Chickenfoot is an American rock supergroup, consisting of former Van Halen members Sammy Hagar (vocals) and Michael Anthony (bass), solo artist Joe Satriani (guitar) and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith.

The band released their self-titled debut album, “Chickenfoot,” in June 2009. It reached #1 on the Billboard Independent and Hard Rock Albums chart, while also peaking at #4 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart. The first pressing of the album was packaged with exclusive “heat sensitive” artwork that revealed an image when touched or exposed to heat above 84 degrees Fahrenheit. It featured the single, “Oh Yeah,” which peaked at #21 on the Mainstream Rock chart.

“Chickenfoot III,” which despite its name is the band’s second album, was released in September 2011. It debuted at #2 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart. The first single, “Big Foot,” was issued in advance of the album and reached the Top 50 on the Rocks Songs chart.
