A fucking amazing band that scream lyrics that actually mean something. The song "Nerdy" has a funny twist because its actually a love song, but its screamed.
Poison the Well is the best band I've ever heard.

Best hardcore band ever. Not a screamo, emo, punk, pop-punk, indie, ska, hard rock, or metal band. Real hardcore. Since they are so great, this word can be used as an adjective to describe anything that is that awesome.
