P.O.D. rocks MTV’s TRL party

The Warriors strike back. The San Diego foursome P.O.D. commonly known as The Warriors newest album Satellite came out Aug. 11. P.O.D.’s first album The Fundamental Elements of Southtown became a huge success when the album went platinum on the billboard charts. However Satellite shows a band ready to move past the fundamentals and shoot for the stars.

“I like their new song ‘Alive,’ Rajani Elek, ’04, said. “because the lyrics are so good. All their songs have good lyrics also. Besides I love Sonny the lead singers dreadlocks.”

The lyrics on this album give some of the deepest looks into the members life. The band’s faith in God becomes far more evident in this album then ever before.

“Satellite is about that person, that thing in the sky watching out for you,” lead singer Sonny in an interview said. “Most people who lose somebody have that notion, that there out there looking out for you, watching your back.”

Sonny wrote the song “Satellite” about his mother who died of cancer a few years ago. P.O.D. also sang this song at a concert in the Columbine area to help comfort the students with their lost.

“I really dig Christian bands like P.O.D.,” Caleb Janeca, ’02, said, “who mix Christian lyrics with secular style music. And I can’t wait to get their new C.D.” This Christian band since 1999 became a huge appeal to the secular world.

In 1999 P.O.D. with the song “Rock the Party” became only the third rock band in history on MTV’s TRL (Total Request Live) to hit the number one video spot. Following the tradition hit single “Alive” premiered on Aug. 20 on MTV and became number two by the end of the week, and hit number one some time later.

“P.O.D. is really good,” Carson Belmont, ’05, said. “I like them a lot, because their songs are the type of music I like to listen to. ?Rock the Party’ is my favorite song and I hope P.O.D. has more songs like it on their new C.D.

P.O.D.’s new album does contain some old school songs like “Masterpiece Conspiracy”. Satellite also contains some softer songs such as “Thinking About Forever”, and a really hard core song “Portrait”.

“I love what they stand for,” Dawn Steele,’03, said. ” Their lyrics are so good and they represent a Christian lifestyle. Those are the kind of lyrics I like to hear.”

The band’s faith in God becomes very evident in Satellite. They present their faith in a very natural way on this album. P.O.D. set their goals high for this album, and hope to get a lot more respect from critics for this album.

P.O.D. fans can purchase albums at Tower Records on Blackstone Ave. in Fresno or log on to the link to the right of this article.
