Godsmack formed out of Lawrence, Massachusetts in 1995. The bands current lineup includes singer Sully Erna, guitarist Tony Rombola, bassist Robbie Merrill, and drummer Shannon Larkin. Larkin joined Godsmack in 2002 and played on the albums Faceless, IV, the EP The Other Side, The Oracle, and their latest album 1000hp. The band has had three consecutive number 1 albums and has sold over 20 million records.
