Obviously everyone ate these guys up-They sound the same as their old favorite bands (which were all crap, by the way) and their whiny lyrics which attempted to be dirty attracted pubescent teenagers around the country. Their crappy hit song "I write sins not tragedies" has such edgy lyrics (like the use of the word 'whore', haha!) and amazing talent that it stayed on MTV's rock song list and whatever other godawful hit list for weeks and weeks, thus proving that if you can sell yourself like a prostitute you can make it big, even if you're an awful band.
Me: Go watch Citizen Kane if you like tophats so much, at least it won't make you want to cut out your ears.
John (Aghast): Yeah, I saw you trample that old lady on the news.
Stephanie:"I know, it's gonna be awesome!"
