Fifteen years ago, four teenagers from Utah created a band and released a collection of albums that shaped the space of the alternative rock scene. High energy live shows, gut wrenching relatable lyrics,and melodies that blended pop sensibility and hard rock was the perfect combination to make an everlasting impression on fans globally.

Since forming in Orem, Utah in 2001, The Used have released 6 albums and 2 EPs - The Used (2002), In Love and Death (2004), Lies for the Liars (2007), Shallow Believer EP (2008), Artwork (2009), Vulnerable (2012), The Ocean of the Sky EP (2013), and Imaginary Enemy (2013).
