Ok.I've just spent about an hour reading all the definitions of Dashboard Confessional.It's amazing how shallow and ignorant people can be towards music.In my opinion, Dashboard Confessional have the most beautiful lyrics.Yes, they are soppy and some even cheesy but they are a breath of fresh air from bands that offend music and write pathetic lyrics about how their hearts are so broken and that they will never be able to forget about this certain person whom they fell in love with.It's pathetic.If you actually take the time to listen to Dashboard's lyrics you will realise they send out a positive message about how life goes on and that eventually, no matter how long it takes you will find your soul mate.Also this "stupid emo deppressing band" as they have been called play acoustic! Yes they are one of the very few bands who can actually sound amazing acoustic. In fact they sound a hell of alot better in their acoustic songs than in songs such as "Vindicated".Instead of calling Chris Carabarra a depressed,suicidal emo grow a backbone, listen to their lyrics and realise Chris Carabarra is a modern day poet whom likes to express his feelings and the album in which he wrote is about todays superfical societys where things that are "looked" down upon are on a pedestal and that everyone wants something for nothing.In this day in age it seems impossible to be able to express deep feelings in the form of poetry with out being called an "Emo".If you disagree with me why listen to their music? Why bother writing a definition for them? Why even take an intrest in them? Im sure things would be different if Dashboard Confessional were fronted by some blonde bimbo slut who's skirt is about the length of her intelligence.
"Hope dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption
Winding in and winding out
The shine of it has caught my eye." - Vindicated - Dashboard Confessional.

Emo? You people really have no idea what you are talking about. This shitty band is not emo. In fact emo doesnt even really exist.
Person One: "Hey do you like emo?"
Person Two: "I hate you."

verb describe a musician who gives himself a band name despite clearly being a solo act.
"So, what's this Nine Inch Nails band all about?"
"See, it's this guy Trent Reznor..."
"Wait, it's just one guy?"
"He dashboard confessionaled? What a lame-o. I hate him already."

A band for a bunch of Faggots. The music is stupid and repetitive, and the singer sucks. I like all types of music but emo is just stupid depressing bullshit. If you want to ruin the rest of your day, pop in an emo CD, it'll do the trick. The lyrics are horrible, and there for people who can't deal with their problems themselves, so they cry on a CD about a GIRL. Girls aren't worth crying over, they come and they go. You people are cry-babies for no good reason, your not poor, your not dieing, and you have no reason to be depressed, SO SHUT THE FUCK UP.
Dashboard Confessional is a band of a bunch of faggots, singing for a bunch of faggots.

emo. just plain fucking emo.

majority of the crowd are fat emo girls with no friends and anorexic little boys wearing their little sisters jeans and la senza girl tops.

anything promoting this, in other words, dashboard confessional, nees to be kicked in the throat. and maybe sent to that planet in star wars with all the furry people so they could be eaten alive. fucking kids wouldnt survive for 3 minutes in the wilderness.

has anyone ever tried Ong-Bak'ing an emo? try it, they fall like a sack of raisins. its hilarious.
dashboard confessional emo: i promis you, from teh bottom heart, i will love yuo till death, till us part! i prome yuo as a lover and a freinnd, i will lovve you!

dashboard emo fan: omg <3

An emo band which is largely listened to by spoiled rich kids who live very pampered lives, in the hopes that it makes them appear to be deep and thoughtful. Also, it turns guys into large vaginas, due to their liking it to impress their girlfriends.
Dashboard Confessionals suck, do you really need an example?

Okay, now I'm not going to totally call Chris a total pussy here, but here's the deal with Dashboard. They aren't emo. As much as you'd like to think so, they just aren't. Hands Down is a fucking amazing song, so is Age Six Racer. Chris Carabba (or however you spell his last name) is talented, and I do enjoy a little Dashboard once in a while. I also think that he's writing from the heart and it's some good stuff. Emo?

He. Destroyed. Emo.

He took emo music and made it mainstream. He's all over TRL. He's on t-shirts (and not cool ones, like the one's with Bert McKraken from The Used, that say "Berty is my Homeboy" and he looks like Jesus).

And he cried during a song. That's too much. I mean, seriously? That's pathetic. Now, I cry too, I can be emo once in a while, but onstage, in front of like three thousand people? No. And he stopped the song too, didn't he? Man, that's bull. Kids don't want to see that. Kids want you to finish the damn song.

Now, please, do not flame me. Dashboard Confessional, by all means, is a good band. Definitely not "the best emo band ever", because Taking Back Sunday takes them, rapes them up the ass and runs over them with an 18-wheeler. Carabba is a good singer and a good guitarist and a good composer. Does he make emo music? No. Does he write thoughtful lyrics? If they make sense to you, then by all means, yes. Do they make sense to me? Sometimes, but usually I think it's crap.

Honestly, let's just categorize music into "rock". So Taking Back is "rock" and so is Dashboard. However, Taking Back Sunday is "good rock" and Dashboard Confessional is "not-so-good rock". Of course, their shittiness has NOTHING on Simple Plan. But that's another entry.

Plus, Chris waxes his eyebrows?
dude1: "so i LOOOOOVE dashboard confessional like so much!"

dude2: "taking back sunday will rape them up his waxed eyebrowed anushole and murder them with an emo knife"
