The saying Emo Punk, or Emo is Punk is use by people to show others that Emo is a sub-genre of Hardcore Punk.
Person two. Why are you saying that?
Person one. To show others that Emo is Punk music.
Person two. Oh so Emo is Punk.
Person one. Duh yeah; now u got it.
emo - short for "emotional." Emo is a broad title that covers a lot of different styles of emotionally-charged punk rock. Emo is a sub genre of hardcore punk music.
The The first wave (1985–1994) of emo music came from bands like Rites of Spring, Moss Icon, Nation of Ulysses, Dag Nasty, Shudder To Think, Fire Party, Marginal Man, and Gray Matter,
The second wave (1994–2000) had bands such as The Get Up Kids, Jimmy Eat World and Texas Is the Reason.
The third wave (2000–Present) has bands such as AFI, Alexisonfire, A Static Lullaby, Brand New, Coheed and Cambria, Fall Out Boy, Finch, From Autumn To Ashes, From First To Last, Funeral for a Friend, Hawthorne Heights, Matchbook Romance, My Chemical Romance, Silverstein, Something Corporate, The Starting Line, Taking Back Sunday, The Used, Thrice, and Thursday.
One of the biggest problems of emo today is punk has abandon the music and culture/movement it created. Although many of these emo bands emerged from legitimate punk rock scenes, they grew to be despised by veteran fans of punk who considered the genre to be fake. So it leads emo to be used by the mainstream music industry and society. Many punks are judgmental and critical of emo just the way people of the past have been of other punk music and punk movents. These veteran punk are in no way different.
That is not what punk is suppose to be about. Its suppose to be oppen to diffrent thing and individualism. There is problems with emo music and the emo movent but unstead of veteran punks being help to these trouble teens, They become critical and judgmental.
If this is what punk has become then maybe it should be dead. Punk instead of being help to emo music and the emo movent it has become apart of the problem in many ways.
Lets keep true punk and true punk ideals alive.
Guy two. He must be an Emo Punk.
Many emos attempt to make a direct connection between punk rock and the flacid emo trend. While "emotional hardcore" punk rock did exist in the early 1980s, the word "emotional" is a term that refered to the entire emotional spectrum and has nothing to do with today's unoriginal, cookie-cutter, fashion/musical trend.
Saying someone is an emo punk is like saying an animal is a monkey-fish.
