The Get Up Kids


In the same flavor as later emo bands like The Promise Ring and Braid, The Get Up Kids dish out emo that's unique to the late 90's era of the style. The group hit the scene in 1996 from Kansas City and released a couple EPs before signing with Doghouse Records. In 1997 the group released its first full-length album Four Minute Mile, which was very well received. The group released Something To Write Home About in 1999 with great success and has recently toured with major acts Weezer and Green Day, although they continue to remain in the independent status.
