In 1992 they blasted into the mainstream with their second album "Meantime", which featured their most known song "Unsung". The band also released "Give It" and "In the Meantime" as singles, but both songs flopped in sales and didn't receive as much attention as "Unsung". Helmet's two albums "Strap It On" and "Meantime" were both so groundbreaking that it spawned many watered down imitator bands that ripped from Helmet's sound, the most prominent three being Korn, Deftones and Tool. This move infuriated and disgusted the band, giving them the desire to do something much more experimental to alienate themselves from their imitators.
In 1994, Helmet released their third album "Betty"; a much more melodic album which owed more to bluesy and jazzy heavy metal, which featured the songs "Wilma's Rainbow" and "Milquetoast", both of which became minor hits on modern rock radio. Helmet have gone on to release 3 more albums and still remain a favorite of Modern rock, Hard rock and Heavy metal fans today.
