    I saw a bunch of people were getting their five year trophies in the forum this week. Wow does time fly.

    Today is officially the fifth anniversary of Chorus. I’ve got no April Fool’s day shenanigans planned, but I did want to take a quick moment to thank everyone that reads this website on a daily basis. Whether you’ve been with us for one year, or almost 20, it means the world to me to be able to share a love for music with you.

    Damn. I remember learning about my favourite artists way back in high school on AbsolutePunk and still think of Chorus as the "new" site.

    As silly as it may sound, this site (and AP) have been fundamental in my life. Thank you for that.

    I’ve been on here and AP since 2007, when I was a junior in high school. As someone with no friends and not a lot of living family left, it’s made a huge influence on me.

    Be excellent to each other!

    5 years already?! Feels like yesterday. Amazing to think of all the big life events I've experienced in those 5 years and how Chorus has played an integral part in shaping the soundtrack to those events.

    Thanks Jason!

    AP in 2004, Chorus from day 1. It’s my second most visited webpage behind Defector and probably goes #1 half the week, especially when there’s a release I’m really stoked about.

    More than ever, community is essential - for belonging, for mental health, for joy in life. Learning about new bands every week and talking about obscure artists with folks around the country or world has filled the large hole not going to shows for over a year has done for me.

    Thank you, @Jason Tate. Like many others, the music I’ve found from this place has altered the way I view the world. That’s no small thing.

    Now everyone subscribe and keep this going another 5 years.
