Is it just me or have people gone to far with genres and subgenres these days? Does Emo even mean anything anymore? Can you really put Quicksand, Weezer, Jimmy Eat World, Fall Out Boy, and My Chemical Romance in the same genre? And don't even get me started on Screamo and Metalcore

I think genres are bullshit anyway. I think that if something sounds good to you, you should listen to it without worrying about what genre it is.

I love bands like Jawbreaker and Sunny Day Real Estate. And Fall Out Boy is a VERY guilty pleasure of mine (there old stuff was a helluva lot better tho) But most of this new shit can't be compared to the stuff of the late 80's early 90's.

Nah, Emo never meant anything and I still don't know what the hell it is.... music genres are dead as they were 20 years ago. New era.

Emo's been a genre since the -80's, with bands like Moss Icon, Rites of Spring and Indian Summer, and later bands like I Would Set Myself On Fire For You and Pesanteur.
Screamo's a genre too, the only subgenre to Emo, with such bands as Belle Epoque, Circle Takes The Square and If Footmen Tire You, What Will Horses Do?.
You'd think people on a board like this would know that, since Emo came from Punk music.

Yes, but Emo has become a very convoluted term, being used for everyone from Rites of Spring to Sunnyday Realestate to Weezer to My Chemical Romance to Thursday to Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. How can all these bands really be one genre? It seems to be a catch all for a lot of very mediocre music and what would have been called emo originally no longer fits in the genre. Just like Hardcore. It's hard to think of Minor Threat and Black Flag sharing a genre with Suicide Silence or Hatebreed

emo is a type of music id say, but ever since the word "emo" hit back in 05 or whenever it got all big, it was only about fashion. like the tight pants, hair, ect. but as for the genre of emo? i dont even knooow! i just thought it was bands that had really emotional lyrics/songs.

See, thats my point. Emo from the 80's and 90's, though covering a wide spread of sounds, meant music that was emotional and personal but in the last decade it has become nothing but a fashion fad and home to completely emotionless music about cutting and being sad because its cool not because they feel that way. Why must that be labeled as the same genre as the classic bands like Rites of Spring? And don't even get me started on the scene kids...

yea, its like they replaced it with this sad, sick, suicidal life style and named it "emo". in my opinion, i think that todays emo and the emotional music back then are two differnt things witn the same name.
also, people today call anyone with tight pants emo. that right there even explains my point! the majority of people see it as a fashion.

In a sense it does...but it has been altered and fucked with to the point pop-punk also has...and it's a shade of what it was.

My pointless opinion.... "Emo-core" was a description of emotional hardcore (Rites of Spring et al.) when I were a boy.... it did not mean "shit".... :shock:

Yes. Usually to label a band as "Emo" or "Emo-(insert main genre here)" just means that the particular band to which you are referring is more whiney than other bands. For example, Emo-core would mean that the band is basically hardcore, except more whiney.

That having been said I do have an affinity for Dead Poetic and Further Seems Forever that I can't explain.

I don't listen to Fall Out Boy or My Chemical Romance but from the songs I have heard from them I think that these two bands can't be in the same genre... FOB is not even music to me (no offence to people who like this band... but tastes are different). And My chemical Romance is depressive while FOB always has this happy tune to it (even when the lyrics aren't happy).
And yes marvelmite, people HAVE gone to far with genres. You can't even tell what's what anymore... everyday somebody invents a new genre. Well then, people, we should start inventing our own too!!! :lol:

And the term EMO (as much as I know) is a music genre, it's even a punk subgenre. However, in my opinion MTV fucked up the term EMO for good. Suddenly, emo turned into a word that describes fucked up teenagers that like to cut themselves. I don't think that's true. I mean, there are people that cut themselves (unfortunately) but EMO shouldn't be a term for them becease emo is a genre, not an adjective of description in grammar. Many people call different bands emo today, for example... I was watching this show on TV a few years ago and the girl that was hosting the show said that the bands H.I.M. and Slipknot were EMO! I laughed my fucking ass of when I heard her say that... as much as I know, H.I.M. is just regular MTV rock (they are not bad, I used to listen to them before... I even went to EXIT Fest to see them! :D) and Slipknot is some kind of nu metal... right? Anyway, the word emo has been totally degenerated these days and many people actually don't know that it is a genre. That's sad.

either way emo is quite dead, much more dead than punk. no one is staying with the original idea of emo and made it all about swooshy hair and wearing those gloves that have no fingers on them but go all the way up thier arms. i think emo has turned into a scene of posers where no one is at all emo. but fuck it, emo sucks and im glad it has finnaly died off. and dead poetic sucks great big monkey dick!
