This is the first band I actually went to see, as in another city. I really liked them back then, but kind of forgot about them lately. But since a week or 2 I've been addicted to their version of "Boys of Summer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIfiQePVbqU)". Fantastic cover if you ask me.

I only own "Blue Skies, Broken Hearts... Next 12 Exits", so I downloaded their discography, except for the latest release 'Welcome the Night'. I'm now listening to "Not Capable of Love (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BsgU-HBv1Oc)" from that album, which also sounds very good, so I might buy the album.

Sure they have a few whiney, lyrically less-than-good songs, but damn I like the raw sound of the vocalist.

Any thoughts on this band?

I love "San Dimas Highschool Football Rules". Other than that, it's kinda blurry. I saw them in concert twice. They were okay... nothing special. The newest album I bothered getting was So Long Astoria, and it was just getting too poppy for my interest. Some good songs on there... but blue skies is the best album.

All I ever liked was this remake. They had another video. I think it was called something like "Saddest Song." When I heard that song I instantly didn't like them anymore. I know, not liking a band based on a music video is pretty stupid when they have many more songs that I can listen to, but I just wasn't interested anymore and I was quite lazy. =]

I just looked up their latest single... it's horrible. They went completely emo, and not even decent emo. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BsgU-HBv1Oc

Eww.

That's In This Diary. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jz9ykJlWHnQ It's alright song. He is soooo annoying to watch sing live.

And The Radio Still Sucks is a great song! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hMPdUdBFaNI

Im not a huge Atari's fan but say what you want about them, the lead singer is a really good songwriter.
