Evanescence is fail.
Evanescence was founded in Little Rock Arkansas and is basically about Amy Lee, singer, writing about her dead husband. Up until there recent album, The Open Door, they could be considered 'tolerable', but with there new album there not, there just a big ol' pile of FAIL!

Most of the people who like Evanescence only like them because of there T.O.D., those people are basically girl who think there all tough because they listen to this band and where skater shirts and probably have never stepped on a skateboard before, or little emo kids that think THERE so dark and alone because they think there life reflects that of the song "My Immortal" while in fact they have a really good life and they only complain becuase there mommy or daddy didn't feel like spending $300 on them for something mundane.
Hey, did you go see Evanescence last night?

Why the fuck would I do that?! There just cheap imitaions of Epica, Nightwish, Tristania, Within Temptation, and every good band that has a female singer!

An amazing rock band from Arkansas, USA. They released songs such as Bring Me To Life, Going Under, Everybody's Fool and My Immortal, although their older work and demos, in my opinion is better.

They are NOT fake, unlike some other bands ;)
Amy Lee is just amazing.

1) To disappear or vanish into a mist.
2) 00's rock band from Little Rock, America. Songs include Bring Me To Life and Everbody's Fool. Sometimes called Christian Rock because they are Christians; only one song on Fallen, Torniquet, mentions God or Christ.
2) Did you hear the new Evanescence song?

Apart from the proper dictionary definition, Evanescence is a rock band with great lyrics. You don't have to be a depressed or be into rock to appreciate their music. Even if you're a content and happy person, you can to some extent relate to their songs. If they weren't any good, they wouldn't have so much publicity, think about it, how many other bands in the same genre have succeeded like them.
Eg) My Immortal - lost love?
Going Under - finally letting go?
Bring me to Life - self recognition?
Breathe No More -

Self-improvement is for the weak, the strong seek self-destruction.

Probably the best band to ever come into existence. Amy Lee's voice is perfect; the contradiction between the music and her singing sounds wonderful. Typically called "goth rock", the band doesn't really fit under that definition.
The people at my school don't understand good music; no one here likes Evanescence.

Evanescence is one of the best bands EVER. With the enchantingly beautiful, harmonious voice of Amy Lee, and an awesome beat, there is NOTHING better! They were founded by Amy Lee and Ben Moody (who left the band durring thier European tour in October of 2004).
"I just got the new Evanescence CD/DVD 'Anywhere But Home', and it ROCKS!"
"I Love Amy Lee of Evanescence, her voice is so beautiful.

A tragically underestimated rock band hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, U.S. Often known by idiots for "calling themselves gothic," "ripping off Lacuna Coil," and other overconformed demi-insults. Most known for the songs "My Immortal" and "Bring Me to Life." People generally forget that Evanescence has a large collection of songs pre-Fallen.

Ev have covered many songs, most notably "Tourniquet" ("My Tourniquet") by Soul Asylum and "Thoughtless" by Korn.
Annabelle: Despite how their lead vocalist always tries to go around saying "Oh, I'm such a demi-goth."
Reply: Imbucile, stop pretending you know what you're saying and actually read a fucking interview.
