I take issue with Saves the Day for a number of reasons.
1) Had the misfortune of seeing them in concert a while back. Dudes could barely play their instruments, while the lead singer whined away on stage.
2) Nobody would have ever heard of this band if it weren't for the rise of mall-punk.
3) Their recorded stuff is what it is: mainstream emo in the form of Hawthorne Heights etc etc. It's essentially targeted at 13 year old girls.
