Debate Team is an American power pop band from Los Angeles, California, consisting of vocalist Ryan McNeill, drummer Dan Konopka of OK Go, guitarist Drew Brown of OneRepublic, bassist Bob Morris of The Hush Sound and keyboardist Adam James.[1]

Their debut extended play, Wins Again, was released independently on January 24, 2011.


The band started out as a recording project by flatmates Brown and McNeill. Both had an interest in artists such as Elvis Costello and Queen.

With the success of Brown's main project, OneRepublic, the band went on hiatus until 2008. In 2009, Konopka, James and Morris joined Brown and McNeill to complete the band.
