A mixture of "Emo" music with Screamed (rather than, or as well as, Sung) vocal parts. Typical lyrical subject matters range from matters of the heart to politics.

Screamo is a music that has been influenced by the emo scene. In my opinion, the best screamo band I know is Poison the Well, a new and lively band, which is a combo of hardcore screamo/metal. People who listen to screamo are usually a part of the "goth" or "emo" scene, along with others who just enjoy the earsplitting, unaudible words sung beautifully by the greatest voices.
Most screamo is loud, sharp and awesome. Screamo is a beautiful music that should be heard by everyone with taste. If you are new to the Screamo scene, check out some good screamo bands, like Poison the Well, Saetia et al and city of caterpillar (You'll definatly be able to find Poison the Well, not sure about the others).
And if you don't like it, don't bitch, don't comment, just go back to your vapid hippity-hop "music".
Screamo is loud and beatiful.
Hip-Hop is dumb and gay.
Country is weak and retarded.
Rock is good.
Rap just sucks.

You should be able to tell the difference.

actually I don't know any screamo band which would be a sell out. If thursday, the used, my chemical romance etc. are screamo bands then what is emo? screamo is characterised by hardcore screaming vocals, harmonized guitars, slower and more melodic breakdowns etc. Probably one of the most popular screamo band is JR Ewing, but I wouldn say it's popular. So screamo is a kick ass genre and I'm ashamed when some dickheads say that thursday and other shitty bands like this are screamo
some of the best known screamo bands JR Ewing, Underoath, Analena...

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

Trendy yelling which has no value musically or intellectually. Usually patronized by so called hardcore youths who usually have to be home by 8:30 or else they won't have time to take out their phony lip ring before they go to bed.
Loser: Oh man insert random dumb band name here is so amazing! I go to like all their shows because I'm trendy!
