Matisyahu's first major single, originally released on his 2004 debut album Shake off the Dust… Arise and again on his second studio album Youth.
A live version of the song also appeared on his album Live at Stubb's.
The song hit #28 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #7 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart.
On some limited editions of Youth and on the "King Without a Crown" three-track EP, there is a bonus track of "King Without a Crown" remixed by Mike D of the Beastie Boys.
Along with the song "Youth", "King Without a Crown" is different from other songs on the album Youth, in that it has a lengthy guitar solo more in the spirit of rock than of reggae.
King Without a Crown was also played in the movie Knocked Up.
