I was just thinking and it kinda seems to me like people are starting to be really hating and prejudice towards music genres they don't like or listen to. It's kinda like racism because really its just when a category is placed on different groups and it puts up barriers and makes people really spiteful towards other groups.
Something that made me think of this is how upset people get when a band gets called a certain genre and people don't think it should be in that genre.

People REALLY hate it if their band gets called emo or if a band thats considered emo gets called anything but emo

Just a thought feel free to discuss or add to that or whatever

Yes, this is nothing new.

Look, we need genres.
People will never like labels; I hate labels; but they have always made up modern society.

I've heard people not believe me when I say Fall Out Boy, 30 Seconds to Mars, Panic! at the Disco, Atreyu, The Used, Bullet For My Valentine, and similar bands emo.
Because, while true, it's a negative label.

Just because I choose to live an alternate lifestyle, does not mean I should be ostracized by the community. But, it happens.
Some bus drivers in Melbourne won't stop at a bus stop if goths, punks or emos are there.
I know homophobic shops that ban homosexuals.
It goes on and on.
Society is a motherfucker, but we've got to live with it.
We shouldn't have to, but we do. Labels and genres are a part of life.

its been the same for decades...
goths and grunge kids in the 90's
new wave and mods in the 80's
everybody and the punks in the 70's

everybody hates everybody coz of the music they listen to.

it even happens in the rap scene...but its really gettin bad now with the east coast/west coast bullshit.

Wrong. Emo = late 80s/early 90s stem of punk. They = pop-rock. I have nothing against those bands, but it's a bit hard to say you like emo when no-one really knows what it is

Well genres change.
Whenever people talk about how those bands aren't emo it reminds me of R&B. Way back in the day, it was completely different to what it is now. I guess it's the same as emo.

serious? i live in melbourne, and i've never even heard of that happening to anyone.

also, by defining yourself as 'alternative' you seperate yourself from the community.

anyway,
it's nothing like racism. it is irritating but not a lot more.

i do sympathise, however.

Thats another thing, people always get caught up in definition and it results in massive arguements from time to time. Mostly these arguments are just people competing for musical knowledge

Fugazi, Jawbreaker etc...

Surely this is down to some journalist or something, like there is also myriad "-core" bands just made to confuse everything and everyone.

its not like racism at all. some genres are clearly superior to others
O what a disgrace if such a despised and base race, which worships demons, should conquer a people which has the faith of omnipotent God and is made glorious with the name of Christ!
