And quite possibly you "emo kids" will get a definition of emo and emo bands thats true. So I hope in the end this list helps everyone!


    Punk
    Description:
    Code:
    The punk rock and culture movement began in the late
    1960's. It formed from pre, or now, proto-punk bands such as The New York
    Dolls and Velvet Underground. This type of rock was very minimalist and it
    started in the underground streets of New York. Punk became less
    minimalistic, more obvious, and fashionable when it commenced in the UK.
    This started bands like The Sex Pistols and The Clash who performed a way
    more abrasive and underlying punk rock. With the commencement of these
    bands punk rock triggered millions of youth because of the relevant message
    it instills. Its rebellious, different, and apathetic attitude towards social norms
    and government stirred the water for many to begin their own punk band.
    This culture changed millions of lives and inspired the hearts of the youth in
    the world for generations. Hopefully it will continue to inspire and prevail the
    positive message it always has, forever. (by Anti-Prefix)

    Pop Punk
    Description:
    Code:
    A lot more use of melody than in normal punk rock. The music isn't
    generally quite as fast or heavy, but it's usually along the same lines.
    There's a lot more singing and a lot less screaming/yelling. Pop-punk is
    more about the fun side of music rather that the political ethics attached
    to punk. Not to say that some pop-punk bands aren't political, but it's on
    a much smaller scale. (by DrGolovaCroxby)

    Hardcore
    Description:
    Code:
    Hardcore is punk influenced music that is usually harder and faster than
    punk. Unlike punk’s political lyrics, hardcore lyrics usually focus more on
    social aspects and things everybody can relate to. Hardcore is considered to
    have been started by Black Flag in the late 70s and remains one of the most
    popular sub genres today, with huge amounts of hardcore fans worldwide.

    80s Hardcore/Hardcore-Punk

    Description:
    Code:
    80's Hardcore is a mix of the classic '77 punk sound and
    elements of both metal and thrash. Most Hardcore bands were formed by
    suburban kids in the late '70's and early '80's shortly after the initial punk
    boom died down. These kids made the scenes big by taking there bands to
    cities like Boston, N.Y.C., Washington, and L.A. '80's Hardcore relates closer
    to '77 punk sound than today's more metallic hardcore. Straight Edge, an idea
    most believe to be thought up by hardcore hero Ian MacKaye of Minor Threat
    and Teen Idles, was a big part of the scene and is still prevalent today. Some
    bands recognized as creating and/or popularizing the 80's hardcore sound are
    Bad Brains, and Minor Threat, Black Flag, and Gang Green. (by sonicreducer)

    Anarcho Punk

    Description:
    Code:
    Fuck the government. An ideal commonly
    associcated with punk from people who don't know punk, but most punks just
    think the government needs some reform. Anarcho punk is all about anarchy
    and liberty. Every anarcho punk band will have lyrics about total freedom and
    true liberty for all. IN the early 70's there was a massive increase in the
    interest and popularity of anarchism, mind you it never got popular, but it got
    slightly more popular than it was, and many punk bands started taking up the
    idea into their songs. Anarcho bands typically have a really seriously no-skill
    all brilliant lyrics type basis. Anarcho bands focus less on the music and more
    on passing importnat messages across to listeners. Besides strong beliefs in
    anarchism, anarcho punk typically has strong feelings of anti-capitalism,
    anti-war and sometimes, feminist and animal rights ideas. Crass was probably
    the most influential of all anarcho bands and it is shown in their brilliant
    anti-government, anti-war lyrics. Other major bands include, Subhumans,
    Aus-Rotten, Citizen Fish, Discharge, Flux of Pink Indians, and surprisingly,

    Ska

    Description:
    Code:
    Ska, the precursor to reggae, started in Jamaica in the late
    1950s. Ska is the predominant genre of music listened to by the rudeboy,
    mod, and skinhead movements. It combines elements of many kinds of music
    such as calypso, mento, and jazz, just to name a few. The popularity of ska
    declined in the 1970s, but then had a revival of popularity in the 1980s (two
    tone/second wave ska), and then again in the 1990s (ska-punk/third wave
    ska). Interesting Ska Fact: Guitarist Ernest Ranglin said that "the offbeat
    guitar scratching that he and other musicians played was referred to as 'skat!
    skat! skat!'" (by SkaBandit)Animal Chin

    Traditional Ska

    Description:
    Code:
    Traditional, or first wave Ska, started in the 50s. Jamaican
    music was vastly influenced by American R&B; artists such as Fats Domino
    and others. When R&B was less popular in the 60s, thus harder to get a hold
    of in Jamaica, artists began imitating this sound. Traditional Ska is best known
    for the placement of the guitar accented guitar and piano rhythms on the
    upbeats. As American music changed, so did this newfound genre of music.
    Traditional Ska became slower and smoother in response to the change of
    American music, and Rocksteady was born. Rocksteady remained popular until
    the emergence of Reggae in 1968. (by SkaBandit)

    Two-Tone Ska

    Description:
    Code:
    The Two Tone Ska era was named as so because of the
    similarly titled record company, 2 Tone Records, formed by Jerry Dammers,
    keyboardist of The Specials. Two Tone Ska started in the UK, and was a
    major relief of racial tension between black and white people. Traditional Ska's
    unique rhythms came together with Punk-Rock's lyrics and guitar chords to
    form Two Tone Ska. Two Tone is generally characterized by faster tempos,
    and the integration of horns. As Two Tone promoted racial unity, the
    checkerboard pattern was adopted as a symbol of Two Tone Ska. It was
    common for Two Tone artists to cover Traditional Ska songs, released in the
    50s and 60s. In this way, artists like Prince Buster were receiving more money
    in royalties than they had ever received from releasing records. (by SkaBandit)

    Ska-Punk/Ska-Core

    Description:
    Code:
    As the Two-Tone sound moved across the Atlantic Ocean
    to reach the east coast of North America, elements of rock and punk were
    added, resulting in Ska-Punk. Despite the differences in the actual sounds of
    Two-Tone and Ska-Punk, both genres embody the spirit of unity, tolerance,
    and peace. Ska-Punk sounds range from the heavier punk sound of bands like
    The Flatliners and Assorted Jelly Beans, to the lighter more Trad sound of
    bands like The Toasters, The Planet Smashers, and The Slackers. The main
    influence of course was Two Tone Ska, but the integration resulted in some
    Ska-Punk bands not using horns. (by SkaBandit)

    Emo

    Description:
    Code:
    DC Scene: This is where the emotional hardcore scene
    began. Bands such as Rites of Spring and Embrace took hardcore punk to the
    next level. The vocal style became much more emotional, ranging from yelling
    to full blown screaming at times. Another significant part of the early emo
    scene were the introspective lyrics. Bands sang about things that they
    themselves face. Moss Icon is the best example of this emo scene. Moss
    Icon's vocal style ranged from spoken word to bouts of screaming. This style
    influenced many bands that followed them, and became an emo trademark. In
    '85 the scene began to expand and many bands started to catch on, which is
    why 1985 was called "revolution summer." This revolution of hardcore punk
    soon spread to places such as San Diego, and the Midwest. San Diego
    Scene: The San Diego expanded on the DC scene by adding even more
    intensity. Most of the bands form this scene were on Gravity Records, and
    pure chaos. Antioch Arrow best demonstrated this, often having haphazard
    instrumentation, but intensifying the vocals. This scene soon influenced the
    modern wave of emotional hardcore, often called "screamo." Midwest Scene:
    While the San Diego was energizing the emo scene, bands emerging from the
    Midwest took a more laid back approach. You could tell they were influenced
    by more than just the emo scene. The vocals were still emotional, but not
    nearly as screamy. The music was much quieter instead of the raging twin
    guitars. The midwest scene was more of a blend between emo and indie. (by deadohiosky9)

    D-Beat

    Description:
    Code:
    D-beat is a form of hardcore punk developed in the early
    80's. It's name is derived from the band Discharge. In fact, many bands after
    Discharge have gone to the point of copying Discharge exactly, stealing their
    album covers and even the way they draw up their name. D-beat itself refers
    to the very basic drum beat almost always used in D-beat songs. D-beat has
    a simple one-two-oneone-two drum beat and usually has very simple guitar
    riffs that only consist of three or four notes. Many D-beat bands have
    emerged from Scandinavia, Japan, and Brazil. Scandinavian D-beat focused
    more on pounding out fast and hard noise, while Japanese D-beat prefered to
    pay more detail to melodies. More recently, bands like Wolfbrigade and
    Avskum have begun to take the old D-beat sound and fuse it with dark, hard
    hitting melodies. (by Subvert_bassist)

    Anarcho Punk

    Description:
    Code:
    Fuck the government. An ideal commonly
    associcated with punk from people who don't know punk, but most punks just
    think the government needs some reform. Anarcho punk is all about anarchy
    and liberty. Every anarcho punk band will have lyrics about total freedom and
    true liberty for all. IN the early 70's there was a massive increase in the
    interest and popularity of anarchism, mind you it never got popular, but it got
    slightly more popular than it was, and many punk bands started taking up the
    idea into their songs. Anarcho bands typically have a really seriously no-skill
    all brilliant lyrics type basis. Anarcho bands focus less on the music and more
    on passing importnat messages across to listeners. Besides strong beliefs in
    anarchism, anarcho punk typically has strong feelings of anti-capitalism,
    anti-war and sometimes, feminist and animal rights ideas. Crass was probably
    the most influential of all anarcho bands and it is shown in their brilliant
    anti-government, anti-war lyrics. Other major bands include, Subhumans,
    Aus-Rotten, Citizen Fish, Discharge, Flux of Pink Indians, and surprisingly,

    Street Punk

    Description:
    Code:
    The street punk music genre started with the Oi! music
    scene in the late 1970s and early 1980s. It started as a youth music style
    with songs about tales of the street crew or gang life, police violence, easy
    girls, and teenage drunk mayhem. Streetpunk bands of the mid '80s include
    The Skeptix, Abrasive Wheels, and Attak. Today's street punk is dominated
    by A Global Threat, Lower Class Brats, The Virus, The Unseen, and Cheap
    Sex. Their lyrics often talk about having fun at shows, unity, police
    oppression, social problems, anti-establishment and the punk scene itself.
    Hevily Influencing streetpunk labels include Punkcore, TKO, and
    RodentPopsicle. (by TheivesandBastards)

    Post-Punk/New Wave

    Description:
    Code:
    After punk left it's mark in the late 70s, many bands felt
    the desire to carry on the ideals and ethics of punk. But instead of playing
    the same music as their punk forefathers, these bands decided to try
    something else. They took punk to it's natural progression, taking influences
    from disco, dub, glam, and art-rock, and creating a whole new more artsy
    genre. Something else that came out of this progression was New Wave.
    New Wave was the counter to post-punk, in that instead of being artsy and
    free-form, it was very pop-influenced and structured. (by BrainToad)

    Metalcore

    Description:
    Code:
    Metalcore, as you can tell by the name, is a fusion of Metal
    and Hardcore. It's more on the Hardcore side with Metal influences. Most
    metalcore has very fast tempos and lots of screaming. Usually, a Metalcore
    song will have no obvious song structure, but most do have breakdowns.
    Many of said breakdowns have the palm-muted "Jud Jud Jud" sound with very
    low-key chords. Metalcore, in comparison to Hardcore, is definately more
    complex in terms of music writings, and the musicians definitely show their
    talent more than Hardcore musicians. To add to that, double bass is present
    in almost any Metalcore song. Suggested bands are: Converge, Botch,
    Coalesce, Turmoil, All Else Failed, The Red Chord, and Every Time I Die. (by Billy)

    Melodic Hardcore

    Description:
    Code:
    Melodic Hardcore is an offshoot of the Hardcore genre. It,
    in some cases, blurs the line between Hardcore and Pop-Punk. It is also
    commonly mistaken for Emo or Screamo. Melodic Hardcore basically has all the
    elements of Hardcore; mainly: fast-paced tempo, blast beats, and so on. But,
    there are key differences between the two. Oftentimes, it's not all screaming
    in a Melodic Hardcore song. There's lots of singing involved, which is partly
    where the term "Melodic" is coined. Also, instead of full power chords (which
    are still used), Melodic Hardcore guitarists use octaves to get that "melodic"
    sound even more defined. There is usually a solid song structure in place,
    making Melodic Hardcore easier to listen to by many people. Suggested bands
    are: A Wilhelm Scream, Strike Anywhere, Rise Against, Marathon, Paint It
    Black, None More Black, Crime in Stereo and Smoke or Fire. (by Billy)

    Crust

    Description:
    Code:
    Crust is an evolved form of hardcore punk. It has been described as
    apocalyptic hardcore with a tinge of metal. Its lyrics are usually
    very political in nature, dealing with everything from squatting, to
    veganism, to anarchy, and to animal rights. Taking elements from
    anarcho and grind, crust bands have come up with their own original
    sound, which can vary from slow and sludgy, to blisteringly fast. Some
    early bands include Antischism, Amebix, and Deviated Instinct, who
    originally coined the term "crust" as it was originally called
    "stenchcore". Current crust bands include World Burns To Death, Behind
    Enemy Lines, Hellshock, and Subvert Citizens. (by Subvert_bassist & JAtomic)

    Screamo

    Description:
    Code:
    The modern bands who are still playing music similar to the
    early emo scene are often labeled as "screamo". They are essentially just
    modern emo bands. The vocal style includes much more screaming rather than
    a lot of spoken word. The lyrics tend to be more poetic, and still (if not more)
    introspective. A lot of bands such as Combawoundedveteran and Orchid took
    the San Diego scene's more chaotic approach, which started another trend
    amongst other bands in this scene. This is the current wave of the emo
    scene. (by deadohiosky9)

    You have anarcho punk twice.

    And about the emo thing, I figured that I'd post this message here because your ska description gives me the best simile.

    Everybody argues about what emo is, yelling that bands like Taking Back Sunday and My Chemical Romance aren't emo... Well, I still hold strong on this, and have done research to back myself up when I say those people are wrong wrong wrong.

    As Underground mentioned with ska, ska lost popularity and then came back in new forms like two-tone (second wave) and ska-punk (third wave). Emo is the same way. Emo started like Underground described it with bands like Rites of Spring and Grey Matter, and then kind of lost itself, it came back in a second wave in 1994 with bands like Boy's Life and Cap'n Jazz, then in about 2000, emo came in a third wave with bands like Taking Back Sunday, The Starting Line, and My Chemical Romance.

    So quit bitching about it. Like ska, emo has changed and is now what you hear on the radio and what most people call "emo."

    Oi

    Description:
    Code:
    Oi! was a big time sub genre of punk in the 70's and early
    80's. It emerged when many punk bands were moving towards a more artsy,
    technical standpoint on punk (i.e. Wire, Devo, Gang of Four) and some punks
    felt they needed to stick to the more down-to-earth original sounds of punk.
    Originally it was referred to as "street-punk" or "reality-punk" because they
    felt that this genre was what punk was really about. The name Oi! is often
    thought to have come from the Cockney Rejects song "Oi! Oi! Oi!" Oi! is based
    around working-cl**** street level type punks who aren't looking for
    artsy-fartsy type punk, they just want it straight up and what punk was
    really all about from the start. Oi! lyrics are often about supporting the
    working-cl**** having fun, and unity between all people. Oi! was a major
    favorite of skinheads, because they really defined the working-class punk.
    Major Oi! bands were the 4-Skins, Cock Sparrer, Sham 69 and the Business.

    Grindcore

    Description:
    Code:
    Grindcore is a very intense genre that is the furthest
    expansion of Hardcore Punk. Grindcore stands for Hardcore that grinds. It
    started out in Great Britain with the band Napalm Death and it's genre
    defining album Scum. This beginning sound was million mile per hour political
    protests from teenagers screaming their throats out. Over the years the
    genre has expanded and mated with the metal genre death metal and thus
    commercialized the genre somewhat for bands that took this mating and
    adapted it to their sound. Though nowadays there are some bands who are
    still true to the original sound of a warp speed revolution. This is musical
    holocaust with pure decimation in the fore. (by whiteminority)

    Description:
    Code:
    Power Violence is a sub genre of grindcore, and contains
    shrieked, high pitched vocals, very fast guitar, and very fast drums, using
    blast beats very often. Songs are played at such break-neck speed that
    power violence songs are often no more than 1 minute long, and are at times
    as short as 20 seconds long. Power Violence was pioneered in the 80's, from
    bands such as Infest, and Siege. It had it's greatest explosion in the early
    90's, often refered to as the second wave of power violence, containing
    bands such as **** on the Beach, Charles Bronson, and Spazz. Bands such as
    Capitalist Casualties, Man Is the Bastard, and No Comment were called the
    first wave of power violence. (by Skrunnch)

    Proto-Punk

    Description:
    Code:
    Proto-Punk is a genre to describe the musicians who were
    prior to the explosion of punk rock and who were the main influences of Punk
    Rock. Most Proto-Punk performers were influenced by Rock & Roll and Garage
    Rock as the Proto-Punk sound is similar but with a punk attitude and more
    provocative lyrics. There is a collection of bands like the Velvet Underground,
    MC5, New York Dolls, The Stooges, Patti Smith, The Dictators and many more
    that were making their contributions to punk with their look, attitude and
    non-commercial music. (by white_riot)

    Psychobilly

    Description:
    Code:
    You around in the 50's? Were you the black leather jacket
    greaser of the school? Well if you're that old and you've still got some kick
    left, check out pyschobilly. Coming during the 80's Rockabilly Revival, some
    guys thought they'd be better off with a real punk mix into their music. Major
    contributors to the starting of the scene are the Cramps and Reverend Horton
    Heat. Psychobilly is based around small drum sets, stand up slap-bass and an
    old 50's guitar tone along with wailing vocals typically about pretty scary
    stuff. It's got a fast beat, it'll remind you of Grease and you'll be able to
    appreciate the click of that upright bass. Psychobilly is fairly rare as far as
    local scenes go unless you got to the west coast where it seems you'll find
    greasers fairly usually. (by TheivesandBastards)

    Anti-Flags stlye just doesnt really go with Anarcho I suppose and for the fact their more pop punk now then with Die For Your Goverment. They fall into alot of categories now that I think about it.

    Setup:

    Deck: Zero Chris Cole Reaper
    Trucks: Thunder Jamie Thomas
    Bearings: HKD Abec 7
    Wheels: Spitfire 51mm Bryan Herman
    Hardware: I have no idea
    Grip Tape: MOB grip
    Shoes: Heritic 2s (black/red/gray)
