The Used Tickets for Sale

The Used hail from Utah, where they fought personal hells of drug addiction and homelessness to rise above the crowd of alt metal-touched post-grunge bands. Using their experiences as inspiration, the band writes songs that often deal with these serious subjects with a refreshing honesty. They can ramp up some pretty heavy tunes, but appear most comfortable with melodic, modern rock balladry.

The Used is a punk/emo band from Orem, Utah, United States consisting of Bert McCracken (vocals), Quinn Allman (guitar), Jeph Howard (bass) and Branden Steineckert (drums). Their self titled debut album The Used produced by Reprise Records has so far sold nearly 200,000 copies and counting. The band later released Maybe Memories, a live album featuring the songs from their self titled album along with a DVD with many features. They released their second album In Love and Death, produced by Warner Brothers, on September 28, 2004.
In 1997, Quinn Allman, Jeph Howard, and Branden Steineckert played together in hopes of becoming a band. It later came to realization that they needed a singer in order to get anywhere. Jeph then decided to switch from bass, to vocals. After playing a couple of songs, they noticed how horrible they sounded without a bassist. Jeph then switched back to bass, and they decided to host auditions in order to find the singer they wanted. What they did was have a person sing while they played a random beat. After about 50 or so auditions, Bert McCracken, a classmate at Quinn's school showed up and gave his performance. After the show, they knew that he was the one they were looking for. They decided to call him up and ask him to join, which he did.
