Welcome To… The All-American Rejects: 25 Songs You Need In Your Life

Who doesn’t love The All-American Rejects? The band started in the early 2000s with their self-titled debut. In 2005, The All-American Rejects garnered tons of attention with their hit singles, “Dirty Little Secret,” “Move Along,” and “It Ends Tonight,” all from their second album, Move Along. They earned a hit again in 2008 with “Gives You Hell” from When The World Comes Down. Their last album, 2012’s Kids In The Street, didn’t produce such big hits, but it is an excellent (and underrated) record.
