This group is to promote to all the idiots not knowing what screamo is and tagging every band that has screaming in it screamo.

Everyone always thinks when a band screams it's screamo when in reality almost none of the well known bands today aren't. I've heard about My Chemical Romance, The Used, Bring Me The Horizon, Blessthefall, Atreyu, Haste the Day, The Devil Wears Prada, In Flames, Sonic Syndicate, Job For a Cowboy, and the list goes on even when they're a genre not even close to being related as screamo get treated as screamo.

If you think the way the public in general treats screamo as a genre that represents every type of music that screams even a little bit, this group is for you.

IF YOU WANT A BAND ADDED and/or one taken off, please suggest it by messaging me or the shoutbox, especially if the band is a real screamo band

This group is made to defend real screamo/emo for being the real deal and not all these bands that get accused for being screamo/emo when they really aren't.

At the same time I want to defend all the metal bands out there because people need to learn that they have their own genre and that genre isn't screamo. Mostly likely it's really Post-hardcore, Hardcore, Metalcore, Deathcore, Nu Metal, or Hardcore punk.


If you are confused about the differences between what's really screamo, I hope this helps:

Screamo is a genre of music which predominantly evolved from hardcore punk, among other genres, in the early 1990s. The term “screamo” was initially applied to a more aggressive offshoot of real emo that developed in San Diego in 1991, which used short, chaotically executed songs which grafted “spastic intensity to willfully experimental dissonance and dynamics,” often with a political message. In the early 2000s, the genre name began to describe a different, slower and less dissonant style that borrowed from alternative rock and sometimes metal. The term’s application to the “second wave” is controversial among fans and practitioners of the earlier style. One musician observed that the term “has been kind of tainted in a way, especially in the States.” This latter type of music can be found using the screamo tag on last.fm.

The bands that tend to get called and mistagged as screamo are actually , , , , , , , , , and/or depending on what you listen to and all are different in it's own way.

    The bands which get mistagged as Screamo can actually just be Pop too. There's lots of such kind in there, Atreyu is one example.

    You waste time classifying what is and what is not SCREAMO? Screamo is a commercial name. Then genre is hardcore and post-hardcore, keeping relations with punk "lifestyle" and genre....

    I don't listen longer to screamo anymore, but I really know the difference between REAL screamo and UNREAL screamo.

    Because of this I started calling rap, "rappo" and pop, "singo".

    Well, I said they *COULD* be considered screamo. I'm not saying that if Henry Rollins had screamed in Black Flag then Black Flag would be screamo, it just seems to me that by saying that hardcore punk w/ screaming isn't screamo is like saying rock and roll w/ acoustics isn't rock.

    Just because screamo is a type of hardcore with screaming doesn't mean every type of hardcore with screaming is screamo. All apples are fruits but not all fruits are apples.

    Also, I'm pretty sure that since Screamo is just a more aggressive and often times melodic offshoot of Hardcore Punk, that if a Hardcore band screamed they *could* be considered screamo.
