im in a hardcore band and we wanna start writing. our main influences are the devil wears prada, underoath, as i lay dying, oh sleeper, and august burns red. we dont know if we should have verses, chorus's and stuff like that (like as i lay dying) or write straight thru the song w/o any of that stuff (kinda like the devil wears prada). which way would be best?

Break up; the world doesn't need another "Underoath" or "Devil Wears Prada."

Trust me, one day you're going to look back at the kind of music you were into and you will feel ashamed.

If you need help with lyrics/songwriting you might want to take it to the Songwriting & Lyrics forum. They're pretty good with that stuff.
