    The drama series became popular and was played on HBO for almost 3 years. After that they were signed by Epic Records and just after that in the next year, they released their first music album. Legitimately hailed as "the best band on Earth," the super-sized acoustic metal/parody team Steady D was an improbable example of overcoming adversity. All things considered, Constant D was most likely so fruitful unequivocally in light of the fact that they were so far-fetched: few individuals would envision that two thick folks slamming on acoustic guitars, singing melodies like a tribute to the best tune on the planet (since they overlooked how the best tune on the planet followed vanquishing the Fiend with it), ended up one of the greatest religion groups of the late '90s and 2000s.
