The album ''Cockroach'' went through some legal issues; it was was recorded in 1993, after which Ted Poley was fired. Naturally, Poley was not happy, so he ended up suing. The album eventually did get released in 2001 with two discs, one with vocals by Poley and one recorded by replacement vocalist Paul Laine.

In 2004, Laine left and Poley returned, with the album ''Revolve'' being his first Danger Danger Album since ''Cockroach''.
