Grand Rapids MI, United States (2004 – present)

La Dispute, formed in 2004, is five close friends from Grand Rapids, Michigan with a firm passion for the concept of music and art as a medium for making new friends. As a result, La Dispute makes (or strives to make) music that is both artistically, technically, and emotionally engaging in hopes of establishing legitimate connections with any and all interested people, while encouraging dialogue between those people and themselves about things in life that truly matter and that truly last. La Dispute also carries a firm passion for the relevance of a live show, both for the bands involved and for the people in attendance, and will go to the grave believing that the environment created when strangers come together despite their differences to celebrate one important thing is invaluable and should not under any circumstances be taken for granted.
Their style combines elements of and in a very experimental way to something that can hardly be put into a single genre.

    I will admit that the guys in La Dispute are talented musicians. And I actually enjoy Jordan's vocal delivery. And despite the jokes that are constantly made, his lyrics are good. They paint a nice, vivid picture. Thet are wayyyy better post-hardcore bands, but la dispute make sometimes enjoyable and genuine music (I say "sometimes enjoyable" because they don't consistently wow me).

    Everyone's entitled to their opinions. I don't think you can objectively say they aren't the best band in the world.
