All the hate we hold inside still won't save your youth’ from Days Are Numbered featuring Brett McCracken, the lead singer and songwriter of The Used.

I must admit this rating is incredibly biased considering BVB is one of my favourite bands however I wasn’t that into some of the songs. From a fan’s perspective I give this one…
