Kickass band (apparent by huge follwig of fans) that plays 'emo.' Whatever that means, im not sure. Emo seems to be a hugely wide classification.

You can judge the lyrics of your own:
"the new year"
...
so everybody put your best suit or dress on
let's make believe that we are wealthy for just this once
lighting firecrackers off on the front lawn
as thirty dialogues bleed into one

i wish the world was flat like the old days
then i could travel just by folding a map
no more airplanes, or speedtrains, or freeways
there'd be no distance that can hold us back.
...

personally, i like nerdy their little intros:
the glove compartment isn't accurately named
and everybody knows it.
so i'm proposing a swift orderly change.

cause behind its door there's nothing to keep my fingers warm
and all i find are souvenirs from better times
before the gleam of your taillights fading east
to find yourself a better life.
...
Im tough, i listen to slipknot. DCFC sucks, they are pussies. Since Ben Gibbard has a beautiful... i mean wussy voice, i can kick his ass, so I am cooler.
Im really inscure about my self image, all songs must be about murder.

Actually, im a giant pussy, and i cant listen to "the new year" without crying, so i listen to shallow death metal shit.

A clever-poppy all male band that produces marvellous music but unfortunately is subjected to catogorizations such as "emo".
"Death Cab For Cutie is an awesome band that needs no lame label"

A wonderful young group singed by Barsuk records from the indie-rock homeland of Washington State. Name came from a psychedlic song from the 60's.

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.
Emo? Please. Bright Eyes sounds even less emo these days.

A great talented indie rock band that has unfortunately been called an 'emo' band. All the emo rockers that listened to taking back sunday and brand new heard death cab for cutie and loved them. Since emo kids are totally lame and stupid, they started to call death cab 'emo.' death cab for cutie is a pop-indie band, not emo.
Calling death cab for cutie an 'emo' band is like calling slayer a country band.

On an episode of The O.C. Seth is so caught up with working on his comic book that he has to miss his favorite band, Death Cab For Cutie, play in town that night.

An AMAZING band that should be commended for their awesome melodic tunes and beautiful lyrical talent.
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.
My favourite songs for newcomers who would like to download some Death Cab For Cutie ; I Was A Kaleidoscope, Styrofoam Plates, Passenger Seat, Blacking Out The Friction, Expo '86, Hindsight, Company Calls, What Sarah Said and I Will Follow You Into The Dark.
The Sound of Settling is Death Cab at it's worst. I hate that song.
