Artistfacts for P.O.D.

  • The band's name stands for Payable On Death. It comes from a banking term that means when someone passes away, their belongings go to their heir. For the band, it refers to our sins being paid for when Jesus died - our life is our inheritance.
  • P.O.D. refers to themselves as "a band made of Christians," not a Christian band. They write music for anyone and everyone - not just believers.
  • They call their fans "Warriors" because they are so loyal.
  • Some of their influences include U2, Run DMC, Bob Marley, Bad Brains, and AC/DC.
  • P.O.D. is from San Diego, in a place nicknamed the Southtown. (thanks, Kale - St. Robert, MO, for all above)
  • P.O.D.s original guitarist, Marcos Curiel, left the band in early 2003. He was replaced by Living Sacrifice's former guitar player, Jason Truby. (thanks, Kale - St. Robert, MO)

Oh yeah, and if any of you have the "Snuff the Punk" CD, then you will notice a spray-painted angel that has a demon in a headlock. Awesome!
Also, P.O.D. broke down a lot of boundaries by playing alongside bands like Korn and Kid Rock- something a lot of people would question for a christian band.
A Demon Hunter - Away From You :)
P.O.D.'s vocalist Sonny has some of the coolest dreads EVAR! At performances, he often jumps in the air and his dreadlocks fly all over the place. AND IT'S AWESOME! Very inspirational too..A Demon Hunter - Away From You :)
