Band - The Used Biography

The Used Band Members:

  • Bert McCracken
  • Jeph Howard
  • Branden Steineckert
  • Quinn Allman
  • The Used Gets Their Start

    The Used formed in Orem, Utah. Drummer Branden Steineckert was the person who got everyone together to make music. The area is known for its large Mormon population, not for its incredible punk rock scene, so The Used had a lot of trouble finding venues that would let them play. The Used's luck changed when they were signed to Reprise Records. The Used's hit songs include A Box Full of Sharp Objects, The Taste of Ink.

    The Used - Did U Know?

    • Lead singer Bert McCracken once dated Kelly Osbourne.
    • The band performed on the 2003 Warped Tour and played dates at Ozzfest 2003.
    • Bert McCracken sometimes screams so much while performing, he pukes on stage.

    The Used Says...

    "We used to have a refrigerator that was always empty because all of our money went to barely being able to make rent. And now here we are living out of a bus and we're able to eat a couple meals a day. We've got a record in stores, and we're doing what we love for a living. It's unreal."
