At the time of the release they were performing under the name Pacifier due to potential controversy surrounding the similarity of the word Shihad to jihad. The name Pacifier was derived from the single of the same name from their previous album, The General Electric. Released in 2002, tracks such as "Run" and "Bullitproof" went on to become hit singles. "Bullitproof" peaked at #27 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks, and #37 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks. However, it still failed to break the band into the United States.
The band, and lead singer Jon Toogood especially, have since expressed displeasure with the album, calling it "overproduced", and "bullshit --- that would've been the wrong album to be big on."
One version of this album included the "Weapons of Mass Destruction" bonus disc and yet another version contained a bonus disc featuring live acoustic tracks from the "Helen Young Sessions".
