The "Chaos Ridden Years - Stockholm Knockout Live" DVD was recently certified gold in Canada. The disc, which debuted at No. 20 on the Canadian chart (the band's highest-ever chart position in Canada), mainly focuses on the February 5, 2006 live concert in Stockholm, Sweden, featuring over 90 minutes of live excitement. Finalizing the material on this super-packed DVD are two interviews/documentary-type films about the band's past, present and future directed by Yka Jarvinen (Indie Films OY), a "making of the DVD," and photo gallery.
