Switchfoot

Switchfoot is a United States rock and alternative rock band that rose to mainstream prominence in the mid-2000s. According to Jon Foreman, the name "Switchfoot" is a surfing term. "We all love to surf and have been surfing all our lives so to us, the name made sense. To switch your feet means to take a new stance facing the opposite direction. It's about change and movement, a different way of approaching life and music."

A number of Switchfoot's songs were included in the 2002 movie A Walk to Remember. Singer and actor Mandy Moore, who starred in the movie, sang Switchfoot's song "Only Hope" during a scene in the movie.

Their latest album, The Beautiful Letdown, has been their most successful to date. The hit single "Meant to Live" enjoyed widespread airplay on rock radio stations and transitioned into the top 40. A re-recorded version of "Dare You to Move" has been high on the charts as well. The song "Gone" has also received airplay on Christian radio stations but wasn't released as an actual single. In 2005, Switchfoot received five Dove Award nominations, including Artist of the Year.
