Motion City Soundtrack
, grouped in with Panic(!) At The Disco
and the like, never really fit the mold and have done their best to grow past their black-hoodie-Hot-Topic phase and My Dinosaur Life

but with the help of Blink-182's Mark Hoppus
as producer they're closest to their A-game they've been in a while.
