All American Rejects Don’t Care

When the All-American Rejects returned in March with Kids in the Street, expectations were high. After all, it was the follow-up to 2008’s When the World Comes Down — an album that continued their string of crossover successes thanks to the hit “Gives You Hell” — and powered by slick first single “Beekeeper’s Daughter,” Kids looked certain to continue that trend.

But alas, sales have been slow. Kids in the Street debuted on Billboard’s top album chart at #18, and has since fallen off the Top 200.

The Rejects aren’t worried by that slow start. In fact, to hear them tell it, everything’s going according to plan.

“This is the record where we’re trying to prove ourselves as an ‘album band.’ We’ve done fine with singles,” AAR frontman Tyson Ritter told MTV News backstage at the Bamboozle festival. “Our last record, we were so proud of, but ‘Gives You Hell,’ sort of just steam-rolled the way and let nothing else surface. Honestly, man, we’re a whatever-the-hell-anybody-takes-from-us band. Singles, records, buy it, steal it — just feel it. I don’t care. Just come to a show.”
