The Get Up Kids are considered forefathers of the emo genre. An American rock band from Lawrence formed in 1995, they have been widely credited as being an influence, both with contemporaries like Saves The Day and later bands like Fall Out Boy, Taking Back Sunday, and The Wonder Years. As they gained prominence, they began touring with bands such as Green Day and Weezer before becoming headliners themselves, eventually embarking on international tours of Japan and Europe.
