The result of people thinking that emo could not get any worse. Screamo bands are emo bands who cant sing, so they decide to scream instead. While there are maybe four or five indie emo bands who are really musically talented (though they're lyrics still suck), screamo is a stigmatic title that pisses off even regular emos and makes screamo bands sadder, thus they continue to scream..o (sorry).
Man, Hawthorne Hights should have their screamo asses taken to the town square, where they should be burned at the stake for all to see.

a term which refers to punky emo bands in the 90s. however dip shit teenagers will call metal, or any other music(even crunk-rap) with guttural vocals "screamo". basically like people calling earlobe stretching "gauging",people repeate phrases like these because its what they heard, from more dipshit teenagers.
metalhead 1:cannibal corpse fucking rules!

metalhead 1: this isnt screamo. these guys have actual knowledge of musical you even know how to play a minor scale fag? metal pwns the shit out of punk.
scene fag:liek its not punk!!!
(metalhead 1 kills scene fag)

Screamo is a so-called genre of so-called music consisting of the godawful noises made by some misguided, pampered, spoiled, suburban white kids who never worked a day in their life passing themselves off as some kind of band. Clueless kids trying to "scream out their angst" because they ran out of better things to do and they can't fart loud enough to really annoy people.

Screamo is emo kids trying to be metal, P.S. it doesn't work you still suck.
emo kid: screamo is the best type of metal

metalhead: shut up loser, screamo is gay and not metal, real metal is dio, slayer, iron maiden, pantera, and anthrax

Once upon a time Metal fucked Emo, and never called her back. The result was a hideous, disfigured, makeup-covered hermaphrodite named Screamo.
Screamo is the worst sound a group of semi-humanoids can possibly make.

A disgusting and shitty excuse for music. It sounds like a mixture of barking dogs and dying muppets. Most of the screamo songs are about general pointlessness and are almost impossible to understand what the singers are saying. Useful if your trying to give yourself a bad headache.
What is that, a pack of wild dogs? Oh, its just screamo.

A subgenre of emo that was invented when emo turned mainstream. The word Screamo is usually used to describe metalcore and heavy post hardcore that have emotionally charged lyrics, which are often screamed. The emotions used in Screamo songs are usually more angry than whiney, but can still be very whiney. Anger IS an emotion, but MTV seem to think otherwise! Real emo/screamo comes from real emotions, not fake whiney bullshit emotions that the emo singers don't even have.
Mainstream emo fan: How can you diss Pierce the Veil?!?! You must be a heartless screamo fan!
Screamo fan: Fuck your fake emotions you introverted asshole
