reppin: orange, ca // fiddler records

years active: 1999 - 2005

featuring: chad atkinson // blake means // ryan edwards

fun fact: the lyric "Panic at the disco / Sat back and took it so slow / Are you nervous? Are you shaking?" from their song, "Panic," is said to have been the inspiration for the name of the platinum band, Panic At The Disco

Their music is emo to the core, but contains this melodic energy that is missing from just about every other band from this era

"Hold On" is one of the more incredible albums in the 2000s time period
