No one can argue that The Get Up Kids are one of the single most impactful groups to ever hit the Indie/Emo scene. What is debatable is whether their influence extended beyond their style and affected the up-and-coming generations of artists in the same way that they affected the musicians in their own genre. Did their passion emotionally reach the singer songwriters of the world, did they intensely move the dive bar performing Punk acts or sway the Chicago Pop Punk scene? Well, if this wildly diverse album is any indication of their wide ranging impact, then the answer is undoubtedly yes. This album, and the variety of highly talented artists that signed on board to pay homage to one of the most well-respected acts to grace the musical stage, is clear proof that The Get Up Kids meant more to music than their Indie Rock styling's would suggest. If you want more evidence just take Everyone Dies in Utah's Post-Hardcore rendition of "Close To Home," or The Material's female fronted Rock version of "Red Letter Day." I challenge you to find two cover songs that have that much range yet still appear on the very same original album (Something To Write Home About). Even more astonishing is that those two disparate tracks are just the tip of the musically oriented iceberg. If you're a fan of Pop Punk, Ska, Alternative, Indie or Acoustic, it all makes an appearance. And again, it's this kind of variety that undoubtedly proves the stunning poignancy of The Get Up Kids' career and the unbelievable extent of the impression they made on us all.
