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)."

A form of music for pussies. The lyrics consist of pointless stories about childhood heroes and the people who listen to it are in love with dinosaurs, thick rimmed glasses and other lame/bogus ideas. Also, the people who listen to screamo think they're "hardcore" and think that: dinosaurs still exist; the actually have problems but they really don't; and that they matter.
I'm going to go listen to Screamo to numb the problems I don't have because I'm a weakling.

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.

A label used by posers to call any music that has a vocalist who screams at some point or throughout the song. Screamo is not an actual music genre but a label that a poser will use to describe music because they don't know their music enough to know the actual genre. The real genre may be something like post-hardcore, Metalcore, Deathcore, Heavy Metal, Alternative rock, Glam Metal, Punk-Rock ect.
A poser would say, "I like to listen to Screamo"

the vocal outcome of multiple men in the process of "banging."
preferably prisoners. Screamo is produced from the dropping of soap within a group of aggressive naked men.
I walked into prison showers and saw screamo being made
