“Understanding in a Car Crash” Emo Gets Old, We all Get Old

Thursday released a great track back in 2001 called “Understanding in a Car Crash.” At the time, I dug it, but felt it reflected too much of the whiny ass emo sound that unnerved me. Now I look back on tracks like this as brilliant songs compared to today. Why? Because today’s rock music tends to be a pile of waste. I was fascinated by the notion that Wolves at the Gate covered “Understanding in a Car Crash” on their recent “Back to School EP.” Really? Am I getting that old, that Thursday from New Jersey is being honored for the new generation. When did Thursday become the old generation. Ah, screw it. I think labeling rock music with tags like emo is stupid. This song is awesome. Both versions are awesome.
