One time I told a girl I was in an emo band...
...because I was embarrased that the band I was in only played Metallica covers and the guitarists played ESP's. That unfortunate claim, however, does not detract from the fact that I have been in love with that Fall Out Boy song "Sugar, We're Going Down" for about 3 weeks now. Now, this isn't really the emo that I grew up with and once pretended I was. That was like Rainer Maria and Sunny Day Real Estate. That was freaking awesome.
This is Motley Crue II.
But what a great chorus. I don't really know what he's singing, and he sounds like a tard when he sings "Downtown," but that melody. Brilliant. It almost makes me want to buy the entire album, but there's no way they can surpass that song. I don't want to ruin their image in my mind. Basically, they are the pop-emo Gods of 2005. When I hear that song, I smile. I don't even know the lyrics, and I've listened to it about 50 times. They don't matter. They're probably about a girl. Whoopdedoo. It makes me want to hold my fist in the air and wear tighter jeans, all so that I can fully appreciate the songs awesomeness. I think I'll go do cartwheels now.
