Details Release Date: Aug 16, 2005; Lead Performance: The Click Five; Genre: Rock

The missing link between Backstreet Boys and Fountains of Wayne, this clean-scrubbed power-pop quintet called The Click Five (currently touring with BSB and enlisting Wayne's Adam Schlesinger as a guest composer) are probably too R&B-free for boy-band fans and too irony-free (that Thompson Twins cover!) for hipsters. Still, they boast an insanely catchy blend on Greetings from Imrie House of guitar crunch, pop hooks, and Queen-worthy vocal harmonies. Just try to get tunes like ''Just the Girl'' and ''Angel to You. . .'' out of your head.
