The Used has had its share of problems before coming to limelight. The place they come for is not known for puck rock music hence, they had faced many difficulties as they struggled. There were not many venues that allowed them to play music. The foursome faced poverty, homelessness, substance abuse, but emerged stronger from it all finally.
Following their common passion for music they achieved success. It all started when in 2001, Branden Steineckert, Quinn Allman and Jeph Howard came together to make music. With everything in place they needed a vocalist and that is how Bert McCracken landed into the picture. He came up with the lyrics for the music that the three had already made and hence became the fourth member. Together they started recording music and making demo albums. Mostly the demos were recorded in Branden Steineckert’s bedroom therefore they were titled, Demos from the Basement. John Feldman came across one of these demos and introduced the quartet to many labels and it was in late 2001 that they finally signed with Reprise Records.
It was in June 2002, when The Used released their self-titled album and made their musical breakthrough. The album went on to be gold later.

The album was named after the tragedy that struck their band member Bert McCracken whose pregnant girlfriend died from a drug overdose.

With Dan, The Used continued its journey to fame and released their second live CD titled Berth and came up with their third album Lies for the Liars, in 2007.
The next album Artwork, the first record that was not produced by Feldman was released in 2009. It is considered as one of the best works produced by the band.
