Over It is a rock band based in Orange County, California. Originally from Alexandria, Virginia, the band formed in 1998 to play pop punk. Most recently signed to Virgin Records, Over It is currently unsigned and inactive.

The band, originally a four-piece, started out on Negative Progression Records. After gaining a small but solid fan base, the band was picked up by Lobster Records, on which they released Timing Is Everything in 2002. In September and October 2003, the band supported Rufio and Motion City Soundtrack on a co-headlining cross country tour.[1] They release Silverstrand in 2005. Silverstrand chronicles the band's move to southern California, and is their most focused work to date. Also in 2005, the band added Ryan Ogren as an extra guitar player.[2] They released their Virgin Records debut, Step Outside Yourself, in late August 2006. They played an acoustic set at the first Bamboozle Left Festival which took place in Pomona, California.

Members of Over It have also performed as a second band, Runner Runner, in which Ogren sings lead.

On August 28, 2012, Munters released his first solo acoustic album, Wood & Wire. During interviews to promote that album, he confirmed that Over It has not disbanded, and speculated about a reunion and new material.[citation needed]

On May 31st, 2020, Munters appeared on the song "Wasteland" which can be found the "Chasm" EP by Vice Years.[3]
