After stabilizing their line-up, Megadeth released a string of platinum-selling albums, including Countdown to Extinction, certified double platinum. This album, along with touring worldwide, would aid in bringing Megadeth to public recognition. In 2002, Megadeth was temporarily disbanded because of Mustaine's arm injury, but the band re-established in 2004, performing without bassist David Ellefson because he had taken legal action against Dave Mustaine. Ellefson would rejoin the group in 2010, and has been featured on all recordings since. In the summer of 2005, Megadeth launched its own music festival, Gigantour, which had several editions over the years. However, the group has experienced some controversy because of its musical approach and lyricism, including cancelled concerts and album bans. MTV has refused to play two of the band's videos because the television considered them to evoke suicide.
