Jepha Howard - Musical Style

Musical Style

The Used's music has been classified under many sub-genres of rock. Their musical style has been labeled as emo, screamo, post-hardcore, alternative rock, pop-punk, punk rock, hard rock, heavy metal and metalcore.

Band bassist Jeph Howard has said, "We just don't consider ourselves 'emo' or 'screamo' and we never have. We're a rock band that's all we've ever been."

For Artwork, McCracken described their genre as "gross pop". Allman described the albums style: "It's gonna be pretty raw. I think a lot of the stuff is very much more poetic and lyrical, and the sound is more retro and raw with less production".

On their fifth album Vulnerable, Bert McCracken stated that there is a lot of hip-hop influence, beats and drum and bass kind of stuff, but it’s also still a The Used record with lots of soft and heavy sounds, lot of brutal, sharp, bright sounds, and the tempos are anywhere from ultra-slow to super fast and heavy.

Famous quotes containing the words musical and/or style:

    There was something refreshingly and wildly musical to my ears in the very name of the white man’s canoe, reminding me of Charlevoix and Canadian Voyageurs. The batteau is a sort of mongrel between the canoe and the boat, a fur-trader’s boat.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    A church that can never have done with excommunicating Christ while it exists! Away with your broad and flat churches, and your narrow and tall churches! Take a step forward, and invent a new style of out-houses. Invent a salt that will save you, and defend our nostrils.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
