A genre made up by MTV when they made their own version of the classic opera "Carmen" starring Beyonce.
"I rented 'Carmen,' wanna come over and watch?"
"The real one or that hip hopera with Beyonce in it?"
EarthBound is a kickass game made by the famous Japanese personality Shigesato Itoi for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (Super Famicom in Japanese). It's the second in a series of games called Mother, but you don't need to play the first one to understand EarthBound's plot. It was released in Japan in 1994 and in America in 1995, and proceeded to get an awesome cultlike fanbase in the 2000s.more...
It tells the tale of the boy named Ness, who would later appear in Super Smash Bros. games, and his new friends. Paula, a girl with powerful psychic abilities, is found relatively early in the game, and then meet up with Jeff, a mechanical genius. Eventually, the three of them encounter a mysterious eastern prince named Poo, and they all form a dream team to save the world. At the beginning of the game, you can even name them whatever you want, and you can name your favorite food, favorite thing and your pet dog too.
The game is brilliant because of its off-the-wall humor. You can find perfectly good burgers from the trash, and there are a lot of trippy drug references, Beatles references and complaints about the IRS. It's a zany trip through a modern world that resembles America, and everyone wears modern clothes. Instead of magic, the heroes (except for Jeff) use psychic powers, or PSI. Weapons are baseball bats, frying pans, slingshots, homemade bottle rockets, and yo-yos. If you're hungry, you can order a pizza. And aliens, robots and UFOs are rampant. Weird little cr...
There is no term in existance. The two genres of music are mutually exclusive of each other. Metal revels in sex, drugs, violence and death. Emo on the other had cringes and cries in a corner at such ideas.
It's either Metal or Emo, not both.
You are thinking of PostHardcore, or just plain EMO, you fucking idiot!
Dude: Fuck I love SLAYER!
Emo: Umm...why do they have to sing about such evil things and like it? Why can't Emo "Metal"have some kick ass music like this but without the evil and violence? It makes me want to cry...(whines)
Dude: Because, pussy, there is no such thing! No one in their right mind would even think about that bullshit! Get the fuck out of my McDonalds...

Grindcore, often shortened to Grind, is a genre of extreme music that developed in the mid-1980's. It draws on the heaviest and most abrasive of music styles, including Death Metal, Thrash Metal, Hardcore Punk, Industrial Music and Noise Music. Grindcore bands are commonly made up of a simple vocalist, guitarist, bassist, drummer line-up. Grindcore songs are typically short, rarely lasting more than 2 to 2 and a 1/2 minutes long, with many lasting only seconds. Guitars are downtuned, heavily distorted and usually only played with simple, short, repetitive riffs, or without any consistent riffs at all, sometimes being completely improvised and played randomly up and down the neck. Bass playing is for the most part the same. Drumming is chaotic, sometimes deliberately out of time, and characterised by the use of blastbeats (look it up). Vocals are usually screamed, growled or barked, but unlike distinct vocal styles from other genres such as Deathgrowl and Screamo, which are still quite abrasive and sometimes inhuman-sounding but intended to convey some understandable meaning, Grindcore vocals are often completely unintelligible, with no audible distinction between vowels and consonants, syllables, and even whole words, with some of the more...more...
|5.||Post Avantgarde Jazzcore|
A fake genre of music used as a retort to people who claim to listen to a bunch of made up genres of music in order to seem interesting.
Rumor has it, only one band ever existed. They played only one show to an empty room, recorded and mixed the show into a live album, produced one copy, and then never spoke or saw each other again. The album was recorded through an old walkman, and can only be played through player piano scrolls.
Man 1: I listen to very obscure music, shoegaze-acidhouse, downtempo-core, Post-doublecore, chamberfolk...
Man 2: Yes, I too only listen to post avantgarde jazzcore, but these plebeians will never understand it. Surely YOU, have heard of it...?
The hand gesture made by "metal heads" when hearing music they like. Made by holding the middle and ring finger down with the thumb while holding pointer finger and pinky strait. (Unfortunately) Picked up by lots of music genres, now not taken as seriously for that reason.
ALL YOU f****rs GET THOSE HORNS UP!!
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 ...
