Why is there so much about emo's? Who actually give a crap and why is it a big deal in the slightest?

People need to start realising that emo is a music genre, and that MCR and Fall Out Boy are about as far from emo as it gets.

"On Saturday, hundreds of emos are planning to march on the Daily Mail's headquarters" I just found that really funny for some reason.

In seriousness though, hasn't a similar scenario been played out everytime a new youth subculture emerges?

Terrible article.
These news groups know nothing about the whole scene, they've just went by what everyone else goes by and the general stereotype.
None of those bands are 'emo', and no one is 'emo' either as it's a genre of music, not a person or group.
I feel quite embarassed for the reporter tbh

This is silly; the whole emo thing peaked a few years ago with the release of MCR's 2nd album, not the wack parade.

So why are people still talking about them? Why are the news suddenly all over it?

Slow tip off...

Seriously, guys - this all peaked about 3 years ago, at least.

Since then you have had "scene", and "nu rave".. and now theres some strange combination of the two. Where will it lead next?

As fun it was, I think the emo is on the way out to the black parade

But seriously, this whole emo bashing thing is so 2007.

At least the BBC have got their facts straight in terms of music genre. Personally, I thought this was a fairly decent, concise report.

No, Embrace are emo. Sunny Day Real Estate are emo. MCR are pop.


MCR are pop-punk, actually, but were originally post-hardcore which is why they continue to be labelled emo.

And would people stop bitching about genre? The BBC said "angst-laden punk-pop" and called it an evolution of "80s emotional hardcore". They've basically got their facts straight.

but to be fair, cultures are defined by what people believe them to be, and they change over the years too. while heavy metal in the 80's meant deep purple and thin lizzy and bands like that, now heavy metal is way heavier, and those bands are known more as rock.

similarly, emo was whatever it was and now if a band is recognized as emo by most people then thats what it is. and if a person is recognized as 'an emo' then thats what they are.

edit: and to be fair, considering that reporters have a finite amount of time to write articles as well as look up all the details involved with them, i felt that that was a very fair and reasonably unbiased article.

Yeah, but people still acknowledge the roots of heavy metal. And besides that, emo evolved into something which already existed. Pop-punk was around for ages, it's just that because certain pop-punk bands have fringes it's suddenly a different genre. And it bastardises the original hardcore bands. That's what people take issue with.

Hardly pop to be honest. The first two albums were good, but the third has shown them actually trying to get into the mainstream. Unfortunately succeding.


"In 10 years time we'll have all these 30-year-olds on I Love 2008 talking about how embarrassed they are to have been emos. We'll have a Tory prime minister who's a Fall Out Boy fan."

That made me laugh so much. I mean, we all know that labour will still be in power Fall out boy aren't emo...

The whole emo thing is really beginning to grate. I'm talking about how some user discovers who Rites of Spring or Embrace are and feels the need to share their discovery at every opportunity they get.
