Emo is short for emotional which means different feelings. Chris Carrabba writes about how he feel's. Alot of you are shooting off about how he writes about his life problems. Well isn't that what most all bands that write there own music do. Like ok Chris Carrabba writes about his ex girlfriends and stuff like that. And rock and metal bands write about there drug problems and there even there ex girlfriends and wifes and there sex and stuff. So what's really the difference..the way they play there instruments? Dashboard choose's to have a softer tone of music, if they wanted they could go a head and make there music heavey with electric guitar and alot of destortion..but they don't that's what makes them different they don't care if some people don't like how they do there music they play it how they feel it should be played.

Dashboards lyrics mean something. Alot of people can even relate to what Chris Carrabba is trying to say.

If you don't like them leave it at that, don't go shooting off about how there so emo and slit there wrist and shit. Everyone has there own say.
Dashboard Confessional relates to alot of teenagers in this generation.

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.

-still silence-

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.

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.
