When I first heard Ocean Avenue, I kind of liked it, then I thought it was super annoying and hence I didn't really give Yellowcard the time of day.
2008 rolled around and I was dating someone who loved Yellowcard so I decided to give them another listen and fell in love. Their album Paper Walls was a life changer for me.
I broke up with the guy that I was dating (or rather he broke up with me but that's a minor technicality) and Yellowcard got me through it (or made me more depressed). Can't really remember anymore.
I shed many a tear to these songs. Regardless, I love Yellowcard. They are seriously underrated.
I will be going to see them in concert on Oct 13 and you should come with.
