shouldn't pop punk be with punk, and EMO with hardcore? cuz isn't emo (emotional hardcore) a branch from hardcore punk?
Emo sounds like Punk, but Emo=/=Punk

Your one of the few people who got that one right lonewolf, i hate when people understand that emo branched off of hardcore, also that emo isn't existant anymore, i don't know wtf people THINK emo is, but it certainly is NOT what is played today

I love emo, and i love what is played today, it does have a ton of emotion, but its far from what emo is. EEmo died in the late 80's to early 90's

But yes what people think emo is, is a glamed out version of pop-punk, with more clashing guitars and instruments, rather than pop-punk, whch tends to lean into melody
they have a thread for this music on UG? mmmkay well i'll be damned. whey bother having so many subgenres at all? Its all rock n' roll, just varrying degrees of how good it is really

oh dear my sig. ah well

emo used to be in with hardcore. i've been upset about the change ever since it happened.

Cut my wrists and black my eyes. Blame pop-rock.

How am I being or trying to be fabulous/glamorous?
