If they were truly emo they would make songs about how their songs are crap and how that makes them depressed.

I can't believe you are whoring yourself out like that.

It's true. I'm trying to think of some good emo after like 2001 and I can't. I blame 9/11 or something.

i think the lyrical content is a big indicator of the awful shift in emo. here's some snips of revival garbage:

Bullshit you ****ing miss me
There I said it I guess I’ll talk to you in a few months
Sitting drunk on the sidewalk
I guess I’ll get up
I guess I’ll go for a walk
Brushed my shoes against the pavement
I swear this has gotta be the hundredth
Time I thought of you tonight


Do we know the truths
Of every broken step?
Only if it's told,
forgotten when it's old,
undesired and cold,
there is no story to be sold.


here is an american football dump

Picture this
The long awaited
Sickening kiss
How does it feel (explain)
To know (how)
We've re-written history (these things change)
Despite the complicated
Beginning to all of this
Honestly?


now here are the jams

Where forget-me-nots and marigolds
and other things that don't get old,
don't get old
between one June and September you're all I remember
but I'm a lantern, my head a moon.
I married a room where I'll at least keep my hands in order.
And what about the air, lying awake.


I walked along beside the purple mountains beneath the orange sky
Imagined what it all might look like with these planks out of my eyes
I wondered if the big white horse was coming down tonight
I wanted to taste that victory but my mouth was dry


not saying the old ones are better than the new ones (they all blow), i just feel like there's a considerable difference.

Yeah there is. The old ones are way more poetic. The newer ones are more teenage angsty

idk if 'poetic' is the right word

more like irrelevant metaphors you just accept are supposed to be sad

even if they're entirely meaningless

that's true. but at least they were making an attempt to be a little deeper than "fuck you I know you miss me" type stuff that a lot of the newer bands seem to do

Yes most of it is absolute garbage, like C'MON I HEARD THIS RECORD ALREADY U ****S

Some of it is good

(every genre of music described in those 2 lines)

anyway I like emo revival fight me

my man

there are a ton of mediocre bands coming out of the revival but also a ton of really rad ones, and I think that's enough for me to give it my thumbs up.

The **** is this thread? Rites of Spring is true emo. One Last Wish too. Not that shit that co-opted the term like MCR or whatever dog-turd band got posted in OP.

Use that site to check

Or first half of this video is a good enough indicator.

At any rate, Morpho is right. Listen to Mayhem.

Emo has never not been shit. Any statement to the contrary is factually incorrect, and marks you out as an anti-Semite.

Anyone who thinks that a genre pioneered by Guy Picciotto and Ian MacKaye is shit clearly has no fucking clue what is going on around him in the asylum.

It's not emo, therefore irrelevant to the thread

Soppy goth music was never emo.

For some reason whenever I think of emo I think of this:



Something about overbearing emotions.
