    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)

    Emo formally known as emotional hardcore is now what we might aswell call in its 3rd wave. Its become more pop punk bands with sad lyrics thats are labeled as emo. Liebherk gave the best stuff.

    emo is a type of music always thought to involve the scene "wrist slitting" wich i have found to be untrue. Ive met tons of people who slit their wrists... retarded in my oppinion.... but only one or 2 of them listened to emo.. the rest of the cutters were for metal and hard core rock.... anywayz emo is short for emotional.. simple as that... just a type of rock that takes it to the next level

    basicly, everybody shut the fuck up saying you know what emo is unless you are myself, underground network, liebherk, dnb&dub, Klausfloride, or actually know what the fuck you're talking about... we've had too much shit on this forum about that genre already.

    However... Mr.Network, third wave? i guess if you count modern "emo" bands and the screEMO style emo bands as two waves it would make sense... but what are you saying the three waves are?

    Well I got this idea from someone else . Like the begining was the first wave of course, then when bands like Jawbreaker were getting big I think back in the 90s was second wave. And now its 3rd wave. Its just easier for me to say 3rd wave bands suck so I do it like that.

    And you are an idiot. Learn about a genre before dissing it. Or just maybe read the posts in front of you before posting so you realise that the subject has already been takin care of.
