THE HARD ROCK band P.O.D. emerged 10 years ago from the Southern California border town of San Ysidro.
I think it's one of the things that's helped mold and influence P.O.D.
Along with Daniels, P.O.D. (Payable on Death) includes Marcos Curiel (guitar, vocals) and cousins Noah "Wuv" Bernardo (drums, vocals) and Sonny Sandoval (lead vocals).
Criticized by metal heads for being too religious and chastised by conservative Christians for touring with the Godless rap-metal band Korn, P.O.D. has lost some of its fans by being too many different things at once.
Along with rap, metal and Jesus, P.O.D. also mixes in reggae, soul, rock, Rastafarianism and Judaism.
The group started writing the song after the Columbine High School shootings and finished immediately after the Santana High School incident, which took place in Santee, Calif., just northeast of San Diego and practically in P.O.D.'s back yard.
Complexity is not something P.O.D. does well, but emotional and lyrical simplicity seem to be part of what the group is striving for.
Although P.O.D.'s basic recipe has not been altered, the group's previous release, "Fundamental Elements of Southtown," was slightly less spiritual.
When Daniels first joined up with P.O.D., in 1992, he wasn't sure he wanted to have anything to do with rock music.
While Daniels' roots provide a soulful undercurrent to P.O.D.'s music, other members bring their own varied influences.
As have other Christian bands that crossed over onto the mainstream charts, members of P.O.D. do not like to be pigeonholed as a strictly Christian band.
