Yellowcard is my favorite band. I figure I'd put together a blog that consists of all of their lesser known/non-album songs. Some of these songs are my favorite out of their entire catalog. Hope you take to time to check 'em out
First up is the entire Underdog EP
It's one of the lesser known Yellowcard releases and it should not be ignored. It was released between One For the Kids and Ocean Avenue It has a sound more similar to OFTK but with some darker moods and maturity.
Choice tracks are
It doesn't seem to be on iTunes but you can listen to some samples on this amazon page HERE
It was released on Punk Goes Acoustic 2 and it has some of the most heartfelt and relateable lyrics Ryan has ever wrote. The lyrics combined with a beautiful violin line and acoustic playing makes this song one of my favorites.
The upcoming game Guitar Hero : Van Halen [ out on Dec. 22nd] has a Yellowcard song on the tracklist!
It's "The Takedown" from Paper Walls Which is one of the best Yellowcard songs around. Amazing guitar intro and an even better solo near the end.
Another awesome track: "Pain" by Jimmy Eat World

I'm currently listening to Yellowcard's album Lights and Sounds and I must say it really is some of their best work. Along with one of my favorite CDs. Should have been much bigger than it was. Not to mention the b-sides which are also excellent.
