i never said it didn't exist before..and i do like some earlier emo..

i was merely giving my opinion, and stating what i thought the latest trend was...

I admit i haven't studied the genre very well, but being in highschool and being around alot of students that refer themselves as "emo"-wether you like it being a style or not thats what a lot of people are calling it, and i do find it to be a trend.

I believe emo is a fashion trend whether or not you believe it correlates with the music or not.

im not going to comment on "emo" because to me bands such as Fallout boy, MCR, Panic! etc etc etc are simply being marketed as that three letter word to acheive bigger sales and take advantage of the adolescents who will follow their peers in liking a style of music seen as cool at the present time. as far as i know (granted, my knowledge on hardcore and "emo" isnt vast) its false labelling. In London its all about indie. again, most bands referred to as indie are in no way, shape or form "indie", their simply marketed as that because apparently its become the "in" thing to like in london. If anything these so called bands are guitar-led pop or if their particularly rough in their style, garage pop. I guess the trend is marketing bands under a broad classification to attain as big a target audience as possible. Pretty enduring trend.

You're right above emo stu, and its good to see someone aside from regulars in that forum know what it is.

I'd also go with that sort of indie also. All these major label killers knock offs are trendy as hell.

When you say 'leading' and 'music industry' as in a present tense you can just look at the sales in the billboard top 200. It should also give you some indication of who (market segment) is buying the most music in the industry.

If you're asking for an opinion of what the next big thing in music is going to be you'll need to consider the market segment too, which seems to be predominately 1.) pre-teen females, 2.) 13-24 females and 3.) males 15-24. Another segment that 'buys' albums en masse is an older segment that all buy the same album for nostalgia. The reason for these earlier age groups dominating are because of the peer structured enviornments they live in.

If I was going to bet on the next big thing I would say lighter dancy pop rock with a rythm/ sampling influenced by hip hop. Stuff that is fun and light. Comedic.
The reason is with the current state of the world there is going to be a plethora of news saturation that will adequately scratch that itch of making people depressed.

It's not the kind of music that I would rush out and buy, but then if I own anything on the top 200, I didn't buy it.
