The Get Up Kids didn't have to go far to choose from the list of this year's Undercover songs: The longtime Blur fans had already been playing a bit of that band's "Girls And Boys" during their sound checks. The cheeky track originally appeared on the excellent album Parklife in 1994, just before The Get Up Kids started playing music in Kansas City, Missouri. Although the band would become most associated with the second wave of emo, The Get Up Kids have always specialized in a kind of hooky power-pop that isn't as far removed from Blur as it may appear—and this year's There Are Rules finds the band expanding its sound.
