American Football’s debut album is, in many circles, the holy grail of emo. It wasn’t very successful at all when it was released, and the band broke up shortly afterwards. But it went on to inspire hundreds of copycat bands to put their guitars in weird tunings and sing slightly out of key about their feelings over a melodic math rock backdrop, birthing an entire subgenre in the process. Its status as a cult classic only grew over time, until the love for it became so widespread that American Football finally reunited. Without the ’99 debut, there would be no second (2016) or third (2019) album for us to even debate about. It’s one of the most important, influential emo albums of all time.
