While The City Sleeps, We Rule The Streets (2006–2007)
Cobra Starship was formed in 2005 after Midtown bassist Gabe Saporta took a trip to the deserts of Arizona. During this time, Saporta went on a “vision quest”, spending time with Native American tribes and smoking peyote. He began to create his vision for a new band, a melodic style of music heavily influenced by and . Upon returning home, Saporta rented a house in the Catskill Mountains and began writing what would become the band’s debut album, While The City Sleeps, We Rule The Streets. He posted a parody response to Gwen Stefani’s “Hollaback Girl” titled “Hollaback Boy” on Myspace. The song gained Saporta notoriety on the internet and he eventually signed to Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz’s label, Decaydance Records.

    It's so different compared to old Cobra. And normally I never say that. I still enjoyed MCR and P!ATD Paramore and FOB when they "changed"... But this is absolutely nothing like old Cobra anymore I wouldn't have even realized it was them if the radio didn't announce what the song was. So sad. :(

    Viva and Hot Mess are my favorite albums of theirs, but I really love the new single and I'm psyched to see what else these guys have in store.
