Do we need to say more?
For those of you who didn’t live the amazing 2000s with Disney Channel, Aly and AJ was the iconic rock/pop duo that lived on iPod Shuffles everywhere. ‘Potential Break Up Song’ is the first single from their second studio album, Insomniatic. It was a very successful single in the summer and early fall of 2007, topping many video countdowns, and becoming Aly & AJ’s most successful single to date. At the time, it was the highest selling single by a Hollywood Records artist, as it was certified platinum by the RIAA for sales over 1,000,000 copies. Time magazine ranked “Potential Breakup Song” the ninth best song of 2007.
Fun Fact: There are two versions of this song played on the radio. One is the official album version, which is played on mainstream radio, while a version with all of the violence and sexual innuendo removed is played on Radio Disney. In the chorus, in “gettin’ me”, the edited version adds a “to” between “gettin'” and “me”. In the middle-eight, in “without me you’re gonna die”, “die” is replaced with “cry.”
