What used to happen to creative hardcore punk musicians when they got sick of thrashing around and destroying the stage. Emotional lyrics, "DC"-sound, with less strain and gravel thrown into the vocals. Well, that was when it started in the mid-80's.

Nearly died during the mid-90's, but had a revival in the late 90's and early 2000's, especially with At The Drive-In's "Relationship of Command" and "In/Casino/Out". ATDI explored thier hardcore punk roots, with occasionally strained vocals and screaming, while sticking mostly to the DC sound and high register singing of emocore.

Further extrapolation of these hardcore and hardcore punk roots back into emocore leads to music such as Alexisonfire, Thursday and EP-era Saosin. These incorporate extensive use of screaming and hardcore-styled riffs, as well as soft, twinkly, DC-sounding moments. Many argue whether such bands are emocore, post hardcore or screamo, but my scene refers to them as second-wave emocore, while first-wave emocore died with At The Drive-In.
"All these south-Ontario emocore bands sound more and more like screamo to me." CORRECT

"Alexisonfire used to be screamo, but 'Watch Out!' is definately second-wave emocore." CORRECT

"The Used aren't pop, they're emocore!" INCORRECT
