Kryptonite is a song by American alternative rock band 3 Doors Down.
It was originally released as a demo for a radio station in Mississippi. But now it's got to be the song that eventually got the band known internationally.
Every rock music lover must have been heard about the band 3 Doors Down, a successful rock band, formed in 1996. They had a huge strike with hits like the one that we're discussing here or Here Without You.
This song was written by Brad Arnold and it was released in 2000. At first, the song was a demo, but along with the apparition of the band’s first album, The Better Life, the song was released in a full version.

Its success is mostly because of this single, helping the album sell over 6 million copies worldwide.
The song got top of the list for Mainstream Rock Chart, Modern Rock Tracks and Pop Songs for a while.
The music video is about heroes, actually an old hero, that gets beaten, but still tries to save the world. It’s kind of inspirational and the lyrics are a better proof of that, as they present a man that wants to be a hero, that addresses the people he saves, telling them that he will always be there for them and he’ll try to save them whenever he can, even if he "goes crazy".
Being a renowned song, it demanded a video to live up the expectations.
In fact, the song's video presents the story of an old man who wants to save a girl from being beaten up. In his struggle, he forgets to defend himself. He is assaulted by a Goth band. Eventually, he gets rid of them and he succeeds to save the girl from the first scene.
Kryptonite is a catchy song that was taken over by the radios in a very short time, gaining fans all over the world. Among them, a couple of game producers felt attracted to this song, therefore they used it in some music video games, like Guitar Hero or Rock Band Unplugged.
The message that this song transmits is related to the idea of remaining alongside someone at his worst and, also, at this worse..Besides that, it has an attractive cadency that spawned excellent piano notes.
