The song reached number one on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart in February 2006 during its twenty-seventh week on the chart, making it one of the slowest-rising number-one singles in the chart's history. It also spent an unprecedented ten weeks at the number two position on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. In December 2017, the RIAA gave "Wasteland" a gold certification for selling 500,000 copies. The song was originally featured on the band's independent second album Killing All That Holds You, produced by Travis Wyrick. The album was eventually reissued with four acoustic tracks. The acoustic tracks were recorded live by Mike D for Lakeside Studios.
