their fourth album, For Me, It's You in 2006. Despite a generally positive reception from critics, the album was commercially unsuccessful. Train then went on a three-year hiatus.
Train re-united and released their latest album, Save Me San Francisco in 2009. The first single from the album, "Hey, Soul Sister" became the band's most successful single in their career, charting in the top three on the Billboard Hot 100 and reaching the top ten in several other countries.
