My Take
I was surprised as I listened to their music on youtube that, other than “World So Cold,” I didn’t really know one song by Three Days Grace. Most of their videos have millions of views but I have not been one of those millions. A few I had vague recollections of hearing before but I couldn’t have sung along to any of them. That being said, now that I have listened to them, they have a bunch of catchy rock songs that will play well at a festival where many will not know their music. “I Hate Everything About You,” “World So Cold,” and “Never Too Late” are my favorites so far. Too bad routing didn’t allow them to be matched up on the same day as Cavo, Hinder, and Kid Rock as I think that would have been a great night of newer rock that would have brought in a lot of first timers to the jam. I don’t know that having them spread out will be able to bring in as many fans as having them all the same night would have.

Did You Know?
The band formed in Canada in 1992 as Groundswell.

2006’s One-X reached #5 in the US while 2009’s Life Starts Now peaked at #3.
Both of those hit #2 in Canada.

Another great write-up! Just so happen to know over half the songs in the list and I don't even own one of their records...yet :D . Gonna be a very energetic show, so looking forward to it.
