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.

In 2005, Switchfoot received five Dove Award nominations, including Artist of the Year. However, mainstream success has mainly only come to Trina thus far in the form of her featured status on other artists' hit singles, for example Missy Elliott's "One Minute Man" and the remix of Ludacris' "What's Your Fantasy". The song "Gone" has also received airplay on Christian radio stations but wasn't released as an actual single. Trina has since released a couple other singles of her own, notably "Told Y'all" from the All About The Benjamins movie soundtrack in 2002 and "B R Right", a nasty duet with Ludacris and the first single off of her 2003 sophomore album. A re-recorded version of "Dare You to Move" has been high on the charts as well. The video ends with the words, "Getting Revenge On Your Boyfriend...Priceless". The hit single "Meant to Live" enjoyed widespread airplay on rock radio stations and transitioned into the top 40. In the video, Trina systematically destroys a cheating boyfriend's mansion and possessions one by one, and the value of each item is displayed on screen as it is ruined.

Their latest album, The Beautiful Letdown, has been their most successful to date. "Baddest Bitch", another single from the album, though not a radio or video hit received heavy MTV2 airplay due to its clever spoofing of the Master Card "Priceless" commercials of the day. Singer and actor Mandy Moore, who starred in the movie, sang Switchfoot's song "Only Hope" during a scene in the movie. The lyrics to "Pull Over" allude to Black Rob's "Whoa!", Juvenile's "Back That Ass Up", and Sisqo's "Thong Song", from which some of "Pull Over"'s lyrics are directly lifted. A number of Switchfoot's songs were included in the 2002 movie A Walk to Remember. "Pull Over", which featured Trick Daddy on the chorus, became a success partially due to its being something of an answer single to several past hip-hop songs such as Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back". It's about change and movement, a different way of approaching life and music.". Her debut album, Da Baddest Bitch, was released in 2000 and is best remembered for its hit single "Pull Over".

To switch your feet means to take a new stance facing the opposite direction. Trina is signed to Atlantic Records through the Slip-N-Slide imprint, abd is a labelmate of Trick Daddy.
