Originally a music movement in Washington D.C. combining punk with even faster guitar riffs and screaming, with bands like Rites of Spring and Embrace, emo, or "emocore", became popular on the west coast as well. Most emo bands of this time for breaking guitars on stage, screaming out lyrics, and doing anything else that got people's attention. Basically Jimmy Urine, on crack. Emo's second wave was hit up with a softer more melodic sound with more riffs and songs that were all incredibly long. This came to be with bands like Sunny Day Real Estate, Jawbreaker (which later become Jets to Brazil), and Texas is the Reason. Emo went mainstream and got more people's attention with more popular bands today. These bands include Dashboard Confessional and Phantom Planet. Nowadays, it is incredibly hard to know what true emo is as most people think that popular bands like Fall Out Boy, Panic at the Disco, and My Chemical Romance are emo. However, all of these bands have denied such claims. "emo is bullshit, we're the next Radiohead" -Brendon Urie (lead singer for Panic at the Disco). Emo is now often associated with Screamo. However, this is typically untrue. Hawthorne Heights is under much debate and can be seen as somewhat emo. With songs like Niki FM which follow a second wave emo pattern.

Some bands that are NOT emo include:
Senses Fail
Bullet for My Valentine
Aiden
Hopes Die Last
Alexisonfire
Underoath
From First to Last
The Used

The original style of emo was simply whatever you could find at your local thrift store. Combining the style of your grandpa, with that of a nerd.

There are many more but these are just a few bands that many believe to be emo. Sorry to all the 13 year old girls who actually thought they were truly emo.
