This band writes rock n roll songs in 2013. That's what you guys don't like about it. These guys are timeless. Also, This War Is Ours was damn near perfect.
And my favorite band is Motion City Soundtrack.
This is Rock and Roll to you? Go listen to the Gaslight Anthem dude, this shit is NOT rock and roll. This is an aging scenecore band that's trying to break into a more mainstream market because they know that three years, they're gonna be too old for any of their fifteen year old fans to give a shit about them. Hence their more marketable sound.
And please don't use "timeless" to describe these guys. The Beatles are timeless, Queen is timeless, Jeff Buckley is timeless... Escape the Fate has done nothing to contribute to or further their genre (thank god) and are still trying to get by on a sound that was big in 2004. I fail to see what lasting impact they've made that will brand them as "timeless."
