Fresh off their winning night at the Grammys, fun. released their fourth music video, “Why Am I The Only One”, off their sophomore album Some Nights. It’s based on something we know way too well -– losing luggage at the airport. Worst thing ever, right? And oh-so-stressful!
Instead of throwing a temper tantrum like most of us, the boys spend the majority of the video wailing, wondering what the hell they’re supposed to do without this very important suitcase. Which leaves us wondering the whole time, "What the hell is in that suitcase?"
But don’t worry -- it has a happy ending.

Fun. has created a trend of storytelling with their music videos, from a fun (pun intended) night out in “Carry On” to a battle in “Some Nights.” “Why Am I The Only One” isn’t far off that path and just proves what significant storytellers Nate, Jack and Andrew are for our generation.
After taking home Best New Artist and Song of the Year at the Grammys, guitarist Jack Antonoff told the crowded press room what the honor means to them -- besides the obvious fact that they just won a freakin' Grammy.
“We’ve been at this for so long and we’ve been doing this for twelve years, seen every side of this industry, played shows to zero people and had no one buy our albums,” he explained. “These moments, from playing big crowds to winning a Grammy, these moments are a culmination of what we’ve been through… This is the icing on top of the cake.”
Fun. won’t have too much time to relax, since they’ll be traveling the globe, performing in front of thousands of people on a Most Nights world tour in March, as well as headlining the very first Boston Calling festival in May!
