OneRepublic wordt in 2002 opgericht door Zach Filkins en Ryan Tedder. Het tweetal krijgt versterking van Eddie Fisher, Drew Brown en Brent Kutzle en deelt in de beginjaren hun muziek via internet.



Producer Timbaland krijgt lucht van de kwaliteiten van de groep en helpt ze met hun debuutsingle, Apologize. De single bereikt ook in ons land, voor vier weken, de eerste plaats van de Top 40. In de jaren daarna bereikt de groep verscheidene malen de Top 40, maar een top-10-hit zit er niet meer in.



In 2013 verschijnt het derde album van de groep, Native, waarvan op dat moment Feel Again al in de tipparade had gestaan. Counting Stars, de derde single van het album, staat in de zomer van 2013 vier weken in de tipparade. In december wordt de single alsnog de zevende hitnotering in de Top 40 en weet uit te groeien tot de grootste hit van de groep. In het voorjaar van 2014 verschijnt Love Runs Out, een nieuwe track die later wordt toegevoegd aan de digitale release van het album Native. Met de track scoort OneRepublic voor de vierde keer de Alarmschijf.

Na afwezigheid van ruim 2 jaar is OneRepublic in 2016 terug met de Top 40-hit Wherever I Go, dat wordt opgevolgd door Kids. Beide nummers zijn terug te vinden op het album Oh My My

Songtekst

Days when
We'd fight, we'd fight till I would give in
Yeah, perfect disasters
We were reaching, reaching for the rafters, hey hey

And on most of the days
We were searching for ways
To get up and get out
Of the town that we were raised, yeah
Cause we were done
I remember

We were sleeping in cars
We were searching for Oz
We were burning cigars
With white plastics tips
Till we saw the sun
And we said crazy things like

I refuse to look back thinking days were better
Just because they're younger days
I don't know what's 'round the corner
Way I feel right now I swear we'll never change

Back when we were kids
Swore we would never die
You and me were kids
Swear that we’ll never die

Lights down
And we're drivin', we're drivin' just to get out
Yeah, perfect disasters
Yeah, we were swinging, swinging from the rafters, hey hey

We were dancing in cars
We were looking for ours
We were naming the stars
After people we knew
Till we had to go
And we were saying things like

I refuse to look back thinking days were better
Just because they're younger days
I don't know what's 'round the corner
Way I feel right now I swear we'll never change

Back when we were kids
Swore we would never die
You and me were kids
Swear that we'll never die

Nights when we kept dancing
Changing all our plans and
Making every day a holiday
Feel the years start burning
City lights, they're turning
Something 'bout this feels the same

Back when we were kids
Swore we would never die
You and me were kids
Swear that we'll never die

I refuse to look back thinking days were better
Just because they're younger days (You and me were kids)
I don't know what's 'round the corner
Way I feel right now I swear we'll never change

You and me were kids
