|Dance Gavin Dance: The Ranking Extravaganza|
So I got inspired to do what Green Baron's doing for Anberlin and I decided to rank one of my favourite bands, Dance Gavin Dance... But I'm ranking them first in album order, then the songs ranked on the album, because holy shite ranking the songs by themselves would be difficult as hell for me. Also a slight disclaimer, I have a couple "unpopular" opinions on certain songs.
|1||Dance Gavin Dance|
Myyyyyy Favourite DGD album, mostly because it strikes a personal chord with me. DGD + Zazz = a funky fresh time. I'm not sorry.
|3||Strawberry Swisher Pt. 1|
|6||Powder to the People|
|8||Don't Tell Dave|
|9||Strawberry Swisher Pt.. 2|
|10||I'm Down with Brown Town|
|12||Dance Gavin Dance|
Downtown Battle Mountain
While I get why this is many other people's number 1, my main gripe with DMB is that there are some parts that feel greatly uneven to the rest of the album, so sue me. A great album nevertheless
The Backwards Pumpkin Song
|14||Surprise! I'm from Cuba, Everyone Has One Brain|
|15||Turn Off the Lights I'm Watching Back to the Future|
|16||Open Your Eyes and Look North|
|18||And I Told Them I Invented Times New Roman|
|19||Lemon Merigine Tie|
I guess Will Swan or someone likes strawberry's a lot or something idk.
|21||Dance Gavin Dance|
I realized that I have one song from each lead singer in my top 3, huh. I think Tillian is a good fit for the band, even if he does sound a little over-produced on this one.
Turn Off the Lights I'm Watching Back to the Future Pt. 2
A huge grower on me, really creepy lyrics though.
|24||Strawberry Swisher Pt. 3|
I'm terribly wasteddddd, I'm coming to piecessssss
Let's get fucking nakkkeeddd, and fall off the ddeeeepppp eeennndddd
|28||Death to the Robot with Human Hair|
Sounds a little Coheed and Cambria-esq, which isn't exactly a bad thing.
|29||Jesus H. Macy|
I may have rated this lower than I wanted too, but I just like the songs above just a little bit more, AH WELL.
|30||The Robot with Human Hair Pt. 4|
|31||Doom & Gloom|
|33||Dance Gavin Dance|
Dance Gavin Dance
Like DBM, "Deathstar" suffers with being a little uneven song quality wise. But what saves it is the technicality throughout
Uneasy Hearts Weigh the Most
This song is just soooo catchy.
|36||Me and Zoloft Get Along Just Fine|
Another grower track. The video for this song is weird as shite though.
|37||Burning Down the Nicotine Armoire Pt. 2|
When I first heard this, I misheard "No No No No No No No" as "Meow Meow Meow Meow Meow Meow".
|39||The Robot with Human Hair Pt. 3|
|42||People You Know|
Jon's lyrics are kind of... bad on this song. Also this is when his voice was more nasally so the lack of Kurt on this track was sort of a mistake on this song. Not a terrible track though.
|43||Hot Water on Wool|
The phone call part is stupid.
|45||Reprogramming Mental Preprogramming|
Not a memorable track at all.
|46||Hot Water on Wool (Reprise)|
I will never understand why they cut this song into two parts, this is at the bottom just on that fact.
|47||Dance Gavin Dance|
Downtown Battle Mountain II
While this one has grown on me a lot lately, it doesn't have a lot of real stand out tracks if you ask me.
Heat Seeking Ghost of Sex
YOU GOT THAT OSTRICH BEAK THAT'S LOWERING YOUR SKILL IN SNEAK
|53||The Robot with Human Hair Pt. 2 1/2|
|56||Purple Reign |
|59||Dance Gavin Dance|
Whatever I Say is Royal Ocean
I do like this EP, but to me there's really one REALLLYYYY good song, and the rest, while not bad, just don't have a lot of impact on me.
Burning Down the Nicotine Armoire
This is actually one of my all time favourite songs by this band
|61||The Robot vs. Heroin Battle of Vietnam|
|62||The Importance of Cocaine|
|63||The Robot with Human Hair Pt. 1 |
|64||Tidel Waves: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner|
|65||The Robot with Human Hair Pt. 2|
|66||Dance Gavin Dance|
It's Safe to Say You Turned Dig the Backseat
Ah christ, I missed this one. This song is actually number 3 on DBM 1. sorry 'bout that lol
