Emo is a style of rock music typically characterized by melodic musicianship and expressive, often confessional lyrics. It originated in the mid-1980s hardcore punk movement of Washington, D.C., where it was known as “emotional hardcore” or “emocore” and pioneered by bands such as Rites of Spring and Embrace.

    Anybody who thinks My Chemical Romance are emo clearly has never listened to any of their albums. Just showing you ignorance. I've seen them live lots of times and out of the first page of "top emo artists" of the 46 bands on there, i never listen to any of them except MCR. They couldn't be further away from either definitions of emo if they tried, either the original 80s meaning or the modern meaning. MCR have spanned almost every Rock sub-genre out there. It's just what they did, they changed their style with every album. Post-hardcore, Pop-punk, Goth-rock, Alternative, just plain old-fashioned Rock, they've done the lot. But the lazy emo term sticks with them from people who never actually listened to them.

    I've tried to abnegate this term from my vocabulary. The genre is so hopelessly confused and stigmatized, it fails to serve any function in effective communication.

    I think a good name for a emo band is "sometimes i cut myself" then call the first album "another slice of skin" i liek it
