Ouch.



Sleeping With Sirens' Kellin Quinn walks us through his iPod in this month's magazine. Here's a taste of what he had to say...

THE SONG THAT MADE ME WANT TO START A BAND
FINCH - ‘WHAT IT IS TO BURN’
“Finch’s mix of heavy and melodic vocals inspired me. I was into the whole Drive-Thru Records scene. I played ‘What It Is To Burn’ so much my disc broke! We played at the same venue as them once, and I stage dived, but I fell straight onto the concrete. Everyone was too busy with their drinks and singing along. The rest of Sleeping With Sirens laughed their asses off.”

THE SONG THAT SUMS UP WHERE I’M AT IN MY LIFE RIGHT NOW
SUM 41 - ‘STILL WAITING’
“There’s not a lot of positivity in the world at the moment, and ‘Still Waiting’ captures that feeling. Violence is breaking out everywhere, you see all the shit happening in the U.S. election race, and the media are putting it all out there for younger generations to see. That’s why it’s so important that we all stand up and say, ‘We’re not okay with what’s going on, we’re not going to take it!’”
