A surprisingly iPod-worthy mainstream rock/punk/pop band with some nice beats. Their first hit, "The Middle", never gets old.
Regis Philbin made fun of Jimmy Eat World, and said they sucked, but who cares? He's REGIS!

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.

An absolutely amazing band from Mesa, Arizona who broke into the mainstream scene of music in 2001 by releasing their album "Bleed American", which is probably the best, as well as the first true blend of Pop Punk and Emo, with some elements of Power Pop as well. "Bleed American" was followed by "Futures" in 2004 which was darker and almost better than it's predecessor. Before all of that they released "Clarity" in 1999 which was at first a commercial failure, but, has since gained cult status and is credited as a major influence on the Emo subgenre of music, being considered as the best Emo album ever by some critics. So basically, they're incredible.
Stop reading and go listen to Jimmy Eat World
