nahh they're not emo. im guessing you thought they were emo cuz of the fashion "look" they wear?

they're stuff (music) is definitely not emo though.

Dude, you will never meet a bigger emo band. Just because they attempt dress like Motorhead from they're early days doesn't make em any less emo. "All these things I hate (Revolve around me)" and "Hearts burst into fire" are blatantly emo.

they're emo, but then at the same time, when compared with other emo bands, they're kinda metal

Calling things "emo" deserves a facepalm.



Listening to and enjoying BFMV deserves a double facepalm.

Umm, Fugazi is not emo.

Well, not the emo pop punk stuff today. Back in the day they were the real emo bands. Not the bad emo. The good emo.

last time i checked emo is a fashion, not a music genre. Yes they may have the look and have emo fans, but they are not emo. I had the pleasure of meeting them and they are very happy guys that enjoy life and dont complain about life like emos do.
So that with good courage we say, “The Lord is my helper. I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

Yeah but the fanbase is all emos, and emo isn't a fashion its both a genre and a fashion "statement". Or, better known as "The self suicide of my generation".

I don't know what they are, but I don't like 'em. The concept of what's metal today is very "wide". But I don't care, because I just listen to 80s thrash, stuff like that, so I don't keep up with today's music much...


EXCEPT FOR CANNIBAL CORPSE!

Lets see what the almighty wikipedia says:


Emo (pronounced /ˈiːmoʊ/) is a style of rock music typically characterized by melodic musicianship and expressive, often confessional lyrics. It originated in the mid-1980s hardcore punk movement of Washington, D.C., where it was known as "emotional hardcore" or "emocore" and pioneered by bands such as Rites of Spring and Embrace. As the style was echoed by contemporary American punk bands, its sound and meaning shifted and changed, blending with pop punk and indie rock and encapsulated in the early 1990s by groups such as Jawbreaker and Sunny Day Real Estate. By the mid 1990s numerous emo acts emerged from the Midwestern and Central United States, and several independent record labels began to specialize in the style.


Ok, I think we've learned enough to say Bullet for my Valentine not emo, but metalcore.

What is this "emo" everyone talks about? A new Sesame Street character?

Show him Tears Don't Fall

Actually, show them Tears Don't Fall live, and he'll see a bunch of panda-eyes emo chicks on balconies and 14 year-old skinny emo boys spin-kicking eachother in the face in the "mosh" pit

I'ts not emo, but apart from that only immature people give a crap about genre.

If you like it, you do. If you don't like it, then you don't. That's all that matters, not bloody genre whoring.
