The Southern California-based quartet is everywhere these days, from headlining the MTV Campus Invasion Tour here in the U.S., preparing to kick off their European tour, signing on to the Spiderman 2 soundtrack and -- perhaps most impressively -- currently boasting the # 6 best-selling album in the country and the #1 hottest single for The Reason, according to Billboard.
Even with their hectic schedule, the guys from Hoobastank wanted to do something special for their fans at spawn.com.
