Their goal in calling themselves 'thursday' was to NOT be streotyped.
Poor guys, it ended up associating them with 'saves the day' (non-generic, but ver dis-similar) and 'taking back sunday' (sounds like everyone else, but was slightly better before john nolan left)
In any case, thursday is most definately 'post-hardcore.'
the lyrics are never repetative, like crap ass pop muisic, and rarely deal with the cliche girlfirend story (hence, not emo). But weather they are 'good' falls to opinion (i love 'em)
Guy2 "Yea, so did coheed and cambria"
Guy1 "No, I really mean it."
Guy2 "Oh... aren't you supposed to say that even if the concert sucks?"
Guy1 "Uh, I don't think so ."
Guy2 "Oh... then coheed and cambria sounded like willain hung from american idol"
Thursday is also best known as getting head...
Guy #2: Well lets just say I left a holocaust in her mouth
