hahaha. just kidding. u2 is the best. I just wanted to get your attention so that you look in here


That being said, Something Corporate is a great band. They are the best writers of choruses. I hadn't listened to them in like a year and I popped in the CD and I still remembered every single word to every single chorus of "Leaving Through the Window". They have these beautifully simple piano solos, awesome guitar parts, and the lyrics seem so real. Best songs include Hurricane, 21 and Invincible, As You Sleep, I Want to Save You, Fall, I Woke Up in a Car, Punk Rock Princess, You're Gone, Me and the Moon, Space, Forget December, and Watch the Sky.

They are my second favorite band under u2. I think everyone should check them out, especially the songs I mentioned.

I won tickets and saw them last year. It was thoroughly enjoyable.

They're not bad at all. Not the greatest, but better than most of the shit that comes out. Andrew is a phenomenal pianist.

Yeah, Forget December is a lot better than Punk Rock Princess. The piano solo is cool.

I can only listen to Konstantine if I'm in a very patient mood. haha....(It's a 9+ minute song with no real chorus)

these guys are great if you love cookie-cutter, whiney pop-punky emo stuff.

i prefer cookie-cutter, hard-hitting street punk, but that's just me. i think these guys suck.
