Background edit

Upon release, the album came with a DVD that featured six music videos for songs on the album directed and produced by Roy Miles of AntiDivision. It was re-released by Reprise Records on November 9, 2004. This release did not include the DVD, but it did include two additional tracks, "Teenagers from Mars" and "Hammer of the Gods". The song "Roshambo" was featured in the video game NHL 2005 [8], and "Teenagers from Mars" was featured in the video game Tony Hawk's American Wasteland [9]. The album was later released on vinyl by Adeline Records in 2011 and 2015, but only featured the 12 tracks from the original release. In 2022, the album was repressed once again, this time including the two bonus tracks[10]. This release was exclusive to 1-2-3-4 Go! Records, a record store in Oakland, California.
