OAR’s song ‘Shattered (Turn The Car Around) quickly became a hit in 2008 for its beautiful lyrics, melody, and relateable content. The first verse tells of a man who is tired of his mediocre life but stuck in his hometown due to his love for a former partner. With lines like “I need a change…but it’s always back to you,” the singer expresses his anguish and battle between his needs and feelings.
In the bridge, the subject denies his devotion to his love, stating “I’m good without you.Read the rest of this entry »

You might know the band Of A Revolution or simply called “O.A.R.” You might have even seen a concert or two they’ve performed if you get your television through services like direct tv kentucky. You probably are such an O.A.R. fan that you even know the members, the albums and some of the inspirations behind their work, but how familiar are you with their charitable works? Reaching stardom, it seems like the group never quite forgot their roots and have spent just as much time, if not more, giving back to the community – pretty revolutionary, wouldn’t you say?
Some of their more well-known charitable endeavors come in the form of the band’s own Heard The World foundation which tirelessly searches for ways in which to support youth education not just through funding but sustainable projects that work and provide a long-term solution. And that’s not all. The band has collaborated with organizations dedicated to helping veterans of war as well as those on the losing end of the economy and they still continue this day to straddle the line between celebrities and humanitarians. Maybe that’s why they are called Of A Revolution – because they are revolutionizing both the industry of music and our perception of rock stars in it.

What Is The Best OAR Song Or Album?
“In Between Now and Then” is easily OAR’s best album. Released in 2003, this album was full of solid jam rock that the group eventually abandoned for a more soft-rock sound. The production on this album was excellent and though many songs had some distinct similarity to Dave Matthew’s Band, they still had plenty of their own sound. The reggae influence is a bit more subtle throughout this album, but the vibe still definitely extends to the overall sound.
Though Marc Roberge is not a particularly good singer, the Read the rest of this entry »
