You may or may not have heard of Twenty One Pilots by now, but either way, this band (which has two members, not 21, contrary to what you might think) is quickly blowing up. Here are just a few reasons (out of many) why you should start listening to Twenty One Pilots.
1. The music
2. Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun
Tyler Joseph is the lead singer and songwriter, and Josh Dun is the drummer for Twenty One Pilots. You may be thinking you need more than two people to be in a band, but they make it work. Tyler is a multitalented artist who plays the ukulele, bass, piano, accordion, and probably much more, as well as raps. Josh is a fantastic and enthusiastic drummer who does some mesmerizing tricks with his drumsticks. Not only are they amazing musicians, but they are also both inspiring and fun individuals.
If you follow Twenty One Pilots, you know that Tyler and Josh are best friends. Just look at their social media. You will soon be wishing you and your best friend had such an awesome handshake. Their strong friendship is so evident in this duo and makes the band just that much more enjoyable. Don’t be afraid if you’ve heard that Tyler has kicked Josh out of the band again; it won't last long. This is just one of the many jokes you can be in on if you start listening to Twenty One Pilots, which leads me to my next point.
4. The clique
5. Amazing live concerts
I’ve had the great experience of seeing TOP twice so far, with a third time coming up soon. They have been the best concerts I’ve ever been to. From Josh Dun drumming on top of the crowd and doing backflips off of pianos to Tyler Joseph running through the crowd to climb on top of a pole and sing passionately to people in the way back, this band never fails to surprise and excite you. It seems like they do just about anything and everything to make the show as amazing as possible. Don’t be surprised if you see them wearing skeleton outfits, ski masks, or Tyler in a floral kimono.Now that you know a little bit about the spectacular band that is Twenty One Pilots, I suggest you go buy all of their albums and find out some more fun facts about your new favorite band. You won’t regret it. Stay Street.
