"Leader of Men" was released in March 2000 as lead single for their album, The State.
The band's first successful single, the song reached the US rock charts, peaking at number eight on Mainstream Rock Tracks and number 21 on Modern Rock Tracks. It remained in the top ten of the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart for 10 weeks straight.
The song received two music videos. One by MuchMusic and one by Roadrunner Records. The MuchMusic music video shows Chad and company throwing out all the electronics in a house and destroying them. The Roadrunner Records music video shows the band playing in a recording room while a riot takes place outside.
The song is about the time Chad tripped on magic mushrooms, and also about the time he saved a girl from drowning.
