The band has undergone something of a style shift from their first album to their more recent works starting with ''Appeal To Reason'' - from straight PunkRock to a more mainstream sound, although the social commentary in the lyrics has always remained intact. Opinion is divided on which, if any, is the better sound.

* InMemoriam - "Make It Stop (September's Children)" was written to address the growing problem of homophobia, and to honor the memories of those that perished in the September 2010 suicides and those who have committed suicide for bullying, for whatever reasons, throughout time. It even quotes the names of the victims: Tyler Clementi (18), Billy Lucas (15), Harrison Chase Brown (15), Cody J. Barker (17), and Seth Walsh (13). The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XP4clbHc4Xg video]] makes this even more apparent.

** ''Hero of War'': [[spoiler: the man in the story fails to stop his friends from committing war crimes ([[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything which are suspiciously similar to some committed by US troops in a certain prison in Iraq]]), and then falls to peer pressure and joins in.
