Best of Burque’s worst band

Music writer Geoffrey Plant delved into the world of Brokencyde in Parody or Pabulum. Presumably, Plant took on this task because he’s a braver man than I am. I remember the first time I stumbled onto the horror that is Brokencyde. Slack-jawed, I watched the act’s music video for “Freaxx,” which is included below—along with a couple other wastes of YouTube bandwith—for your viewing displeasure.
Parody or Pabulum
Brokencyde’s best-of is the worst
By Geoffrey Plant
Music writer Geoffrey Plant deconstructs Burque’s most tasteless and financially successful act, Brokencyde.
For their seventh studio album, Lift a Sail, Yellowcard had a simple but ambitious goal: to outdo everything they’d ever done before. The guitars and drums had to hit harder; the songwriting had to cut deeper; the choruses had to reach heights only hinted at on their previous outings. Frontman Ryan Key believes he and his bandmates—guitarist Ryan Mendez, violinist Sean Mackin, bassist Josh Portman and guest drummer Nate Young (Anberlin)—succeeded on all those fronts. “We really feel like we got where we wanted to be, and made a proper rock ‘n’ roll record,” Key says proudly.
