All-American Rejects: S/T 12"

Doghouse Records


Co-founders Tyson Ritter (vocals/bass) and Nick Wheeler (guitar/programming) hail from Stillwater, OK, where the pair first embraced music as an appealing diversion from the ho-hum life of small-town America. Citing such influences as AC/DC, Def Leppard and Bon Jovi, they formed The All-American Rejects in 2000, while both members were still in high school. Originally released on Doghouse Records in 2002 and later reissued by DreamWorks, their platinum certified self-titled debut scored hits with the effervescent singles "Swing, Swing," "The Last Song" and "Time Stands Still," which attracted attention from Interscope Records and ultimately landed the All-American Rejects on the label's roster.
