The album was certified two-times platinum by the RIAA.[2]

Alice in Chains was the last album to feature lead singer Layne Staley. He was later found dead of a heroin overdose on April 5, 2002. The next album, Black Gives Way to Blue was released in 2009, with new vocalist William DuVall.

The album is sometimes referred to as Tripod because of Jerry Cantrell's three-legged dog on the front cover and Frank Lentini on the back cover.[3]
