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:
* AtrociousAlias: [[IncrediblyLamePun Holly Wood]]? Really?
* 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.
** To be fair, very few of the original members remained once they broke in to the mainstream so they literally ''were'' a different band.
* 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".
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Typically between 2 ("One Year, Six Months", "Ten") and 6 ("Way Away", "Breathing").
* NewSoundAlbum: ''One for the Kids'', their third album, completely changes their genre. "Lights and Sounds" is a milder example.
* PopPunk[=/=]PunkRock
* [[RockOpera Punk Opera]]: The album ''Lights and Sounds'' tells the story of a girl named Holly Wood and her [[RealLifeWritesThePlot experiences in Los Angeles]].
* 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.
* StudioChatter: At the beginning of "Rough Draft", Ryan can be heard faintly saying, "One, two, three, four..."
* TakeThat: During their tour to promote ''Ocean Avenue'', Ryan would boast a baseball hat which read "[[GeorgeWBush Not My President]]" before the band played "Believe," their [[TheWarOnTerror tribute to the victims of 9/11]].
* TeenageDeathSongs: "Two Weeks From Twenty", just barely fitting the trope.
