Plain White T's started as a pop-punk band with mostly uptempo rock songs, but after their ballad "Hey There Delilah
" took off in 2007, they were more likely to produce songs in that vein, like "1, 2, 3, 4." Fans loved it - the song sold 2 million digital copies and garnered 10s of millions of streams, giving them a solid hit in addition to "Delilah."
"For a good five years it was amazing," Tom Higgenson told Songfacts
. "We were working our asses off but seeing the rewards for it."
