They were my escape from rap I used to think all there was rap that I was forced to listen to but I found out about them through my friend and they have totally cahged my life and how I veiw everything in my life and for all you assholes that say they suck and Chris can't sing then you're all asshole's, I mean is it so wrong that a man sings abotu what he feels? If there were more guys like him alot more people would be getting laid and maybe he's not the best singer but at least he sings about real passionate things unlike your rappers and wiggers that try to be something they're not and rap about things they've either never been through or things they used to go through which they don't have to anymore. But dashboard confessional sings about things that everyone goes through and they put the emotions into words we can all relate to no matter what color or sex we are.
Dashboard talks about real things
Ja rule makes everything up
When the driver of a car receives oral sex whilst still in the seat.
As we sat in the parking lot making out, Jane decided to give me a Dashboard Confessional.
Dashboard Confessional is emo however on the softer side of emo it is an amazing band if you like it. All the people here trashign dashboard are either not into this type of music or are so retarded that they can't comprehend the lyrics...dashboard's lyrics are beautiful and graceeful and for the record all u "haters" who say chris carabba cant sing for shit i have heard him sing and he is magnificent better than most bands.
here is some of there gorg. lyrics..
"This is incredible. Starving, insatiable, yes, this is love for the first time.
Well you'd like to think that you were invincible. Yeah, well weren't we all once before we felt loss for the first time? Well this is the last time. Well this is the last time well this is the last time."
wow i'm really tired of ignorant people being total assholes about this band. do people insult you for the metal music you listen to all of the time? i certainly hope not. because insulting us about the music we find refuge in isnt any different.
to all of the people who think chris carrabba is a girl for his lyrics and he has "ovaries" or whatever you say, do you have ANY idea how small-minded you sound? its just like saying: women cant play sports or skateboard simply because playing sports is a guy thing to do. if a guy who plays guitar and talks about his feeling is such an OPPRESSIVE thing to do, well minaswell get rid of equality for minorities then. deny us of our rights and simply commence the debacle of the free world.
chris carrabba is exercising his right to free speech by composing his songs and venting his emotions. there is no law that says YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL OR DIE. if you dont like the band, dont trash them, just simply dont listen to their stuff.
At the Civic Tour:
"All of you guys screaming faggot and waving your fucking middle finger out in the crowd, come up on stage. I'm giving you the mic. It's an open forum.
-silence for a couple of minutes-
Come on up! I'm talking about what i feel, so why dont you talk about what you feel? Sure i like Thrice and The Get Ups Kids too. they're great bands. But that doesnt mean that i dont have something valid to say.
Well if i'm such a pussy for singing about what i feel... well then this pussy is going to sing some more songs."
Thee talk you have with a person you're dating while in the car. Instead of looking them deep into their eyes to spill all, you speak at the windshield-dashboard area and exit the stopped vehicle.
"Sherrie drove me home after the movie on date #3. I gave her the dashboard confessional and bounced."
A truly amazing band in my opinion. They're basically acoustic emo.
For you people that bash Dashboard Confessional, you do have the right. Because if we took away your right to express your opinion, we'd have to take away ours to make it fair.
Although I think it is better to just not listen to the music if you don't like it than to bash it, you have the right to say whatever you want.
Yes, Dashboard Confessional has very sad, depressing lyrics,
But that's because he wrote them while his heart was broken.
People listen to sad music because alot of times it reminds them of good times that they've lost.
So yep, that pretty much explains it. I like Dashboard Confessional.
if you're going to liten to emo, listen to dashboard confessional
Dashboard Confessional isn't half bad
