Emo is a term that is short for emotive hardcore. Most people these days think that emo is strictly short for emotional, but this is false. If emo just meant emotional, wouldn’t it encompass all musical genres, because all music has emotion in it? If you only pick one thing out of this article, be it that emo stands for emotive hardcore, not just emotional.more...
Many kids have the complete wrong sense of what emo is. Many earlier emo bands only released their songs on vinyl, and they were distributed minimally, so the origin of emo is lost among most people. This is my attempt at tracing it back to the start, in hopes to educate you. I’m sure there is going to be a lot of important bands and years missing, but hopefully it will give you a vague idea of how it all started out.
With that said, let’s move onto the history of emotive hardcore. Heres where the term emo came from: When Minor Threat broke up in 1983, the hardcore punk scene was getting pretty stale. In 1984, Husker Du released “Zen Arcade,” which somewhat set the blueprint for emo bands to follow. This album had the rough vocals, but it had more melody, and was a bit slower than their previous works. Many people give credit to this as the first emo album.
In the spring of 1984, a band called Rites of Spring was formed, containing members of previous hardcore bands The Untouchables/Faith and Deadline. This band kept the speed and stylings of hardcore punk rock, but the vocals were a lot more emotional, and ...
Oft-associated with the emo and screamo scenes.
A punk/indie musician or fan whose fashion sense makes them look like Star Trek Vulcan, Dr. Spock. Spock Rockers often have pasty skin, and favor undersized shirts, highwater pants, clunky, dark shoes, and a helmet of dyed black hair.
Some Spock-Rockers prefer shotgun blast hairstyles, gelling their hair into forms of bedhead that look like the exit wounds of, well, a shotgun blast.
The Spock Rock look reached its peak of popularity in the late '90s with teens and young adults who were fans of bands like The Locust, websites like MakeoutClub.com, and gatherings such as hardcore festivals.
There were all these Spock Rockers at the show at the Che in San Diego.
Pokez has a virtual Spock Rock wall of fame near the register.
Is Greg on Vivalavinyl again? He's such a Spock Rocker!

Emo (an abbreviation of "emotional") is a term now broadly used to describe almost any form of guitar-driven alternative rock that expresses emotions beyond traditional rock's limited emotional palette of alienation and rage. It is also used to describe fans of this genre, most commonly teenagers. (e.g., emo kid). The actual term "emo" originated in the mid-1980s D.C. scene, with the band Rites of Spring. The term addressed both the way the band connected with its audience, as well as its tendency to deal more with topics of personal and relationship politics than with the standard themes of rock music.more...
The roots of the emo style can be traced to two seminal bands of the post-punk era. In 1983, Mission of Burma's album VS did much to expand rock beyond its original constraints while still retaining its raw emotional punch. There are still emo bands around today, but most of them take on a full-on screaming approach (hence the name Screamo) like Circle Takes The Square and Saetia. In 1984, Hüsker Dü's album Zen Arcade established what is widely considered to be the definitive blueprint for emo: simple, raw guitar-oriented music with intense vocals and deeply introspective songwriting.
As the style caught on, bands such as Moss Icon, Policy of Three, Navio Forge and Indian Summer evolved the form into what became known as simply "emo", a style which intensified the dramatic aspects of vocal performances in order to achieve a cathartic breakthrough with th...
|7.||eight circuits of consciousness|
a considerable theory assumed by the philosopher Timothy Leary. The way Leary saw it, the nervous system consists of 8 potential circuits, or "gears". Four of these circuits are located in the usually active left lobe of the brain and are concerned with our terrestrial survival; the four on the right side are "extraterrestrial", reside in the usually inactive right lobe, and are for use in our future evolution.more...
This explains why the right lobe is usually inactive, and why it becomes active when one injests psychedelic drugs.
To better understand this theory, here's an in depth explaination of each circuit:
I. THE BIO-SURVIVAL CIRCUIT
This invertebrate brain was the first to evolve (2 to 3 billion years ago) and is the first activated when a human infant is born. It programs perception onto an either-or grid divided into nurturing-helpful Things (which it approaches) and noxious-dangerous Things (which it flees, or attacks). The imprinting of this circuit sets up the basic attitude of trust or suspicion which will ever after trigger approach or avoidance.
II. THE EMOTIONAL CIRCUIT
This second, more advanced bio-computer formed when vertebrates appeared and began to compete for territory (perhaps 500,000,000 B.C.). In the individual, this bigger tunnel-reality is activated when the DNA master-tape triggers the metamorphosis from crawling to walking. As every parent knows, the toddler is no longer a passive (bio-survival) i...
