Pick an album and throw out your favorite lyrics.
Favorite lyrics: Entire album
New Junk. Album that got me into them and god damn there are so many rippers on it
Apocalypse Now & Then has the best riffs and is chock full of attitude. This record is so much fun and so unlike anything else they or anyone ever did.
6 months ago I would've said New Junk, but Low Teens has become my favorite. Favorite song of theirs is "Map Change" as well.
The glory I had witnessed was just a sleight of hand.
These hearts cannot be salvaged, these bones cannot withstand.
I have either been forgotten or I was never seen.
Now I'm in the negative space between.
Awesome seeing the votes all over the place already.
This is one of the few bands you could argue almost every album as their best and I wouldn’t even disagree.
The Big Dirty is what got me into them. It's what I still love the most. I love the whole vibe to the album, it's so distinct and perfect.
Favorite lyrics is tough but the opening of No Son of Mine is probably my favorite thing to blast in the car.
All I thought I knew was always wrong.
I threw out the map and let go of the reigns.
Led by a stranger, into the strange.
The answer is that there's no answer at all.
Everything's dead, until it's alive.
Man will exist, and then he will die.
JUST TAKE THE RIDE.
I love Low Teens of course but I am surprised it's in the lead. Could we argue recency bias on that?
Too damn hard, but I voted for Low Teens.
Very close between Low Teens and Ex Lives for me but Low Teens wins
Low Teens, and it's not even close for me.
I can't even pick a single set of lyrics on that record. There are so many that have gotten me through the last couple of months, it's insane.
Absolutely love this song.
Any of their last 7 albums could win and i wouldn’t be surprised. I went with Big Dirty since I think it has the best production and some of their best riffs. Instead of posting lyrics I’m posting a link to Cities and Years so you can smash your own face when that breakdown at the end comes in.
A bands 8th record winning this just speaks to how fucking amazing they are.
Picked Low Teens in the end. Almost went Hot Damn because it has so many great, old songs (shoutout to Off Broadway) but even with that album as old as it is and being my first ETID experience, I don’t know all the songs as well as I know FPU and LT. I was then debating between those two most recent ones, but realized LT has been out for 2 years and I still listen to it in full all the time. FPU was really terrific, but LT is next level.
“I can’t go back to what I was / Metallica without the drugs / A faith healer without a plant / There’s no hope for a hollow man”
From Parts Unknown for me. It's the one that I always come back to and rinse the everloving shit out of.
All I want is for everyone to go to hell / It's the last place I was seen before I lost myself / All I want is for everyone to come to hell / There we can be free and learn to love ourselves
I am going to need to give this a lot of thought. What a band!!!
I can’t think of many bands that would have their latest album ranked as a fan favorite 20 years into their career.
While I wouldn't call it their best, I think The Big Dirty will always be my favorite
Not from TBD, but some of my favorite lyrics are from Exometrium. Though it’s mainly his delivery that sells it
I could not identify the body
Us snakes evolve
It's what snakes do
I could not identify the body
Shed the fur and leave the womb
The riff here fucks so hard
Most every album of theirs is great. I chose Big Dirty because it's the album that got me into them and has the most attachment to me as such.
ETID vs. Frozen vs. Mamma Mia
