*Awaits another thread full of:
"TBS are emo"
"TBS are not emo"
"Yes they are, emo has just evolved"
"Thats not emo, thats pop punk, real emo is Rites Of Spring and Fugazi. Youre just a 12 year old dashboard fan, you dont know real emo."*

If you want to know what bands are 'real emo', I suggest you read the "Origins of Emo" thread we have stickied in the EMO forum... I think its stickied anyway.

well technically Rites of Spring is emocore and Fugazi is indie-rock. But I catch your drift

who cares all music is emotional.... It's stupid to label a bunch of bands as emotional... emotion is the crux of all art

^you obviously dont know what emo is. emo is just a different form of emotional music. and pop-- is not emotional (my opinion.)

Why does a band have to be emo to be enjoyed anyway.

Thats like saying you hate James Brown because you like 'real soul' rather than funk.

A band doesn't have to be emo to be enjoyed, but sometimes people favor a certain genre over another one.

Well I guess it depends on the size of the genre. Categorizing all your likes into rock is a broad statement, while categorizing all your favorites into experimental indie rock is significantly smaller

I don`t doubt that , but does it really matter if a band is 'real' emo or not?
