A simple rock band with semi-complex lyrics, an unoriginal instrumental sound, yet unique lyrical composition. Tending to repeat phrases coined by them truely, the band has been named emo
, although they are nothing close to it. They have been unfortunate enough as to have been considered an 'emo-clone', coined 'emo' by some lame know-it-all somewhere who hadn't heard the term since the late 80's or early 90's, and thought they'd have a good time making up an incredibly irrevelant definition to an uncommon word. That being said, Taking Back Sunday is simply a rock band, and nothing more. Not emo
, punk-rock, or pop-rock. Just rock at its simplest. Mainstream all the same, soon to be another MTV band since they signed with a major record label, after a successful run on Victory Records and the Vans Warped Tour. There's no denying, the band has talent, and deserve the success coming to them in the near future.
Taking Back Sunday is a rock band from Long Island, New York.
