The Used is an amzing band, who have amazing lyrics. They have 7 albums: Demos From The Basment, The Used, Maybe Memories, In Love and Death, Berth, Lies for the Liars, and Shallow Believer. But only 4 of them are studio records(The Used, In Love and Death, and Lies For the Liars.)
The band consists of Bert Mccracken on vocals; Quinn Allman on guitar; Jepha Howard on bass; and Dan Whitesides on the drums, although Branden Steineckert was the original drummer but was kicked out in the summer of 2006.
The Used are from Orem, Utah. They have toured with Blink-182, My Chemical Romance, Goldfinger, Linkin Park on their Projekt Revolution tour, Warped Tour, and recently headlined Get A Life Tour.
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.
Poetic Tragedy - The Used
The cup is not half empty as pessimists say
As far as he's sees, nothing's left in the cup
A whole cup full of nothing for him to indulge
Since the voice of ambition has long since been shut up
A singer, a writer, he's not dreaming now of going nowhere
He gave heed to nothing, and all that he was....
Is just a tragedy
So he voyages in circles
Succeeds getting nowhere
And submits to the substance
That first got him there
Then in violent, frustration, he cries out to God or just no one
Is there a point to this madness and all that he was....
Is just a tragedy
He feels alone
His heart in his hand
He feels alone
Then on that last day he breaks
And he stood tall
And he yelled... and he takes his life
The Used is an awesome band that hails from Oram, Utah. Their mellodic songs are enhanced by Bert McCraken's (lead singer) ability to scream to perfection.
I f!@#$ing love The Used
A fucking awsome band that kicks a monkeys ass that has dingle berries coming down from it!!!!!
The Used KICKS ASS
this band kicks ass!
the used rocks!!
A great band.
The Used is the greatest band ever.
a borderline un-genred unknown-by-many band from utah that first came out into the mainstream public in summer of 2002, with lyrics about past experiences, love/relationships, rocky friendships, etc. they kick so much ass is all you have to know. buy the cd, bitch.
"the used are my favorite band" *nods*
The best Emo/screamo band next to Taking Back Sunday
also an amazing band which is being ruined by skanky 14 year old groupie fan girls who run around the concerts, half dressed shouting "LYK OMG BERT UR SO F-ING HOTT I LYK LUV U AND I WANNA HAVE UR BABIES!!!!!1111!!!1!11!"
The Used is an awesome rock band who (unlike the rap artists out there)have the talent of playing their own instrument.
I wouldn't say that they're the best band in the world, but at this moment in my life, I love their music so f**king much. I can't go 5 minutes without listening to Bert McCracken's wide range of vocals. I wake up and go to sleep to their Maybe Memories CD, especially Noise and Kisses, Poetic Tragedy, and Box Full of Sharp Objects.
I can't wait until The Used's new CD comes out in August!
