Riff: Alkaline Trio – “Until Death Do Us Part”

Apr 2, 2013

Did I love everything that I loved?/I suppose I did when push came to shove

from Until Death Do Us Part lyrics by Alkaline Trio

Al3 outdo themselves in the goal to compose a song using only hackneyed sayings – “Until Death” makes it about halfway there. Add a pound of “bones” and “heart,” and break up the lines two words at a time for emphasis. Pop-punk is necessarily cheesy, but it doesn’t have to be this generic; [LISTEN].
