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".
  • Never My Fault: In You Be Tails And 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..."

  • 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.
