History

Jurassic 5 released their first record, Jurassic 5 EP, in 1997. In 1999, the group signed to Interscope Records and the EP was later repackaged by Interscope Records with additional tracks and released in December 1998 as the band's full-length debut album, entitled Jurassic 5 LP.[2]

This was followed by their second album (their first on a major label), Quality Control, which peaked at 43 on the Billboard 200.[3]

In 2003, they released their third album, Power In Numbers which would peak at 15 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Jurassic 5 eventually toured without Cut Chemist[4], who left the group to pursue a solo career[5]. The remaining 5 members released their fourth album, Feedback, on July 25, 2006. The album would also peak at 15th on the Billboard 200.[3]
