"Emo" music

Okay guys - please explain "Emo" music.

My little "brother" who is part of Gen-Y and is 19, loves Jimmy Eat World, Dashboard Confessional and the Get Up Kids.

I have tried to listen to it, but it is all so whiney and not very interesting. It reaks of "teen spirit" and the music is very adolescent IMO.


What do you think?

LOL I love some of the "emo" bands! Saves The Day by far is th best. Anyways "emo" means "Emoition" so pretty much its just that guys found away to sound girly in their songs and still sound cool. Jimmy Eat World isnt that whiney though, just listen to their one song "Bleed American" and you'll see what I mean.

I'm going to a Dashboard Confessinal with Weezer concert in July! Hehe.

I've heard of Jimmy Eat World... but the rest I don't know about... all I keep hearing these days are Ramones wannabes....

I feel old

I adore the Strokes, and am glad to see new bands make it big to kick rap-rock bands like Limp Bizkit out of the spotlight. I don't care who their influences are, everyone is influenced by somebody. I'd rather have new bands like the Strokes getting out there and having a chance versus no new bands at all.

dashboard confessional are perhaps the worst band to grace the earth since starsailor, muse, and creed. urgh makes me angry even to think about them.

i'm pretty ambivalent about jimmy eat world. they've made some intelligent pop tunes, I guess.

take that back! starsailor is great!

that being said, don't like the other stuff. I wouldn't categorize Jimmy Eats World as emo. Creed is emo-- blah. Dashboard-- I like the single and the singer is hot but still eh, whatever. Linkin Park-- emo and can't spell so that's an automatic two point deduction. hmmm....I guess I'm too old to understand what the young people are listening to. Damn me for being 25! and kids-- if you feel you're life is sad and depressing come work with me and I'll show you what sad and depressing is really like!
