    ~Hmm~

    Strange...

    When I first read the topic,
    the first thing I thought of when reading "Emo"
    is Emo Phillips, the comedian.

    There is NO way Sunny Day Real Estate is emo!? I haven't heard their recent stuff having said that though. They are supposed to be grunge...

    emo is just another overly-gerneralized term.. like punk, or pop... lol.. that's what I think anyway.

    WHO CARES!
    Don't waste your time listening to that garbage,
    It's just for guys who try to get some, by crying over their girlfriend or whatever, it's not even music.

    Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but please don't belittle other users for their music preference.

    Emo is nothing but a waterd down punk rock. I went from Emocore to HxC, and I can't believe I was even into that stuff. But otherwise, I vote dashboard.

    i think most emo sounds identical, but when they get it right its sounds ultimate. Someone should listen to some UnderOath, theyre emo that sounds good

    Emo Phillips? I totally thought of Elmo from Sesame Street. Oh my god, I can imagine him with an electric guitar strapped on his shoulder, just rockin' 80's neo-classical style. . .lol

    "Elmo is ready to rock. Are you?"

    Don't anyone get me wrong, here: I listen to music with a very open mind (and ears), but I don't like "emo" rock much,

    I seriously don't understand this whining-cute-guy-singer-songwriter craze. "im not a perfect person," "i'm sorry, i'm sorry, i'm sorry. . ." If I want sensitive, i'll listen to an early Mozart piano sonata, or a Haydn piece, or even one of my own compositions (I know exactly how that guy feels! lol).

    And I voted dashboard confessional (Not to be confused with the HBO show Taxicah Confessional. lol)
