Music: Yellowcard
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:

  • Call Back: 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 Dual Suicide: "You and Me and One Spotlight" may be one of the most beautiful examples of this trope ever.
  • Early-Installment Weirdness: 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.
  • Fail O'Suckyname: Holly Wood? Really?
  • "Groundhog Day" Loop: The music video for "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 Run, Lola, Run.
  • Harsh Vocals: Most prominently in "Way Away".
  • Let's Duet: "How I Go".
  • Lyrical Dissonance: Often, particularly in "View From Heaven".
  • New Sound Album: "One for the Kids", their third album, completely changes their genre. "Lights and Sounds" is a milder example.
  • Pop Punk/Punk Rock
  • Refrain from Assuming: "One Year Six Months", "Martin Sheen or JFK", "Ocean Avenue", either of the Holly Wood songs... basically, a good idea with this band.
  • Revolving Door Band: 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.
  • Punk Opera: The album Lights and Sounds tells the story of a girl named Holly Wood and her experiences in Los Angeles.
  • Teenage Death Songs: "Two Weeks From Twenty", just barely fitting the trope.
