Michael Elins Jimmy Eat World iscelebrating the 10th anniversary of their album, Futures.
Back in 2004, when Jimmy Eat World released its fifth album, Futures, singer/guitarist Jim Adkins sang in the title track that he hoped "for better in November" and that listeners would "believe your voice can mean something."
It was around this time President George W. Bush was up for re-election against Senator John Kerry. The song wasn't released as a single until the following year (Adkins says he's fine with the label's decision to release "Pain" as the lead single), and Bush took his seat again in the White House.
Despite any political swaying "Futures" could have made 10 years ago, Adkins insists that, despite the album name, he tries to live in the moment -- an attitude that has seen him through more than 20 years of playing with the band.More »
