  1. Dosage

    Dosage is the fourth studio album by the American alternative rock band Collective Soul. The album was released on Atlantic Records in February 1999 and peaked at #21 in Billboard's albums chart. The album's title was derived from a catchphrase they used to describe burnout after their previous tour. The first single from the album, "Heavy," gave the band another #1 hit on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and spent a then record-breaking 15 weeks on the top spot. "Heavy" was also featured in the opening of the video game NHL 2001. The second single released, "Run," also gained broad mainstream radioplay and was featured on the soundtrack for the 1999 film Varsity Blues. Over nine years after the album's release date, the single "Tremble for My Beloved" was featured in the 2008 film, Twilight and its accompanying soundtrack. In 2012, the band performed the album in its entirety during their Dosage Tour.
