    I support this thread. I will never forgive myself for sleeping through their show at bumbershoot right after the Gorge two years ago.

    Crooked Teeth is from their album Plans. Incredible song.

    I too was in this position, their name is weird but they are a solid band.

    Marching Bands of Manhattan is easily my favorite Death Cab song. Also quite possibly my favorite album opener ever.

    For those that think their name is weird: it's actually taken from a beatles song so that should ease any of this emo talk

    What Sarah Said is possibly one of the most beautiful and meaningful songs I've ever listened to.

    Gibbard took the band name from the title of the song of the same name written by Neil Innes and Vivian Stanshall and performed by their group, the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, in The Beatles' 1967 film, Magical Mystery Tour.

    it still has to be one of the worst band names i've ever heard. whenever i try to tell people about how amazing they are i can always tell i completely lose them when i say their name. his voice takes some getting used to as well. their loss, though.

    haven't heard any of their older stuff besides you can play these songs with chords, and I hate those effects they seem to use on every song on bens vocals. Not impressed with that album, is any of the other pre trans stuff any good?

    I thought Narrow Stairs was excellent. Cath... is incredible, probably my favorite song of theirs. Just some amazing lyrics: "as the flashbulb bursts, she holds a smile / like someone would hold a crying child" -- I remember the first time I heard that and it blew me away.

    Also love No Sunlight and I Will Possess Your Heart. Really great album.
