Throwback Thursday: Yellowcard ‘Ocean Avenue’
‘Ocean Avenue’ was the second single off of the album of the same name. It was released in February of 2004.
The song was certified 2X Platinum according to the RIAA.
Ocean Avenue is a street in Jacksonville, Florida, the band’s stomping grounds near their high school. Eventually, they moved their base to L.A.
The video is directed by Marc Webb and the suitcase featured in the Ocean Avenue has the same logo of a lamb on it as is featured in Brand New’s video for “Sic Transit Gloria… Glory Fades”. Marc Webb, used the lamb in his videos as a way to show that he directed them.
On a side note, I owned this album and I played the crap out of it! Loved Yellowcard!
I mean there is a violin in the band! How awesome is that?!
