Story of the Year is an alternative rock band from St. Louis, Missouri that initially formed in 1995 under the name 67 North. The band changed its moniker to Big Blue Monkey and dropped its debut EP Story of the Year in 2002 with the independent label Criterion Records. Shortly thereafter, the band settled on the name Story of the Year. After eight years of struggling to garner attention, the band had its first piece of commercial success with its major label debut and first LP, Page Avenue in 2003. The record spawned the hits "Until the Day I Die" and "Anthem of Our Dying Day," securing Story of the Year a place in the emo scene of the early 2000s. Despite a slip in popularity towards the end of the decade and as well as a brief hiatus, the band reunited in 2013 to celebrate the ten-year anniversary of its debut album.
