Here's a thought; let's stop labeling music and fighting over what genre a certain band is, and start listening to whatever pleases our ears no matter what anyone thinks of it! ;)

Since I belive in the whole "opinions not labels" thing, i would classify them as music. but in labels terms, i would say they are emo...not typical emo...but the song understanding in a car crash and cross out the eyes...just look at th lyrics.

slow and pansy have exactly NOTHING to do with being emo. zero. the reason everyone thinks that is because emo was the first sub-genre of punk (attention people who think they are elitists: don't start pouncing on that, emo grew from punk, no question.) with enough confidence in their musical abilities to slow down a bit. Emo can be fast or slow or anything.

Thursday is emo. emo is not a bad thing. and stop with this stupid "they are post-hardcore!" junk. Post-Hardcore IS emo. Don't believe me? read on.
Ian MacKaye (i hope everyone here knows who that is) went from the famous HarDCore band Minor Threat to the undeniably emo Fugazi. This occurrence was extremely common. Hardcore was quickly dying out in the late 80's, and many hardcore kids started emo bands AFTER they were in hardcore bands. Hence Post-Hardcore.
