Rock music is not dead with The Used

In this time and age where Electronic Dance Music, or EDM for short, has been the popular genre to practically all listeners these days, there are still a few who remain loyal to listening to good old rock music.

Some may not be familiar with them, but American rock band The Used has been making music for 14 years already. In fact, their debut album “The Used” became a landmark album for sparking the popularity of the post-hardcore and scream genres.

Popular bands that fall under the post-hardcore and screamo genres? It’s Pierce the Veil and Sleeping with Sirens respectively, both which have visited the Philippines two years ago.

Comprising of band members, Bert McCracken, Quinn Allman, Jeph Howard, and Dan Whitesides, The Used has made six albums and two EPs, all being critically acclaimed by music critics.

To get you oriented with the musical style of The Used, here are a few of their popular songs you can get familiar with:
