Top 100 Emo Songs of All Time
24. Quicksand | "Landmine Spring"
"Landmine Spring" by Quicksand from the album Manic Compression (1995)
Taking sonic cues from Fugazi, early ’90s post-hardcore outfit Quicksand ended up doing some influencing of their own for the likes of Thursday, despite never attaining more than cult status. “Landmine Spring” delivers a thick, chunky riff that could out sludge even Alice in Chains and emo-tastic lyrics like “There is no pain in death, it only hurts to die.”
