While it might take some time to calibrate to Tidal Wave‘s sound, one thing that is sure to remain the same is Taking Back Sunday’s penchant for catchy, repeated lyrics — so much so that many of them feel like clichés at this point. Besides his mic-swinging and upside-down-rafter-hanging antics, lead vocalist Adam Lazzara’s lyrics — accompanied by Nolan, Fred Mascherino, or Matt Fazzi — have always been his standout trait, and for fans who entered their teenage years with records like TAYF and Where You Want To Be, there’s at least a 50 percent chance a TBS lyric is tattooed somewhere on their body.
So what better way to prepare for Tidal Wave than by proving your knowledge of the band’s lyrics. Pulling three of the most recognizable, repeated lines from each of Taking Back Sunday’s previous six albums, we’ve rephrased the lyrics into riddles. Your job is to determine the lyric and then pair it with the correct song. It’s time to prove that you are a TBS superfan.
