This is pretty amusing…
“…thanks to the high-pitched single, “A Favor House Atlantic”. More touring ensued, touring with Thursday, Thrice, AFI, and some band that I would only know about thanks to Wikipedia. Eventually, Colombia records signed a contract with them too, making Coheed release two albums on Equal Vision and Colombia. Around this time, Claudio got snake bites and chugged a bottle of Jack Daniels, years before Ke$ha got the balls to brush her teeth with it. Pussy.”
“A prog rock band with a five album story line? Holy shit!”
“Shabutie changed when they brought Travis Stever back from the dead or something, and when their awesome drummer, Nate Kelley, left in the middle of a show. Shellshocked from this new change of events, Shabutie slowly fizzled out, and the band formally known as Shabutie (is that phrase copyrighted by Prince?) began to evolve into a new band.
Cue the Pokemon evolution music. DUN DUN DUN DAAAAA NUN…”
“Many sources on Wikipedia cite Coheed and Cambria as “emo”, but calling them emo is like calling Nickelback good; no one can take it seriously when you say it. However, many important people (like myself and Equal Vision Records) call Coheed Progressive Rock, with influences of heavy metal, punk rock, pop, funk, and post-hardcore. Entertainment Weekly even called them new-prog, which I guess is way better than emo. “
So we did some digging in our poll software and discovered that some rather overzealous Coheed fans (and, to a lesser extent, some MCR ones too) had employed bots to juice up the polling numbers — seriously, when one IP address votes 4,576 times for Coheed and Cambria, you know something’s amiss. So we plowed through the results, removed any and all suspicious IP addresses, and Coheed was still winning — by a lot.”
Oh, happy day! ^o^
I don’t hate My Chemical Romance or anything, but it would’ve been kind of lame if they won. They haven’t put anything out since 2006, plus it wouldn’t have been a surprise if they won. :/
Also, C&C is awesome.
“Wake Up” by Coheed and Cambria
from Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness (2005)
I’ll do anything for you,
kill anyone for you.
So leave yourself intact,
‘Cause I will be coming back.
In a phrase to cut these lips, I love you.
The morning will come
In the press of every kiss, with your head upon my chest
where I will annoy you
with every waking breath
decide to wake up.

Nevermind all the lines. I’m coming and there is no better part of me, you’ll see, the darkest light, the blind I’ll be. I accept that you chose to forget the horrid thing you made of me, my dear. It is all that it is, so…
The laughing feels so good, but the world misunderstood all I said. There was no joke in what I meant. Someone please come shelter me from all that I am, and never again will I believe the same old story. Someone please come shelter me…
I’ve given up on all I loved for an honest moment of clarity, well I need to feel alright, please let me breathe, in a life I made out of nothing to cleanse this useless identity. Will you hear all the word in its wisest way? Will the other half be as good? Well if only I misunderstood. I wait on this judgment I’ve been reigned. Someone please come shelter me…
Nothing, nothing. There’s no understanding in miracles when the worst, it always comes true. Ha-ha, I am the nothing you have saved. Someone please come shelter me…
NEW C&C!!!1 \(^o^)/
