If you listen to the epicly-fail’d band named Taking Back Sunday because you find them "cool" or you think Adam Lazzara is the "bestest vocalist evah!", go find a shovel to hit yourself with for YOU too fail epicly.
THIS was Taking Back Sunday before Taking Back Sunday hopped into the "how cool are we with our overly convoluted lyrics and deafening vocal harmonies?" train.
isn’t "Betty" a woman’s name?
Ehermm yeah back on point:
Taking Back Sunday - Cute Without the ‘E’
The guitarist singing the other vocal parts is John Nolan. Basically, he is the heart and soul of the band. He gave the band the added oomph to propel them to great punk-rock heights… not to mention he was the one who wrote most of the songs in their debut album Tell All Your Friends.
You might be wondering how come I’m talking about Taking Back Sunday while Straylight Run is nowhere in sight?
Check this out:
Taking Back Sunday - This Photograph is Proof
If you’re feeling a little bit of bitterness in your tongue from holding back vomit, don’t worry. You’re not alone. Oh and you might also notice that John Nolan isn’t there anymore. Oh and I won’t mind if you find the Chuck Norris rip-off trying to "fill" the pretty big shoes of John Nolan a bit… BLAND.
How come good ol’ Nolan ain’t here?
Well, here’s the 411:
Adam, the vocalist, at the time was in a relationship with Michelle Nolan, John’s sister. However, like all male pigs, he cheated on her. Naturally, John got white-hot mad, he threw a guitar at Adam and quit the band.
So he, along with TBS’ bassist, AND Michelle formed Straylight Run:
Straylight Run - Existentialism on Prom Night
Isn’t sheeeee beautiful? umm the song I mean… but yeah, Michelle is DELECTABLE. Stupid, Adam.
Gotta love the brother-sister harmony
So I guess we can thank Adam Lazzara’s idiocy because if it wasn’t for him, we wouldn’t be graced with Straylight Run’s presence.
I’d still prefer the old Taking Back Sunday.
