Two years later they made their major-label introduction with ANThology, issued in March 2001. Their debut single "Movies" was re-released after the success of their second single "Smooth Criminal", a funky metal mix of Michael Jackson's original song and pop kids of the TRL generation loved it. The song hit number one on the modern rock charts, and the album eventually went platinum. A year later and in between tours of Europe, the band was back in the studio recording new music. The track "Bug Bytes" was featured in the Tobey Maguire flick Spider-Man in May 2002. Following the success of ANThology, Alien Ant Farm hit the studio to record their follow-up record.
TruANT was issued in May 2003, right as Dreamworks was dissolving as a label. As a result, the album barely made a splash on the U.S. charts, though the single "These Days" managed to crack the Top 30. Guitarist Corso subsequently exited the group and was replaced by Joe Hill, formerly of Spiderworks. Zamora next left for college after recording of the band's fourth effort wrapped. Up in the Attic appeared in July 2006 on New Door Records, as hardcore vet Alex Barreto (Chain of Strength, Inside Out) entered on bass. Alien Ant Farm simultaneously released the DVD BUSted, which included music videos, live footage and a candid documentary.
