Thursday were an AlternativeRock band from New Brunswick, UsefulNotes/NewJersey. They were one of the forefathers and TropeMakers of the 2000s Music/{{Emo}} scene, credited for influencing many bands and bringing the emotive hardcore genre into the 21st Century. They would later switch to a more AlternativeRock sound with a bit of {{Shoegazing}} and PostRock elements while keeping what would be their distinct sound. They unfortunately have broken up as of 2011, after releasing what some fans believed to be their MagnumOpus, ''No Devolución''.

* CarefulWithThatAxe: Very often. From Geoff, backing band members, or guest vocalists (either Tim from Music/RiseAgainst or Tom Schlatter from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgA3WY74q-M You and I]]).
* CallBack: "The Other Side of the Crash" tells of another viewpoint of "Understanding in a Car Crash".

* DrivenToSuicide: Many of their lyrics revolve around the concept of suicide, and their experiences with loved ones who fell to this. One line in "War All the Time" talks about one of their friend's older brother who fell off a cliff.

* CreatorBreakdown: They have stated to have come close to breaking up dozens of times. It was particularly bad after they wrapped up recording for ''War All the Time'', but decided to stay together after touring like it was their last run.
** "Turnpike Divides" was written about Geoff's divorce.



* ExecutiveMeddling: A big reason they decided to jump ship from Victory Records to a major (Island) was because they resented a lot of the decisions their label made without their consent, from cutting out lyrics from the artwork to cut cost to [[WhatTheHellHero designing "Thursday whoopie cushions" with an intent to sell at Warped Tour.]]
** Though not as bad but to a lesser extent, Island Records.



* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: "Fuck You, I'm In Space" and "Hide From the Orchestra", two fan favorites made only available on limited fanclub vinyl. Only low-quality rips of both songs are floating on the net.
