They got their name from a phrase they used in high school. Whenever somebody did something
stupid at a party, such as spill a beer on the carpet, they enforced soccer rules and gave them
a 'yellow card' for committing a 'party foul'.

Um. Definitely. Absolutely. You can get a lot out of the record but, um, I don't know if you get the full experience but you definitely get a new perspective. It's kinda hard for me to give you that perspective, but you'd have to ask a fan. [Laughs]
We wouldn't be where we are at now if it wasn't for file sharing. That is how kids found out about us. It's hard to have a negative view on it, obviously.
It was used as like a party thing. When we were at a party and someone spilled thier drink, we just said that they got a yellowcard. It basically was just thought of 5 days before one of our shows. (on naming the band)
Ben Fold's Five. They're from the states, a really, really big influence. There's a drummer, a piano player and then a bass player. It's just amazing music, it's great.
Good. It's really cool, because they asked us to do an original song. We just wrote it and it's a really focused kind of a song which added to the fact that you can just produce something like that on command. It turned out really, really good. It's a five minute long song. It's like a pretty up-to-date statement of what Yellowcard can write. It's kind of like, it shows our progression from the last record. (on spideman 2 soundtrack)
