|Taking Back Sunday studio album chronology|
Tell All Your Friends is the debut album of American rock band Taking Back Sunday, released in 2002. It spawned the singles "Timberwolves at New Jersey", "Great Romances of the 20th Century", "Cute Without the 'E' (Cut from the Team)", which had a Fight Club-inspired video, and "You're So Last Summer", which featured the American rapper Flavour Flav in its music video.
This album is named after the lyrics in "Cute Without the 'E' (Cut from the Team)."
The fourth track, "There's No 'I' in Team", was written in response to Brand New's song "Seventy Times 7" and contains some of the same lyrics: "Is that what you call tact? You're as subtle as a brick in the small of my back; so let's end this call and end this conversation". It also shares lyrics with the song "Mix Tape" by Brand New, both containing the phrase "I've got a twenty dollar bill, that says..." Each song articulates an opposing viewpoint regarding an amorous dispute between members of the two bands at the time. This was a minor episode in the artists' lives and they have since put it behind them; the bands and their members are now on good terms.
In a 2011 article featured in Alternative Press, bassist Shaun Cooper stated that the band was unhappy with "some of the choices that had been made without us", explaining how the introductions to the songs "Great Romances of the 20th Century" and "The Blue Channel" were changed from how they were initially intended by studio technicians without the band's input. The introductions to these songs as originally intended can be heard on The Tell All Your Friends Demo.
This album was performed live in its entirety at Bamboozle 2011 on April 30, 2011. On October 4, 2012, the band embarked on a 10 year anniversary tour with supporting act Bayside, along with Transit, The Menzingers, Mansions, Gabriel The Marine and Man Overboard, where the album in its entirety was played.
Although this album charted at 183 on the U.S 200.
