The Ataris – The Boys of Summer


In 2003, the rock band The Ataris covered “The Boys of Summer” for their album So Long, Astoria. The song became their second single when a radio station began to play it. The single peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Modern Rock Chart (held off the No. 1 top spot by Linkin Park‘s “Faint“) and No. 20 on the Billboard Hot 100. It remains their most successful single.
