2007? Try 2004. They were huge when I was in junior high. They were probably responsible for the huge explosion of christian metalcore that midwestern teens just ate up.

Define the Great Line was much bigger than They're Only Chasing Safety. 2006-2007 was their peak.

Not for me at ALL. I saw THIS fucking album cover EVERYWHERE. Shirts, posters, in lockers...hung up EVERYWHERE in junior high and high school.

How old are you? I'm wondering if maybe it's kinda like a generation-gap type thing.

19. It's not a generation gap though. I'm not saying they weren't already incredibly popular at that time, but look at the numbers.

They're Only Chasing Safety took seven years to go gold. Define the Great Line only took six months. They're Only Chasing Safety peaked the Billboard 200 at 101. Define the Great Line peaked at number 2.

Oh, I know that their other stuff might have been more popular, but They're Only Chasing Safety was a fucking phenomenon at that time. Never again would I see so much Underoath shit and, to me, their popularity started trailing off after that.

I'm 20 and I also thought that 06-07 was their peak. That said, everyone I knew who loved them knew They're Only Chasing Safety by heart too, so they definitely had a strong following from 04-08. After that, they definitely fell off. I would say after Aaron left, although I suppose their last album was pretty popular.

Make that southeastern teens too. And southeastern young adults / kids in their 20's. It was really bad when I was in high school.
