  1. So this guy has like 5 'video blogs' somewhere on the internet of him crying and being all emo. Well I geuss he was just faking it and hes actually just some random british kid who hates emos too.

  2. Haha yea and there is one chick thats his friend that did the same shit. Hell, they had me fooled
  3. Fuckin hate emos, I mean get a life!

  4. No dude, you misunderstood, they're NOT emo's.
  5. Feel the love :(

  6. Im tired of people who keep hating on ppl, I forget who it was that wrote that chain of sentences about this, but it was perfect, its like:
    If you dont like the way I look, turn around.
    If you dont like my music, dont listen.

    shit like that.
  7. yeah i remember that, it was pretty good
  8. Most of you will not care about this post, but I have to make it, because it's extremely annoying seeing a bunch of uneducated people talking shit about something they know nothing about.

    The fact is most likely none of you know what the genre actually is or where it came from. All of the things labeled "emo" and "screamo" and all of that by guitar magazines and mtv are completely false. It's just a bunch of ignorant people that spread out words for a new trend, not knowing that these words already existed as names of real genres, which are very dissimilar to all of the shitty mtv shaggy hair boy bands you see. All of those bands are nothing but pop-rock and pop-punk acts. Just as the fake thug club rap is not real hip hop, all of the pre-teen hot topic nu-metal is not real metal, and the poppy indie dance bands do not represent indie scene as a whole. The fact is the majority of the population is completely ignorant of what the true genre is. It is very much an intense and underground style of music.

    Basically, the original emo genre is dead and has been dead for over 10 years. The screamo genre is similar but evolved to become much more aggressive, and is really the only true "emo" that exists today. These bands are almost all extremely underground, very talented, and very aggressive. The music often has a strong thrash influence and can be so intense that it sometimes borders on grind, but with more emphasis on melody and beauty. Popular modern emo/screamo bands include:
    City of Caterpillar
    Funeral Diner
    Hot Cross
    Circle Takes The Square
    Amanda Woodward
    The Assistant
    Yaphet Kotto
    Pg. 99

For other uses, see Emo (disambiguation).</dd> </dl> Emo is a subgenre of hardcore punk music. Since its inception, emo has come to describe several independent variations, linked loosely but with common ancestry. As such, use of the term (and which musicians should be so classified) has been the subject of much debate.
    In its original incarnation, the term emo was used to describe the music of the mid-1980s Washington, DC scene and its associated bands. In later years, the term emocore, short for "emotional hardcore", was also used to describe the DC scene and some of the regional scenes that spawned from it. The term emo was derived from the fact that, on occasion, members of a band would become spontaneously and literally emotional during performances. The most recognizable names of the period included Rites of Spring, Embrace, One Last Wish, Beefeater, Gray Matter, Fire Party, and, slightly later, Moss Icon. The first wave of emo began to fade after the breakups of most of the involved bands in the early 1990s.

    Screamo is a musical genre which evolved from emo, more specifically hardcore emo in the early 1990s. Characteristic of the genre are harcore screaming vocals and fast, harmonized guitars. Breakdowns in screamo songs are often slower and more melodic than in other genres, less of a "beatdown" and more an opportunity for introspection (and rest for the musicians). Other than that, it is fairly hard to classify (particularly since the rule about screaming vocals is bent fairly often). It is sometimes also mistakenly referred to as emo violence, which is closely related (although bands in both genres borrow ideas from each other). Lyrically, screamo topics are often times introspective, although it is not uncommon to see a screamo band with political lyrics. Most screamo songs use imagery and metaphors to communicate lost love or failed friendships.


    In California in the early 1990s, Gravity Records from San Diego released many defining records of this style. Significant Emo bands from this time include Heroin, Angel Hair, Antioch Arrow, Universal Order of Armageddon, Swing Kids, and Mohinder. In the New York/New Jersey era, bands such as Native Nod, Merel, 1.6 Band, Rye Coalition and Rorschach were feeling the same impulse. The labels Gern Blandsten Records and Troubleman Records released many of the influential records from that region and era. Many of these bands were involved with the ABC No Rio club scene in New York, itself a response to the violence and stagnation in the scene and with the bands that played at CBGBs, the only other small venue for hardcore in New York at the time.

    Many "Screamo" bands have broken up but in the late 90s and early 2000s, another wave of Screamo bands began. But even then, many of these new bands have already broken up. These include bands such as the highly influential Saetia, Envy, Pg. 99, Orchid, and City of Caterpillar.
    Despite how short-lived most recent screamo bands are, the underground screamo scene is still very large and is thriving throughout Europe and the United States.

    This will also be posted in the music section for all of you kids that have no idea what you're talking about.

    P.S. - I found it kinda funny that this thread was started by someone with a Bad Religion icon, when Bag Religion is pretty much just a straight up power chord pop punk band...
