Emo MUSIC in it's purest and original form. True emo. It used to be a musical genre in the '80s until the world killed it in the 2000s by turning it into an insult and a label. Started by what is the first emo band to produce an album, Rites Of Spring, it was a combination of punk rock mixed with raw emotion, often related to love. Rites Of Spring was introduced and categorized as the very first band to play the Emotional Hardcore genre. Later, a shorter term was coined in place of Emotional Hardcore. This new word was Emocore. Then, after Emocore got around, people shortened it even more to Emo. Modern day people now use this word with completely different meaning. When they think of emo, they think of a lonely kid wearing girl pants and eyliner cutting himself. They don't know the true meaning of emo, and it is indeed a very sad thing. The world would be a completely different place if people knew what emo really meant, and what a wonder it used to be, and how much they have corrupted it.
Rites of Spring is a truely talented emotional hardcore band. The real definition of emo, unlike many mainstream "emo" bands such as Dashboard Confessional, Get Up kids and Hawthorne Heights.
