Fozzy is the self-titled debut album of heavy metal band, Fozzy. The album was released on October 24, 2000. The album was released by Palm Pictures and Megaforce Records.

Album concept[edit]

The album featured mostly cover songs by bands such as Dio, Twisted Sister, Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osbourne and Mötley Crüe, as Fozzy had a satirical back-story that they had spent the last 20 years in Japan being megastars and once they returned to America, they realized that many famous artists had ripped off their songs.

However, the album featured two original songs by Fozzy which included "End of Days" and "Feel the Burn", in which it was implied that the band had just recently written these songs and other bands hadn't had the chance to "rip" these songs off them.

Prior to the album's release, Megaforce had high hopes for the record, as they expected wrestling fans to flock to Fozzy and buy the record. However, the album failed commercially and only managed to sell 4,225 copies. The album also failed to chart on the Billboard 200. Due to the poor commercial reception of the album, Megaforce cancelled plans for the release of the album in Europe and a Fozzy documentary DVD as well as several other endorsements and appearances.
