Half the links say that it stands for emotional, half for emotional/emotive hardcore. To me, this says that nobody really knows the truth and everybody who is making bold statements is making claims on nothing. The points that people have made that it couldn't possibly mean 'emotional' because other music is emotional is a silly argument. Its just a name.

Last night I met a girl named Verity. Her name means truth. Just because that is the meaning of her name, it doesn't mean that other people can't tell the truth or be true.

Drum'n'bass is called drum'n'bass despite the fact that other music styles contain drum and bass sounds. Rhythm and blues is so named, despite the fact that other musical styles have rhythms and blue notes.
My link perfectly understands that emo, is shortened for emotional hardcore.

Bombarding the poor boy?
It isnt like he realized he was wrong, and left quietly, he acts like an ass and tells us that is is ok to be wrong sometimes!

Lol. It's sad isn't it?

*sigh* This will probably end up being deleted like the Dream Theater thread just because some people here seem to like trying to wind up Don.

Crazy thought, if you don't like this thread, or if you really have nothing add other then negative remarks or put down. Why not just ignore the thread and leave it alone?
