Fun (stylized as fun.) is an indie pop band based in New York City that was formed by Nate Ruess, formerly of The Format. After the breakup of The Format, Ruess formed Fun with Andrew Dost and Jack Antonoff, of Anathallo and Steel Train, respectively. Fun has released two albums: Aim and Ignite in 2009 and Some Nights in February 2012.

The band is best known for its three hit singles: Grammy Award-winning "We Are Young" (featuring Janelle Monáe), "Some Nights", and "Carry On". "We Are Young" reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and Digital Songs charts. "Some Nights" was released as the album's second single in June 2012, peaking at number three on the Hot 100 chart and becoming Fun's second Top 10 single, as well as the band's second song to reach platinum status in the United States.

On February 10, 2013, Fun won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist and won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year for "We Are Young". Additionally, Fun was a nominee for four other Grammy Awards: Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo or Group Performance (both for "We Are Young") along with Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album (both for Some Nights).

Please help me to be a singer.

Dear Nate,
I am doing a Modern US. History project on you and I was wondering if there was some way I could message you some questions more about your starting career life. Specially in high school. I would like to know more about your first band you were in.
I am a sophomore in Van Buren County High school. In a small town of Iowa.

My favorite some of yours is Some Nights because it's a song me and a graduate Best friend used to sing all the time. It always makes me think of her and bring wonderful memories.

I hope you can get back to me.

Sincerely,
Sydney Goemaat
