The 2004 album Smack Smash, led by catchy singles Hand in Hand, I Don't Care As Long As You Sing, and Hello Joe, was their commercial and critical breakthrough. It would also net the band an MTV Europe award for Best German Act, and an appearance on MTV's Viva La Bam. 2007 album Limbo Messiah debuted at #3 on the German album charts, the highest chart position in their career.
