Songs for the Broken: RCR (& Friends) Pitch Mid 2000’s Era Music to Describe the Jaguars 2016 Season

The Jacksonville Jaguars are 2-10. For most fans, this has been the most disappointing season after an off-season of being told “THIS IS THE YEAR THEY TURN IT AROUND”. Well, it’s damn bad.

Obviously, music has an incredible effect to be relatable to a person’s mood and attitude. Specifically, when I’m going through a bit of a rough day, I turn to the early-to-mid 2000’s punk/emo to help me understand the sadness. So I asked the River City Rogue staffers and a few others what song from that era is perfect to describe the Jaguars season as a whole. Here are the answers:

Jordan de Lugo:
Over My Head (Better Off Dead) – Sum 41
Defining lyrics: “But if I had to say goodbye to leave this hell
I’d say my time has served me well.”

Scott Manze:
I Write Sins, Not Tragedies – Panic! At The Disco
Defining lyrics: “I chime in with a
“Haven’t you people ever heard of closing a G-D damn door?”
No, it’s much better to face these kinds of things
With a sense of poise and rationality.”

Ashley White (Reporter for the Tallahassee Democrat):
Boulevard of Broken Dreams – Green Day
Defining lyrics: “I walk this empty street
On the boulevard of broken dreams.”

Young and Aspiring – Underoath
Defining lyrics: “This all needs a break from you, and I’m used to this.”

I’m sure there are hundreds of songs that you could use to describe the Jaguars season in this genre, and I’d like to get your thoughts. Tweet at me what you think is the perfect emo song for this scenario is. I look forward to your suggestions.
