AIM Profiles: Without them, how would your friends know about your burdening sense of middle school-induced ennui? For so many of us, they were a profound means of self-expression -- like an art museum, but filled with Taking Back Sunday quotes.
Let's rewind a little and give a well-deserved hat tip to some of the classic lyrics we proudly displayed on our profiles:
"So, is that what you call a getaway? / Well tell me what you got away with / 'Cause I've seen more spine in jellyfish / I've seen more guts in eleven-year-old kids."
"Seventy Times 7," Brand New
"Don't waste your time on me / You're already the voice inside my head"
"I Miss You," Blink-182 (*Still the anthem of my heart, by the way. IDGAF)
"I'll follow you into the dark"
"I Will Follow You Into The Dark," Death Cab For Cutie
"To hell with you and all your friends"
"A Decade Under The Influence," Taking Back Sunday
"This is because I can spell confusion with a 'K' and I can like it"
"My Konstantine," Something Corporate
"Have you ever been alone in a crowded room?"
"Dark Blue," Jack's Mannequin
"You're a touch overrated / You're a lush and I hate it"
"You're So Last Summer," Taking Back Sunday
"Let's get these teen hearts beating faster, faster"
"Lying Is The Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off," Panic! At The Disco
