Hinder started crafting cocky, raucous post-grunge in the early 2000s, when Oklahoma City residents Joe Garvey and drummer Cody Hanson found Austin Winkler singing cover songs at a college party. The three formed the nucleus of Hinder, and the band began landing gigs opening locally for such bands as Theory of a Deadman. ensemble changes brought guitarist Mark King and bass player Mike Rodden into the fold, and the quintet signed with Universal after issuing a self-released EP. Their 2005 full-length debut, Extreme Behavior, became one of the year’s most successful albums, climbing to triple-platinum status and sending “Lips of an Angel” to number three on the singles charts. Hinder came back several years later with a second batch of party anthems entitled Take It to the Limit. The group put forth their third album, All American Nightmare, in 2010.
