Motion City Soundtrack is a Minneapolis-based pop-punk band, founded in 1997. The band is comprised of founding members Justin Pierre (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Joshua Cain (lead guitar, backing vocals), as well as Matthew Taylor (bass guitar, backing vocals), Jesse Johnson (synthesizer, keyboard, headbanging), and Tony Thaxton (drums, backing vocals). They have so far released five albums: I Am the Movie (2002), Commit This to Memory (2005), Even if It Kills Me (2007), and My Dinosaur Life (2010); their fifth album, Go, was released in June 2012. MCS combines rock music and Moog synthesizers, making for a unique sound. Their songs are also notable for their quirky (and sometimes pottymouthed) lyrics. Word Of God says that the band can be categorized as Scrabble-rock, because of Pierre's love for big words.
