About The Artist

Employing a punishing but affable blend of hard rock and heavy metal, Fozzy is a San Antonio, Texas-based outfit fronted by WWE (formerly WWF) wrestler Chris Jericho. Emerging in 1999, the group issued two collections of mostly cover songs before shifting their focus to all-original material with the release of 2005’s All That Remains. Since then, Jericho and core members Rich Ward (guitar) and Frank Fontsere (drums) have issued a string of Billboard-charting efforts like Sin and Bones (2012), Judas (2017), and Boombox (2022) that pair glossed-up modern metal with classic hard rock.

According to a series of short online films, Fozzy originated as a legendary American metal band who, unable to get out of their record contract, spent 20 years in Japan. When they returned to the U.S., lead singer Moongoose McQueen and the rest of the group found that artists like the Scorpions and Ozzy Osbourne had become stars by stealing Fozzy’s material. In reality, Fozzy is led by WWE wrestler Chris Jericho, with the remainder of the group initially consisting of Atlanta rap-metal outfit Stuck Mojo.
