Biography

The Used is an American band from Orem, Utah. Their sound has been classified under many sub-genres of rock. They signed with Reprise Records in late 2001 and rose to fame in June 2002 after releasing their debut self-titled album, The Used. Soon after a CD/DVD package named “Maybe Memories” was released containing unheard demos and a “behind the scenes” story of the band/band’s past. They followed up with their second album, In Love and Death, in September 2004 and their third album, Lies For The Liars, in May 2007. An EP, Shallow Believer, was released in February 2008 that featured most of the band’s B-sides to date. They spent the entire year of 2008 working on their fourth studio album, Artwork, which was released September 1st, 2009. The band has achieved both Gold and Platinum statuses in over 6 countries worldwide. Speaking with Songfacts
in a 2012 interview, The Used bassist Jeph Howard said that “A Box Full of Sharp Objects” is probably his favorite song by the band.

A few years ago, while preparing to send the album art for b-side collection Shallow Believer to his record label, Bert McCracken scrawled the word “Artwork” across its cover in silver ink. The sentiment, which, to Bert and his bandmates in The Used, resonated with both extreme simplicity and indescribable complexity, said everything without really having to say anything. Now, the Utah band has titled their fourth full-length album with that very word: Artwork.

    LOL @ all this anti-capitalist freshman liberal studies hogwash. Totally adorable. I guess anthemic choruses about raging against the machine with a couple "WHOA OA OAAAA"s sprinkled in is considered progress. Sounds more like a complete sell-out regression claptrap to me. This band used to have a great sugar-coated filth thing going on, now it's literally a joke.

    @TristeMemoire The Used need more experiment, but i appreciate their hard work, really, i feel it. Even they tried to bring back the old style that was not really worked well. Still, all we need is a surprise. btw, HEIL THE USED!!

    - Imaginary Enemy Album - Cry, published sooner than the album, and it made an impact to me, that wow the new album must be as good as the presentative single(read: Cry). But after i heard the album, i didnt get a big impact, it just ok. But some songs is good, i like the "oouuuoo" part at some songs, the lyric still good as fck. And "A Song To Stifle Imperial Progression (A Work In Progress)" is awesome as fck!! Lot of fun in it. Well, all i want is a surprise!! That's all

    @dr0mztm: Or, perhaps, they just don't care for the newer stuff. I'm personally digging the new album so far, and I really liked The Ocean of the Sky, but I thought Artwork and Vulnerable were terrible. These things sometimes happen when bands experiment with different sounds.

    "Used Demo > S-T > In Love and Death = epic. Lies for the Liars is just ok. Others = no bueno.", in other words, "look at me, I'm a hipster"
