an amazing band from Mesa, Arizona, who despite coming into the public's eye with their hit The Middle, had already made to awesome records beforehand. Still, the LP that featured The Middle, Bleed American (self-titled after 9/11) is probably their best work. Their newest album, which came out in October of 2004, was also amazing, and the song Pain got heavy radio play. They're often called 'emo' but they hate that word.
jimmy eat world's initials just happen to be 'JEW'

Jimmy Eat World are one of the best Rock/Alternative bands there are. Although they are not _Emo_ like simple plan some of their music is thought to be of this genre. J.E.W's signature song has since become 'Pain' part of their album 'Futures'.
the name was given to the band by the son of one of the members:of Jimmy slicing up and eating the world like a cake.
I if you are into Rock and do not know of this band i suggest you start listening to some of their material:-)
Clarity, Futures, Bleed American and Stay on my side tonight

Otherwise known as JEW/Jimmy. THE most amazing band I have ever heard. Their lead singer used to be Tom but then Jim took over. They are a legend of a band and oh yes I saw them :D
They have lots of albums out: Static Prevails, Bleed American (renamed Jimmy Eat World), Clarity, Futures, The Singles and have recently released their Stay on my Side tonight EP which you have to get because it is just soo good. Probably the Jimmy anthem is Sweetness because it's so original and like nothing else out there.
A band whose name will cause confusion when mentioning them in front of your parents.
super cool Jimmy kid: "aaaahhh Jimmy Eat World!!!"
super uncool kid: "Jimmy... Eat World? What?"

A band from Mesa Arizona, made up of four members: Jim Adkins, Rick Burch, Zach Lind, and Tom Linton. Basically, an amazing alternative rock band. Most known for songs such as "The Middle", "Sweetness", "A Praise Chorus"...and pretty much their entire album Bleed American, which was later editted to be another self titled album after 9/11.

They're amazing live. The guys are down to earth and very in touch with their fans.

I highly suggest checking them out. Each album is different--the band tries to avoid giving the listener an answer to the question "what a jimmy eat world song should be"...so they've done a bit of everything.
full length albums that are available: static prevails, clarity, bleed american...i mean, jimmy eat world, futures, and chase this light, which is their most recent release.

An absoultely amazing rock band from Mesa, Arizona, who a lot of people consider emo, although the band members hate that word. Either way, they're a class act with great lyrics, great music, and they put on a great show. Those of you who know the m just for The Middle need to hear they're other stuff, althouth it is quite a song.
Jimmy Eat World=Jim Adkins- guitar,lead vocals, Tom Linton- guitar, back up vocals, Rick Burch-bass, Zach Lind- drums.
