To date, the Grammy-nominated EXTREME have released five albums, plus a greatest hits set–selling over 10 million records worldwide. They also achieved a #1 hit single, “More Than Words”–from their 1990 multi-platinum album Extreme II: Pornograffitti–on the Billboard Hot 100, which they followed with the Top Five “Hole Hearted.” Although these two acoustic hits brought the band great mainstream success, the band’s trademark sound has always been more a mix of hard rock funk–fueled by guitar virtuoso Nuno Bettencourt’s signature style, Gary Cherone’s resonant vocals and socially conscious lyrics, Pat Badger’s rock solid bass, and the hard hitting Kevin Figueiredo on drums.
