A Lethal Dose of American Hatred is the second album by sludge metal band Superjoint Ritual. Former "touring only" bassist Hank Williams III played on this album. Nearly every song begins with a count-in by Phil Anselmo. "Waiting for the Turning Point" and "Stealing a Page or Two From Armed & Radical Pagans" are finished versions of the two bonus demos released on their first album, Use Once and Destroy. A Lethal Dose of American Hatred is the last full-length studio album until 2016. They disbanded in December 2004 and reformed in October 2014.

Music videos[edit]

"Waiting for the Turning Point" and "Dress Like a Target" both had music videos. As considerably short songs, they both found significant airplay on heavy metal programs and consist largely of live performance.
