The All-American Rejects released their monster hit, ‘Gives You Hell’, back in 2008, which went on to become their most successful single, to date.
It reached Number 18 in the UK Charts and received regular rotation on radio and music video channels. It was also the first single to be taken from their third studio album, When The World Comes Down. Since then, the band have released another album and recently a single; we’re just waiting for the announcement of their fifth album!
‘Gives You Hell’ is certainly and in-your-face break-up anthem but the chorus can also apply to many other situations; it’s just an all-round good belter to let off some steam and what’s amazing is it’s timeless.
The music video is pretty original too and damn funny; it’s well worth a watch!
What are your thoughts of this awesome 2008 track? Doesn’t it still sound sick?! Do you still love it as much as you did back then? Have you got a #ThrowbackThursday track to recommend us? Please leave your thoughts or song suggestions in a comment or via social media.

The All-American Rejects are an amazing pop punk quartet from Oklahoma, who formed 20 years ago, this year. Having taken some time away and been rather quiet since their last full-length album, Kids In The Street, was released, back in 2012; the band are finally ready to make a return with a double A-side single, ‘Sweat’ and ‘Close Your Eyes’.
The first track, ‘Sweat’, is a real banger – it’s funky yet grungy in all the right places with Tyson‘s growly vocals weaving their way perfectly throughout.
Man it’s good to have these guys back – I can’t wait for their upcoming full-length album, due out in the Autumn.
The band have also been teasing a video for the track, with snippets being released online but we’ll update you when the full thing is released.
What are your thoughts of this band’s latest single? Got a #FeelGoodFriday track to recommend us? Please leave your thoughts or song suggestions in a comment or via social media.
