    JohnTMcNeill - Loser was wrote about one of Brad's childhood friends who was addicted to cocaine. So it has nothing to do with suicide as you seem to be suggesting

    This album has aged phenomenally well, and it STILL rocks.

    "lyrics are too deep and unexplained"? Seriously? Life is tough, we can't (and shouldn't) protect everyone from themselves. The lyrics aren't particularly difficult to understand, so I don't know what kind of explanation you're suggesting. Maybe we should just put notes on everything for people saying everything will be OK and not to lose hope or worse, you know, just in case.

    It all went absolutely downhill from here - but then again, how do you match one of the best alternative albums of the last ten years?
