Backstage With All Time Low on Three-City, One-Day Marathon

July 17, 2009 4:26 PM ET

Pop-punk band All Time Low attempted the nearly impossible — three secret shows in one day — to herald the arrival of new album Nothing Personal. While mentors Mark Hoppus and Pete Wentz pop up in the band's new video for "Weightless," the band was on its own for the whirlwind trek to Washington, DC, Chicago and Anahem, California on July 7th, and they filmed part of their travels for Rolling Stone on a handy Flip camera.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
