A type of music that involves a lot of screaming, obviously hencing the term "screamo".

Also, its a type of music that ruins your vocal chords.

I like screamo, but I'm just saying, it can really fuck up your chords.
BMTH, Chelsea Smile. But not Bullet For My valentine., they are more rock thank screamo..

It's the showing of real pain in an angry screaming way. You can't say a band is screamo just because they scream a lot along the song. This kind of sing is always involved with the emo genre. Like: Melodic Metalcore, Metalcore, Emo-core, Post-Hardcore, Fashionxcore, Metal Punk, etc...

Don't get confused with the Metal bands that tend to scream a lot, is just because they're claiming satan. Emo-Screamo is NOT satanic, and emos don't even have religions because we do NOT believe in anything, if it were like that, we would not wish to die.
Screamo: The vocalist who screams is always singing with a slow vocal singer, one after another or both at the same time. They just try to show the pain for us to identify ourselves with the song themes involved.

Example: Underoath, Alesana, Atreyu, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Emarosa, Emery, Emmure, blessthefall, Static Lullaby, Chiodos, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Alexisonfire, A Day To Remember, Eyes Set To Kill, From First To Last, Mighty Moshin Emo Rangers, etc...

A genre of music crossing between emo music and a more hard-core metal, with the emotion and lyrics of emo music, with the heavyness and screaming vocals of hardcore.
Think the bands Silverstein (When Broken Is Easily Fixed), It Dies Today (The Catiff Choir), From First To Last (Aesthetic), From Autumn To Ashes ( Holding A Wolf By The Ears), THESE are Screamo, NOT My Chemical Romance, NOT Finch, NOT all old music from the 90'S!!!

Screamo is a word used by scene-obsessed and genre-obsessed teenagers, usually middle class white American teenagers.

The rest of us ...including many middle class white American teenagers, dont give a shit what anyone calls the music we listen to.
Dude 1: Hey man you gotta get into Screamo.
Dude 2: Shut the fuck up and grow the fuck up, Ill listen to whatever shit I want and I dont care what genre you want to put it into, bitch.

Screamo is kind of like a type of metal, except it screams on a more positive note.
Screamo: "i've got a secret, its on the tip of my tongue on the back of my lungs and ive gotta keep it...." -Bring Me The Horizon

Metal: "I will bid farewell, sever the ties This is all I am, this is all that's left Turn from deceit, the love of self is death Deliverance is given to you" -Killswith Engage
