    Emo = Emotive Hardcore. Hardcore punk played in minor chords and a heavy focus on introverted lyrics. Started in the mid 80s by bands like Rites of Spring and Fugazi.

    Urgh, emo, bad bad music for people who like self-indulgent pity. At least be angry at the world like the goths or the neds.

    Now I wouldn't consider any of those bands as 'hardcore' - more like modern (American?) emo punk tbh.

    I know "Emo" is supposed to be short for emotive hardcore but I feel it has started to more describe bands such as listed above which, in my opinion, are just 'emotional punk'. As quad said, emo-core is how I would describe stuff like Underoath, A Static Lullaby, The Prisoners Dilemma, Before Today etc. Stuff that's a bit screamy and riffy but still comes with emo whines, lyrics and breakdowns. But that begs the question, where does screamo come in? K? :p

    I love this Genre Wars game.
