fun. Review: We are Young (feat. Janelle Monáe)

Awesome song by a band that is very hard working and talented. A kind of a shin-esque vibe and it makes me a wee bit sad I did not do a review of them last year when given the opportunity!

fun! – We Are Young (feat. Janelle Monáe)

Fun. (often stylized as fun.) is an American indie pop band based in New York City, New York that was formed by Nate Ruess, formerly of The Format. After the 2008 breakup of The Format, Ruess then formed Fun with Andrew Dost of Anathallo and Jack Antonoff of Steel Train. Fun has released two albums, their debut Aim and Ignite in 2009 and their latest Some Nights in February, 2012.

The band is best known for their hit single “We Are Young” featuring Janelle Monáe, which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and Digital Songs charts. The song marks the first time in over a decade a multi-member rock band made a Billboard debut with the #1 spot in the Hot 100 since Nickelback’s “How You Remind Me” in December 2001[citation needed], as well as becoming the first rock/alternative song to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart since Coldplay’sViva La Vida” in 2008.
