A Chicago pop-punk band that long seemed primed for bigger things, the Plain White T’s finally got their big break two years ago when their sensitive acoustic ballad “Hey There Delilah” became an inescapable hit, winning them a Top 40 audience of swooning young girls. Unlike many of their fellow Warped Tour alums, the White T’s make no pretenses about being angst-ridden. Their subsequent records have been even catchier and more polished than their breakthrough record, all tight grooves, concise guitar hooks and general good times—and, unsurprisingly, they feature more would-be heartbreakers in the spirit of their lone mega-hit.
