A very broad range of musical genres all clumped together and Called "emo" but actually completely different genres.
Bands like black veil brides or sleeping with sirens or any other generic scene-looking bands are called emo; generic Pop bands like paramore are called emo; generic Pop Punk bands like mcr or fall out boy are called Emo.
