Some emo kids listen to DCFC, which is total disrespect for the band. DCFC is NOT emo, they are INDIE, almost pop-ish rock. I'd say that DCFC is more for preppy people, or just people with real musical tastes in general.
Many people say they love Death Cab, but they're liars unless they've heard Death Cab's old stuff, and not just their two most recent albums. The old stuff is gold.
Not emo. Unfortunately, if you write lyrics that are borderline depressing you get labeled "emo" when their music is more in line with other bands of that areas like Modest Mouse, and even The Shins.
Easily one of the greatest bands today.
Seeing them live was easily the best concert I have ever been to. They sound exactly the same as they do recorded, and 4 weeks later, I am still in awe of their remarkable talent. I will always always love Death Cab.
The Sound of Settling is Death Cab at it's worst. I hate that song.
