My first clue that something fishy was happening was the three singles were at the front ... read more
The critics were harsh as shit, jeez.

Fun. remains one of the most infamous bands to grace the levels of the mainstream radio. In 2012, they had three smash hits, 6 Grammy nominations (they won 2), and owned the world. Three years later after little activity, they had taken an indefinite break, and still remain apart to this day. This band took the world by storm with Some Nights, and deservedly so.
