The All-American Rejects (formed 2001)
The All-American Rejects are an American rock band from Oklahoma. The lineup of the band consists of Tyson Ritter on vocals, bass and piano, Nick Wheeler on lead guitar, vocals and keyboard, Chris Gaylor on drums and Mike Kennerty on rhythm guitar and vocals.

The Early Years: Shortly after their formation, The All-American Rejects released their debut EP, 'Same Girl, New Songs'. To promote the record, they toured the Midwest of the USA, with Clayton Rhoades. Former members Jesse Tabish and Tim Campbell were both involved in the recording of the EP.

Towards the end of the tour, they signed a deal with Doghouse Records, making them label-mates with the likes of The Get Up Kids and River City High.

The All-American Rejects then entered the studio with the producer Tim O'Heir who had previously worked with Sebadoh and Juliana Hatfield. Their eponymous album was released in October 2001, preceded by the single 'Swing, Swing'.

The band's second album was released in September 2005. Entitled Move Along, the album featured the singles 'Dirty Little Secret' and 'Move Along'. It has been reported that the video to 'Move Along' is a tribute to their touring keyboardist, Timothy Jordan II, who had passed away. The video won the Best Group Video Award at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2006.

At the end of 2005, on New Year's Eve, The All-American Rejects played a cover of 'Good Times' by The Cars, with Fall Out Boy, on the MTV channel. The following New Year's Eve, they played a gig with several bands, including Ok! Go and Chicago. The All-American Rejects performed on VH1 Rock Honors in 2006, playing a cover of Def Leppard's 'Photograph'.

The All-American Rejects' third album was released in December 2008 and was entitled When The World Comes Down. The band first hinted that they would be recording the new material in February 2008, when they changed the front page of their website to read "Recording. No Bullshit. Go outside. Later." The band use their website to broadcast occasional videos of themselves in their studio.

In June 2008, The All-American Rejects announced that they would be touring with Simple Plan, in addition to the Vans Warped Tour that they had already announced.

In October 2008, The All-American Rejects were inducted into the Oklahoma Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, as 'Uprising Stars'.

Ritter Gives Up Search For Girlfriend


All American Rejects Tyson Ritter

THE All-American Rejects star Tyson Ritter has sworn off marriage until he hits his 30s - because he's fed up with women who want him to make a serious commitment.

The 25 year old broke up with his model girlfriend of six years, Kim Smith, earlier this year (09) and he admits he has been struggling to find a partner "with substance".

Now he's vowing not to settle down for a few more years - so he can enjoy the single life for as long as possible.

He tells Kerrang! magazine, "My advice is, 'Dudes, don't close up shop (marry) if you're still in your 20s.' You're a f**king idiot if you do and that's from the heart and my own experience...

Single Ritter Slams Stupid Girls


All American Rejects Tyson Ritter

All-American Rejects frontman Tyson Ritter is looking for love - but he's frustrated by the number of "brainless" girls he encounters.

The singer recently split from his long-term partner, model Kim Smith, and has been on the prowl for a new girlfriend.

But Ritter admits it's difficult for a rock star to meet nice, intelligent women - because he's always surrounded by groupies.

He tells Britain's Kerrang! magazine, "Searching for intelligence in a woman who would actually have you after a show is hard. You're not going to have much luck. It would be nice to find somebody who can say a sentence that doesn't have 'like' in it more than once. The women who stay after (the show) ends, well they're a certain demographic. None of them have brains. That's a problem. You get close to a girl and then you realise there's a peanut rattling around up there."

The rocker performed in a wheelchair, wearing a leg brace in Florida during the band's tour with Blink-182, but details of the injury remained a mystery.

Now he has revealed damaging his knee nearly had horrific consequences - he was just 12 hours from having his right leg amputated.

He tells Kerrang! magazine, "I got an infection from doing a knee-slide. One minute I'm fine, the next it's, 'Hey, f**k you. Love, your leg'. I played in West Palm in a leg brace but after that show, doctors wouldn't let me leave without going to hospital. They told me if I'd waited 12 hours, they'd have had to take off my leg!
