Ian’s Weekly Throwback Jam: ‘Are You Gonna Be My Girl’ [VIDEO]
I was feeling a little rockish this week and dug through my old mix CD's to find this little gem from 2003. Ranking number 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 back in '03 it's one of Jet's biggest hits today with 'Are You Gonna Be My Girl'.
Jet was formed in Australia in 2001 and included band members: brothers Nic (lead vocals and rhythm guitar) and Chris Chester (drums), Cameron Muncey (lead guitarist) and Doug Armstrong (bass). Mark Wilson took over as the bass guitarist in 2002.
'Are You Gonna Be Girl' was the first single released off their debut album 'Get Born' which is still their best selling record to date. 'Get Born' reached 26 on the Billboard Hot 200 and has been certified platinum in three different countries including the U.S., the U.K., and Australia. Jet had a few more hits, but nothing compares to their first breakout jam in my opinion.
