- Seven years later and this still slaps

Very important and personally influential album for me.

- Yes

I won’t stop Too much color on the walls

- Hey wait

There was a shooting at the school after this song and it said he’s coming for you

- NO HIGH SCOOLER

Didn’t know this

- Is good

I loved

- My life

I'm in total love with this song mainly because I can relate to it.... lol love it

- Broooo!!!!

This song isn’t encouraging school shootings! This song is pointing out things about school shooters!

- This song is literally about columbine.

So I can't give it any rating higher than zero stars.

- 🙏🏻🤙🏻🚶🏻‍♂️💔

One of the many alternative albums out there filled with gems from start to end!

- Amazing Debut

This is one of the best albums ever released. Track after track, there is a soul filled session waiting for you. The electronic instruments are used extremely well. They make the songs very unique and enjoyable. The record starts of strong with an amazing use of tempo and drumming. The album has a lot of gems and you can really never get bored. This is Foster the People at their most cheerful. This record can brighten your day and it's an amazing piece from start to finish. Favorites: Waste, Houdini, I Would Do Anything For You, Miss You, Broken Jaw

- Pumped Up Kicks!!

Foster the People is an incredibly talented and unique band. I'm so glad I found them a couple years ago. I have been to three of their concerts and they are one of my favorite bands!! My personal favorite from this album is Pumped Up Kicks, and I know that it's more mainstream, but this was the first song I heard from them which brought me here to the rest of the album. For all of you that are complaining and saying Pumped Up Kicks is about someone shooting their peers (some of you thinking it's about the Columbine shooting) be mature, get over it and grow up. This is an amazing and creative song that I've loved since it was released! This album is totally worth the buy!!

- great song

THIS SONG IS AWESOME. it’s always been my favorite 👌🏻

- Honestly

I love this album, and Pumped Uo Kicks is a great song despite the hate. Listen idiots, singing about a dark topic isn't encouraging the behavior. It's authoritarian to say that because of the material in a song, it shouldn't be allowed to be played. It's art damnit, just like some whiny white girl singing about all her ex girlfriends is art. You don't censor really great Greek art that has nudity, death, and sex in it do you? Why should be hate this song, has it really inspired a bunch of shootings? I don't think so. To be honest if the people are so concerned about shootings, go actually do something about it instead of complaining on line. Go out and get some self defense classes, or fundraiser for better security in your school, or get a concealed carry permit or buy a gun so you can protect yourself.

- So Good!!

Helena Beat and Waste are amazing!!! But warrant is the best!!

- ‘FOSTER THE BEAT”

WHEN I FIRST HEARD “HELENA BEAT”I WAS WORKING SECURITY AT A HAUNTED PALACE NEAR MACARTHUR PARK IN LA.WHERE THE SPIRITS OF DEAD SERVICEMEN ROAMED THE VAST HALLWAYS AND ROUTINELY MANIFESTED THEMSELVES IN FRONT OF VIRTUALLY ANYONE EITHER DAY OR NIGHT.(BUT ESPECIALLY THE NIGHT!)ALL UNDER THE STARTLING GAZE OF A SATANIC ETCHED IN MARBLE RENDERING OF LUCIFER HANGING ON A CROSS !AS I HEARD HELENA BEAT ON THE BUILDINGS STATE OF THE ART SOUND SYSTEM,VIA “INDIE 103.1”WHICH WAS STILL ON TERRESTRIAL RADIO AT THE TIME.THEN ONE NIGHT THE SOUND SYSTEM DISAPPEARED OR WAS STOLEN BY SOMEONE OR SOMETHING(?)YET,THE LOBBY AND DOOR CAMERAS NEVER PICKED UP THE PRESENCE OF ANYONE REMOVING IT!?.WITH HELENA AND THE BEAUTIFUL KARMA THAT IT PERPETUATED NO DOUBT FRIGHTENING THE HELL OUT OF THE “HUNGRY GHOSTS”AT THIS DEEPLY TROUBLED VORTEX,MASQUERADING AS A SIMPLE OFFICE STRUCTURE.LISTEN TO HB AND FOSTER WHENEVER YOU REQUIRE AN EXORCISM OF YOUR OWN! M.NOEL AKA;”REVOLUTION ROCK”

This is a very good album. It gave me hope that music would eventually get good again. Too bad they started to stink after this.

- Pumped up kicks ❣️

My friends and I t listen to this on our way to football games ( and yes I’m a GIRL!!!!! )

- This album makes me happy!

This album is upbeat and always has me dancing & singing along. I really want to like their follow-up album but I just can't get into it. So I'll just keep listening to this one.

- Good song

Good song

- Great album

I enjoy every song and blast them on repeat

- Incredible work

One of my fav albums ever. If it were up to me, every single song on torches would be a number 1. Incredibles stuff dudes 👊

- Great song 🎧

Pumed kicks

- legend

this album is legend

- bop

My favorite bop since I was a kid

- Pumped up kids

🎵🎶All the other kids with the funk up kids better run better run faster than my bullet 🎵🎶

- Pumped up kicks

Everyone is salty because it involves shooting up your local Walmart

- Listen

I like Pump up kids but I don’t like what’s it’s about I don’t like the song because it’s about a school shooter you can kinda tell from better run better faster than my bullet and so on.

- my fav band

Saw them in concert recently (w/ AJR) so i feel obligated to say: They ROCK!!!!!!! They diserve more radio play than they get. I love Imagine Dragons and I've gotta say, I'd rather here these guys anytime.

- Dude this is about a school shooting LIKE BRO Still a good song tho😤🤪

Bruh

- Perfect

This is the best album I have ever heard. Absolute perfection but pumped up kicks off isn’t the best song on here Helena beat is.

- This will change yer life

Listen to the terrible song lyrics!Roberts got a quick hand,he’ll look around the room,he won’t tell you his plan he’s got a rolled cigarette hanging out his mouth he’s a cowboy kid yeah found a six shooter gun in his dads closet hidden oh in a box of fun things I don’t even know what but he’s coming for you yeah he’s coming for you...etc.go on google and look up pumped up kicks lyrics

- Early Teen years Nostagia

This is the first acctual good band I ever discovered. When I was about 11 or 12 I heard pumped up kicks on the radio in my brothers Jeep and a couple of years later I saw the Houdini music video. Ever since then They’ve been my favorite band!

- Does any one actually know that this is referencing something?

???

- Now Really popular

This song is so good and is starting to be popular again.

Torches Wiki

A torch is a stick with combustible material at one end which can be used as a light source or to set something on fire. Torches have been used throughout history, and are still used in processions, symbolic and religious events, and in juggling entertainment. In some countries, notably the United Kingdom and Australia, "torch" in modern usage is also the term for a battery-operated portable light.
