The Get Up Kids are a Kansas City-based American emo pop band. Formed in 1995, the band was a major player in the mid-90’s emo scene, otherwise known as the “second wave” of emo music. As they gained prominence, they began touring with bands such as Green Day and Weezer before becoming headliners themselves, eventually embarking on international tours of Japan and Europe.
