Coming to the forefront at the beginning of the Emocore wave, Jimmy Eat World have been around since 1993 and evolved from a punk rock band to what we now hear.
Going the indie route until the release of their self titled album and the huge single "The Middle" won them a huge following. Their sound is a mix of power pop and alternative rock which has gained them access to radio. Claiming to be influenced by the likes of Fugazi, Def Leppard, The Velvet Underground, and Jesus and Mary Chain, the band has always made music that is for the heart and the head.
When you watch/listen to this band you are hearing one of the godfathers of emo and a band who has influenced many of the younger emo bands who have come after them.
