    Ah, Gaslight Anthem isn't bad, I just don't think the OP has any idea what they are talking about. They sound nothing like the Killers, Three Doors Down or Vertical Horizon. None of those bands sound alike at all.

    More like Alkaline Trio+Springsteen with a hint of Social Distortion.

    I would say they sound more like The Hold Steady and Springsteen.

    I do like them though.

    yeah the other descriptor i was going to use was Hold Steady, except they've got more of a quirky lyrical feel, versus Gaslight's straight-up anthems

    Can't wait for either of those two. Gonna be two of the best rock performances of the weekend for sure.

    I don't know man, when I first heard Gaslight Anthem I thought of some of the mellower tracks off of Ghost Tigers Rise.
    Thats all.

    Totally like Against Me! Not too bad. I'll probably catch them if no one else good is playing against them.
