It's "Skee-bah." That's how Dan pronounced it at their concert, and I'm pretty sure he knows how to say it.

Okay I get it, It's "Skee-bah". Oh and about that satanist thing... yeah.
But why be a satanist when you can be a satinist. It feels so much better.

They both compliment each other perfectly in Alkaline Trio.

But Matt's side projects are soooo good.
Agreed. Danny's side project is excellent as well.

^^^ thats actually really true

even though their old stuff is stil amazinggg

lines like 'i'd love to rub your back' in Nose Over Tail would just be laughed at now
Blah.
#51
Yeah, the lyrics were a little cliche. Except for Trouble Breathing. That's still amazing lyric-wise.

Plus Nose Over Tail...all the lines before "You're saving me."

I don't think they were ALL cliche. Cringe, Southern Rock, and, as you said, Trouble Breathing are all really good IMO. Also, I've always loved Sundials and For Your Lungs Only. I think Dan's earlier songs (except Maybe I'll Catch Fire) were really cliche though.

Wow, i especially like the lyrics to "As You Were" :

"...Rotten like a 3 week half full glass of breast milk drunken off my ass...."

Like...what?!

-stepco


Yeah, but its such an awesome song. I love Dan's backing vocals when Matt sings "Put down like a prostitute in court.." And the little bass riff at the end is really cool.

I love Dan's vocals for sure, and my favorite songs tend to be sung/written by Dan, but I just love the overall feel of Matt's songs.

That's awesome, but I like the bass line in Goodbye Forever best.
#58
San Fransisco is ****ing great, and Sundials is an absolutely amazing song. Probably my second favorite. Best Alkaline Trio bass line? Goodbye Forever...pretty much everything on Selft-Titled.

I don't think everything on that album is awesome. I think Goddamnit has the best bass lines.

I love the guitar intro on Queen of Pain and Hell Yes.
#60
Mhm...Goddammit definately has amazing bass lines. Dan is really talented. Not only because he plays well, but because he's also very creative.

Mr. Chainsaw is a good song, but the lyrics are way too shallow to ever make it one of their greatest. They just rhyme, and although the rhyming is good, it doesn't get into anything great.

I could never pick a Favorite Album. It's just not possible for me.

The one thing I always notice about Maybe I'll Catch Fire is that I think it's my favorite Album for Dan's songs...even though he technically only does 3 on it. 'You've Got So Far To Go' is my favorite on the album (let's not include radio in this...it's not fair to include a song that has caused so many orgasms), and 'She Took Him To The Lake' follows at a close second. The entire album is amazing, but I think Dan especially shines on it. Then again, so does Matt. They were both awesome.


And dear god stepco, I can understand if you're religious and you believe it to be a Mortal Sin to utter the lord's name in vain, but I'm not so sure he counts typing as the same thing.

Same here, although its probably Maybe I'll Catch Fire.

If he's that religious, why is he listening to Alkaline Trio?
#71
No, no, I actually consider myself to be a good Christian boy but the Alkaline Trio continues to be my favorite band. I like how they push the boundaries on it. I love all of their Satanic songs, even though I'm not personally a Satanist.

Goddamnit.

Anyway, neidnarb, I think that's definitely their worst rhyme from Mr. Chainsaw. The first time I heard it I was like "Oh no...."

And also the line "Why is it that you never said, I love you more than just a friend?" That sounded soooo damn cliche and, for lack of a better term, High-school. And I realize the song was about growing up, but still.

And stepco, what the hell is this quote about:

Quote by stepco12345
They have a couple songs that sound almost satanic.


*Ahem* Not 'almost satanic'. their satanic songs say it straight up.

If you like Satanic give a listen to:

Hell Yes - Basically Matt's rejection of God and acceptance of Satan. In case you didn't know, in the verses, every time he says 'you' he's refering to god. And of course the chorus..."Bless me dark father I have sinned....I've done it before and I'll do it again....because it keeps me warm and it makes you smile....you've been beneath me all the while....Hell Yes."

Back to Hell - Well...not much to say about this one. Matt said it was supposed to be the story of three hell demons that are sent to heaven, and then realize they liked hell more. "Send us back to hell...we've had our fill of heaven....give us back our sins....deadly one through seven."

Southern Rock - Even though rednecks across the nation have mistaken this to be a Garth Brooks song by name alone, this song sounds nothing like the famous country/rock singer/songwriter. Easy known to be satanic through the chorus alone: "And that'll be me some day...with stolen wings and evil ways....straight south with the keys to the pearly gates..."


Hmm...I'm almost sure I'm forgetting something here. The only songs that sound 'almost satanic' are some of Matt's from Maybe I'll Catch Fire. Lines like "And I will keep you warm in hell" may sound satanic, but the basic song is not rooted in satanism.

Stay on your toes little boy

Matt is a musical genius, but they compliment eachother so well. Few write and sing love songs like Dan Andriano, and they both can write such darkly catchy stuff. It's amazing. I'll go with their solo albums, so Matt wins.

Quote by stepco12345

Matt and Derek have memberships to the Church of Satan.
#74
^Yup. Although Matt doesn't take it seriously. Singing about Satan and joining the church of Satan is just his way of expressing his atheistic views.

I read an interview with him speaking in it once, and he said something like "You just paid $200 dollars, they gave you a card and you could say 'Hey, I'm in the church of Satan'. It's more of a shock thing."

So he doesn't take it so seriously. Not sure about Derek. Derek doesn't seem to talk about it quite as much, although I always thought he seemed to be a bit more serious about it.

I'm gonna get pwnt from saying this, but am I the only one who does not like Radio at all?


Yes. Yes you are.

Haha, yeah, i'd probably get suspended from my school if some of the authoritatum people heard some of their music. They have a couple songs that sound almost satanic. Plus they have just about sang about all the stuff NOT to do. Oh, yeah and i finally came to sense. I dont think i'll be damned for typing it. Which leads me to my next point...:
Goddamnit! Goddamnit! Goddamnit! That is all.


Good job! I assume you go to a Catholic school?

They are not really satanists are they?


Like Greenfinger said, Matt and Derek are boh memebers of the Church of Satan. Matt has said the Bible is a fairy tale.

Anyway, neidnarb, I think that's definitely their worst rhyme from Mr. Chainsaw. The first time I heard it I was like "Oh no...."


I find that line funny, because he's rhyming the whole time, then he throws in a line that's completely irrelevant to the song, as if he had run out of words that rhyme. I always found it ironic.
#76
Ironic, but it also seems ill-placed, as though it was just thrown in there because he literally couldn't think of another rhyme. Most of their other songs are so thought-out.

Exactly, that's what I find so ironic! And I rather enjoy irony...I still think its a great song. Not the best, of course, but good nonetheless.
#78
Can't believe nobody has brought it up yet, Dereks MySpace blog about the new album, plans for a late spring release. Seeing as his deadlines always seem to be a little off i'm going for a late Summer/early Autumn release.

I'm excited about this mainly because it means a tour! Seeing Matt with Heavens isn't the same, although I did meet him

Whatever direction they take with it i'm sure it will be great.

I just saw them in April and last October as well, so I'm not really dying to see them again, although I'll definitley be going to their next show in CT.
#80
Yeah, I got to meet Matt at a Cincinnati show last year. Or was it Cleavland? I always get the two mixes up. He seemed pretty cool.
