Late 90's or Early 2000's soft metal help!

Talk about vague! I can play this song from start to finish on guitar but can't remember the band, song, or one damn word. How is that possible? It's late 90's or early 2000's. The opening is heavy and sounds like "Chevelle" but the chorus and solo are very "feel good" sounding.

The song is played in drop d tuning and the opening is heavy open to 8th fret power chord pull offs on the low e and a strings. The verse is the same thing only palm muted. There is a build up to the solo and the solo is very simple, played on the a and d string 3rd, 5th and 7th frets then it slides up and repeats the exact same riff on the 10th, 12th and 14th frets.

I realize how vague this is but I'm on two weeks of a massive effort to identify this song. You know that feeling when you can't think of a song. That is why this site exists. Being able to play it is making it something I can't let go. Guitarists or efficianados, please help. The song was played on X103 Rock alternative in the U.S.
