Yellowcard is breath of unique air which is not geared tward a TRL screaming teen. However if you’re still interested in punk, pop punk, melodic music with guitars, or anything within close to that genre it would behoove you to go out and get acquainted with a wonderful band called Yellowcard. The five guy unit from Florida consists of two guitars, a bass, drums, and a violin. They have a wonderful live sound which includes harmonies and you may find yourself singing along, even if you don’t know the words, just because of their show is incredibly energetic and audience focused.

For a few years now Yellowcard has worked hard to gain a loving fan base that is strong. They tour the clubs of America at night and the high schools by afternoon, often playing two shows a day. On top of this they released an album in 2001 (One for the kids), the “Underdog EP” in 2002, and have finished recording “Ocean Avenue” their second “big” album which is due out sometime soon. This could be a problem seeing as I am nowhere near tired of the last two albums.

Some of my favorite Yellowcard songs are Rough Draft, Big Apple Heart Break, Drifting and Powder. Of course I suggest that if you have a friend, child, invisible dog that’s into this sort of music that you purchase “one for the kids” for them and look for Yellowcard to continue making great music to enjoy in years to come.

    About five years ago, a friend from Florida sent me ten copies of his friends’ band cds.

    Somewhere in my closet are ten copies of the Yellowcard demo.

    Well Michele, that may be before they retooled. Around 2000 they had a few band members switch out because they didnt want to commit to the band. Afterwards their sound changed a bunch.

  • Jenny

    Yellowcard just came out with a new C.D. call “Ocean Avenue” which i truly believe is their best work yet. They have such a unique sound that there is no way to pigeonhole them. They are their own band. The melodys and the way the violin is incorporated into the songs in awesome. The lyrics have really matured and every song sounds different making it hard for you to get tired of the album.

  • Megan

    who is the picture of on the new Yellowcard cover (Ocean Avenue)?

  • http://orsoithought.blogspot.com Bat Boy

    Megan, the girls name is Brittany Nash.

    I agree with Jenny too, Ocean Avenue is a wonderful album. I listen to it every day. I especial enjoy the title song.

  • Paige

    Hi, my name is Paige. I live in Jacksonville, Florida, and i am a sophomore at the highschool in which Yellowcard graduated from. Im proud to be able to say i go to their highschool.
    I was just wondering if they remember us, and if they would ever mention us in their “thankyou’s”.

  • http://www.mp3.com/juniper damon

    if brittany nash is out there, can she please get in touch with me- i think i want to marry her- even though the picture is alittle vague- the beauty just comes right through- so Britany- if you get this, I like like long walks on the beach and romance novels and cuddling

  • Courtney

    yEllowCard has to be one of THE best bands ive heard in a while..! They’re sound is very unique..and just about anybody can relate to their songs.Yellowcard is def. going places..

  • http://orsoithought.blogspot.com Bat Boy

    Its unfair to even insinuate that this band has not “gone places” already. Their journey to the point they are now was long and hard, you should congratulate them on being one of the incredibly few who hear their songs on the radio.

  • Matt

    Yellowcard is an awesome band. I just purchased their CD, it is one of the best I’ve heard in a while. I can actually say that I liked every song on the disk. I think that Yellowcard can be classified – I would put them into the “real music category”. The music is put together and mixed very well, and I believe that the words to these songs actually happened to them, unlike some of the bands out there that just write songs whenever they need to be written. Good songwriters write whenever they feel inspiration, not when they need a new tune.

    Hey Ya’ll! So You like Brittany Nash huh? We’re close friends of hers, we came on here to see how funny it was that she was on the internet and find it hillarious that she has an actual fan basis! If you guys want to check her out she was also a model for gap and was in an issue of ‘seventeen.’ If you are the guy who wants to marry her maybe we can get some real photos of her for you. lol

  • http://lpiluv!! nobody important

    I’m back, i am looking at my new ocean avenue cd and you can hardly see her face and of what i can see is just boobs thats the only reason you think shes pretty isnt it? just because she has big boobs. and if she gets any more famous and we see her on tv one day and she has a huge planet earth size mole on her face or something like that i’m coming back on this website and i will make fun of all you people for the rest of your lives. saying i told you so but you all are too stubborn to listen to me. so before you start up again remember what i said here today. that a woman isnt pretty just because she has big boobs.

  • http://lpiluv!! nobody important

  • http://toofast4love Tyson

    Yellowcard DEFINATELY fucking rock, Brittany Nash is cute and all but like other people have noted models are SUPPOSED to look good. Ready to get the new album after hearing Ocean Avenue…anybody know if they are touring now or anytime soon in the Los Angeles area??

    Yellowcard ROCKS!!!!

  • Morgan

    hey, wow its 2006 now, with 7 YC albums out (but aren’t 2 out of print?). I thought it was fun reading this and all the comments from 3 years ago and stuff, and seeing how much Yellowcard has porgressed. Everyone was saying how they thought Ocean Avenue was the best so far, but wow, Lights and Sounds! i still absolutely looovveee listening to Ocean Avenue, The Underdog EP, and One For The Kids (which im listening to right now, Rock Star Land is playing), and you can truly see how muched they’ve progressed since OFTK. I wish i could at least hear song samples from Midget Tossing, Where We Stand, and the Still Standing EP. (i saw the re-release of Where We Stand or somthing quite recently, but didn’t get it…)

  • Sirspike

    Does brittany nash have like a website or summat anyone?

  • Mikeyboi

    Hi everyone anyone have pics of brittany nash?? shes HOT!

  • Anon

    Well sorry to say something else about Brittany N, (I do love yellowcard, trust me) but I was wondering, if she’s on Gap/JC Pennys or in an issue of Seventeen, which issue, and is anyone devoted enough to look for her? I’d love to see some more pictures but not enough to go searching frantically for them.

    In otherwords, I bought the Yellowcard cd when it came out. I was surprised, because the vendor said she got a bunch of them in, but I seemed like the first person to be picking them up.

    I guess no one’s really rushing in to get them, which is probably good; us loyal fans (I’ll admit, I haven’t listened to them for long, but as soon as I heard “Way Away” I was hooked for life) are able to pick them up easily, and laugh at everyone for missing out on a truly amazing CD.

  • Ella

    i grew up practically with brittany cause i was really good friends with her lil sis zoe. She’s a really awesome down to earth girl and antone would be lucky to get to know her.
