The song ranked among the top songs on the Billboard Charts in 1997, reaching #18 on the Modern Rock Tracks, and also #28 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks. It made number 4 on the Dutch Top 40. "Fire Water Burn" was remixed for the CD single by God Lives Underwater. It appeared in the soundtrack of Fahrenheit 9/11, The Nutty Professor and CKY4.
