"Dear Maria, Count Me In" is the second single from the rock band All Time Low's second album So Wrong, It's Right. It became the band's first song to chart on a Billboard chart, reaching No. 86 on the Pop 100 and having a music video that aired frequently on MTV. The minor commercial success of the song helped pave the way to their breakthrough into major commercial success with their follow-up album Nothing Personal in 2009. In 2011, the song was certified gold by the RIAA despite never receiving radio airplay.[citation needed] It has become a live and fans favorite, and All Time Low always closes with this song during live performances.[citation needed]

Music video[edit]

The music video to this song features Alex, Jack, Zack, and Rian at a strip club watching a girl (probably Maria) strip, with Alex's alter ego on the other side of the club. The band and Alex's alter ego compete over her.
