Music / A Day to Remember

Go To

A Day to Remember is a band from Ocala, Florida mainly known for their unusual amalgamation of Metalcore, Pop Punk, Emo, and even a few smatterings of Death Metal in their music.

Founded in 2003, the band made the rounds on independent tours before being signed to a major label. Since then, they've become one of the most successful bands of the Metalcore/Pop Punk genres.

Oh yeah, and frontman, Jeremy McKinnon made a guest appearance on Pawn Stars.

Tropes associated with ADTR:

  • Honor Before Reason / Revenge Before Reason: In spite of being outnumbered and outgunned, the protagonist in the music video for "All Signs Point to Lauderdale" takes a piss on his soon-to-be-stolen sandwich just to tick off the bully.
  • "I Want" Song: "All Signs Point to Lauderdale," which is about the narrator wanting to get out of a bad situation and find something to stand for.
    • And, of course, "All I Want".
  • Metal Scream: Jeremy McKinnon, when he pulls them off, is types 1 and 3.
  • Miniscule Rocking: "Intro" (0:42) "You Already Know What You Are" (1:28), "Fast Forward to 2012" (1:33), "Sound the Alarm" (1:49), "Why Walk on Water When We've Got Boats" (1:54).
  • Never My Fault: In "You Be Tails, I'll Be Sonic": "You killed what was left of the good in me—I'm tired, so let me be broken..." soon to be subverted, however, by "look down at the mess in front of me, no other words need be spoken. I got nobody else to blame though I try..."
  • The Not-Remix: In 2008, they re-recorded their debut album, And Their Name Was Treason, under the name Old Record. They later admitted that they were forced to re-record it by Victory in only two days, leading them to reuse the original vocal tracks.
  • Serious Business: Played for Laughs in the music video for "I'm Made of Wax, Larry, What Are You Made Of?" with the guys playing kickball against little kids. And it guest spots Mike Hranica of The Devil Wears Prada being a Large Ham.
  • Self-Parody: The Homesick and What Separates Me From You web series. The former is a parody of The Real World.
  • Sex, Drugs, and Rock & Roll: Averted. They're straight edge.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: The ending of "Right Back At It Again":
