The Used - History In Less than A Minute

The Used is an American rock band from Utah formed in 2001 by vocalist Bert McCracken and guitarist Quinn Allman. They rose to prominence after the release of their debut album, The Used (2002), which featured hit singles like “The Taste of Ink” and “Buried Myself Alive” which helped launch them into the mainstream music scene.


Since then, they have released several more albums (In Love And Death, Lies for Liars, Artwork, Vulnerable) featuring a unique blend of emo-rock and post-hardcore sounds accompanied by heartfelt lyrics about topics such as mental health issues, relationships, death & loss and many other issues that are close to the band's heart.


They also actively support numerous causes through their charity organization "The Used Foundation" which has raised money for animal shelters; provided musical instruments to kids in need; supported breast cancer research initiatives; donated funds to help end domestic abuse & homelessness; and much more. Through their foundation, they strive for real change rather than just making donations — believing that every small action can make a big difference in people's lives!
