An awesome band that combines pop-culture from the 70s & 80's, and punk/alternative music. They hail from Arizona and are comprised of 2 guy; Nate and Sam.
I saw The Format perform with Something Corporate, RX Bandits, and Days Away in San Diego in December.

Both the literal and metaphorical, formation is the rallying call to both Beyonce fans and Beyonce haters.

For the fans its a call to stand up and fight for what is just, what you believe in, for cultural diversity and for equality among colors, sexes, orientations, wealth classes and any oppressed demographic.

For the haters, get "in formation" is more of a metaphorical meaning. Inform yourself! Just because you don't quit get it or understand it, doesn't mean it's against you and you should hate it.
(Employers found to be paying women less at your job?)
"Ok ladies, now let's get in formation!"

"These mother f*ckers better get in formation!"
(Michigan bans sodomy)
"Girl Congress has lost their mind! They better get in formation!"

A pop/indie/rock band; the greatest band that has ever existed, and ever will exist. They are worshiped as gods by millions of people.
I love the Format; they're even better than the Beatles.

From the H formation, the two guys give a hefty high five, which forms the letter "A".
Fabian and Fabio pulled off the A formation right after the H Formation. It was all good in nature.
