Welcome to the Jimmy Eat World
fan group at Deviant Art!
For those of you who don't know or just happened to stumble upon this page, Jimmy Eat World are a band comprising of four talented guys- Jim Adkins, Rick Burch, Zach Lind and Tom Linton (and previously, Mitch Porter). They formed in 1994 in Arizona, and when they began their indie sound was largely fast, raw, and rather punk-oriented.
As time went by their sound evolved- their underground indie following even stuck with them when they transferred to a big name label. Their sound began to be largely described as 'emo', even though their tight musicianship, thought-provoking lyrics, striking songwriting and gorgeous vocal harmonic abilities clearly set them apart from other big label emo bands.
They've been described as modern, melodic, contemplative, mellow, racy, energetic, melancholy and inspirational, among many, many other things- but fans worldwide agree their music stands out above the pack. Jimmy Eat World write their music and lyrics in such a way that each song brings forth a meaning inherent to each individual listener.

*~*~*Meet a part of me that feels like every other day
It has been seen in pictures and in alleyways
Can see it through your walls
Can see it through your fall
Can see it on your floor, wrong way
Lift your head up, Wednesday.
--'Wednesday' from the self-titled album Jimmy Eat World (1994).
