its mainly defined by vocal style.. kinda melodic, but gritty/shouty at the same time.



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

I mean.. if you go up to some random 11-teen year old with pig tails and a studded belt, they'll tell you emo is New Found Glory or Good Charlotte and whatever else MTV is feeding them. But there are some very good "emo" bands out there still.

Sparta, for one, is a great emo band, if they really are an emo band. Now I'm really not sure. :confused: And that's all I can think of.

I heard that emo guys go to the women's dept to buy their jeans.

and in the case of Norwich to buy their shoes too.

Emo seemed to grow out of post -hardcore to me.

Bands at the forefront of the populr emo explosion a year or so back are:

Jimmy Eat World - the main one and poppiest.

Neither are a patch on at the drive in IMO.

Yep if only all pop was like that i.e made by mental cases who only hire mental cases!

Gj and at the drive in are in no way "emo". I love both of these groups though. Relationship of Command has been in my cd player for a good 5 days straight now. Cool you mentioned those bands...
