The band members all met while attending University of Western Ontario where they each a received a degree. Their group initially began in the late 1990s under the name bomb32 in their native London, Ontario. Comparable to acts such as 311, Stone Temple Pilots, and Helmet, they used the popular of Farmclub to promote their music. The strength of their first single, "All of the Above," earned Headstrong over a million votes from fans of the television show's site.
They became Farmclub's first international guest and were granted a performance at LA's Farmclub stage in the summer of 2000. While there, they shared the stage with the likes of Kid Rock and Eminem and caught the attention of David Bendeth, senior vice-president of A&R, who signed them afterwards. Headstrong then made their live United States debut at the CMJ Music Marathon on October 12 at Don Hills, New York. Thanks to their booking agents S.L. Feldman & Associates, Headstrong then embarked on a Canadian tour with fellow Canadians Flybanger starting in November 2001. On February 19, 2002, they released their self-titled debut under RCA. Headstrong managed to find success with its single "Adriana," which reached #15 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks and had a music video.
However, problems began erupting within the following months. In late July, Headstrong was pulled from touring with Tommy Lee in a decision reportedly made by RCA to end the band's tour support. By this time, Headstrong had also been believed to be writing and demoing new material which would possibly be showcased in their forthcoming fall concerts. However, in August, a mere six months after their debut album's release, Headstrong was dropped by RCA. The following year in late April, Headstrong decided to split up, citing disillusionment with the record label as one reason. 2) Don Jackson (Headstrong) is a English electronic music producer, song writer and musician.
