The Get Up Kids have inexplicably become the whipping boys of the emo-pop explos. It's a shame, really. The Get Up Kids have inexplicably become the whipping boys of the emo-pop explosion, taking the brunt of everyone's criticisms from Pitchfork to Buddyhead. The band has gone from meager Midwest beginnings to being the openers on national tours for Green Day and Weezer, not to mention consistently selling out their own shows across the country. And if I were burnt out, this would be the album I'd make. Gone are the bouncy, playful tracks like "I'm A Loner Dottie, A Rebel" and "Don't Hate M. Gone are the harder rockers like "10 Minutes" and "Action and Action.

The Get Up Kids were looking for a job and then they found some jobs. After the beloved Kansas punk band went on hiatus in 2011, main songwriter Matt Pryor became a farmhand - I picked radishes and tomatoes and shit and it was awesome. Guitarist/vocalist Jim Suptic went back to school and landed with the United States Geological Survey, before taking his current gig at Steps For Faith, a non-profit for low-income amputees started by Billy Brimblecom, his former bandmate in Blackpool Lights. Katis engineered and mixed the Get Up Kids’ largely acoustic and thus divisive 2002 album On A Wire while developing a voluminous, elegant production style that would come to define A-list indie rock for the rest of the decade. He started the first Interpol record, did our record, and finished theirs.
The Get Up Kids' hyper melodies, heartfelt lyrics, and punk-driven, high-energy sound helped them become one of the most popular and influential of the second wave of emo bands that crested in the late '90s. After a series of singles and a scrappy debut album, 1997's Four Minute Mile, they released the critically acclaimed Something to Write Home About album in 1999. Over the next few years, their sound shifted to a more mature and measured approach.
