After the breakup of Craig Finn and Tad Kubler's previous band, ''Lifter Puller'', the two went on and formed ''The Hold Steady'' in 2004 with more variable and therefore much more broad lyrical influence (cited by Finn as ranging from [[Music/TheMountainGoats John Darnielle]] to Music/JayZ). While not every one of their albums is connected to their iconic MythArc, they are connected thematically through drugs, parties, religious allusions, toxic relationships, and the occasional redemption. Craig serves as the band's leading vocalist and Kubler as lead guitar and backup vocals. Their current lineup also includes Galen Polivka on bass guitar, Bobby Drake on drums, and Steve Selvidge on guitar.

* MythArc: ''Almost Killed Me'' introduces Holly, Gideon, and Charlemagne, three people caught in the scene of parties, drugs, and gang violence. ''Separation Sunday'' takes the story further in depth, and gives Holly a metaphorical resurrection by the end. Subsequent albums describe episodes in-between Holly's fall and redemption and introduce Sapphire into the mix. ''Stay Positive'' has its own murder mystery arc; whether or not it ties into Holly's is open to interpretation.

* BungledSuicide: "Teenage Liberation" describes an instance like this.
-->"He took one good swipe at his wrist, but he missed so he lived"

* LoveConfession: From "How A Resurrection Really Feels":
-->"I was all wrapped up in some video booth when I heard her say 'I love you, too' "


Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: Fitting that a girl who turns to drugs and sex before being symbolically resurrected is named "Hallelujah." If "Stevie Nix" is anything to go by, her age is meaningful, too, in that she returns from her hedonistic lifestyle the same age that Jesus was crucified-- 33 years old.

It's also worth noting that Finn has dabbled in solo work during some of the bands hiatuses. His first album, ''Clear Heart Full Eyes'', was released in 2012 and his second, ''Faith in the Future'', in 2015.
