Emotional Hardcore
scene and the late 90's
Screamo scene. What is
known by " Midwest
Emo " is nothing but
Alternative Rock with
questionable real emo
influence. When people
try to argue that bands
like My Chemical
Romance are not real
emo, while saying that
Sunny Day Real Estate
is, I can't help not to
cringe because they are
just as fake emo as My
Chemical Romance
(plus the
pretentiousness). Real
emo sounds
ENERGETIC, POWERFUL
and somewhat
HATEFUL. Fake emo is
weak, self pity and a
failed attempt to direct
energy and emotion into
music. Some examples
of REAL EMO are Pg 99,
Rites of Spring, Cap n
Jazz (the only real emo
band from the midwest
scene) and Loma Prieta.
Some examples of FAKE
EMO are American
Football, My Chemical
Romance and Mineral
EMO BELONGS TO
HARDCORE NOT TO
INDIE, POP PUNK, ALT
ROCK OR ANY OTHER
MAINSTREAM GENRE
