Jimmy Eat World

Add Date: September 28 

Artist: Jimmy Eat World 

Album: Invented

Label: DGC/Interscope 

Genre: Rock 

Comments: Quick, raise your hand if you knew that Jimmy Eat World was still around... Yeah, didn't think so. The intro to the band's bio on AllMusic.com pretty much sums it up: "Once a trailblazing name in the mid-'90s emocore scene, Jimmy Eat World eventually found a larger audience by embracing a blend of alternative rock and power pop that targeted the heart as well as the head." That's a very nice and diplomatic way of saying that they started making bland, generic, inoffensive drivel that they knew would get played on commercial radio. I guess it's worked?
