Set It Off is the first studio album released by Thousand Foot Krutch. The album features a fusion of heavy rap metal and softer rap rock songs, mixed with some pop punk influence. Some of the songs were from their independent album, That's What People Do. It was originally released on November 14, 2000. A remastered version of the disc including six extra tracks was issued on September 7, 2004. This is the last album to feature guitarist Dave Smith, who left the band in 2002 and the only album to feature drummer Geoff Laforet, who left the band in 2001.
