Their most successful songs include "I'm Ready", "Sober Up", "Burn the House Down", "Way Less Sad", "100 Bad Days", "Weak", "World's Smallest Violin", and "Bang!". In 2019, their third album Neotheater debuted at number 8 on the Billboard 200, and hit number one on the Official Top Rock Albums chart. "Bang!" is their highest-charting song and only song to reach the top 10 in the United States, peaking at number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 on January 20, 2021.
|Origin||Manhattan, New York, U.S.|
The name "AJR" comes from the first initials of the three brothers. The band wrote, produced, and mixed their music in the living room of their apartment in Chelsea before moving into their very own studio. Their musical style combines elements of pop, electronic, and dubstep.
2005–2013: Formation and debut albumEdit
The Metzger brothers initially began writing, producing, and mixing their own material in the living room of their Chelsea apartment in Manhattan, New York, focusing on DIY indie pop music. They began performing around 2006, busking in Central Park and Washington Square Park. Initially, Jack played the harmonica, Ryan played the piano, and Adam played the bass. They later began playing various instruments. They began by performing covers, and have also put out 2 albums in 2010 and an EP in 2012 (which are now removed from all streaming services.).
In November 2012, Ryan tweeted a link to a video of their song "I'm Ready" to about 80 celebrities, including Australian singer Sia. Sia told her manager about the song, and he contacted Steve Greenberg, former president of Columbia Records and current CEO and Founder of S-Curve Records. He acts as their co-manager. AJR's debut single, "I'm Ready", which features a sample of SpongeBob SquarePants repeatedly singing his catchphrase "I'm ready" from the eponymous animated series' premiere episode, was commercially released on August 22, 2013. The song was placed in regular rotation on Sirius XM Radio's Top 20 on 20 and Hits 1 stations, and they performed the song on Good Day New York and VH1's Big Morning Buzz. The official music video for "I'm Ready" premiered on VEVO on October 15, 2013.
AJR released their debut EP, 6foot1 (later renamed I'm Ready after the band signed to Warner Music Group), on December 20, 2013. They were named Clear Channel's "Artist on the Rise" for the month of October 2013. By 2014, the band was already named IHeartRadio's Artist of the Month for Top 40 in January, and a Myspace "One to Watch" in February, while "I'm Ready" officially impacted pop radio in April. As of June 2023, the music video for "I'm Ready" had reached 40 million views on YouTube. Many thousands of singles sold each week, features in Billboard and the New York Post, while climbing the Top 40 chart. "I'm Ready" hit number one on Next Big Sound's chart in May 2014. The band performed the song on Today on July 29, 2014. "I'm Ready" had been certified Platinum in Canada and Australia.
2014–2015: Infinity and Living RoomEdit
The band's second EP, Infinity, was released on September 23, 2014. It contains 5 tracks, including the lead single "Infinity". They released a lyric video for the single. A majority of the work for the video was done by AJR, including directing and producing. The EP was released instead of their debut album, Living Room, which was pushed back to a release date of March 3, 2015. The band expressed the delay in their debut album was because they wanted to add some of their newer music to the project.
Around this time, the brothers began to take on distinctive appearances. Adam grew a full beard (later he would grow his hair long), Jack also grew a beard and would wear a bomber hat (which he admits is his mother's), and Ryan wore glasses, was clean shaven, and had a cowlick hairstyle.
On October 23, 2015, they released a bonus track from the album called "Let The Games Begin".
2016–2018: The ClickEdit
The brothers released their third EP, titled What Everyone's Thinking, on September 16, 2016, which features the lead single "Weak". The lead single was written by the band within a few hours, without any idea of the future success the single would have. "Weak" had been certified Platinum in the U.S., Canada, Norway, Netherlands and Belgium, and Gold in Germany, Italy, Sweden, and Australia. It has over 600 million streams on Spotify.
The band released its second studio album, The Click, on June 9, 2017, featuring the singles "Weak", "Drama" and "Sober Up", which features frontman Rivers Cuomo from Weezer, who co-wrote the track. This song reached number one on the Mediabase Alternative Singles chart in 2018. The band's 2018 tour in support of the album, The Click Tour, featured Hundred Handed, Grizfolk, Ocean Park Standoff, and MAX as openers.
In 2017, AJR released "It's On Us", a single written in collaboration with the It's On Us campaign, which was launched by Barack Obama in 2014 to combat sexual assault on college campuses across the United States.
An extended version of The Click was released on September 21, 2018. The Click (Deluxe Edition) included new tracks such as "Role Models", "Normal" and "Burn the House Down", the latter which the band released in March 2018 as a single and reached number two on the Mediabase Alternative Singles chart. Also included was "Pretender – Acoustic", an acoustic version of "Pretender", which was a collaboration between AJR, EDM artist Steve Aoki and American rapper Lil Yachty.
On January 30, 2019, AJR released "100 Bad Days", the first single for their then-unannounced album: Neotheater. A music video was released on March 8. The song was included on Taylor Swift's Apple Music playlist, "Playlist by ME!" in May 2019. The lyrics, "maybe a hundred bad days made a hundred good stories, a hundred good stories make me interesting at parties," are used in Taylor's description of this playlist of songs she loves and appreciates. On March 5, the band teased the second single, "Birthday Party". On March 11, the band announced their third studio album, Neotheater, which was to be released on April 26. "100 Bad Days" was performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on March 11. On March 11, the promotional single, "Birthday Party" was released. The second single, "Dear Winter", was teased on April 1, and released on April 5, with a music video being released later that same day. The album debuted on April 26 at number one on Billboard's Top Alternative Albums, number one on Billboard's Top Rock Albums, and number eight on Billboard's Top 200 Albums.
On October 25, the group released "Dear Winter 2.0", re-imagining the song by "changing the production and upping the emotion".
2021–2022: OK Orchestra and major label signingEdit
On February 12, 2020, the single "Bang!" was released, with a music video following the next day. The single at its release was intended to be part of the deluxe version of their album Neotheater, but was scrapped and made the lead single for OK Orchestra. A follow-up single was released on August 31, 2020, titled "Bummerland". On December 22, 2020, AJR released "My Play". AJR then took to their Twitter account and other social media accounts to announce OK Orchestra, on December 20, 2020. On February 17, 2021, the band released "Way Less Sad" with a music video on the same day. OK Orchestra was then released on March 26, 2021. The album has 13 tracks, including "Ordinaryish People" with the Blue Man Group. On March 21, 2021, AJR released OKO World, an interactive game on AJR's website. The new merchandise for the album was released on March 23. Their success with the song "Bang!" led them to win a Billboard Music Award for "Top Rock Song" In 2021. On August 30, they released a remix of "The Record Player Song" entitled "Record Player" with its original performers Daisy the Great in which they added their own verses and production.
On November 24, 2021, the band released a music video for their song “The Good Part” from their 2017 album The Click after its sudden spike popularity due to being featured on TikTok and YouTube Shorts.
The band released a music video for "Ordinaryish People" on February 9, 2022.

Harold and the Purple CrayonEdit
On March 11, 2022, the band announced that they will be working in collaboration with theatre producer Vivek J. Tiwary in a Broadway adaptation of the children's book Harold and the Purple Crayon. The show will be produced by Tiwary's TEG+, with original songs by the band. On September 23, 2022, it was announced that the book for the musical will be written by playwrights Robert Quillen Camp and Dan Rothenberg. This adaptation will feature Harold in a later stage of life compared to the books, with the band releasing a statement saying, "We adored Harold and the Purple Crayon growing up, and we thought: what if we saw Harold as a young adult, realizing that his problems are too profound to simply draw away". As of yet,[as of?] no release date for the show has been announced.
On April 22, 2022, the band announced that a new song would be releasing before the OK Orchestra Tour resumed. They shared a snippet of the song along with a presave link that showed that the song was titled "???", with numerous outlets calling the song "I Won't". This was apparently confirmed by the OK Orchestra Tour's setlist. "I Won't" was officially released on July 29, 2022, with its accompanying music video released a day later.
On November 11, 2022, the band released an image of a logo that read "TMM" alongside the caption "TOMORROW".
