‘The Middle’, 2002

Where many bands imploded, or just did not have the legs for it, Jimmy Eat World survived the mid-1990s grunge scene. ‘The Middle’ was the second single from their 2001 Bleed American album, and it proved to be a worldwide smash, and their biggest single to date. Once linked with grunge, now linked – in the media at least – to emo, Jimmy Eat World still continue to ply their trade.
