* ICantBelieveAGuyLikeYouWouldNoticeMe: "Shut Up and Dance" is a rather heartwarming song about a guy who meets the girl of his dreams in a dance club when ''she'' approaches ''him'' and asks him to dance. She's out of his league. He '''''knows''''' she's out of his league, and he is absolutely confused as to why someone as wonderful as she would even look at a scrub like him. When he asks, she's irritated at the question, responding, "Shut up and dance with me." The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JCLY0Rlx6Q video]] makes this even more obvious than the lyrics do.


Their current lineup is Nicholas Petricca (lead vocals and keyboard), Kevin Ray (bass), Sean Waugaman (drums), and Eli Maiman (guitar). Their third album, ''What If Nothing'', was released on November 10, 2017, after a year-long hiatus from touring. Their most recent song, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3BCMPZjTFQ Timebomb]], was released on Youtube on January 10, 2019.

Added DiffLines:

** "Timebomb" is about someone who is afraid of getting hurt again, but can't help falling in love.


* TheOtherDarrin: Downplayed. Aside from Petricca, every position has changed members at least once prior to any studio album being released. In a more straight sense, Adam Reifsnyder played bass on ''I want! I want!'' before Kevin Ray took over from their self-titled album.

Added DiffLines:

* PercussiveMaintenance: In the video for "Shut Up and Dance", the music comes to a halt right before the final chorus. It starts up again and continues as normal once the female lead comes in and hits Nick's shirt a few times and it goes static like trying to fix a broken TV.


* WeUsedToBeFriends: "Iscariot", [[TheBible appropriately enough.]] The lyrics are ambiguous enough that the song could indeed be referring to ''the'' Iscariot who betrayed Jesus to his death, or could be about someone comparing their betrayal to his.

Added DiffLines:

** The band's costumes and performance area for the "Work This Body" video are an homage to Eighties kids' cartoons and graphic design.
** Much of the band's general sound and aesthetic (especially from the ''Talking Is Hard'' album) have a very Eighties throwback vibe in general.


* AndTheFandomRejoiced: Longtime live-only favorite "Tiger Teeth" finally got a studio version on ''What If Nothing,'' much to the delight of their fans.
