Soundtrack of Our Lives 

The past nine months have been good to Motion City Soundtrack. The Minneapolis power punks' second album, Commit This to Memory, became a buzzworthy hit that's kept them on the road since the disc's release last June. The quintet, which headlined both the Van's Warped Tour and MTV's Campus Invasion last year, is now swinging through the country again, playing bigger venues to accommodate the upsurge in popularity. The larger stages are likely to complement the band's massive guitar riffs. Like pals Blink-182 and Fall Out Boy, Motion City Soundtrack embraces the "pop" in pop-punk. Its choruses were made for audience sing-alongs, which should carry the band through the summer music-festival season.
