Plain White T's is an American pop punk band started in 1997, originating from Villa Park, Illinois High School friends Tom Higgenson and Ken Fletcher. The group had a mostly underground following in Chicago basements, clubs, and bars the following decade, and it underwent numerous personnel changes. They are best known for their songs "Hey There Delilah", which charted high in many countries, and "1, 2, 3, 4". In 2008, they received a Grammy nomination for "Hey There Delilah"; it and "Hate (I Really Don't Like You)" from the album Every Second Counts broke them into the mainstream. The group's latest album is Big Bad World, released in 2008.
