Were you sick of hearing "Gives You Hell" by All-American Rejects on the radio this year? It could be because the song was the most played track on radio in 2009 according to Billboard. The Rejects edged out Lady Gaga, The Black Eyed Peas, Flo Rida and Taylor Swift for the most played award.
"We are thrilled that we have been played relentlessly over the past year, hopefully people aren’t too sick of us by now," said Rejects front man Tyson Ritter. "But truly, we have the best fans in the world. It’s because of them that this band is where we are. They are the ones who kept our song on the charts and on the radio for so long and we thank them."
"Gives You Hell" spent four weeks at #1 on the Top 40 charts making it the group’s first #1 song on Mainstream Top 40 and Adult Top 40 Tracks charts. The song was also their first to break into the top five on Billboard’s Hot 100 and stayed in the Billboard top 10 for over 13 weeks. With over 3.3 million copies in digital sales alone, these stats make “Gives You Hell” the band’s most successful single to date.
The All-American Rejects are currently out on tour in support of their latest release When The World Comes Down, which features the aforementioned track. For tour dates visit the band's website at www.allamericanrejects.com.
