Ten Grand - The Comprehensive List of Everyone Who Has Ever Done Anything Wrong to Us

This is quite possibly one of the coolest screamo concept albums I've ever heard. There's this computerized voice in the background, reading off people's names, including "The Get Up Kids" and "The Asshole That Stole Scott Lawrenceson's PlayStation." The real reason to listen to this album, however, is undoubtedly Matt Davis' vocals. Sadly, he died at the age of 24 of a heart attack.

Cool little note about Ten Grand's name: Ten Grand was originally named The Vida Blue, however another band of the same name, featuring some guy from Phish, offered the band $10,000 if they changed their name.
