As I get acquainted with all things 97.5 NOW FM, I realized that one of my dreams as a teen has come true and it means the absolute world to me.

Recently I wrote an introductory "getting to know me" article and I mentioned how I was downright obsessed with All Time Low starting at 14 years old. Now that they have their new song "Monsters" featuring blackbear and Demi Lovato and my little former emo heart is absolutely bursting at the fact I get to say "All Time Low on 97.5 NOW FM", a station I absolutely jammed to in high school.

It got me thinking, though, a whole new generation is getting to know All Time Low and, at the risk of sounding like a "bitter Millennial" on TikTok, some people may not know the absolute HYPE that comes with that "*cough cough* I GOT YOUR PICTURE, I'm COMING WITH YOU..."

If you don't know what I am talking about, that's what I'm here for today! I'm taking you on a journey of my, personal, top-five All Time Low must-listens for any fan!

1. Poppin' Champagne

We'll start with the first song and video that really drew me in to them. It was weird, concerned my mother and, honestly, Alex, Jack, Rian and Zack are really hot. I call this *the awakening*.

2. Dear Maria, Count Me In

I don't make the rules but one I will never break is that you do not mess with the classics and that is exactly what this one is.

3: Coffee Shop Soundtrack

This one really shows off how their voices and overall sound has matured. From one of my favorite albums of theirs, "Put Up or Shut Up" this song is one that made me who I am as a person.

4. Weightless

It was a full-on event for me and my best friend when this album, "Nothing Personal" came out. Then we went to the show at The Fillmore in Detroit when All Time Low was in town as part of the Glamour Kills Tour and they performed this album. There are tons of incredible songs on this one like "Hello Brooklyn" and "Damned If I Do, Damned If I Don't" but the one that is most iconic, arguably, is "Weightless"!

5. Remembering Sunday

Now this one, while not one of their "bangers" is one that just gutted me emotionally. Looking back at when I would cry to this song, I'm not really sure if I had been through anything serious enough for that kind of reaction but this one just gets you down to your core. That's what was and is so great about a group like All Time Low, while they have albums absolutely packed with some absolute jams, they can slow it down and really get emotional. This album, "So Wrong, It's Right" is one of my favorites and this song, still, is truly essential to the ATL experience:

So there you have it, a beginner's guide to All Time Low. As I've grown up and grown into the person I am today because of these guys, it makes me so happy to see them have more and more mainstream success.

These guys inspired me to chase my dreams and it really makes me tear up being able to talk about them and their new music on the radio.

Now if you will excuse me, I'm going to go turn on All Time Low's entire discography, dance and try to find the paper I wrote about them in the ninth grade!

While we're feeling nostalgic, let's look back at some of our favorite retail chains growing up that are, sadly, no longer with us:
