It is very hard to classify The Used into a genre but overall they are a rock band.
Their older albums are a bit harder, with more screaming, but their new cd Lies For the Liars has a more jazzy sound to it, along with some more slow songs, the song Wake the Dead, pretty much sums up what their whole entire new album sounds like.
Bert Mccracken has a great voice, he can hit and hold the high notes and he can scream till he throws up(which he does often on stage). Along with Quinn's complex guitar riffs, Jepha's bass rhythms and Branden's beats, makes The Used one of the best bands out there today.
