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.

    i hope they truly broke up and they never reform. midtown is better. simple as that. i used to listen to cobra (???) and it's definitely shit once you start listening to midtown and compare both. and we all know gabe can't (don't want to) be in both at the same time. so, there's that. i seriously hope he doesn't consider going solo, he's not half as good as william beckett (former lover in midtown-the academy is days).
