The album was certified platinum by the RIAA and spawned the single "Swing, Swing".
The band's second studio album Move Along brought the group further mainstream success in 2005, producing the hit singles, "Dirty Little Secret", "Move Along" and "It Ends Tonight", all of which charted in the top fifteen on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Kids in the Street, the band's fourth studio album, was released March 26, 2012 and debuted at number 18 on the US Billboard 200 chart.
Edmond, Oklahoma resident Mike Kennerty joined on as rhythm guitarist soon before the album was released. Early in 2003, the band went on tour as an opening act for CKY.
Soon after, the band was having problems with drummer Tim Campbell. The single "Swing, Swing" was also re-issued, which peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 at No. While several differing stories have occurred concerning the tour, they were kicked off the tour shortly after it began.
The band formed in Stillwater, Oklahoma in 1999 while members Nick Wheeler and Tyson Ritter were still in high school.
It was here that Ritter offered himself for bass duties.
Campbell was later replaced by drummer Chris Gaylor, who knew and played in another band with Kennerty. The band hit the road for eight shows in January, and Dream Works issued a broader-scale distribution of the debut LP. In Spring 2003, the All-American Rejects set out on their first headlining tour, called the Too Bad For Hell Tour.
In later 2003, the All-American Rejects released, Live from Oklahoma... , their first live DVD – which was later certified Gold by the RIAA.
In November, the All-American Rejects joined the bands Motion City Soundtrack and Limbeck for six shows in the United Kingdom, the first date on the 16th, and the last on the 22nd.
In July 2005, the All-American Rejects released their second studio album, Move Along, produced by Howard Benson.
The album's first single, "Dirty Little Secret", was released that summer to radio stations.
Then, on December 13, The Bite Back EP was released on the i Tunes Music Store, and on New Year's Eve 2005, the band performed The Cars' "Good Times Roll" with Fall Out Boy on MTV.
The demo is now commonly referred to as The Blue Disc or The Blue Album.
