My band At The Skylines has won the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands for the Carson, Ca Warped Tour date! I'm pretty excited, seeing as this battle literally required no effort at all (not even a live performance of any sort :roll2:). You simply make a profile online, and people vote. :lol: No worries though, we're gonna kill it. ;)



Come see us if you're gonna be there/are in the area! We're cool, chill people, and we love hanging out with everyone we can. :)

Hey, that's kinda lame that you didn't actually have to play live.


Be honest here. did you feel it was more of a popularity contest than a skill contest? I know I've lost BotB competitions to the emo band who brought all their little friends to the venue. Your stuff is pretty good (not a fan of the clean vocals AT ALL), so I think you would have won either way, but still. Opinion?

ummmm, is it really that bad of a name? this is the first complaint about the name that ive heard since i joined the band more than a year ago.
also, "you guys", as in the members of the band before i joined, decided on that name because of a song that is very important to our singer and drummer. took the name from one of the lyrics to the song. name with legit meaning behind it + not near as gay as a lot of the bands in our "genre" = good name, to me

Well, at any given point, there's only one skyline, technically speaking. And you can't be at a skyline, it's something that only exists when observed from far away.


There certainly are worse names out there, that make significantly less sense, though.

actually no, but that would be rad. that band is sick :lol:
its from a skylit drive song (which is slightly unfortunate, because i hate that band), but my singer and drummer are big fans and it means a lot to them, so i cant really hate on it ;)

also, yeah, It's just a name... I've been in a ton of bands where the other members picked a name that they liked that I thought was awful, and I didn't ask for them to change it. After all, not my band... Well, not one I had a hand in forming, anyway.

just somehow reminds me of the core/scene kids and their retarded names

If i heard someone say it i'd automatically think giant hooped ears, guitars strapped to your chin, tight pants, some gay shirt of 90's pop culture and shitty overly brightly colored tattoos
:rofl:
sorry, no offense intended
