Mushroomhead is the first album from heavy metal[2][3] band Mushroomhead. Released independently in Cleveland, Ohio in 1995. Some songs have been remastered on XX. Many of the songs contain samples from movies. This is the only album to feature the original line-up, as members Mr. Murdernickel and DJ Virus would leave the band after the album was released. The album was repressed in 2002 along with Superbuick and M3 with alternate artwork, though some major retailers do not carry them. In 2001, the album had sold over 47,000 copies, a considerable number for an album not available in most chain stores and retail markets.[4]
