Pop-punk band All-American Rejects dropped by AOL Music's Los Angeles studio recently, to perform a selection of songs from their latest album 'Kids in the Street.' Following the band's typically energetic performance, we talked with singer/bassist Tyson Ritter and lead guitarist Nick Wheeler about their writing process, their early years in the Oklahoma punk scene, the women that drove them to write songs like their new single 'Beekeeper's Daughter,' and the reason they'll never put out a dance-pop record.
"We started writing songs on little adventures across the United States for our second record, 'Move Along.' It was sort of an accident, because we lived in this Utopian retirement community in Florida. We decided to run as far as we could get from Los Angeles and New York, so we found this little sleepy town in north Florida, and it was just too perfect." -- Singer Tyson Ritter
