Jerking For Soup

Looked down upon as the black sheep of music genres, emo has had quite a strange lifetime. From it's origins as a developing form of hardcore rock in the 80s, to it's turn to the mainstream throughout the 90s and 2000s, and now with emo rock taking a slight step out of the mainstream, it is worthy of recognition for ways in which it has influenced the direction of music and is currently going through a revival.


It's really not restricted to certain bands or sounds. Emo is just expressing deeply personal messages with often confessional lyrics. It's traditionally rock music. The stigma it has recieved with bands like Evanescance and My Chemical Romance aren't what defines emo as a genre. A lot of emo isn't based around common belief, etc. In short, it's not the cringefest it's often made out to be; it's often conflated and considered synonymous with the subculture it has spawned.



Some emo rock bands:


Algernon Cadwallader

Armor For Sleep

American Football

Black Veil Brides


Brand New

Cap N' Jazz



Dashboard Confessional

Death Cab For Cutie

Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate)


Fall Out Boy

Funeral For A Friend



Jimmy Eat World

Joyce Manor

Hawthorne Heights

Panic! At The Disco



Modern Baseball

My Chemical Romance

Rites Of Spring


Saves The Day

Senses Fail

Simple Plan

Sleeping With Sirens


Sunny Day Real Estate

The Promise Ring

The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

The Used

The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die

Taking Back Sunday

Texas is The Reason


Some questionable bands who have had some contribution to the genre:


30 Seconds To Mars


Breaking Benjamin

Blink 182

Good Charlotte

Green Day

Linkin Park

The Fray

The Get Up Kids

(Pinkerton) Weezer


Some genre-defining emo albums:

- Diary (Sunny Day Real Estate)

- American Football (American Football)

- Bleed American (Jimmy Eat World)

- Tell All Your Friends (Taking Back Sunday)

- Clarity (Jimmy Eat World)

- Dear You (Jawbreaker)

- Frame and Canvas (Braid)

- 3 Cheers For Sweet Revenge (My Chemical Romance)

- The Devil & God Are Raging Inside Me (Brand New)

- Deja Entendu (Brand New)

- Your Favourite Weapon (Brand New)

- Pinkerton (Weezer)

- From Under The Cork Tree (Fall Out Boy)

- Rites Of Spring (Rites Of Spring)

- Nothing Feels Good (The Promise Ring)

- Analphabetapolothology (Cap N' Jazz)
