    Emo: Short for "Emotional Hardcore"

    I guess there are many styles of emo, and its mainly defined by vocal style.. kinda melodic, but gritty/shouty at the same time.

    Good examples of big(ish)emo bands would probably be:

    Thursday - www.thursday.net
    Thrice - www.thrice.net
    Something Corporate - http://www.somethingcorporate.com

    I thought that was "screamo"? Emo, to me is just a bunch of whining and an excuse for kids to wear thick glasses.
