Never has the phrase “he shoots, he scores” been more applicable than when mentioning rabid hockey fan and singer/songwriting super man John Ondrasik. The Californian, who goes by Five for Fighting (a five-minute penalty for on-the-ice fist-a-cuffs), burst on the scene some 15 years ago with his Grammy Award-nominated hit “Superman (It’s Not Easy),” and has been a mainstay on mainstream radio ever since. While he doesn’t wear tights and fight crime as his breakthrough track might suggest (in title anyway), Ondrasik’s songs could bring any maniacal villain to their knees with his poignantly-sharp songs that cut deeper than a Ginsu knife.
In a career spanning twenty years and six albums, he’s sold over 2.5 million albums, including the platinum America Town and The Battle For Everything. The aforementioned “Superman” went Platinum, was #1 on Adult Top 40, #2 on Hot AC, and in the Top 40 Top 10. His “100 Years” went 2X Platinum, and didn’t just melt hearts, it gave just about every age group a buffet of nostalgia or – at the very least – an endless need for some Kleenex. Other notable tracks include the certified gold “Chances,” the certified awesome “What If,” AAA #1 “Easy Tonight,” and the mega-hit “The Riddle.”
