''Start a War'' is the fourth Static-X album; it was released in June 2005. A special version was shipped with an additional DVD disc titled ''X-Rated''.

The album marks the return of former guitarist Koichi Fukuda, (although he did not play any guitars on the album, he did help with the programming), the first studio album with drumming provided by Nick Oshiro, and the second and last album that guitarist Tripp Eisen wrote and performed on. The album continues the change in sound found on Shadow Zone but many of the songs featured on Start a War are Heavier and feature a lot more screaming and aggressive lyrics. Songs that best show this are I Want To Fucking Break It, The Enemy, and Start a War. The whole tone of the album is more aggressive then Shadow Zone. The song Pieces features a Guitar solo; this is a interesting note because the band did not perform them on past albums,, but on the band's next album named Cannibal guitar solos play a much bigger part on the band's music. Start a War is also the last album to feature one the bands unique Otsego songs. When asked about the album, Wayne Static said - "''We wanted to try to recreate the fun spirit of Wisconsin Death Trip; having Koichi back, with his flavor, helped.''" - Wikipedia
