According to a series of short films broadcast on the Internet, Fozzy is a legendary American metal band who, unable to get out of their record contract, spent 20 years in Japan; when they returned to the U.S., lead singer Moongoose McQueen and the rest of the band found that artists like the Scorpions and Ozzy Osbourne had become stars by stealing Fozzy's material. In reality, Fozzy is fronted by WWF wrestler Chris Jericho, with the remainder of the group consisting of Atlanta rap-metal outfit Stuck Mojo. Shortly after the videos were introduced on the site UnderGroundOnline in October 2000, Fozzy's self-titled debut album was released by Palm Pictures/Megaforce as a tie-in. A short tour and an MTV special (no doubt due to the WWF's contract with the network's parent company) led to minor recognition from the metal underground, but Jericho's wrestling commitments cut the band short after its release. Still, after Stuck Mojo wrote and released an album, and Jericho won the heavyweight championship, they came back together and recorded another album, this time with writing contributions from Jericho and guitarist Rich Ward. The results, Happenstance, were released on Megaforce in the summer of 2002. The year 2005 saw the release of All That Remains, the group's first collection to feature all original material. The album sold over 100,000 copies and was generally well received by both fans and critics. Chasing the Grail, released in 2010, helped to further cement the band as not only a legitimate, populist metal act, but a force to be reckoned with as well. Released in 2012, Sin and Bones, the band's third collection of originals, premiered at number one on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, eventually making its way on to the coveted Top 200 albums chart, while 2014's Do You Wanna Start a War proved to be the band's most successful outing to date, debuting in the number 53 slot on the Billboard Top 200 and cracking the Top Ten on the Hard Rock Albums chart. ~ Steve Huey
