The revenue generated on Record Store Day weekend pays 5 months worth of rent at my local shop I frequent. For that I am grateful. For every questionable reissue released on RSD there's always something cool released too, eg White Stripes Get Behind Me Satan, etc.

The reissues everyone was clamoring for, though, were The Decemberists, The White Stripes, and Brand New. I don't think that any of those three were RSD exclusives, just first day of release.

Still, if people get caught up in the excitement and drop $25 on a reissue that they normally wouldn't, it's good for the record shops. I've certainly gotten caught up in the hype in the past, but now try to limit myself to things that are truly RSD exclusives.

Now don't get me wrong, if they reissued Zooropa on purple and yellow vinyl, I would be all over it.

Is the Decemberists album getting a broader release? I know Brand New is, and people are still going batshit trying to get pre-orders from online retailers (about 2500 already sold through Triple Crown, Banquet and BN web store).

Is this going to be one of those times where I go "weird, I didn't know anyone cared about Brand New," and I find out it's an entirely different band by the same name? Or are we still talking about that shitty emo band

I guess I must have looked at the list wrong. I could have sworn The Decemberists was in the RSD First Release section, but it was indeed an RSD Exclusive.

More like emo numetal rap-rock, but I think you are thinking of the right band. You know, if you graduated high school in 2003, you are turning 30 and it's time for a little nostalgia.

The fact that Citizen Dick sold more than U2 gives me joy.

I guess U2 don't fare that well among vinyl-collecting hipsters!

No hitz!

I think you might be categorising emo too narrowly. Their first album was close to that, but by the third album they were a proper rock band. And in terms of lyricism and instrumentation, very few bands like them did it better.

As much as I dislike Taking Back Sunday, even they did that nonsense better than Brand New.

Pass me some of what you're smoking. Taking Back Sunday were rubbish. The whiney, voice, cut-yourself lyrics. Just, no. No.

That's my point. They were horrible, yet Brand New managed to be worse.

I think you may be judging them on a first album that threatened to go down that path. If you choose to continue to do that without listening further, that is fine, it is your prerogative. Digging deeper though may reveal the answer to your initial cocern.

Regardless, they are not an emo band. They may have been, or at least almost been in their early days, but definitely not by the third album.

Pretty sure I heard some quasi acoustic, low key boring ass songs off stuff other than the first album. They used to come up on pandora all the time when I worked with this kid who listened to that stuff. Apparently when you type in polar bear club on pandora, you get brand new like every 6th song.
