"The Middle" is a song by Jimmy Eat World which is about fitting in, and how you don't have to be the same as other people to be popular. (thanks, Michael - Durham, England)

This was the breakout hit for Jimmy Eat World, who released their first album in 1994. The song climbed to #1 on the Modern Rock chart in 2001 and made the Top 10 on the Pop charts in the summer of 2002. (thanks, Bertrand - Paris, France)

In Rock Band, the song is moderately difficult across the board, with the possible exception of bass, which mostly plays a steady stream of eighth notes. The guitar solo can catch you by surprise as it is not as easy as one might think.
