Celebrate Tax Day by hearkening back to a time when you didn’t have to pay taxes. That time was 2004, when the emo (though they bristle at the term) titans The Used and Taking Back Sunday were the biggest things in remote proximity to a guitar. Though you might have stopped paying attention, neither band has stopped making music, with TBS’s newest Happiness Is serving as a testament that every band can age out of hype and remind people why they mattered in the first place.
