A Public Disservice Announcement is the second album by the band Methods of Mayhem, released on September 21, 2010. It is the band's first album since their self-titled debut album, which was released in 1999.

Album information[edit]

The album, produced by Scott Humphrey, is unique in that it is composed partially of renditions and parts submitted by individuals from around the world based on the demos (stems) of each song that were posted online at thepublicrecord.com. Both the band and Humphrey listened to the recordings, which numbered over 10,000 – choosing the best and most fitting submission ideas to add to the songs final mix. In speaking about those who submitted their parts to the music, vocalist Tommy Lee said that:[2]

"There is a lot of undiscovered talent out there, from kids just getting started, to shirt tuckers who have a 9 to 5 that just rock out in a bar band on the weekends. They don't want to be famous, but those guys are stars."

A music video for "Time Bomb" was released.[3] The song has peaked at number 42 on the US Rock Songs Chart.
