Borne on the FM Waves of the Heart

  • Lyrics
  • The Florida-based Against Me! can be considered a Punk band, but like The Cars, The Police and Green Day, they write intelligent, melodic songs that cross over to a broad audience. When we interviewed lead singer Tom Gabel in 2010, he explained: "I wrote the song shortly after meeting my wife, I wrote it for her. I was really not into the idea of falling in love, I fought it real hard. The song is about that moment that I just kind of surrendered to it, surrendered to her. Uh, vomit right?"
  • Tegan Quinn, who performs with her twin sister Sara in the duo Tegan and Sara, duets with Gabel on this song. Tom told us, "Tegan is rad; her and her sister deserve all the success in the world. Super talented. I also think that the two of them combined, her and Sara, have enough energy to power the lights on the Vegas strip."
