i wouldn't call sparta and at the drive in emo, but that's just me. mofo, the all american rejects suck, i'm sorry.

it's like saying all country sucks. i haven't heard all country, but i've heard enough to know that i don't like it. same with rap.

Well thats no big deal because everyone else in the music industry calls them emo.

They ARE emo bands.

PS, why do you have to attack a band I like? How many threads of yours do I just completely stay out of because I dont like the bands?

The problem with Emo is that the genre has billions of COMPLETELY different types of groups all thrown into one. Anyone who says all Emo sucks doesnt even know who or what emo is.

EMO bands I REALLY like:

At the Drive In
Sparta
Thursday
Get Up Kids
Saves the Day
Dashboard Confessional
All American Rejects
Weezer
Wait, I was listening to "The Sweater Song" back in 1994 and thought it was grunge

mofo, i respect your musical tastes, i'll check out some more stuff by those bands. there's a pretty good chance i'll like them, and i just haven't given them enough of a chance.

just think, i may actually have a real reason to use that foot/mouth AIM smiley afterall...

I like what you guys have said so far... I agree that many bands are pigeon-holed by music critics with invisible boxes called genres. This issue came up in a thread about Punk, where I said it's a term too limiting to classify most bands. The word Emo is now being shuffled in with other alternative classes, and is often mistaken for pop punk. I made this thread to see if anyone could convince me that this mass-media term applies to any good music... not whether it is a valid term or not. Most people call all insects bugs, when in fact only a certain few are true bugs... it's more convenient to use easily referenced categories, even though I oppose their use. Quite the paradox eh?

Dont even worry about it, I'm totally not!!!!

Sorry I never replied and it looked that way!!! I was "busy" the last couple days. By busy I mean "found a new stupid way to waste time". I'll tell you about it later.

I was just trying to say pretty much what everyone else here has said. Emo is a weird genre because every band that's called Emo HATES being called that, but they still are classified Emo bands. The genre is so all over the place, it's hard to define what the crap it really is. I just go by who the press usually calls emo, but I try to not let that mean anything to me.

On another note, I HATE all the oldschool bands that people call "Real Emo". I havent heard one I've liked.

Believe me, you dont. It's stupid/embarrassing that I've spent the majority if yesterday and today doing what I was doing.
