Biography

The Used emerged flipping two middle fingers at what passed for the rock n’ roll status quo while snatching platinum, gold and silver certifications in North America, Europe and Australia and kicking open the doors of MTV and the Top 10.

Now freed of the shackles of corporate bureaucracy and even the limitations of geography (half the band now lives abroad), The Used is creating ... Read more in Amazon's The Used Store

Editorial Reviews

You want intensity? Check out The Used on the Warped and OzzFest tours, and on the band's self-titled debut album. They've given everything to music - relationships, day jobs, everything. They've overcome homelessness, substance abuse and closed-minded environs. Sure they've frightened club owners in their native Utah, what with all the blood and puke as singer Bert McCracken prowls the stage singing and screaming as if jockeying for an aneurysm. But you said you wanted intensity. So now you got it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Rock Albums of the Year, Easily. December 5, 2002
By ross
Format:Audio CD
Wow, I cannot say enough about how amazing this band is. Not only is The Used's debut album THE best "screamo"/punk album to come out this year, it is one of the best albums to come out this year, period. The vocals & lyrics are amazing. Bert can scream better than anyone I've heard, but his singing voice is equally as impressive, and he can alternate between the two effortlessly. His words have so much substance and emotion behind them too, which seems especially rare in so much of today's music. Quinn's guitar work is as versatile as Bert's singing, with powerful, driving riffs and beutifully melodic phrases (also a rarity in today's heavier music). A couple of the songs also have orchestral arrangements under the guitars which make the music even more dynamic. The underlying rhythm section with Jeph on bass and Branden on drums is a driving force throughout the entire album as well. Every song is so well crafted, I couldn't pick any in particular as my favorite. There honestly isn't a weak track on here, but I think the highlights are probably "Poetic Tragedy", "Noise & Kisses", and "On My Own". I could go on forever, but I'll sum it up by saying that the last time I was this impressed by an album was when I first heard "Around the Fur" by the Deftones. (and that came out in 1997!) This album is a masterpiece, and I can't imagine anyone finding it as a disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST IVE HEARD IN YEARS August 9, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I am a big fan of the genre they call pop punk, with my favorite band being MxPx. But once I was infected with the likes of the Used, Finch and Glassjaw, I just could not stop listening! This CD not only has great tunes and awesome screaming, but its extremely powerful. Not one song is bad, and not one song is mediocre! Every song is awesome! Heres how I rate them, with 10 being the best, and 1 the worst(even though none of the songs come close to a 1).
1.Maybe Memories - A great opener with a Deftone vibe. I have heard this song is about the lead singer Bert McCracken's dark, drug filled past. 9/10
2.The Taste of Ink - Another great song, great lyrics and great tune. Not as much screaming and power as track one, but it has an infectious tune and vibe, with an awesome chorus. 10/10
3.Bulimic - A great song once again, what more can I say? The phrase "a great song" is becoming a cliche now. The chorus is great on this song...as a matter of fact everything is great. Once again the lyrics send a message. 9/10
4.Say Days Ago - Awesome song, but not as good as the others. Its got a great heavy opening vibe to it and a scream-along prechorus. 9/10
5.Poetic Tragedy - Powerful song with amazing lyrics. A lot softer than the other tracks on the CD, but its probably one of the best songs. The songs about a poet/singer whose career becomes tragedy due to substance abuse. Very powerful. 10/10
6.Buried Myself Alive - When I first heard this song, I was left speechless!!! The best song on the CD, undoubtedly! It is a very powerful song, mixed with awesome lyrics, and a very very good chorus! Completely amazing! 15/10 hehe
7.A Box Full of Sharp Objects - The first single of the CD, and a very good choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Used December 5, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The first song I heard before buying this CD was "Box Full of Sharp Objects", and let me tell you, that song alone blew me away. I generally don't buy CDs after hearing only one song. But, I made an exception for The Used. And that was a good thing.
First off, Bert's vocals are so freaking raw. His scream is high and powerful, his singing voice is melodic and beautiful...and his super-octave singing voice is incredible! How can a guy sing so high without...well, never mind.
Second, the album displays such a diversity in each song, it makes you wonder (and look forward to) what will happen next. From soft, heart-felt love songs to aggressive, beat-you-in-the-face songs to emotionally tormented songs, The Used keep you pumped up and satisfy your hunger for raw, talented new music.
NOTE: The bonus video for "Box Full of Sharp Objects" is also pretty cool, as is the clip of the band during recording, which displays a very amusing side to the band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Amazing November 9, 2003
By Brian
Format:Audio CD
The Used have developed a nearly flawless and perfect album. Every song from start to finish is awesome and full of emotion and energy. Though it seems odd to praise a lead singer whose main strength is a freightening scream, Bert McCraken takes listeners to a new height of musical emotion. The other band members blend together perfectly to make a flawless band. This CD is perhaps the greatest and most fun CD ever.
Maybe Memories- Very up tempo song, Bert quickly shows off his singing abilities and vocal range. The band also displays its unique rock music sound. 9/10
The Taste of Ink- A radio friendly hit. The song is very appealing to the ears and never seems to grow old. The dualing vocals by Bert are superb and the music flows very nicely. 10/10
Bulimic- The song is unbeleiveable. Nice opening guitar and the song suddenly takes off with a high pace. The chourus is awesome and the progressions of the song turn this into a very strong song. 10/10
Say Days Ago- This song takes off from the beginning with heavy drums and guitars. The vocals are amazing and the song has excellent feel to it. One of the heaviest songs on the album. 9.5/10
Poetic Tragedy- The band really shows its diversity and takes a different direction on this song. Very soothing and soft throughout the beginning of the song. The music creates an nice atmospshere and the lyrics and the vocals are perfect. Towards the end Bert takes over with his screaming and makes this song a masterpiece. 11/10
Buried Myself Alive- The number one single from this album. Everything about this song is perfect. The drums are awesome, the guitars sweet, and the singing flawless. The song has a rocking and uptempo pace to it. If you can't fall in love with this song, this music sytle is not for you.
