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.

A subgenre of emo that is performed by extremely musically retarded individuals who are incapable of expressing themselves coherently and require raw yelling to communicate their emotions.

Note: Screamo is not an artform. It is a recorded abortion.
The screamo band missed the boat on puberty.

Simply stated, an evolved emo. When they get mad from being called emos try calling them eamos, pronounced the same but its a different word so they cant get mad
The emos hate the screamos because they haven't evolved yet.

A musical style with the same emotional value in the lyrics as "emo" but has screaming involved in the music along with/instead of singing. Many "harcore" people like to dis screamo, saying that it is too weak, but every genre of music is different, which needs to be realized.

Emo + screams. Screamo has the same emotional lyrics as most emo songs, but with a harder sound, and a lot of screaming. Partialy related to "primal scream therapy" which is psychotherapy in which the patient expresses anger or frustration especially through spontaneous and unrestrained screams, hysteria, or violence
Blinside and Underoath play turbo screamo music.
