all along the lines of Emo, but more emotionally charged music then emotionally charged lyrics. This means, their are often heavy guitars and the occasional screaming.

also known as Emo-Screamo

An early-mid 90s genre of music that combined post-hardcore and 80's emo. NOT to be confused with 'screamo' (meaning pop-punk bands that scream)
Examples include: Hot Water Music, Samiam, Mineral, Braid, Lifetime, Sunny Day Real Estate, Sense Field, Texas Is The Reason,etc

Examples DONT include: Finch, The Used, Story of The Year, Thursday

See emo.
That's so hardcore, it's emocore.

Style of music, mixed primarily of punk and metal. The word "emo" comes from emotional. The word "core" comes frm hardcore. Hardcore + Emotion = Emocore.
Emocore is my favorite style of music.

First look up "emo". Emocore is the hardest, most outrageous, and sometimes most annoying perversion of an otherwise quality subsect of punk rock. It should be noted that emocore may result from a poser trying too hard to be emo.
If anyone knows who "Strong Sad" is, he is a good example of such behavior.
That band was so emocore, they were almost too emo.
