Fun (technically Fun., but that wreaks havoc with sentences) touring drummer Will Noon used to play in a band called Straylight Run, which also featured members of New Jersey emo band Taking Back Sunday. Straylight Run ended when those members decided to re-join their former band in 2010.
On December 6, 2011, the cast of the hit TV show Glee covered "We Are Young
" by Fun in an episode called "Hold on to Sixteen." The group sang the song in the auditorium of McKinley High after the end of Sectionals. The Glee version of the song went to #1 on iTunes later that night.
In 2012, the Fun song "We Are Young
" was featured in a Super Bowl commercial for the Chevy Sonic called "Stunt Anthem." The ad also featured skateboarder Rob Dyrdek and rock band OK Go.
"We Are Young" was a #1 on the Hot 100 for six consecutive weeks. Billboard also announced in April 2012 that the song had become the first (and, at the time, only) song to gain 300,000 downloads for seven weeks straight.
Lead singer Nate Ruess worked at a law firm while he struggled to become a successful musician. His uncle was a Broadway performer, but Ruess never received formal vocal training. His peers often told him that he didn't have the talent to make it as a professional performer; he proved them wrong.
In an attempt to gain notoriety, Fun lead singer Nate Ruess cornered the Hip-Hop producer Jeff Bhasker in a New York City bar. Bhasker had previously canceled two meetings with Ruess and had just finished a long day recording with Beyoncé. He decided to give Ruess ten minutes of his time, and when Ruess started belting out the chorus to Fun's future hit song "We Are Young," Bhasker knew he needed to book studio time with the band as soon as possible.
When Fun started, the band didn't have any goals other than to get people to listen to their music. Guitarist Jack Antonoff says: "We just wanted to have people give a s--t, which we've always had, luckily. Whether it was going to be 100 people or 10,000 people, we can find joy in anything."
" was the second single from Fun's 2012 album of the same name, but the band didn't really think of the song as a single when they made it. Fun multi-instrumentalist Andrew Dost says "That would've been the last one, in my opinion. Especially when we were recording it, that wasn't really one we were thinking of. We were kind of viewing it as the most experimental or the most far down this path we were going down with these sounds. I don't think it stuck out as a single."
Guitarist Jack Antonoff dated actress Scarlett Johansson from 2001 to 2002 having met at school. A list of his other girlfriends include Arrested Development star Alia Shawkat from 2007 to 2010 and more recently Girls creator and star Lena Dunham.
