Forgive my ignorance, but what is 'emo'? :confused:

quoted from audiogalaxy:

""Emo" or "Emo-core" is short for Emotional Hardcore. The term began as a derogatory one but has been proudly and vehemently claimed by lovers of this dynamic, intensely emotional splinter genre of Hardcore. Really good Emo is characterized by sudden, surprising shifts in rhythm, ragged, screamingly emotional vocals, pretty instrumental breakdowns, slightly unconventional song structures, and a decidedly un-punk embrace of poppy elements. Sunny Day Real Estate made a couple of amazing Emo records, and The Get-Up Kids and The Promise Ring are pretty good too. Emo would be a great genre had it not given birth to Math Rock, one of the coldest and most annoying of all of the post-punk splinter genres."

hehe. there ya go. :biggrin:

Yeah, Further seems forever is good! Try DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL! It is the same singer from FSF. Juliana Theory is also good, the first two albums are good. Starflyer 59 is all right. In my opinion is tooo mellow for me. Um, cannot think of another band.

well the CD booklet or whatever you call it of one of my P.O.D. CDs has an advertisment for some other bands and it says that Ancient of Days is Emo. I have heard one of their songs and it was not to bad.

If the Ataris are emo, which I was told they were, then I will avoid them. They make me feel suicidal :wah:

funny story about the Ataris. My brother was just glancing through AIM profiles b/c he was bored and saw someone who's said Ataris rule. He had never heard of the band so he assumed the person meant the old school video game system. So my brother IMed the guy saying how cool Ataris were. To make a long story short he had a half hour conversation about a band he had never heard of. . .

Ataris=emo??? I thought they were more like punk rock. Yeah, I know what you mean about the musical influence. Like Saves the day hehe it just makes me strongly dislike men and makes me want to grab a ahem, a spoon. :wah:

huahuauha, funny one about thinking that Ataris was the game system. :biggrin:
