    thursday needs to be taken off the poll, i'm insulted as a fan of theirs that they are even being grouped with these other bands.

    None of them. The Smiths is by far the best band in the list though.

    Bands like Taking Back Sunday and Dashboard Confessional aren't emo.

    Emo doesn't stand for "emotional" or "emotional rock." It stands for "emotional hardcore."

    After Minor Threat broke up, many of the 80s hardcore bands were bored with their music. They started adding elements to it and eventually the music was still the same, but much more emotional.

    I highly reccommend the following emo bands:
    Rites of Spring (the first one)
    Fugazi
    Heroin
    Angel Hair
    City of Caterpillar
    Die Emperor! Die!
    Embrace
    Jawbreaker

    Dcowboys is right. Emo is not short for emotional. Nor is it short for emotional punk or emotional rock. Dashboard is not emo. None of those bands are. I'd say the closest might be Thursday? But they're post-hardcore.

    I'm always arguing with my friends over what emo is. At the end of the day who cares? People are always going to genre things differently. Anti-emos call me emo, but to anyone that calls themself emo I'm not.
    Emo is just the latest trend. Soon they'll realise how silly they look :rolleyes:
