look up any word, like wcw:
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.

The act of screaming pointless and/or meaningless lyrics at an ear-bleeding volume to the point where you want to rip the singer's vocal chords out. In order to make the "music" sound hardcore, the drummer uses the double bass exclusively throughout each song and the guitarist plays the same power chords. Some jokes er-I mean bands include:
From First to Last
Bring Me the Horizon
The Devil Wears Prada
The Number Twelve Looks Like You
Heavy Heavy Low Low
Fear Before The March of Flames
Drop Dead, Gorgeous
Person1: Screamo is sooo hardcore and coool!!!!111
Person2: Do you have any musical taste at all?

A form of music designed for those of the emo persuasion. It was created as another way for the emo kind to hurt themselves.
DarkxxDragon: hey i'm listening to drop dead gorgeous. it hurts so good.
xoAnimex3Masterox: i know. listening to them makes me feel alive, but i will be dead soon.
DarkxxDragon: let's make the pact of death tonight.
xoAnimex3Masterox: during Naruto?
DarkxxDragon: yeah. right after Bobobo-Bo-Bobo and Yugi-oh. those need to be the last visions in my mind before my death.
xoAnimex3Masterox: it's on like donkey kong.
DarkxxDragon: rock on. i love screamo almost as much as i love pain...cause they're the same thing.

A term mostly used by teens to describe a fusion of Emocore and Hardcore to create a new sub-genre. A recent example would be the band Bring Me The Horizon.
Excerpt from a screamo song by Bring Me The Horizon

Christ, I'm asking you for just one thing,
I'm asking you for just one thing,
Eradicate this disease,

Close your eyes, pray for plagues,
Oh Lord, cleanse this Earth and bring upon our dooms day,
Oh, close your eyes, pray for plagues,
Cleanse this Earth and bring dooms day,

She starts her new diet of liquor and dick,
Just like Hollywood, but laced in sick,
The sun goes down, and so does she,
The sun goes down, and so does she,

So clap your hands to the sound of every first born dying now,
Watch the rivers flow with blood,

death will stand where life once stood,

So clap your hands to the sound

of every first born dying now,
Watch the rivers turn to blood,

death will stand where life once stood,

1. A series of screams and belches, usually performed by homosexuals.
2. The audio track from a bestiality porn
3. The moans from bears having sex inserted onto a background of random unpleasant noise, some may classify it as music, i prefer the term noise.

People often label bands as screamo when they scream but most of the time they're wrong.

Screamo died in the 90's... RIGHT..
but now new bands started to play like a comercial screamo
that is kinda good actually...
saetia, orchid, Reversal of a man, are/were good screamo bands.
Orchid is actually Hardcore Punk, but fuckin fags keep telling that's screamo when it's not.
Screamo has "turned" into a new genre... that is mixed or confused with Screamocore:
bands as underoath, haste the day(at it's beginnings), shaped by fate, symphony in perfil, norma jean (garbage screamo/grunge screamo) are screamo bands NOW.
bands like atreyu and the bled are "hardcore".

bands like alesana and finch a part from being gay are fuckin pop... those cock suckers suck.
New Screamo is characterized by vocals and some parts of singing, melodic guitars, continous drumming and a elaborated music that put up together sounds better.
And ZAO is NOT A screamo band!. that's hardcore/metal

and please don't fucking mix: emo, emocore, violent emo, southern rock, hardcore, metalcore, WITH FUCKING SCREAMO!
guy #1: I Like Screamo (saetia, orchid)
guy #2: fuck, saetia isn't that good! orchid is ok, but that's old.
Guy #1: FUCK you guy 2
guy #2: no seriously... new-screamo is knida good...
listen to this: he plays some (NS)NEW SCREAMO song.
guy #1: (he realizes that some of the NS is actually good)
guy #2: Fuck YOU ALL!!

A type of music very similar to post-hardcore except more influenced by "emo" music. Combines emotional singing with screaming and grunting. The favourite music of scene kids and most emo kids.
I listen to Screamo music.
