    As many of you out there know, Taking Back Sunday is a great band. I have known about them for a while, but I didn't actually buy their cd until earlier this summer during Warped Tour.

    The question I have for you guys is: What made them pick "Taking Back Sunday" as their name?

    I haven't probed very hard into the matter, but brief bio's give no such explanation. Wouldn't such a mysterious title turn away some church go'ers for fear they are listening to something satanic? (Even though most of their songs are about love and what not.)

    Their new album is catchy (albeit whiney) as hell, and not that great. Their first one is horrible. Screamo is so last summer.

    I didn's ask if you liked Taking Back Sunday, I asked where their name came from.

    i think their name came from lyrics or a song title of a band they liked, not sure which though.

    BW: Did the name Taking back Sunday really come from a Smith’s song?
    S: No!

    BW: No?
    S: No that’s a load of shit, we don’t really know were it came from. So that’s why we came up with that little story. I think there might have been a band that used to play shows on Long Island who had a song called “Taking Back Sunday.” I think that might be were it came from because when I joined the band that is one of the first questions I asked them, “where did this name come from?” and no one knew.

    BW: (laughing) Not from a Smith’s song?
    S: Definitely there is not a Smith’s B-side. You’ll have a really hard time finding it because it doesn’t exist.

    BW: We should send people on a hunt for it. Are you fans of The Smith’s?
    S: I am not but John is a very big Smiths fan, The Smiths and Morrissey

    TBS is far from emo
    learn what the hell it means and stop whining
     
  13. Since when did Taking Back Sunday become "emo"? Did I miss that day in school where the principal announced that over the PA system?

    I didn't like it at first (had it for a few weeks now) but after a few listens it grew on me and I like pretty much every song. It's still no Tell All Your Friends though.
