"Bullet Proof Skin" served as the album's single which reached #28 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Chart and #29 on the Billboard Modern Rock Chart. It had considerable radio airplay upon release and, in September 2005, was performed live on nearly every late night television program[2] as well as The Tyra Banks Show.[3] The song was featured on the Stealth soundtrack and the video game NHL 06.
