Screamo- a type of music in which the vocalist screams, instead of singing the lyrics. It is similar to post-hardcore music, but unlike post-hardcore (in which there is more singing) there is a lot more screaming.

Not all bands that scream are screamo. Bands such as PTV or SAS are not screamo.

Has a completely different fan base than then emo music, and is not happy being called emo. Though many emo's do enjoy screamo music, not all screamo fans should be labeled emo. They are a like, but not the same.

Screamo- A type of music people who think they're better need to stop bashing on because it has an actual fan base!
I love Screamo music!

A genre of "music", usually involving overpowering amounts of double bass, little to no meaning or soul to the music, and annoying spiderwebbing guitar riffs. When the lead "singer" isn't ripping his throat out while he screams about useless shit, they'll use those new, whiny voices that sound like that of an 8 year old girl's. This music is loved by the hordes of fashion zombies who just love to conform to the latest, passing Hot Topic style.
Scene/Psuedo-Emo Kid 1- OMG did you get the new Chiodos/Bring Me the Horizon/Five-Finger Deathpunch/ album? I love terrible screamo.

Scene/Psuedo-Emo Kid 2- Let's go to Hot Topic and jack off to Craig Owens!

An emo band lacking enough talent to play decent music and/or an emo band with a vocalist that lacks the talent to whine melodically. Many screamo bands simply make a horrible racket while the kid with the microphone screams like a spoiled child having a tantrum in the supermarket; not fast enough to be considered grindcore. Other screamo bands play homongenized, emo-pop music, alternating mellodic whiny, self-depreciating and contrived lyrics with a screaming back-up vocalist who usually repeats the first vocalist's drama-rants.
I went to the screamo concert the other day and soon realized it was just a screaming kid banging on pots and pans in the store. It actually sounded better than the screamo concert going on at Tantrumcore Records.

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.

A word people mistake for being post-hardcore/metalcore music. Bands like: Bring Me The Horizon, The Amity Affliction, Of Mice & Men, Asking Alexandria, Chelsea Grin, Pierce The Veil, Parkway Drive or even Black Veil Brides (are people fucking crazy) etc are usually called "screamo" either by Emo/Scene fags or people who have never heard a vocalist who screams.
Scene/emo fag: Oh my god I love Black Veil Brides and Asking Alexandria they're so screamo RAWR screamo music 4 lyf :3 :3 ^_^
Awesome people like me: You're fucking retarded and so is your music taste, leave.

Scene/emo fag: I love screamo music like, The Amity Affliction, Parkway Drive and Northlane
Awesome people like me: No no no no and NO, go back to listening to your shitty Black Veil Brides/Blood On The Dancefloor shit.

The stereotypical classification of one or multiple individuals that have characteristics of the hardcore sub-culture. Such as listening to Hardcore (Screamo) music , attending concerts, and dressing in a particular fashion. Such as wearing skinny jeans, v-necks, band tee's, cut off shorts (jorts), Vans, Toms, etc. Although there are many false pretenses about this classification, they are almost entirely all false. This sub-culture will be the driving force behind our generation to the next, with the largest amount of free thinkers, open mindedness, and general compassion. Hardcore (Screamo) music is actually commonly listened to by all different sub-cultures.
"That guy is listening to A Day To Remember, he's obviously a Screamo."

"Cut off shorts? You're a Screamo!"

"Look at those Screamos throw down!"

"Toms and Vans are for screamo(s)."
