Every single one of us has a favorite Jimmy Eat World song. Yes, even you. Whether you come from the early Clarity days or were somehow living under a rock and didn’t come on board until more recently, the Jimmy Eat World dudes have written the songs that defined your youth and coming into young adulthood. And really, whether you’re in the former group or the latter for when you discovered that the band had torn pages from your own diary for their lyrics, “Sweetness” is still your jam. And if it’s not … well, you better learn to love it, since this is their Bleed American throwback tour. Not that you should need any convincing to love that album anyway, though. - Brien Overly
