Screamo/Emo.

Most of you ignorant furs probably came to this thread to bash what we all know as the black skinny jeans, thick bangs, and eyeliner look. I don't blame you. Talk about misconceptions around the furry fandom, the screamo/emo community contains a horrible rep.

Let me define screamo/emo for you, which is best described by what it isn't. Screamo/emo isn't the aforementioned, trendy description. It is a community/genre/music scene overflowing with passion and self-expression. It is derived from punk, and was most prevalent during the 90's. The genre also maintains a joke name known as skramz. Personally, I think that name is hilarious and awesome.

Education video (for those of you who say tl;dr): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3nZAA9C0XU

. . .

Some screamo bands: Saetia (pronounced say-sha), Orchid, Pg. 99, City of Caterpillar, Comadre (more so punk), Circle takes the square, Jerome's Dream, Ampere, Kodan Armada, I wrote haikus about cannibalism in your yearbook, Funeral Diner, I Would Set Myself on Fire for You, Swing Kids, 1905, Majority Rule, Wow Owls!

Some emo bands: Cap'n Jazz, I Hate Myself, Maximilian Colby, Indian Summer, Age Sixteen, Suis La Lune, Broken Hearts Are Blue

There are of course many more, but here are some to start off with. Oh yes, I never said that real screamo sounded good to all ears. Some of it still sounds like dissonant, cacophonous noise. Personally, I am in love with the genre.

Emos and scene kids are pussies, as is their shitty music. And not the good kind of pussies, either.

That is all.

Kthx.

Also super pumped for Circle Takes the Square's new material. I got to see them a couple months ago at a basement show with We Were Skeletons, Kilgore Trout, and a few other bands. :cool::cool::cool:

The way the first track on their new ep flows into the next one is just so good. You're like okay this is pretty cool and slow and all and then they kick the door off its hinges.

emo is short for "emotive hardcore" and has NOTHING to do with scene kids at all.

The music is derived from hardcore punk and combines dynamic guitar playing, chaotic and beautiful vocals. It has nothing to do with the horse shit you would find in hot topic these days. You seem to have a big misunderstanding of all of this, learn up.

If I wanted to listen to whiny little bitches scream like whiny little bitches with background instruments, I'd go kick children in the face while playing a guitar.

How does it feel know that you will never have an understanding on beautiful music ?

Meh, I would call it far from beautiful. Hey, Black Metal's is probably the closest thing to beautiful I've ever heard, with Wintersun's debut aswell ofcourse.

Also what Thingymabob said.
