Ok.I've just spent about an hour reading all the definitions of Dashboard Confessional.It's amazing how shallow and ignorant people can be towards music.In my opinion, Dashboard Confessional have the most beautiful lyrics.Yes, they are soppy and some even cheesy but they are a breath of fresh air from bands that offend music and write pathetic lyrics about how their hearts are so broken and that they will never be able to forget about this certain person whom they fell in love with.It's pathetic.If you actually take the time to listen to Dashboard's lyrics you will realise they send out a positive message about how life goes on and that eventually, no matter how long it takes you will find your soul mate.Also this "stupid emo deppressing band" as they have been called play acoustic! Yes they are one of the very few bands who can actually sound amazing acoustic. In fact they sound a hell of alot better in their acoustic songs than in songs such as "Vindicated".Instead of calling Chris Carabarra a depressed,suicidal emo grow a backbone, listen to their lyrics and realise Chris Carabarra is a modern day poet whom likes to express his feelings and the album in which he wrote is about todays superfical societys where things that are "looked" down upon are on a pedestal and that everyone wants something for nothing.In this day in age it seems impossible to be able to express deep feelings in the form of poetry with out being called an "Emo".If you disagree with me why listen to their music? Why bother writing a definition for them? Why even take an intrest in them? Im sure things would be different if Dashboard Confessional were fronted by some blonde bimbo slut who's skirt is about the length of her intelligence.
"Hope dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption
Winding in and winding out
The shine of it has caught my eye." - Vindicated - Dashboard Confessional.
