07.14.08 Top 10 Strung Out Songs

Top 10 Strung Out Songs

My 10 favourite songs by one of the most underrated bands, Strung Out. Narrowing it down to just 10 was very difficult! Honorable mentions: Scarecrow, Dig, Wrong Side of the Tracks, The Misanthropic Principle, Too Close to See, Velvet Alley.
1Strung Out
Razorblade

A perfect song! A masterpiece from Jordan's insanely technical drum intro to the dying ending notes. Epic, musical, and inspired.
2Mephisto

Similar to Razorblade, but with more of an ultimatum-feel. Also one of my favourite endings to an SO album.
3Cemetery

Now this is my cup of tea! Good ol' Strung Out being new and artistic without compromising their signature sound. Love it.
4Paperwalls

A fun, poppy punk song that melts together perfectly. One of my favourite Jim-era songs.
5Pleather

A nostalgic reminisce of a childhood with a now-estranged father. Lyrics are personal and effective as always and the melodies flow so well.
6Lost Motel

One of their more popular songs despite never actually being released. Strung Out shows how moving their music can be while clinging to their punk rock sound.
7Gearbox

One of their fastest, most aggresive songs (pre-Aiken). Fueled, angry, and personal all at the same time.
8Matchbook

Another fan favourite, and probably one of the best endings to a Strung Out album. Jason's vocals make the typical punk progression work with the song.
9Letter Home

A captivating, emotional song written from the viewpoint of a soldier overseas. Along with the great music, Jason's lyrics are one of the most personal and socially aware works in the SO catalogue.
10Vampires

Choosing a 10th and final song was difficult enough! Vampires gets the lucky spot for being a musical, poppy punk rock ballad with great music and lyrics as usual.
