This has been a very amusing and informative read, and I'm relieved that apparently I don't own any emo because if I did apparently it would have to be removed from the premises immediately and I'm sill in my pajamas and can't leave the house yet, so whew.

See, this is why I hate labels and genres...people know that something is tagged as "emo", and they avoid it like the plague. It particularly irks me with Bright Eyes, because they are so damn good. I understand that some people really dislike Bright Eyes (and can understand why)...but I think there are others who are really missing out.

There are songs that I like by Bright Eyes, but i can't see myself listening to an entire album.

well you guys seem to have made up your mind in a very rigid way ... so, all i can say is that you're missing out. especially if any of you are musicians... which is a good thing, cause the less people enjoy it, the less popular it will be, and the less bands will feel the need to sell out.

Sorry, got sidetracked.


I still have my tank of gas. And I still haven't really heard of any of these bands before.

I consider them punk, but they are labeled as Scremo and even just emo. I think they are a little "heavy" for emo, but whatever. I absolutly love this album...I don't care what it is, to me it's awesome.
Sometimes I think I don't understand what people's definition of 'emo' is. I just bought this album, and never in a million years would I have considered it emo or scremo or whatever. I agree, they're too heavy. And yes, it's good stuff.

Genres can be useful, but in the end, it's about the music, not the categories.

Diary was one dang fine album... I agree with the labels thing... its fun to be associated with a group or movement but to be defined by it (especially if you're a musician) sucks... sucks for the music and for the band (sometimes).

Wasn't emo supposed to be the next big thing but the "movement" petered out before it became big enough to see records?

Emo, like grunge, is a figment of your imagination. Total shadows-on-cave-walls shit.

Just as grungers of old (like me) got right pissed whenever you called Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, or some other obviously grunge band grunge, emokids of today refuse to classify any album as emo. Albums are "kind of emo" at best. The genre is too cool and antiestablishment to properly exist.

The torch has been passed. Keep the fires burning!

P.S., your guitarists all suck.
