The difference between seeing this bands live, and hearing them on a cd is far bigger, and you realize they can't perform for crap.

emo=meaning "emotional" emo is actually okay, or was, but modern crap like my chemical romance, panic at the disco, fall out boy, or bands like them or totally crushing it.

Just picture Grunge all over again, just this time with eyeliner and tight jeans.

So all and all what im saying is singin in a whiny tone, and being depressed is the latest trend.

Though the "being depressed" part has been around in music forever.
You're an idiot. Did you ever stop to think that if "emo" stood for emotional then all music would be labeled emo? It's a branch of the hardcore genre that broke off in the mid-80s when acts like Embrace and Rites of Spring came into being. It has existed long before those generic rock and pop-punk acts started labeling themselves after the original genre just because a few of their members liked later "indie emo" acts such as Cap'n Jazz and Sunny Day Real Estate. Emo isn't a trend of fashion or a lifestyle; emo is a genre of music and can only be that. It isn't dead, and it definitely hasn't "evolved" into what you see on MTV and in AP magazine.
