American rock band
Of a Revolution, better known as O.A.R., is an American rock band founded in 1996 that has become a hit among college students, with songs relating to the band members' personal lives at The Ohio State University and growing up in Rockville, Md.

The band performs the theme song for the ABC show "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." During a two-hour special that aired, they provided a street-side concert, including a live performance of "So Much," the Extreme Makeover Home Edition theme, in front of the newly redesigned Los Angeles Free Clinic.

On Jan. 14, 2006, O.A.R. performed for some 18,000 fans at a sold out Madison Square Garden, which earned them a review in The New York Times. That same year, the band performed at the Major League Baseball All-Star Game in Pittsburgh during All-Star Sunday, and at a rally to benefit Darfur in Central Park.

Their music videos "Love and Memories" and "Lay Down" have been featured on VH1 and MTV, and they played three nights at the Gorge with the Dave Matthews Band. For more information or to hear music samples, visit www.ofarevolution.com/.
