Rock Kills Kid

Based around the songwriting talents of Jeff Tucker, the California-based alternative rock outfit Rock Kills Kid initially came together in the last part of the '90s. Having recently graduated from high school, Tucker was directionless and socially withdrawn when he finally worked up the nerve to hook up with some local punk bands and begin writing songs. Together with two of his bandmates, drummer Chris Poulson and bassist Kirk Huffman, Tucker formed Rock Kills Kid and recorded a demo that led to the guys inking a deal with Fearless Records in 2000. Their eponymous EP appeared in early 2001 to decent response, but Rock Kills Kid never really toured behind it.

Tucker soon found himself with no money and living as a squatter in the Los Angeles recording studio. Over the next few years, he constantly wrote -- barely leaving his illegal quarters -- and by the end of 2003, Tucker had amassed close to 150 songs. Meanwhile, Rock Kills Kid was still alive in name, but with an unstable roster, far from actually being a band. Undeterred, Tucker eventually recruited bassist Shawn Dailey, keyboardist Reed Calhoun, drummer Ian Hendrickson, and guitarist Sean Stopnik to once again complete the group. After the band signed to Reprise during the recording process, the emotionally tense Are You Nervous? arrived in May 2006. Produced by Mark Trombino (blink-182, Jimmy Eat World), their full-length debut was a post-punk-inspired effort that Tucker used to deal with his years of self-imposed isolation. March was spent on the road with the Electric Six and Nightmare of You; various tour dates followed the record's release as well. ~ Corey Apar, Rovi

THEY BROKE UP!? T_T

You know, it's a shame that Rock Kills Kid isn't getting back together. Are You Nervous is amazing. But at least they released a gem like that. So I should be happy for that at least.
Ive heard both versions and spoon isnt as good. I hold respect for them as the creator.
Nope. Just nope, sorry.
love this version
luminescent_ e m a c i a t i o n
Agree @ "Bryan"

I actually prefer RKK's version to Spoon's original. :)

-Arvis
I love their remix of spoons "I turn my camera on" its fantastic
MEH.
steve20828
meh.
sound2525
M.E.H.
Are You Nervous still rocks for me :D
two bad they only have two cd's out an Ep and Are you nervous? both really good
Never heard of them but this song is good! Hope they can make some more music
thompson.jac o b . l o u i s

This band rocks! Catchy sound, quite nice.
seems like an awesome band i got hooked from I Need You

the similar artists are all some of my favorites
This sound hooked me within the first 30 seconds of hearing them. I need more.
This might be derivative but you have to respect the fact that the guy has written 150 songs. I mean life has shat all over this guy, give him a break. Also I want to see their new album.
IM Paralyzed ,, I had somebody else write this for me.

Tucker sounds a little like Morrisey
Their sound is far more approachable than Radiohead's and Tucker's song writing is reminiscent of Ray Davies...bot h positive attributes!
Piece reminds me a bit of Glass Vegas, a bit of House of Love. Hope to hear more from them.
luminescent_ e m a c i a t i o n
Definitely one of the best new bands of the last 5 years.

<3
Don't Wanna Stay quickly became a favorite for me. Too bad I was so far behind in listening to these guys...
katzmyth
SUCKS!!!!
I agree w/dpowen. This is lightweight, boring, and derivative.
Glad Tucker got through all that to pull this off--another album please.
i like 'em. i think if a world of clones and sound a likes, their sound has a discinct resonance. sounds like tucker paid his dues. i wish him luck.
it's not bad. certainly reminds me more of the killers than radiohead
luminescent_ e m a c i a t i o n
Rock Kills Kid is a far better band than Radiohead. They can actually write SONGS.

I had no idea Mark Trombino produced "Are You Nervous?" I'm starting to think that everything he touches turns to gold.

-Arvis
You've got to be kidding. Thom Yorke? Blasphemy! And get this off my Radiohead station. They sound like a crappy New Wave knockoff.
chrismotta
The song hideaway is fantastic, i'm down with their sound. reminds of me of hot fuss, the stills, very clean, smooth indie
I thought this was Radiohead before I checked the station!
Anybody else think the lead singer sounds like Thom Yorke? I thought it was a side project for a sec there.
Very suede-like, and that's not a bad thing.
This rock killed ME

This is pretty good bland, forgettable, mediocre music.
Jeff Tucker rocks and I hope to hear more of their music as the band 'evolves'. Sometimes out of aversion comes the passion.... seems to be the case here.... Can someone sign this band, please?!!
Really pretty music. It's so damned pretty, that all I can really say. That's really the only way you can describe their sound, and I bet they suck live, just like Rouge Wave. But that's okay, as long as their albums are pretty sounding.
I really dig the "Hideaway" track; also, "Are You Nervous". Thanks to Pandora's shuffle.
