Something Corporate

During Something Corporate's original time as a band—roughly the years between 1998 and 2004—they never received their proper due.

The piano-driven group didn't quite fit in with prevailing trends (although they were on then-pop-punk mecca Drive-Thru Records and toured with bands in the genre) and vocalist/ivory-tickler Andrew McMahon's lyrics were wise beyond his years. "I Woke Up in a Car" distilled road-borne homesickness, and the sugary pogo "Punk Rock Princess" should have been a soundtrack staple of every teen movie released a decade ago.

But in the time since SoCo took a break, McMahon found greater fame with Jack's Mannequin—and anticipation for a reunion continued to grow. Happily, late last year, the band reunited; this tour and a greatest-hits collection, which features fan favorites and a few new mixes beside better-known cuts, followed.
