Words To Live By ~ Courtesy Of Some Fabulous Band Members

Here are some quotes and such from bands I like.. they may be inspirational, funny.. or even creepy. Wouldn't surprise me.

The stuff in italics are my notes. :)

Chapter 1

Damn chapter titles no one likes them anyway

All Time Low

"Never underestimate a girl’s love for her favorite band. Never think even for a minute, that she won’t defend them to her death. Because it’s not just the music that makes that band her favorite. It’s the guys, the gals. It’s the fans. That band might of saved her life, or just made her smile everyday. That band has never broke her heart and has yet to leave her. No wonder she finds such joy in her music.” ~Alex Gaskarth

"You only know true tragedy when you run out of peanut butter." ~ Alex Gaskarth

Be yourselves and fuck everything else, alright?
~ Alex Gaskarth

Life's greatest tragedy is not that it will someday end, but the most only live to follow directions and sometimes end up totally lost. ~ Alex Gaskarth

I'm not even on drugs, I'm just weird.
~ Alex Gaskarth

“This next song goes out to anybody who’s ever been told that the way that they think or the way that they feel is the wrong way to think or the wrong way to feel. Goes out to anybody who’s ever been pushed down, held back, walked on. Anybody who doesn’t feel comfortable in their own skin, anybody, everybody. It goes out to everybody. It goes out to all of you. And the reason it goes out to all of you is because every single one of you is fucking beautiful. I’ve noticed that there’s a lot of people in the world trying to tell other people that they’re not beautiful. And I don’t stand for that." ~ Alex Gaskarth

Okay, I admit I may have a little crush on Alex.. and will try to include people other than him.. moving on.

"I know deep inside that being older won't make me any more mature because I am and always will be an immature little kid on the inside." ~ Jack Barakat

"Life is like Candyland, there are many paths to take.. and sometimes you run into Lord Licorice, but you'll always eventually find the Candy Castle." ~ Jack Barakat

"You don't always get the waterfall shortcut in MarioKart. You don't in life either." ~ Jack Barakat

What is it with Jack and little kid's games..

“Music has become my driving force behind life. It, to me, can fix bad moods, bad days, even bad people. It is the beat of my life.” ~Rian Dawson

Damn, that's the only Rian quote I know.. and the only one I can find on Tumblr. Ugghhhh. I'm sorry Rian

"You don't have to smile to be happy." ~ Zack Merrick

Okay can we take a moment to apperciate that one cause it's a special quote for me..

God, I love All Time Low.. but okay, moving on.. who's next.. ahhhh.. let's go with MT. Yay!


Marianas Trench

“You have to keep something for yourself sometimes too. And honestly the key for me is never, never write a song based on what you think someone else wants you to do; like I kinda just wanna write the song that I wanna write. You gotta write for you and as soon as you’re writing for someone else’s expectation, you’re not really doing it for the right reasons anymore.” ~ Josh Ramsay

"Because you start to believe you deserve it.. and no one really deserves that." ~ Josh Ramsay

"I hope for the best, but expect the worst." ~ Josh Ramsay

We all adore you Josh

"You know what grinds my gears? Cyclists who ride with no-hands to be sweet. Fuck off. I learned the no-hands thing when I was 6. Then I tried to impress some hot chicks and crashed into a tree." ~ Matt Webb

That doesn't even surprise me in the least..


Next band I guess


Remember what you're worth. Remember you're worth fighting for. Remember you're not a punching bag. Remember you're not a doormat. Remember you are valuable. Remember you are repairable. Remember you matter. Remember.. they don't. ~ Jacob Hoggard

Beauty is so much more than what you see in the mirror. ~ Jacob Hoggard

It’s hard to hide from yourself when you feel as if you’ve already disappeared. ~ Jacob Hoggard

The first punch is always painful. And most memorable. ~ Jacob Hoggard

Okay he's not even thirty yet how the hell is he this wise

"Why be guilty?" ~ Dave Rosin

I need more Dave quotes damnit

And I can't even FIND any Tom or Chris quotes double damnit

Green Day

I'm not even bothering with this whole band.. I just like the lead singer's quotes

"School is practice for future life, practice makes perfect and nobody's perfect, so why practice?"

"No one's really happy anyway, it's not human."

"The first time that you escape from home or the small town that you live in - there's a reason a small town is called a small town: It's because not many people want to live there." ( I got this for Adri.. so Adri.. you better be reading this. )

“It's okay to be a loser, it just depends on how good you are at being one.”

“If someone falls down, pick them back up. Just because there's not a frickin camera in your face doesn't mean you don't have to look out for each other.”

I have plenty more to do if you all want.. so tell me if you want more, I guess? ^-^ Please comment and let me know what you thought!

And I might take requests for other bands/artists too..
