Post How do YOU classify EMO?
There seems to be a lot of different ways people refer to band's being "EMO". I've heard the craziest things like hearing that Meshuggah is emo, or Slipknot is emo, or Killswitch Engage is emo.


Dunno. What do you think? explain. I think that it is interesting how we all have different perspectives how to "label" and "judge" music whether it be because of knowledge or contempt.



I believe emo music is classifiable by target group and lyrics. If the music was made to sympathize with depressed 13 year olds, that's my definition of emo. The type of singer doesn't matter to me. It's just the lyrics and target audience. The focus of lyrics is "no one understands us", 'no one understands us so imma kill myself, "she cuts herself so I like her", "She doesn't like me so I cut myself".


Black metal, "She doesn't like me, so I will kill her and fornicate with her remains and then put her on the grill, call over a couple friends, have a cold one and watch football."


The last one was tongue in cheek by the way, but yeah.

Emo is "Bring Me The Horizon", their fans and every other band trying to be like them.

Skinny blue/black jeans, Red DocMartins, MASSIVE black fringe over one or both eyes, hair also dyed black or bleached with the fringe still, small penises I guess, bands with horrible high pitched whiny screaming and reeeeaally gay singing, they cry alot too, they "love" their girlfriends and boyfriends after only going out together for 2 weeks, they're usually bisexual, the lyrics are always about girls and how angry they are at "love". Oh yeah and THEY MAKE ME THROW UP THE DIRTY SCUMBAGS! YUK! Liverpool is full of them.

Death to aaaaall emo's! :evil:

Emo drummers are pretty talented actually. Probably the most talented in emo bands are the drummers.


And, man, I'm going to have to get new nipples after this is all over. :(

Well, "duh"! :lol:

FWIW, I think the emoness of something is directly proportional to the amount of eyeliner, whininess and general wearing of clothes I wouldn't be seen dead in. But I'm an old-skool rocker. :twisted:

True, 'cus I am still to find a emo guitarist (minus yourself that is :D ) whose playing I really dig. I dunno, I don't bitch on emos, but I don't find emo music interesting at all. The emo wave is like the LA 80's wave of this decade.

well it tends to be that in most modern bands whether its emo or not the drummers are always the most technically/musically proficient.

i guess for pgmpower, for me the whole bring me the horizon thing is interesting.

I definitely wouldnt call their music emo, but they dress really emo.

I would say there is definitely some gray area, and the line between emo and not emo is not definitive.

Like bean said, killswitch has a lot of chorus's that sound emo, but i wouldnt call them an emo band, nor do they dress emo.

Some people might hear vermillion pt 2 as slipknot's first song and they would automatically classify slipknot as emo.

As for meshuggah, i cant think of any reason why they can be classified as emo.


i guess the only safe band to call emo is probably my chemical romance.

but, if someone is wearing tight pants, they are probably pretty close.

that is kind of true, with so many popping up all at once, and pretty much every one of them is scoring some kind of record deal, even though there are a bunch of random indie labels that are run by the band members.

Also the fact of the extreme dress style, and how the fans also dress the same way.

What was the wave in the 90s? grunge?

I don't believe that a drummer should have to play 16th/32nd notes constantly to be called "good". I guess we just have different definitions of what a good drummer is. Do you really think blast beats and double bass would fit 30 Seconds to Mars's music? I dunno about that. If all music had blast beats and crazy fast stuff, it wouldn't make it better. Would a funk chart sound any better with crazy double bass? no. Unless, you really like it like that haha.

This might be personal taste, but I prefer groove/taste over crazy blast beats/fills/technical skill. Bands like Meshuggah/Underoath/Killswitch happen to combine the both and I love that.

Mars Volta do a great job of that as well. Their drummer is a beast, and the singer has the most emo voice out there + tight pants. Although, I don't think I'd call the emo. A lot of people classify them as emo because of the pants and voice.

sorry to bust your nuts, BUT, the Epitaph album was not recorded by Marco, he joined Necro for a tour or so. That drummer was Hannes Grossmann who I thought ruled. Marco was sick live by the way, especially the ending to Diminished to b where he played in really sick time sigs...

Glad to see the NECROPHAGIST love here though!!!!!!
