    Were you 1990?

    Speaking of Alter the Ending, Spotify UK doesn't have it and it annoys me no end every time I do a DC binge.

    The second verse is so pathetic. Basically leaning into the fact that he knows barely anyone cares anymore "There's still a kid somewhere that needs to hear this. Somebody cares, and somebody knows."

    Also this "inspiration message" is basically the same bullshit platitude that Bob suggests in Stranger Things which nearly gets the kid killed. Don't be like Bob. Don't listen to this song. (spoilers sorry)

    I'm choosing to believe they purposefully chose to be on the same label as Paramore

    “When I wrote ‘We Fight,’ I thought it was just about the music scene that I came up in — a place where people who’d never quite fit in anywhere felt they actually belonged,” Carrabba said in a statement. “When we began playing the song live on our summer tour, I realized that ‘We Fight’ held a much broader meaning. It’s a song for people who, in spite of their differences, can find common ground in their convictions and foster those into something bigger than themselves. That, to me, is something worth fighting for.”

    Dashboard Confessional stay true to their sound on new song 'We Fight'

    Carrabba spoke with Apple Music's Zane Lowe on Wednesday about the song's themes, which evolved with the times. "It's a weird thing when you write a song; you think you know what it’s about but you don’t until some months later sometimes," Carraba said. "So, I thought for sure it was just about how I found a place in the world, which was worth fighting for, which was the music scene that I come from. I wasn’t cool in school. I didn’t fit in. I found this music scene and it fostered this community and it fostered the people in it. … Everybody was equal and we were equally protected but we were equally encouraged to do something that challenged the status quo.

    "But then the political climate has changed in such a way that, almost days after writing that song, America started to feel really regressive somehow," he added. "And all these great strides we made during the last administration had been threatened to be undone and I realized that people have beliefs worth protecting, worth standing up for and I found a residence in that."

    I was really looking forward to new DC, but sadly I can’t say I enjoyed this song on first listen.

    But I’ll remain optimistic for the time being.
