A band that will, in the near future, save the punk genre. Face it, hardcore assholes. Anyone who says "YLWCRD IZNT PNK" Has probably not heard the album WHERE WE STAND or the new single "Lights and Sounds". OCEAN AVENUE was not a punk album and neither was the song of the same title, but the one after it was and the one just released this year (LIGHTS AND SOUNDS) has a few punk-ish songs.
They are often confused for Yellow Card, which is a penalty in soccer. Also, stupid teenyboppers sometimes say "OMGZ! YLWCRD HZ A VIOLIN!!! THR SO ORIGNL!!!". Blue October has a violin. Led Zeppelin has an organ. Panic! at the Disco has a techno keyboard, piano, organ, and accordion. Which band is most original?
Yellowcard will release another album in 2007 or 2008.
Dick - Yellow Card rocks! They're so original with the violin!!!
Me - It's Yellowcard not Yellow Card, and Panic! at the Disco have more instruments than any other band in existence.

Rock band with a violin. Fans can be categorized.

The purist: "The Underdog EP is awesome but they compeltely sold out and their new stuff is shit."

The bandwagon: "Ocean Avenue is a good song. OMG OLOL LIEK YEY I LUV YELLOWCARD OMG."

The hater: "Yellowcard is complete shit."

The basic: "Hey, I like this Yellowcard song. Hey, I also like this other song. Let me go buy that cd. Hey, I also like a lot of these songs."
Yellowcard has a violinist that does backflips.

Yellowcard is a great Pop-Rock band. They rocketed to fame with "Ocean Avenue", and have since racked up fans.

Their singles include "Way Away" (<- One of their recent best) "Ocean Avenue" (Coughsuckscough) and "Only One"(Should Not Be A Single).

Their past albums include "The Underdog EP" and "One For The Kids".
How to tell Apart Yellowcard Fans:

When asked their favorite YC song...

A longtime fan would say something from Underdog EP.

A more recently recruited fan would say "Way Away".

A gay MTV watching bandwagoner would say "Ocean Avenue". They also would think Ocean Avenue is Yellwocard's first single and album.

An obsessive-compulsive MeLoveYouLongTime fan would say something from "Midget Tossing".

a yellowcard is a party foul or unacceptable behavior at a party, such as spilling beer or being too loud.
Matt: Jenny spilled her beer all over the couch
Phil: YELLOWCARD!

1. A punk rock band with roots in Jacksonville, CA. They consist of Ryan Key, Sean Mackin, Ben Harper, Pete Mosely, and Longineu Parson better known as LP. They are one of the few bands to have a violinist in the lineup and they played 2004 Warped Tour.
2. According to the band, "yellowcard" was another way of saying "party foul".
3. A soccer term, that someone else defines really well.
Yellowcard is one of the better punk rock bands of our time.

In football (soccer), a player is issued a yellowcard when he commits his first penalty of the game. When he commits the second penalty of the game, he gets a redcard and is ejected from the game.
Ronaldo was issued a yellowcard, and he must now be careful so that he does not get a yellow card

A good band from J-town. Current albums are The Underdog EP, Ocean Avenue, Where we stand, and One for the kids. They aren't punk like some ignorant kids on here say, they are pop-punk. Ruined by preppy sluts who heard Ocean Avenue on the radio and call themselves punk.
*Prep hears Ocean Avenue on the radio*

Prep: LYK OMG I'M SO PUNK.

Me: Um no you are not. Where were you 10 years ago, when we were skating around listening to REAL PUNK ROCK.

A pop-punk, pop-rock band (also called Punk Revival by AOL music) with a violinist. Currently consists of Ryan Key (lead vocals,guitar), Sean Mackin (violin, vocals), Pete Mosley (vocals, guitar), Longeneiu W. Parsons III (a.k.a. LP)(drums), and the newest-- Ryan Mendez(guitar). Ryan Mendez filled in for the past guitarist, Ben Harper, a.k.a "Ben Jammin'" by fans. Not the Ben Harper some of you may know.

Formed in Jacksonville, FL. All the original members went to a performing arts high school, seen in the Beyond Ocean Avenue: Live At The Electic Factory concert DVD.

As a small majority of people know, Yellowcard has been around since 1997, and released their first CD, "Midget Tossing" which is now out of print. All their CDs have been on indie-labels until Ocean Avenue.
Midget Tossing- {label uknown by m}-1998
Where We Stand- {label unknown by me}-1999
Still Standing EP- {label unknown by me}- 2000
One For The Kids- Lobster Records-2001
The Underdog EP- Fueled By Ramen- 2002
Ocean Avenue- Capitol Records, EMI-2003
(re-release of Where We Stand in 2004)
Lights and Sounds- Capitol Records, EMI-2006

The band name was coined by the members having partys, and a foul in soccer is called a yellowcard, so they used yellowcard as a party foul, such as spilling a beer. Don;t listen to the hate-definitions. They're not definitions, just idiots spreading their opinion (which yes, they are 'entitled' to...). I'm here to give you the story.
Yellowcard is a rock band with a voilin from Florida.
