"All Downhill from Here" is the first single from New Found Glory's fourth studio album, Catalyst. The song helped the album springboard the band's success. "All Downhill from Here" was released to radio on April 6, 2004.[2]

The band initially wanted to name the song after the album (Catalyst), but their record label decided to change the name to All Downhill from Here so listeners could identify the song more easily after hearing it.

The single peaked at number 11 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks.[3]

Music video[edit]

The music video for the song was something quite out of the ordinary, a group of French animators, worked on creating a unique environment of creatures, and directed this video alongside Meiert Avis. The creatures build a unique structure. The band is featured in the video on a platform playing while gradually rising. As they continue to rise, they eventually reach an odd representation of heaven. Then, the platform that band was playing on drops and the band does as well. A creature runs through some of the supports and the whole structure collapses. When the music video for this song aired on MTV's TRL (Total Request Live), fans voted it on the show 50 days in a row. TRL retired this song due to the ongoing requests for it to be played.

  1. "All Downhill from Here"
