Enough with the hate. Bring the love. Or some blades.
Dashboards lyrics mean something. Alot of people can even relate to what Chris Carrabba is trying to say.
If you don't like them leave it at that, don't go shooting off about how there so emo and slit there wrist and shit. Everyone has there own say.
After the transformation, the lead singer had a revelation. He realized that his balls were the reason they weren't making any money. He had surgery to get them removed that way his voice was higher. After the removal, he experienced a strange side effect in which the recipient feels depressed all the time (probably cause he has no balls).
After writing some songs, the band needed some lyrics. The default backup lyrics writer had no balls, could he do it? Why yes, yes he did. Unfortunately, all he wrote about was his ex-girlfriends, failed attempts to cut his wrists, his bottle of zoloft, and his cool sneakers.
The band was an immediate hit, the lyrics hit the problems of every melodramatic, mildly retarded teenager of America. I mean, the music made the listeners have more confidence (Some guy with no balls makes alot of money, thats gotta raise someones confidence).
After they sold theirselves to the devil, they made a music video to put on MTV. The worst TV station ever created.
In conclusion, if you are looking for music that will make you want to slit your wrists, beat the shit out of your ex girlfriend, masturbate to kiddy porn, and cry all day, you've found it. Dashboard Confessional.
They have a book coming out soon, its called "How to produce shit and make money!". (Publisher: MTV)
SO maybe before you slag them off any more you should do your research.
A man who sings about his feelings is sexier than one who isn't intelligent enough to write them down and therefor disses guys who can.
