This list is an excellent encapsulation of why it is totally fucked to describe "emo" as a real kind of music that exists http://www.vulture.com/article/best-emo-songs.html
@Pixley these seem like pop punk? When I was an emo we all listened to screamo lol
@penelopie__ there's some screamo in there!
@Pixley lol wow this is absolutely nonsensical
@wintgenstein I mean, "emo" as a genre has always been totally nonsensical, so I'm sympathetic, but it's.... a strange endeavor
@Pixley I read that entire article and I still don’t understand how emo went from being emotional punk to doing the poppy goth thing
@dreadpirateyarr it is one of life's greatest mysteries!!
@Pixley 1 and 2 spot on tho
@neoncoughh pretty solid choices at the top, yeah
@Pixley wish time travel were real just so we could tell however-old us listening to Dear You and playing Scattergories that we'd see Jawbreaker some day
@neoncoughh and they'd actually be good! What a relief it would be
@Pixley I would argue emo was briefly a thing around 2000
@platypus I would vigorously disagree but the thing is: we're both right and we're both wrong and no one knows
@Pixley I just have these memories which involve me wearing overalls and NOT looking my best goth self (I was not emo) and trying to get along with some people I'd describe as "emo kids" who later became hipsters
@Pixley but who knows. no one
@platypus 2001 was the year I transitioned from goth to emo, so this tracks
@Pixley what a time to be alive
