Emo was never used as an abreviation for emotional previous to the mid 1980s. The whole emo abreviation came about because saying emotional hardcore or emocore took lolol too long.

To me it seems that you and these scholars of music know nothing about said genres.

Don, you are such a smart guy. To bad that is as far as you'll get. The working force doesn't want a stuborn self-promoting closed-minded soul. They want someone that can change with the times. Now if you are going to argue a genre that you only know in words then you are proving my point.

Wow, so I know nothing about emo when all you've done is agree with what I just said. There is no ****ing difference between saying emo is short for emotional and saying it's short for emotional hardcore. I was just pointing out the significance between emo and emotional and why saying it's short for emotional doesn't mean you don't know anything about it because it's basically more or less what it means in a colloquial sense.

No. If that were the case Bruce Springsteen would be emo. The whole style is hardcore music. That's what it is, just hardcore.

Uh, no difference? emotional music can mean any music (rap, pop, rock, metal etc..). Emotional hardcore narrows it down to where it can be an actual genre. Instead of some any "emotional" band..

No, you see what you've done is taken the word emotional and taken music and put them together. That's not what happened when emo was first being developed.

I've already explained why this is silly. Read first post.

I'm writing a thesis on why Queen Latifah is progressive rock.

It doesn't matter if emo first stood for electric mother onion, the only thing that matters is what historically happened with the style.
