Yellowcard is an L.A.-based Punk Pop band, best known for the fact that their band contains a professional violinist.

!!This band contains examples of:

* CallBack: Possibly in "Life of Leaving Home" to ''Lights and Sounds''.
-->"Every song was a snapshot of my life"
** Also, "With You Around" to "Only One"
-->"Do you remember when I said you were my only one?"
* {{Driven to|Suicide}} [[TakingYouWithMe Dual]] [[DrivenToSuicide Suicide]]: "You and Me and One Spotlight" may be one of the most beautiful examples of this trope ever.
* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Their first two albums were hardcore, rather than punk-pop, and they sound ''very'' different from everything else they've done. Most of their current fans don't consider the albums to be made by the same band.
* FailOSuckyname: [[IncrediblyLamePun Holly Wood]]? Really?
* GroundhogDayLoop: The music video for "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9fLbfzCqWw Ocean Avenue]]" finds the lead singer having to suffer some terrible fates, each one forcing him to repeat the same day, until he gets it right, in a similar reference to the German film ''Film/RunLolaRun''.
* HarshVocals: Most prominently in "Way Away".
* LetsDuet: "How I Go".
* LyricalDissonance: Often, particularly in "View From Heaven".
* NewSoundAlbum: "One for the Kids", their third album, completely changes their genre. "Lights and Sounds" is a milder example.
* PopPunk[=/=]PunkRock
* RefrainFromAssuming: "One Year Six Months", "Martin Sheen or JFK", "Ocean Avenue", either of the Holly Wood songs... basically, a good idea with this band.
* RevolvingDoorBand: In particular, they have a lot of trouble holding onto bassists. Their first two albums, released in 1997 and 1999, are the only albums to feature their original lineup; since then, ''Lights and Sounds'' (2006) and ''Paper Walls'' (2007) are the only other albums to feature all the same band members twice in a row.
* [[RockOpera Punk Opera]]: The album ''Lights and Sounds'' tells the story of a girl named Holly Wood and her [[RealLifeWritesThePlot experiences in Los Angeles]].
* TeenageDeathSongs: "Two Weeks From Twenty", just barely fitting the trope.
