I've had it with everyone bashing dashboard confessional. They're an amazing band who talk about REAL human emotions and REAL feelings and just REAL-everything. So what if the guy sounds like he was raped by his uncle when he was 14? Maybe a lot of us have and we need to vent our pent-up and impotent rage over insufferably "acoustic" music. Or maybe some of us live such sheltered existences that we wish we were raped by our uncles (or manservants) and need an excuse to plunge into some spurious manic-depressive nonsense. And so what if some 35 year old living in his parents basement and driving his parents 1994 dodge stratus talks about the problems of dysfunctional, socially inept, intellectually (and testicularly) challenged 17 year olds? That doesn't mean he can't express his FEELINGS in public and make pity money.
Enough with the hate. Bring the love. Or some blades.
I love dashboard confessionals

An amazing emo band with amazing lyrics. Before you people go an bash their songs, because you've "earned" something about the so called emo stereotype, freakin' listen to the damn songs, mmkay? The lyrics are amazingly written, and you have no damn right what so ever to bash them.

a band that finally made it into the spotlight...
for all you dumbasses that think all bands, such as dashboard confessional, that make it are sell-outs, what the fuck do you think any band is trying to do? go belly-up and sing for you in free shows until they get huge beer guts and lose their voice from throat cancer from inhaling to much smoke?

Emo is short for emotional which means different feelings. Chris Carrabba writes about how he feel's. Alot of you are shooting off about how he writes about his life problems. Well isn't that what most all bands that write there own music do. Like ok Chris Carrabba writes about his ex girlfriends and stuff like that. And rock and metal bands write about there drug problems and there even there ex girlfriends and wifes and there sex and stuff. So what's really the difference..the way they play there instruments? Dashboard choose's to have a softer tone of music, if they wanted they could go a head and make there music heavey with electric guitar and alot of destortion..but they don't that's what makes them different they don't care if some people don't like how they do there music they play it how they feel it should be played.

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.
Dashboard Confessional relates to alot of teenagers in this generation.

Revolutionary band that decided that the best way to make music is to cut off their own testicles and write lyrics about problems that melodramatic teenagers have. At first, they wanted to play Goth music, paint their fingernails, and write in blogs. This doesn't make too much money so they moved on to downsizing to an entire new ensemble (with their parents money of course). Bought new acoustic guitars, a lighter drumset, haircuts, and new knifes to cut their wrists with.

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)
"Rashboard Confessional sucks."

A really good band. They may be considered "emo" but that doesn't mean they encourage people to self harm while listening to their songs. I believe they have a lyric that says "But I am cleaning up so well..."
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.
Those who can't, critisize. It's called Jealousy.
