The Maine has MySpace tweens and teens eating out of its hands. And can you blame the Tempe, Arizona, quintet? With its emo haircuts, skinny jeans, and songs filled with bouncy choruses about girls, love and boys who just want to have fun, it's not hard to see the band's charm. MTV has seen it — the network featured the Maine's music on The Hills and Making the Band — while further proof lies in the band's twelve-track pop-punk arsenal Can't Stop, Won't Stop, which features the poppy single "Everything I Ask For." The guys even went crunk on last year's Punk Goes Crunk, on which they covered Akon's "I Wanna Love You." Family Force 5, 3OH!3, Hit the Lights and A Rocket to the Moon are also on the bill.
