    All music is emo
    Music cannot exist without emotional investment from the players.

    :ugh: emo isn't short for 'emotional', it's a specific style of rock

    of course it's short for emotional, where do you think the term came from?
    the beatles were emo. the deftones were emo. all the 80's michael bolton, brian adams, light fm people were emo.

    i realize it's a specific style of music these days. but it's really not. that's the point of this thread i think. besides acoustic stuff like dashboard, the spill canvas, onelinedrawing, etc....the true 'emo' bands. every other band has emo in them. thats why metalcore turned into 'screamo'. & most poppunk is being called emo too now.

    all i know is that most of the 'true emo' or screamo or whatever is not my cup of tea

    Are you actually trying to tell me Dashboard and onelinedrawing are "true" emo bands? :squint:

    no. but by today's standards. that acoustic type of whiny sing-along rock is what's really known as emo.

    Neither of those bands are emo...it's short for emotional hardcore, and bands like Taking Back Sunday/Dashboard Confessional just aren't that.
