  1. Has anyone else heard the "new" Jimmy Eat World "Pain" song?

    I kinda dig it.
     
  2. Yeah, I like it, too. They write good songs.

    They're a really cool band, in my opinion.
     
  4. if you're new to them, just buy their "bleed american" album (that title was removed after 9/11, so now it's nameless)

    great album. my band covers jimmy eat world... we play:
    -a praise chorus
    -the middle
    -get it faster
    all from the album i mentioned above. They're easy (exept for the solo-thing in the middle) and very cool to play.

    a problem is that they use dropped D tuning (D A D G), and the songs can't really be played correct without it, so my band have to play all JEW-songs together so we don't have to throw away too much time tuning.

    a little warning, though, is that you need two good vocalists on their songs. One will not do, especially not on "a praise chorus". But it sounds great if you make it work.
