All Time Low (FNMTV Presents: A Miley-Sized Surprise… New Year’s Eve 2009)
If All Time Low had played anything other than “Poppin’ Champagne,” then it would have been a major missed opportunity.
The Academy Is… (FNMTV Presents: A Miley-Sized Surprise… New Year’s Eve 2009)
Just a few months after what would end up being the Academy Is…’s final full-length, Fast Times At Barrington High, was released, the Chicago indie pop act performed one of its singles, “Summer Hair = Forever Young,” to a more than welcoming crowd.
Plain White T’s (Fox’s New Year’s Eve Live 2010)
Plain White T’s essentially held a big ol’ group sing-a-long in the final 30 minutes of 2009 with this performance of “Hey There Delilah.”
My Chemical Romance (2011)
My Chemical Romance played “Sing” and “Na Na Na (Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na)” live from the heart of Rockefeller Center to welcome in 2011, the latter of which really got the crowd pumped, jazz hands and all.
Gym Class Heroes (New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2012)
If Adam Levine wasn’t available then the Gym Class Heroes tapping Bad Rabbits’ Fredua Boakye to assist with vocal duties on “Stereo Hearts” instead was definitely a good call.
Fall Out Boy (New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2014)
Fall Out Boy performed a few tracks during the Ryan Seacrest-led live broadcast, but it was the fire-fueled “My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light ‘Em Up)” that stuck out the most.
New Politics (Fox’s New Year’s Eve Live 2014)
New Politics hit the stage running with their infectious hit single, “Harlem,” to get the crowd pumped up to ring in 2014.
The Fray (New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2014)
The Fray threw it back to 2005 with their emotional, piano-driven single, “How To Save A Life” for ABC’s 2014 special.
