Hawthorne Heights, previously A Day In The Life, is a band hailing from Ohio. The genre of music they're classified as playing, is usually questionable, and varies from person to person. Their first album, The Silence in Black and White, was released as three seperate albums. One being the standard album, the second and third being the deluxe edition, including a DVD of the band, and several extra songs, in your choice of an included black or white slipcover. Their second album, If Only They Were Lonely, is avaliable in both the "boy" and "girl" version, both containing a different lyrics booklet, with different art. If you put both booklets together, the entire story is revealed, although the album itself isn't really a concept album. Both albums were released with Vicory Records, an independent record label. A DVD was also released, called This Is Who We Are. The band has also released three music videos, to date, for the songs "Ohio Is For Lovers," "Niki FM," and "Saying Sorry," all currently recieving MTV and FUSE airplay. In some areas, they may or may not be in radio circulation.

The song "Ohio Is For Lovers" has been deemed controversial by many, due to the lyrics, "So cut my wrists and black my eyes / So I can fall asleep tonight / Or die / Because you kill me / You know you do, you kill me well / You like it, too, and I can tell" the word "cut" being blanked out on some television and radio stations. The song is also said to be depicting suicide, although from the lyrics, more than likely suggests the person the song was written about, was (figuratively) killing the narrator.

Hawthorne Heights is a band from Ohio whose genre is questionable. I am in no way an emo or a goth or any of those types of people but I love this band. To all those pricks who hate on this band because they associate them with gays or pussies, go to HELL. I (and many others) listen to this band because of good lyrics and kick ass guitarists. Fucking losers who think they are better than everyone who listens to this band need to just shut up and let the people who listen to them enjoy them and let the people who don't be. Don't make someone feel bad to make yourself feel better. That makes you a jerkoff. Besides I don't come to your job and knock the broom out of your hand so don't tell me that you hate the band. Just hate them quietly. Pricks.
Hawthorne Heights describes real life for people with emotion.

Hawthorne Heights is a good band from Ohio. Their music is rock/emo/screamo. Not everyone agrees that they're good, but to some they are. You have to be interested in emo/screamo to like them. And they're not a band for all you fuckin little pussies who think their song "Ohio Is For Lovers" is the best song ever because part of the lyric is "So cut my wrists...".
Hawthorne Heights is a pretty good band.

A band that was a good band. Had some nice guitar riffs, some memorable lyrics, they had a talented guitarist/screamer(Casey Calvert).

unfortunately Casey Calvert died. After not showing up to a sound check with the rest of the band, he was found dead.

He was a good man and never did any drugs and was a vegetarian. It might be possible he died of an asthma attack, as he did use an inhaler.

All I know is you shouldn't call people emo fags for being sad about this. I mean thee is a difference in crying all the time about nothing and being sad that someone who affected your dies.

me: you are less then a human being.

One of my favourite bands. They're amazing live. Just because "Ohio is for Lovers" said something about cutting wrists doesn't mean this is what they're telling their fans to do. I met Hawthorne Heights, they're one of the nicest bands imaginable. JT and Casey are absolute sweethearts. The only reason you hate them is because you're seeing these little "teenys" saying that the favourite song is either "Ohio", "Niki FM", or "Saying Sorry". Yeah, these songs are good, but they're not the only ones on their CDs.
Zack: Hey, where were you last night?
Me: I saw Hawthorne Heights live.
Zack: Oh man. They're awesome.
Me: I know.

an amazinglyy talented band that are often underrated. the poser fans are the ones whose favorite song is ohio is for lovers just because theyy have a line that goes "so cut my wrists and black my eyes." there are also some dumbfucks who think that hawthorne heights suck. hawthorne heights is an amazing band with excellent lyrics. look them up before you judge them just because theyy are labeled "emo" when theyy reallyy aren't. they're just plain awesome.
Hawthorne Heights is a pretty kickass band from Ohio.
