Remember when whiny frontmen were all the rage? Yes, you do, somewhere back in the cobwebby corners of your memory, between your checkered Vans and emo hair. (Or maybe that's just my memory.) Something Corporate songwriter and singer Andrew McMahon is the crown prince of plaintive pop-punk. He and the rest of the band broke out with 2001's Ready ... Break, released a couple of albums, then went on hiatus in 2005. Since then, McMahon has been riding his less angst-ridden project, Jack's Mannequin, across the country to greater success (and through Kansas City quite frequently). Following the release of Something Corporate's greatest-hits album, the underrated balladeers announced a proper reunion in 2009. Expect Andrew McMahon to jump on his piano, wail and sing about butterflies. Dewy-eyed nostalgia is sure to ensue.
