Pop band Metro Station was formed in 2006 after the mothers of Trace Cyrus and Mason Musso introduced them to each other. Trace Cyrus is the older brother of Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus and Mason Musso is the older brother of Mitchel Musso from Hannah Montana. The band released its first LP in 2007 entitled Metro Station, which peaked at #1 on Billboard’s U.S. Electronic Albums chart.

Alternative Rock band Hey Monday busted onto the music scene in 2007. Their participation on Fall Out Boy’s ‘Believers Never Die Part Deux’ tour is in support of their first album Hold on Tight, released in September 2008.
