History[change | change source]

The band released an album in 1999 called The Fundamental Elements of Southtown, which became very popular, and P.O.D. made a lot of fans who saw the band on MTV.

In 2001, P.O.D. made a second album called Satellite, which had a more nu metal post-grunge vibe and several hit songs, like "Boom," "Alive," "Youth of the Nation," "Set It Off," "Satellite," and "Portrait." In 2003, P.O.D. made the album Payable On Death, which had a heavy neo-grunge sound and a hint of reggae.

Their next album, Testify, was released in 2006. It was similar to Satellite in sound and featured two duets with Matisyahu. In 2008, P.O.D. released the album When Angels & Serpents Dance.
