No mater what you think, this does not exist.
emotive hardcore (yes it falls within the realms of punk-rock... that is to say D.I.Y. punk rock) cannot be mixed with metal because of the totally different ethos that surrounds the two.
boy 1 in bad metalcore/grind t-shirt - "that atreyu are proper emo "metal""
boy 2 in nice braid /texas is the reason /hot water music /quicksand /dag nasty t-shirt - "oh, fuck off would you? thats just bad metal"
A male emo kid that performs sexual acts with another emo male in hopes of attracting females, creating a paradox. Their homosexual acts are why the word fag is used to describe them.
Non EMO 1: So why the hell are those two emo boys making out?
Non EMO 2: They're doing it to attract females so they'll have sex with them.
Non EMO 1: Wait....what?
Non EMO 2: Yea I know, real emo fags those two are.
The most ridicolous genre of music ever, which the world would probably be a much better place without. Originaly used in the 80s as a term for side-projects or 2nd bands of ex-members of well known hardcore bands, it has now become a stupid new fad defining a genre of music which has already been defined millions of times as pop punk, emo, hardcore, fattycore, etc.
A: Hey you want a bacon sandwhich?
B: Bacon sandwhich? wtfzzz, it's all about corned beef now yo.
Replace Bacon sandwhich with emo, and corned beef with post hardcore.
You get ma drift?
-Emo music: Stands for 'emotive hardcore' music and branched off from 'hardcore music' (a heavier faster version of punk). Emo is characterized mostly by its vocals. The male singer often sounds femenine. There may be moans, screams (as opposed groans or roars), and simply singing in a very soft manner. Lyrics also play role. These are mostly characterized by complaints or discussing stressful life situations.more...
-Emo as slang or an insult: Invented by opposers to the emotive hardcore style and music. More fundamental 'hardcore kids' wanted to distinguish themselves from the emotive hardcore genre or emotive hardcore listeners, so they attached an offensive nature to the term 'emo' (which was short for the music) and invented the term 'emo kid.'
-Later use: Emo became associated, as an insult, with introverts who had thick rimmed glasses, shaggy hair, old band shirts, depression, and self mutilation.
-Today: People defined as emo today, are mostly part of the emotive hardcore scene. People who follow the popular emo fashion style (described below) may also be labeled emo, even though they do not enjoy the music or the scene.
-Contemporary Emo Fashion style: Both the males and females are characterized by having hair in their face (sometimes spikey in the back and/or with highlights), a lot of makeup, tight jeans, piercings (especially ones called 'snakebites'), and more. Female styles include: fake pearl neck...
Sweet god...the amount of definitions that should be saved for the avril lavigne fans...more...
People use the term emo music as a narrow minded attempt at attempting to categorize emotional music as 'everything that sounds like fall out boy'. It ain't. Here are the genres/musicians that could be referred to as 'emo', 'emo orientated' or perhaps 'crap' if you don't like it.
1980s hardcore/soulful punk: People argue that this laid the base for most 'emo' and it does share very similar qualities to more commercial forms we have today. Catchy guitar lyrics, rough lyrics dealing with love, unhapiness, anandonment, hatred, disullision, longer running times ( unlike all other forms of hardcore punk at the time ) etc. I would cite Husker Du's Zen Arcade as the best example of this era, but Rites of spring are another brilliant band.
Early 90s/90s screamo: As an off-shoot of emo this is included. Bands in the early 90s took emo on to more fast, distorted, screamed and abstract horizons. You can easily recognise alot of this music by these qualities but running times varied alot ( indian summer's track 12 ran for 17 minutes, where as jerome's dream songs ran for much shorter ), lyrics may be intelligible at parts or not atall, there may be huge intros or guitar riffs lasting the majority of the songs thrashed and or melodic. Indian summer, jerome's dream, joshua fit for battle, swing kids are examples. Modern pop punk should not be confused with this genre under pain of death.
A sub-genre of rock music closely related to punk.
Other sub-genre's similar or easily mistanken to be emo could be Post-Hardcore or Pop-Punk.
Emo (or "Emo Kids") also refers to people who listen to emo, (usually teenagers). The common stereotype with emo's are that they are deppressed, bisexual, fake, self loathing, dark, sensitive, and extremely associated with self harm. This is not always the case. Yes, some emo's are deppressed, but not all of them. Some are bisexual, others arent. etc, etc, etc... Those stereotypes can apply to other sub cultures, not just emo.
There is a large number of emo kids that arent like that. There are quite a lot of happy, confident emo's.
Emo bands: My Chemical Romance, Hawthorne Heights, Taking Back Sunday, Dashboard Confessional.
A "Techno Punk" is someone who:
-Has or has had odd-coloured hair
-Is also a Mindless Self Indulgence fan
Kind of like a club kid without the Michael Alig, the psycho clothes, and the hardcore drug use.
Also known as an "Electro Kid".
Much like a Technemo.
Techno Punk #1: I like bands like Mindless Self Indulgence, Alexisonfire, SMB, My Chemical Romance, Retard-O-Bot, Underoath, Vyncent Flaw, and He Is Legend! And I just died my previously pink hair green!
Techno Punk #2: Oh my! That means you're a techno punk!
