Doesn't it suck when emo post-punk nostalgia slaps you in the face and reminds you that (a) you're getting old and (b) have only accomplished about 12 percent of what you said you would by now?
After reuniting on last year's self-titled record, original members of Taking Back Sunday are on a tour commemorating the 10th anniversary of Tell All Your Friends, a record wildly popular not only amongst the angsty-teen demographic, but across the general board, really. "The record is just so important to us," TBS bassist Shaun Cooper recently told The Columbian. "We wouldn't be here without it. We can't believe that 10 years ago, we put out this record." Neither can we.
"Cute Without the E" was our ring-back tone until last week when we switched cell phone carriers. And a shoddy bootleg live recording of an old Taking Back Sunday concert was the last file we downloaded on LimeWire.
Seriously, where'd the past decade go?
