    If there is already a Used thread excuse me, I didnt see it!
    Right now I am down right in love with The Used. No I am not some emo punk kid who listens to the just because they are the thing to listen to. I really am into their songs, and their lyrics, no matter what, I can pop in their CD and I cant help[ but smile or dance, sometimes both! Also I think Bert is just an awesome person. I never ever like to read articles or interviews on bands, I just cant sit that long. I have caught myself just being drawn into what Bert says. He's a man of words.

    ahahahahah!
    Scuse me I need to die laughing!
    Ok all better
    I was being a bitch in a American Idol community, and this one girl says "Dont mind her, she listens to The Used so that means she is just and angry person who smokes pot and hates the world. She wishes she were dead but is to chicken to do it, so she listens to the Used to make herself feel all better."

    If I listend to the Used to make myself better, I would be even worse off than I am now

    The Used are awsome! The only problem is that they are so popular, so everyone assumes your like yet another Emo follower if you listen to them.

    Bert is frikin awsome!

    The Used is a great band, one of my favorites. Bert has to be one of the coolest people in the world. In my opinoin the older cd is way better than the new one though.

    the Used is pretty cool... i saw them at Warped Tour back in '03.. Bert gaffled a disposable camera from someone in the crowd, took a few pics of himself and his band mates, took a picture of the the entire crowd giving him the middle finger then tossed it back to the kid.. those would be some fun pictures to have..


    despite the fact that i work in a place where i have tons of access to all the nonsensical crap you can read/hear/learn about a band.. i just have never had the time pay attention to anything bert's Really said outside of the lyrics.. what with my time-consuming NIN obsession... but i can say he's pretty hot...

    I found the chorus to "Box Of Sharp Objects" or whatever that song it kinda catchy. Other than that, I really don't like them

    The Used really ain't my kinda thing, not at all a fan of emo. More of a Ska man which is about as far from emo as you can get. lol

    i'm a fan of the used, but only in terms of their first album. their second album is way to emo for me. not as much edge as the first one. box full of sharp objects is by far their best song was well.

    I listened to In Love and Death, and only a couple choice songs really did anything for me. Their first CD pwns in comparison, and LP, I'd have to argue that Pieces Mended beats out Box... by a little bit.

    For an emo band, good instrumentals. Def. good writing.

    Noooooo singing ability though. None.

    VPM (voicecracks per minute) rating rivaling that of NFG. Who should die.

    In conclusion, I like them. Mostly for writing and catchiness. By no means amazing, though...

    i dont dig the Used too much. I used to when i was trying to date this one chick, so i acted like I liked em a bunch so i could go out with her...but then i started listening to a bunch of their stuff and it wasnt quite my cup of tea. They're a little over played.

    When i look at the band and its followers, they remind me of a Emo/non grundge version of Nirvana. People like them just cuz they think its cool to like em.

    Many bands have that same aspect. It's not like it's uncommon.
