After the band was signed, it started work on what would become its first full-length release. The album which was titled Rubberneck, was released in 1994. It contains the song “Possum King” which is the Toadies’ most successful single to date. The album was a success, reaching number fifty six on the Billboards 200 chart and number in the Billboard Heatseekers chart. A year after its release, the album was certified gold by the RIAA. Exactly a year after that, Rubberneck was certified platinum by the RIAA. With this newfound success, Toadies toured all over the country. They played at festivals and also opened for established bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bush, White Zombie and a few others. The band continued to tour extensively throughout the 1990s and began work on their follow-up album in 1997. This album was rejected by the band’s label. Due to this, Toadies entered the studio again and re-recorded much of the album. This revised version was released in 2000 as Hell Below Stars/Stars Above. The album was not successful and after a few years, Toadies disbanded.
The band reunited in 2006 and went on a small tour, eventually releasing another album two years later. This release was successful and Toadies have remained active since then.
