Between the Gravy and Stuffing, we took a dive into ‘Emo Pop,’ and one of the most successful bands of the genre is the All-American Rejects. Between 2000-2010 it was easier to hear them on the radio than to avoid them. And there’s good reason their songs were played so often, they’re catch as hell. They have a ton of pop-sensibilities! Here’s what we found on our deep dive into AAR, plus a GREAT chat in Bonus Content on the term ‘Emo-Pop’ and ‘Emo-Pop/Punk.’ BONUS starts at 8:42.
