I had absolutely no idea this band was still around. Are they still popular?
yeah, they are still around and they are still popular, i dont think as many people love them as much as they did in the self titled/in love and death era but with each new album they attact new fans and the popularity heats up around then... with all bands though most people tend to just like singles or be a fan of just 1 or 2 albums by a band, the people that say the used are not good anymore are not fans of the band, they are what i call an 'album fan' ...being a fan or just an album or 2 and not the band themselves...the thing with the used is that they are so unique and different from all the bands around today that a lot of people just cant handle whats not part of the statistical music norm so they scare off a lot of people that way, but they are considered one of the greatest rock bands of all time and the only "true" rock band of modern times and being breath takingly amazing live...11+ years and still rocking......note, they are my favorite band so my statement may contain slight biasism
Love this band. The DVD that came with their b-sides CD Maybe Memories was the best music DVD ever. So glad I came across that back in the day.
that dvd is cool, for sure. a lot of their home videos on that dvd were places that i recognized since they're from my town. a few of my friends are in the dvd too. like, the super old clip of the guy licking Branden's face, that is my good friend Matt. he used to be in a band with Jeph and Branden before The Used started (Strange Itch.) i see their old CD from time to time at used record stores around here. Jeph sung in that band, and they suckkkked haha. also, the clip of Bert doing a back flip, my friend Chris is there holding a drink next to him. blah blah blah...
ive been waiting for tem to releease to track list, ive been searching for it for the past 2 wekks now. good to see them release it...based on those beautiful song names, this is another to be another mind blowing amaing great album by the greatst band of all time! :)
really looking forward to this. always be a band i support. they always have at least a solid 5 or 6 songs on an album. they still haven't gotten close to matchin in love and death, that album was all killer.
