Have you guys ever written / recorded a song and then regretted it? If yes, which and why?

The recent drama with Chad Gilbert and Max Bemis made me think about this. I wonder how many bands wish that they could take certain songs back. I'm not implying anything about the drama that's going on, but yeah.

I have a serious question - what do you guys think about the scene now? It's certainly way different than it used to be when This Day & Age were around. It's almost as if new good bands are hard to come by.

Do you feel like the quality of music has dropped?

:) i think any person that plays any kind of music could write a book on their opinion on this topic. i absolutely think the quality of music has dropped. now its so much more than what you hear. its what you look like, who you're friends with, the label you're on, who your fans are, what movie or show your music is in, alll that stuff. i mean, look at the grammys. it is what it is..i watched a little and whatever, i somewhat understand the entertainment value, and not everyone in the world is a musician...but sometimes it does get to a ridiculous point. i rolled my eyes as far back as i possibly could when they showed lady gaga wearing whatever it was she was wearing. some of the lip syncing was astonishing. again, i'm not hating anything and everybody has an opinion. i just think its hilarious sometimes when people that don't know much about music are making millions of dollars by making music and some people that make beautiful music are ignored. again, it is what it is. i'd never expect everybody to like pat metheny because he is a musical genius. it comes down to taste as well. i have so much more to say but like i said, so does everybody else i'm sure. who am i really.

i started reading the post about max, but it was way too long.. but, to answer the question, i haven't... no tdaa song or first joke song has been malicious or slandering in anyway and each song meant something to us at the time

i've personally never really regretted anything. youhave to remember who you were and what you were thinking when you wrote something. of course, sometimes you cringe at the skill level with which you wrote. but as long as you're better, full speed ahead.

That's what really depresses me. I mean, in a way, bands from this scene have always had a certain image, but that's not what fans liked about them. When I look at newer pop punk / screamo / hardcore bands, it feel as though they rely more on their image.

so true, lueda.. music has become so secondary for a lot of these new bands

Yeah. In Louisville, if you are wanting to go to any surrounding city, you are going to see some farms and cornfields. Most people here find it boring but I tend to have certain emotions get triggered too.
