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!
scene fag:oh meh gawd u liek screemo too?!
metalhead 1: this isnt screamo. these guys have actual knowledge of musical theory.do 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)
real screamo is not finch and the used and thursday and all this light-weight crap we have today. true screamo is much much more than just music,it is a lifestyle and a personal connection. todays so called "screamo" bands suck. just because their little bitch asses scream 5 words in a song doesnt make them a bona-fide screamo band. I like to call them "gay". anyway... sceamo pretty much died in the 90s. the scene is over but some try to live it out. if you like finch and thursday and all that... dont claim to be a screamo kid... it makes people like me want to beat your stupid ass. those bands are emo anyway. If you dont know what it truly is than shut up.
joshua fit for battle, orchid, SAETIA!!!!!!!!, funeral diner, superstitions of the sky, hot cross, now, makara, neil perry, you and i, get fucked, shikari, City of Caterpillar, pg 99, pretty much anything on Level-Plane Records.
Worst attempt at anything that could be called music. Incorporates good guitarist, bassist, and precussionist (drummer) with shitty whiny vocals. No one cares that you complain about how bad your life supposedly is. See the poor people all around the world? Do you see them making poor excuses for "music"?
one of the best genre's around. raw music with really good guitaring and drums. the singing isnt crying, kk?

a type of harsher emo music with screaming in it and stuff. Many times it gets confused with metal
, death metal
, melodic metalcore
, hardcore punk
, or any music with harsh vocals in it. Often confused by it's older fans as a punk style, when real hardcore punk is actually Minor Threat, Black Flag and Agnostic Front, it's more of a subgenre of emo, which derived from punk. If emo was punk, then MCR's first album was punk. Because believe me, their first album actually did sound A LOT like old school emo and had some hardcore influence. But I wouldn't call it punk. I think punk is more rebellious and is like Ramones
and Sex Pistols
and 4 skins
and emo is short for emotional hardcore (despite sunny day real estate gave it a softer sound and remade it). It was influenced by hardcore, it was raw a lot and had screaming or speaking in it. Vocals often sounded very emotional but sometimes a little disturbed sometimes. At first it was pioneered by Pg 99. Early bands were Pg 99, Saetia, Heroin, Orchid and I Hate Myself. Today it's more of bands are I Would set myself on fire for you, Alexisonfire, thursday, funeral for a friend and the saddest landscape. Some newer ba...
hardcore punk music incorperating screaming/spoken vocals. Accompanied by erratic guitar and drum beats. Lyrics tend to be dark/hateful. Genre died around late 90's. Had its climax in the late 80's early 90's. Bands such as Alesana (post-hardcore/hardcore), A Day To Remeber (hardcore/pop punk), The Devil Wears Prada (hardcore/post-hardcore), Underoath (new, post-hardcore, old, metalcore/deathcore), August Burns Red (metalcore), Asking Alexandria (shitty metalcore) are often mistaken as 'screamo' music. The proper genres for each band is listed next to each one. More examples of mistaken screamo would be: Bring me the horizon (shitty metalcore, deathcore), Entombed (Death metal), Job for a cowboy(death metal), The Analyst (death metal, deathcore) Disfiguring the Goddess (deathcore, deathmetal), I declair war (deathcore, deathmetal), Suicide Silence (deathmetal), Malodorus (deathmetal). And to also clear things up the word 'emo' means nothing and is nothing. Its a stupid word to piss off over dramatic, egotistical people. The word was made up by media and ignorant douche bags.
And as a side note: The word emo no longer harms anyone. It makes you look stupid. Especially if you yell it at someone across a college campus. screamo is dead
Really awful music that scene and emo kids listen to to be "edgy" or "unique", when in all honesty they are carbon copies of each other.
Scene queen: OMG I FUKKEN LUV SCREAMO!
Me: Buy some originality.
