In 2001, Tyson Ritter was at a party and saw Nick Wheeler’s band playing. Tyson noticed there was no bass player in Nick’s band. Tyson told Nick he could play bass (which, he couldn’t) because he wanted to join the band. He quickly and hastily learned to play bass guitar. Soon thereafter, Ritter and Wheeler formed their own two-man band. Ritter and Wheeler were joined by Mike Kennerty, a guitarist, Chris Gaylor, a drummer and Nathan Brindley, a keyboardist.
Now that the band had been formed, the songwriting and performing could begin. With the help of producer Tim O’Heir, The All-American Rejects recorded their first album, the self-titled The All-American Rejects.
In 2005, the band released Move Along, their second album. Move Along featured “Dirty Little Secret”, “Top of the World”, and “Move Along”, all smash hit singles from the album. “Move Along” peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 six months after its release and was then nominated at the MTV Video Music Awards for Best Editing in a Video and Best Group Video. They won Best Group Video.
The All-American Rejects began recording their third album When the World Comes Down in the summer of 2007. Writing and recording this album took two years but came out with a bang with the smash hit single “Gives You Hell”, released in September of 2008.
