Brand New is the most popular alternative band you've never heard of. They have 4 albums, which are either the greatest things ever or overrated generic crap. They are also the inspiration of countless unfunny "Brand New's brand new album" jokes.
Released in 2000, this album served the purpose of filling countless "Devil and God" reviews with paragraphs about their evolution. Usually described as a solid pop-punk record, Brand New are now ashamed of this album. However it gave them a key part of their current fanbase: emos who are unwilling to admit that they don't like Brand New anymore because it will make them look shallow. Subject matter on this album includes finishing this album, a number of girls that go to Europe or don't appreciate the Smiths (or Morrissey), masturbating to magazines, and basic multiplication.
"Deja Entendu" was the album that lifted Brand New from not-mainstrean to slightly less not-mainstream. They were featured on the soundtracks of two sports videogames with the single "The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows", which is either the best song ever or what turned you off Brand New. Regardless, the hockey/golf videogame demographic joined the emo demographic and the legitimate fan demographic, and Jesse Lacey began to hate himself. This would turn out to be a good/better/bad/worse thing for Brand New, because after that Brand New began to rule/not suck/suck/get even fucking worse ROFLMETALZ. Subject matter on this album includes sinking like a stone in the sea, and burning like a bridge for your body.
On the third day, God created "The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me", and he saw that it was good.
On the fourth day, God took a nap, snored, recorded it, and released it on September 22nd 2009.
