An American rock band from Orem, Utah. Since their formation in 2001, they have released five studio albums.

The Used are known for having a highly versatile sound that has been said to fall under many genres, tones and moods, often switching over the course of a single song. While {{Post Hardcore}} and {{Alternative Rock}} are perhaps the best fitting, the term "{{emo}}" tends to get thrown into the mix, despite the band's neglect to consider themselves by those genres. Says frontman Bert Mc Cracken, "We're a rock band. That's all we've ever been."

!!Tropes featured by TheUsed:
* AlbumTitleDrop: "Leave the ''lies to the liars''" is repeated multiple times in "Hospital".
* AnimatedMusicVideo: Portions of "All That I've Got".
* AWildRapperAppears: Bert, briefly, in "A Song to Stifle Imperial Progression"- "So God bless the USA for what it's worth and let it be/Because there is no God and there is no USA, from what I see."
* CarefulWithThatAxe: One of their signatures.
* ClusterFBomb: "Liar Liar (Burn In Hell)". Considering that it's about {{Pedophile Priest}}s and hipsters, it's justified.
** Subverted in the "Force Without Violence", where Bert lists more creative, articulate things to say.
* CoverVersion: Music/{{Queen}} and Music/DavidBowie's "Under Pressure", with help from Music/MyChemicalRomance.
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Everyone but Quinn.
* EpicRocking: "Smother Me" exceeds the 6-minute mark. "Men Are All The Same", which clocks in just under 6 minutes, also qualifies, considering the band mostly performs songs around 3 minutes in length.
* {{Fanservice}}: The occasional makeout session between Bert and Quinn during live shows.
* GriefSong: "Hard To Say".
* HoYay: {{Invoked|Trope}}. Again, Bert and Quinn.
* LastNoteNightmare: Everybody sing it with me: It's getting, it's getting, it's getting kinda hectic!
* LighterAndSofter: Despite featuring plenty of topical sociopolitical themes, ''Imaginary Enemy'' is this musically.
* LoveIsADrug: "Overdose" says this directly.
* LyricalDissonance: Largely avoided. They really make a point of being direct with the attitude of their songs.
** There are several aversions, though, such as "The Ripper", featuring sad lyrics about how people don't live for the moment (the titular ripper being time itself) sung to a happy tune.
* MetalScream: Used in some of their harder songs.
--> I found a box of sharp objects, what a beautiful ''[[MetalScream THING]]!!!!!!!''
* MoodWhiplash: "Earthquake", a softer song, is placed between the nightmare-fuel-filled "The Bird And The Worm" and fast, catchy "Hospital" on Lies For The Liars.
** The same album has another example - the angry "Liar Liar (Burn In Hell)" is placed between the two gentlest songs on the record, "Find A Way" and "Smother Me".
* MrFanservice: Depending on who you ask, any member of the band applies.
* NonAppearingTitle: Rarely. "Noise And Kisses" is an example.
* OdeToIntoxication: "Sound Effects And Overdramatics" is partly about crystal meth. Bert has had troubles with addiction in his past, although he's been clean for several years now.
* PrecisionFStrike: Featured in "Hands and Faces", "The Taste of Ink", "All That I've Got" and "I'm a Fake", among others. The Used prefer this over the ClusterFBomb, making the one curse word in a few songs much more meaningful than most rappers' cursing every other line.
** "Iddy Biddy" only has three curse words, and they're stuffed into three lines, but Bert makes sure to use them in the way that swearing was meant to be used: to shock and offend. [[RefugeInAudacity They're directed at Jesus, Mahatma Gandhi and Mother Teresa]].
* ReligionIsWrong: A subject of several of their songs, especially atheist anthem "On The Cross".
* SelfTitledAlbum: Their debut.
* ShoutOut: The music video for "All That I've Got" has the band wear garb with a slight [[Film/AClockworkOrange Clockwork Orange]] influence.
* TakeThat: Many fans insist "Pretty Handsome Awkward" is one toward Gerard Way of Music/MyChemicalRomance. All the band has said, however, was that it's about "someone with short blonde hair" (which Gerard had at the time of the song's release).
* WholesomeCrossdresser: Jeph in the "Pretty Handsome Awkward" music video.
