[DECLINE AND FALL OUT BOY] If not quite pop-punk royalty, We the Kings at least earned invitations to court with their 2008 debut's breakout single, "Check Yes Juliet." The breezily infectious summer sing-along went platinum down under, soundtracked lesser CW soaps, and made its way to, er, Lego Rock Band. Upon the stalled momentum of a subsequent release along the same Blink 182 highway, however, the quartet rather decisively turned from the dimming alt-rock horizon toward more temperate climes. After the shimmering acoustic strums and lobotomized lyrics of third album Sunshine State of Mind, talk of Pete Wentz collaborations gave way to Radio Disney duets, but combos founded amid Florida middle schools could wish upon worse stars than the keys to the Magic Kingdom.
