I haven't even listened to this song/band, but WCAR are one of the most generic bands in this genre themselves.
Yeah sort of, especially now. To my knowledge when that song/album came out they were one of the few metalcore/post-hardcore/whatevercore that incorporated symphonic elements in the way they did with the clean vocals and what not.
depends on how cute they are... if they're cute and stylish enough they'll do great! musically, its a weaker version of American Me... who is very underrated in my opinion. still not the worst this genre has to offer but not for me.
