So we’ve established, a few times now, that Steve is EXTRA. His boyfriend went into the ice, and now he has a sadness beard and wears all black. But here’s the really important question: what kind of angsty music is he listening to?
Like has he stumbled onto 90s Nine Inch Nails? (“What have I become? My sweetest friend/Everyone I know, goes away in the end”). Evanescence and Linkin Park like it’s 2002? Is he listening to miserable indie rock like a Good Brooklyn Boy? Crying to The National and Elliott Smith?
Or is he doing the scene boy thing? If so, what kind of scene??? Metalcore like the Devil Wears Prada? Aesthetically, he’d fit in with the metalcore bros, as they have buff dudes with beards, but I’m just not sure it’s lyrically the best fit. Lots of zombies. Does he go for pop punk like Fall Out Boy, My Chem, and all their friends? Mid-2000s Long Island sad boys like Brand New and Taking Back Sunday? I imagine Pierce the Veil is a good fit: “My love for you was bulletproof, but you’re the one who shot me.”
THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT I, A SAD GIRL ™, WANT TO KNOW.
