I've been listening to a lot of the REAL emo bands lately. The bands that started using influences from hardcore and branched out from there during the mid-80s. I.E. Fugazi, Rites of Spring, Promise Ring, Jawbreaker, etc. Please discuss favorite bands, albums, songs, etc.

I don't know whether or not people consider any of the Kinsella bands "Real Emo" (I hate that term though. Such an elitist ring to it...)

But if people do, I have been listening to American Football quite a bit lately.

And The Promise Ring are good as well.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I didn't mean to sound elitist, but it was the only way to prevent people form posting, "Aiden roxxorz! They invented emo!"

^^Lawlz.

Anywus, it's hard to say what's real emo nowadays.

As you said "The bands that started using influences from hardcore and branched out from there during the mid-80's"

That's all music is really.
It's basically like this:

"The bands that started using influences from [insert band/genre] and branched out from there during [ insert time period]".


But whatever, when I think of Emo I think of ....

hmmm..

Sunny Day Real Estate
Texas Is The Reason
Jimmy Eat World
Saosin


Each, I think, legit in its classification.

Ah, right, right.

I don't know alot of "real" emo, well, except for names really. I do happen to listen to Sunny Day Real Estate and Jimmy Eat World quite often though, and I consider those true emo.

I think the problem is that bands hardly ever stick to one genre now a days with all these albums they put out. Example:

*I think that though Weezer is not an emo band, that their release "Pinkerton" was an emo album, or at least in the vain of emo albums. I consider it an evolution in what emo was doing then.*

Other albums that are recent and can be considered emo but by non-emo bands (IMO that is):

Brand New - Deja Entendu
Thursday - Full Collapse/Waiting
Modest Mouse - Sad Sappy Sucker
Jimmy Eat World - Clarity
At The Drive-In - Acrobatic Tenament/In-Casino-Out
Death Cab For Cutie - You Can Play These Songs With Chords
