# 9 – I Wanna
Continuing with our All-American Rejects songs list we turn to the great track “I Wanna.” This song was released in 2009 on the album When The World Comes Down. We just love those slamming guitars at the start of the song as they cut in and out so sharply. This is just a fun good time song with a very catchy melody and a great screaming guitar riff all through the song. The song was released as the third single from the album When The World Comes Down.
# 8 – Kids In The Street
In the number eight spot on our All-American Rejects songs list is the grooving song “Kids In The Street.” This one sounds a little different from the earlier All-American Rejects songs. There was a bit of a techno feel on this one. The song “Kids In The Street,” was released in 2012 on the album Kids In The Street. It was the second single released from the record. As great as the song was, the techno didn’t seem to work for fans because it didn’t break on to any of the charts around the world. It’s sort of an outlier in their catalog but one we really think highly of and wanted to place it on this All-American Rejects songs list.
