Screamo is a subdevision of Emo which is a subdivision of Punk Rock which is a subdivision of Punk which is a subdivision of Rock. Screamo started in the mid 90s when a young man who couldn't sing begged his four friends to let him join their band. Having no talent at all and hurt by their rejection he screamed "LET ME BE IN THE BAND!"

The band was both shocked and impressed by their friends ability to scream and let him join out of sheer fear.

Screamo is a music related term which originated in the 80's or 90's. It is generally classified by rough "screaming" vocals. Although it is generally listened to by teenagers and people in their young 20's this type of music can be listened to by people of any age or background. Many bands who are not technically screamo (Take Sleeping With Sirens for example) are often confused or labeled as screamo due to the occasional scream, even though it is not their main type of music. Screamo itself is normally not a genre of its own but will be characterized in many genres such as hardcore or punk rock.
Hey James what kind of music do you like?

I like bands which have a bit of screamo in them like The Devil Wears Prada

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.
