anybody here relate on my topic? EMOtional
gawd i love the urban dictionary.
LOL. ebony greasy unwashed hair. LOL. Only punks do that, but the true meaning of EMO=broken hearted
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.
what you mean Emotive Hardcore called EMO CORE.
Thats a bit more accurate....
how many emos does it take to screw in a light bulb?
none, they just sit in the dark and cry
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.
Or, ya' know, you could be open minded about this...
But if I was open minded ,wouldn't my brains fall out?
I thought people stopped listening to emo 4 years ago?
still going strong!
LOL!. EMO rules. I also like geek rock, death metal, black metal.

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?
I love this Genre Wars game.
