Ok I took some of the bands off that were "indie/pop punk/hardcore/gayxcore etc" please keep in mind that I haven't heard of all these bands so I don't want to hear any "you stupid ****ing moron (insert band on list) isn't anywhere near emo!" Alright? Thanks. If you don't think a band is emo, mention it politely or you will be warned. Just everyone knows, this list includes all the subgenres, such as emocore, screamo, etc. Some are boarderline. And thanks to ALL THE EMO KIDS (especially mike, andrew, and eric) for making the list.

I put a star * by the bands I've heard and recommend.

Words of wisdom;
andrewbiles
"But no, that band's not mentioned on fourfa.com, can't have that, take them off, take them oooff"

BOOOOORING!


alright, CONTRIBUTE to The Emo List.

OK! Post deleted, cause 1. half of them were spam 2. i added most the bands.

SO! Only post if you want to give a suggestion to add to the list! And if you're going to say "INSERT BAND NAME" isnt emo, you might be right but emo isnt held down. There are types of eo just like every other genre...Emocore, emotronica (eric lol), etc Most of the bands are close to emo if not exactly!

edit - The Hurt Process is a pretty good emo band, I'm not positive if they're classified as emo or not though, but they sound pretty emo.

At the Drive-In.

The only other place they'd fit would be hardcore, and it'd be a shame to put them there .

I've heard 56 of these bands, good stuff, some that could be added though are

+ Ataris
+ The Contingency Plan
+ Hot Rod Circuit
+ Midtown
+ The Movielife
+ Off By One
+ Somehow Hollow
+ Something Corporate
+ The Reunion Show

Some people might argue that a few of these are pop-punk, but I would argue for all of them (except maybe 'off by one'), that they're not, and I think even Yellowcard should be on here too, they're kind of in the middle, but I think they fit here more than in pop-punk, so just consider it

- Glassjaw and any other band on here like them (they're way too hardcore for this list)

Yes, all of those are pop-punk(that I have heard of). They may have better lyrics, but they are still pop-punk.

I'd say Eisley is not emo in the least.


not in the least.
think of all the fun you've had, the finest line divides a night well-spent from a waste of time...

At the Drive-In was already discussed to be very unappropriatly placed in emo. Thats putting them in the same genre of Sparta and there is no similarity. Their sound isn't emo and their lyrics arent emo. They're insanely punk influenced and would be pretty well placed there.

They're in a league of their own which is why they have so much appeal.

First of all, I enjoy deathcore for it's complexity and it's the only genre heavy enough for me

+Sparta
+RUFiO (as mentioned before)
-Death Cab for Cutie
-Mae
-any other band like the above two

Death Cab for Cutie and Mae aren't brash enough to be considered emo.

ok...........

how can you think sparta is "emo" and death cab not? sparta is way farther away from emo than death cab is...although i think neither of them are "emo"...death cab is much more "emo" than sparta.......

Why Death Cab for Cutie, Snow Patrol, Sparta, Weezer or Good Life (just because Tim Kasher is in it does NOT automatically make it "emotional" music) are up there I will never know.
