Ok, so this is a topic I have been putting off for a while but basically what makes a Band emo? I mean most bands that are commonly refered to as Emo bands sound the same as any other punk or Metal band (Punk & Metal being the 2 types of music commonly refered to as emo).
Also do you think Emo is even a real type of music or is it just branded "Emo" by record companys in an attempt to sell albums?

I can't think of any intelligent reply at the moment, so I'll just go with "lame thread is lame". Ts, this has been done a bazillion times before.

Well, there have been different waves of emo over the years, each one having its own distinguishable characteristics. Wiki it.

Saying that you like Bullet for my Valentine, Avenged Sevenfold or Trivium in the pit is like holding a transparent with "Flame me. Oh please please FLAME ME!" written on it.

EDIT: I don't mean to be a troll and I don't want to force my oppinion upon others, but these bands SUCK THE FAT ASS.

Do not take this as bashing you for listening to the bands, because I'm not trying to... I listen to Trivium and Avenged Sevenfold on occassion. But those bands are really metal. They could be considered on the virge of it, maybe even parts of the "lesser" side of metal. But in no way are they really in the "circle of metal".

Calm down... haha. Sure, people are going to say they suck, because it's not their cup of tea. They are talented musicians, just not very metal. Plus in comparison to a lot of other musicians, they have much less talent. Just for the fact that there are a lot of REALLY good bands out there.

Emo = Scene + depression + razorblade + bullets - colors.

For the definition of scene, check out the scene thread somewhere around in the pit.

trivium isnt emo, atleast mot their ascendancy album.

The term emo refers to bands like my chemical romance H.I.M and all that crap.
basically the crap kids nowadays like.Technicly emo is a dumb term as it is reference to emotional, all music = emotion. However i feel it deals more into whether a band is just angsty and the sound and writing is wrote in a manner in which angsty teens could campare to.

hopefully the trend doesn't last.

That is your oppinion and it's perfectly fine. But using something as controverse(sp?) as bands to prove your point won't get you anywhere. There are no facts to be considered about music styles, just points of view.
