We the Kings' self‑titled sure to be a hit among all the pop‑punk lovers out there. The whole album is an anthem to anyone who has ever feel repressed by parents/guardians (and really, what teenager hasn't?). Their songs are full of teenage angst captured in fun catchy music.
The lyrics of their hit single "Check Yes Juliet" describe a present day Romeo and Juliet problem. The song include verses like "Run baby, run. Don't ever look back. They'll tear us apart if you give them the chance." and "Just sneak out and don't tell a soul goodbye." In another single "Skyway Avenue" the song is about leaving a boring town and starting something new.
These reckless lyrics and the problems that the group sing about obviously stems from the long friendship they have had. The bands is actually named after their middle school, Martha B. King Middle school. They have also been known as "Broken Image" and "De Soto" but We the Kings stuck though to their new found stardom. The artists' song "This is our town" has been featured on popular teen dramas like "The OC" and "One Tree Hill"
