The band is best known for its song "The Lumberjack", which features a chainsaw solo by lead singer Jesse James Dupree. On the recording, Dupree alternately revs the chainsaw's engine or uses the chain brake to slow the engine down to change the pitch. He also performs this stunt live and the number typically climaxes with Dupree slicing up a wooden stool onstage, smashing it, and throwing the sliced pieces out to the crowd. He once had been asked, "How the hell can you play a chainsaw?", to which he responded, "How the hell can you not play a chainsaw?"
Debut album 
In 1992, Jackyl's self-titled debut album was released under Geffen Records and eventually went platinum. It features a song entitled "She Loves My Cock," which was omitted from edited versions, as were suggestive elements on the album's cover art. When a K-Mart in Georgia refused to sell Jackyl, the band played an impromptu concert in front of the store. Footage of the event was used for the music video of their single "I Stand Alone."
Push Comes to Shove 
Cut the Crap 
Choice Cuts 
Stayin' Alive 
Later that year, Stayin' Alive was released. However, while recognized as Jackyl's fourth studio album, of the eleven tracks, the album features three cover songs and three live versions of previously released songs.
Foot Fetish (solo album) 
Open Invitation 
Less than a month after the events of the September 11, 2001 attacks, Jackyl recorded and released "Open Invitation," which received wide airplay and featured lyrics that included, "I hate you bin Laden" and "You’ve got an open invitation to kiss our ass." The song mixed in clips from George C. Scott's portrayal of George S. Patton giving a speech to his soldiers in the movie Patton and President George W. Bush reading from the Bible's Shepherd's Psalm Psalm 23:4. The band has described their song and lyrics as: "This song is written in the key of 'ANGER' that such a thing can happen in this country. It's not directed toward any religious group or race of people. It is directed toward those 'assholes' responsible."
20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Jackyl 
The following year, a second greatest hits compilation was produced entitled 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Jackyl.
When Moonshine and Dynamite Collide 
In 2010, the band released When Moonshine and Dynamite Collide.
Best in Show and concurrent release of Up to No Good by Nigel Dupree Band 
Later on in 2012, the band started working on a new album, and laid down tracks for a song called "Screwdriver" which is to be released on their album Best in Show on July 31, 2012. For the first time ever, in honor of Father's Day, Jackyl and Nigel Dupree Band (the latter fronted by vocalist Nigel Thomas Dupree, son of Jesse James Dupree) are releasing their studio albums simultaneously. Best in Show and Up to No Good (the latter being the 2012 album from the Nigel Dupree Band) are set to be released on July 31, 2012. The first singles from Best in Show and Up to No Good, titled "Screwdriver" and "Tumbleweed", respectively, were issued concurrently on June 17, 2012, with an add date at radio of June 26, 2012.
Appearance on The New Tom Green Show 
Dupree appeared on an episode of The New Tom Green Show in which he attacked Green's desk with a chainsaw, writing the word "Tom" across the front as a joke, and even cut off a corner for the audience to have as a souvenir. Green was not amused by the joke, and sarcastically insulted Dupree continually. Later, during a musical performance in which Green backed Dupree on the drums, he abandoned the song halfway through, saying Dupree was a "dork".
Guinness World Records 
Jackyl has set two Guinness world records, one for playing 100 concerts in 50 days, and one for performing 21 concerts in a 24-hour period, though the latter has since been broken.
Full Throttle Saloon 
Dupree and Jackyl can now be seen regularly on TruTV's hit show Full Throttle Saloon, a reality show which documents the happenings at the famous South Dakota saloon during the crazy days of the Sturgis bike rally. Dupree is close friends with the saloon owner, Mike Ballard, and also produces the show.
