What is everyones problem with emo? Emo to me has delivered some of the most talented and dedicated bands around. Ie : brandnew, Thursday, Funeral for a friend, bright eyes.
Emo has been dragged down by all the 15 yr olds who conform to big fringes, star tats and all the other labels that are associated with them. Even though i wouldn't call them emo, and more so scene fashionistas, spurred on by myspace and other such vanity websites.
there are people like me who don't dress like that but still enjoy a good emo gig, but it seems you cant win either way with this one
