haha emo??

In contrast to popular diessent, it is not short for emotional, it is short for emolian. Yes emolian, i know its whack but so are the guys who like it. The get up kids is a cousin to emo but its not emo its indie pop rock/indie rock/pop punk. Real emo goes as Texas Is The Reason, Mineral, Fugazi, etc. It comes out of washington DC in the late eighties when hardcore punk started to pick up. The emolian guys wanted an alternative to hardcore, they were all originally hardcore punk types unntil idiots like the get up kids desamated the style. And the thing about the hair and black clothing thats tight, it comes from a mix of goth/im depressed, mixed with neo-british punk style/dirty gutter punk/ weezer sac rides/metal head with a short haircut. The originator of real emo such as Mineral and fugazi and a whole other group of unkown DC underground bands never dressed the way these current emo kids do. and they are just that kids, following stupid trends.

the real thing about the way they dress comes from being simple.

real emo starts off slow and builds up to a climax of raw feeling and intensity[much like hardcore] and then drops off.

 

im out

later

please never, ever clump pedro the lion in with garbage like the juliana theory...pedro the lion is just like your typical singer / songwriter folk...in more ways than one. not every band that doesnt 'chugga chugga' should be labeled this ...because then we would have to rewrite history with simon and garfunkle as the inventors of emo....not embrace, rites of spring , or slint.

check out slint, texas is the reason, the metroschifter, car vs. driver and those types of bands. "emo" was hot shit before it turned into sissy ass junk. somewhere after the first promise ring full-length it all went to hell. piebald still rocks it like they're supposed to, check 'em out if you've never heard their songs.

from what i remeber the singer of fugazi is Ian Mckaye who was formerly in the band Minor Threat which was a hardore straightedge band. Hardcore straightedge: dont smoke dont drink dont do drugs sumthing bout dont fuck? maybe old ian is just getting back to his og

roots although i think he did stay straight through to the fugazi thing

those were fun shows for me even if i did get a blakeye (always with the eye damit haha) standing to close to that wild ass pit, i saw bands like Youth of Today, Reason to Believe dammit dammit cant remember too many more hmm must be all the ganj i been puffin since my straight days to make up for lost time

rock on

rad, I am listening to youth of todayright now...and I still think ray cappo sounds like yoda singing for a hardcore band

 

who cares about if someone is "emo"...some people will call me emo, other just call me a bit gq and some people call me an asshole. I wear black glasses so does that mean I am emo?..I listen to dashbpard confessional too, so am I emo?

 

who gives a flying fuck because will stab you in the fucking throat with my glasses you fuck.

Texas is the reason emo sucks! what!

 

 

j/k, emo's a type of music that falls into the hardcore, punk, and indie rock scene's. The list of emo bands isn't a huge one, but it's used to describe more whiney/pop genre's of certain other types of music (see above). What you need to know is that when people are using emo as an insult they mean it's weak, nerdy, flamingly homosexual, sweater and black framed glasses on the not-quite-fashion tip, greasy black star trek looking hair DOn'ts via the term 'spok rock', embracing a femminine side even females can't stand, ya dig? Don't go there, and have no mercy on those who do... they love the abuse, it gives them something to write about in their silver star laden journals.

p.s. yes i have a mineral quote as my signature, it's all love.
