THIS IS WAR

This is War as well as Kings and Queens are two singles that I have been repeatidly listening to! They are both intense and crazy songs, which I love! 30 Seconds to Mars was formed in Las Angeles, California and includes actor, guitarist, songwriter and lead singer, Jared Leto. Shannon Leto on drums and Tomo Milicevic on lead guitar and keyboards. Three albums have been released; 30 Seconds to Mars, A Beautiful Lie, and This is War(featuring song Kings and Queens).

Keane is actually Piano Rock and formed in 1995. The group consists of composer, bassist, and pianist Tim Rice-Oxley, lead vocalist Tom Chaplin and drummer Richard Hughes. “Somewhere Only We Know” became number three on the UK Singles Chart in 2004. In late October 2006, Rice-Oxley collaborated with Gwen Stefani as a co-writer of the song “Early Winter”, released later in 2007, and “The Sweet Escape, as well as two more tracks.

Had Enough-

Breaking Benjamin is a band I discovered  a few years ago and the first song I heard of their’s was Forget It, another popular song. This band is from Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania and includes Benjamin Burnley, Aaron Fink, Mark Klepaski, and Chad Szeliga.

Formed in 1998, the band came up with their name from an incident when Burnley was singing a Nirvana song during an open mic night. He kicked the microphone stand over, breaking it. The person who owned the microphone walked onto the stage and said, “I’d like to thank Benjamin for breaking my fucking microphone.” In 1999 the band changed its name to “Plan 9” then in late 2001, after many changes, the band changedback to their previous name “Breaking Benjamin”  According to the band, the Breaking Benjamin logo is a variation of the Celtic knot, with four interlocking “B”s.

Senses Fail

The band Senses Fail was formed in ’03 when Buddy Nielsen began recruiting band members through and ad on the internet in 2002. Their musical influences include Punk and Hardcore with a mix of emotion, spirituality and literature. Lead singer Nielsen explains, “In Buddhism, they believe that being alive is hell, and the only way to reach Nirvana is to ultimately have no attachments to anything. So, people go out and live in the middle of the woods and they don’t eat and don’t drink. They just meditate because they’ve reached such a high level where they’re not attached to love, relationships or anything. And if you want to reach the highest level of being and see God, you have to have all your senses fail.”

Is this where the interstate ends?
In coastal towns like this
Waiting for my world to cave under
We seem to invent ourselves (we seem to invent ourselves)
In the places left unknown
If hope could only find me out

Is this the end of everything we’ve known? (We’ve known)
This is the end of everything I am

Is anybody out there?
Hello! Hello!
Broken hearts like promises are left for lesser knowns
Is anybody out there?
Alone! Alone!
Cause the coldest winters thrive

Depression is the unholy ghost
In the coastal towns of ahead
Though I know a thousand names
I see my only friend
I’ve got the gun
All I need is ten cents for the bullet
I feel helpless, sleeping at best, waiting for your return
Are you ever coming home?

Is anybody out there?
Hello! Hello!
Broken hearts like promises are left for lesser knowns
Is anybody out there?
Alone! Alone!
Cause the coldest winters thrive on broken homes
Broken homes

Does anybody (Does anybody)
Do they ever listen? (Do they ever listen?)
Does anybody (Does anybody)
Care at all?!
Do they care at all?
Do they care at all?
Do they care at all?
Do you care at all? Do you care at all?!

Is this the end of everything we’ve known? (We’ve known)
This is the end of everything I am

Is anybody out there?
Hello! Hello!
Broken hearts like promises are left for lesser knowns
Is anybody out there?
Alone! Alone!
Cause the coldest winters thrive on broken homes
Is anybody out there?
Hello! Hello!
Broken hearts like promises are left for lesser knowns
Is anybody out there?
Alone! Alone!
From a lesser known I’m here
and there’s hope, there’s hope
