Godsmack has more Top 10 Rock Songs than Foo Fighters or their hometown heroes, Aerosmith. Stretching back to their four-times platinum self-titled debut, initially recorded in 1996 for $2500, the veteran band’s catalog of hits is enough to fill a marathon set without running out. Songs like “I Stand Alone,” “Awake,” and “Voodoo” are certified anthems deeply encoded into hard rock’s DNA.
Staind has recorded seven studio albums, its most successful in the early 2000s, “Break the Cycle” going five times platinum in the United States and producing a top-five Billboard Hot 100 hit with its lead single “It's Been Awhile.” Break the Cycle, along with the band's following two full-length albums, also topped the Billboard 200, and the two after peaked within the top five. Several of their other singles also became rock and pop hits, including “Fade,” “For You,” “Price to Play,” “So Far Away,” and “Right Here.” (Wikipedia)

She famously wrote the hook to (and served as the featured vocalist on) “Same Love” from her perspective, identifying as a Christian and a lesbian. The song earned two Grammy nominations in 2014 and culminated with an epic performance, featuring a mass wedding officiated by Queen Latifah and an unforgettable duet by Mary Lambert and Madonna. Mary also experienced viral success with “She Keeps Me Warm” followed by “Secrets,” which climbed to Number 1 on the Billboard Dance charts.
