The band's five studio albums have sold over 17 million copies in the United States alone. The band has had fifteen top ten singles on the Billboard rock charts, including six number ones, and one number one album on the pop charts (1994's Purple). In 1993, the band won a Grammy for "Best Hard Rock Performance" for their song "Plush". Stone Temple Pilots were also ranked at number 40 on VH1's The 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock. In 2003, the band released the greatest hits compilation Thank You. Around this time, band members began going their separate ways. After the band's break-up in 2003 , original lead singer Scott Weiland became the frontman of Velvet Revolver with former members of Guns N' Roses. The DeLeo brothers formed the band Army of Anyone with Richard Patrick of the band Filter. Kretz founded Bomb Shelter Studios in Los Angeles.
The band reunited in 2008 after Weiland split from Velvet Revolver, kicking off the tour at the Rock on the Range festival in Columbus, Ohio. The band released their self titled sixth album in 2010.
Scott Weiland was fired from the band in February 2013; the remaining band members then hired Chester Bennington, of Linkin Park fame, to carry on as lead singer.

- LyricsWaitin', on a Sunday afternoon
For what I read between the lines
Feelin', like a hand in rusted shame
So do you laugh, or does it cry?
- LyricsAnd I feel that time's a wasted go
So where you going 'till tomorrow?
And I see that these are lies to come
So would you even care?
And I feel it
- LyricsOne time a thing occurred to me
What's real and what's for sale?
Blew a kiss and tried to take it home
Isn't you, isn't me
Search for things that you can't see
- LyricsForward yesterday
Makes me wanna stay
What they said was real
Makes me wanna steal
Livin' under house
- LyricsDriving faster in my car
Falling farther from just what we are
Smoke a cigarette and lie some more
These conversations kill
Falling faster in my car
