"Fuel" is a Pennsylvania-based alternative rock/post-grunge band formed by Carl Bell, Jeff Abercrombie and Brett Scallions in 1989.
The band Fuel was originally formed in 1989 in Kenton, Tennessee, but moved to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, in 1994 where they played local Pennsylvania bars and nightclubs. Their first EP ''Porcelin'' was released in 1996, and sold well locally, spawning a small radio hit with "Shimmer." The popularity of the EP brought them to the attention of Sony's 550 imprint, which released their second EP, ''Hazelton'', the following year.
The band's full length debut, ''Sunburn'', came out in 1998. "Shimmer" was again included, and almost became a Top 40 hit, while the other singles ("Bittersweet," "Jesus or a Gun," "Sunburn") received some airplay.
After laying low for two and a half years, Fuel came back with their second album, ''Something Like Human'', in 2000 and scored a Top 40 hit with "Hemorrhage (In My Hands)" (#17), as well as going platinum with the album. A third album, ''Natural Selection'', came out in 2003, and was another big seller.
Fuel released its greatest hits album, ''The Best of Fuel'' on December 13, 2005.
