Emo sucks because it's not American!
But most <b>American</b> stuff sucks worse.
Not the rolling stones. They are so American they are british
Emo does suck
The Rolling Stones took so much from American blues and rock and roll pioneers that they might as well be American...
emo music is ok. what sucks are all the emo-kiddys on the net.
ITT lets hate a genre because it's popular!
lol i remember when every cool kid listened to slipknot, and then when the kids started to listening to them it was like; slipknot sucks!
I've always disliked slipknot. all things emo suck, except maybe FF7 and Evangelion
>I've always disliked slipknot.
good for you, i dont know why you had to tell everyone that but thank you.
I personally think you liked slipknot at one point then learned that it was to 'mainstream' to like.
I do not like emo because it all sounds the same. I have really given it a chance and listened to a lot of different artists but they all sound just the same.
As for the whole scene, the people seem really rude and close minded to anyone that is not like them, but aren't all scene kids and cliques like that? What is funny is when they call themselves unique, yet they dress the same and listen to the same music and turn their nose at someone who is different. Individuality does not come from clothes and music, but from within.
I agree with the point you are making. This can very well be seen with the kids who shop at hot topic but that isn't to say that everyone who shops at hot topic is emo or a scene kid. The problem I see with emo (a broad term I think because all music is emotional) is the sadness is brings. I think it could be affecting some of the youth and making them more depressed. The depression will cause them to not want to do anything at all and slowly kill all will. If you listen to the music now it's not about getting over and women and feeling better about it or getting over a death and continuing (which I think the dead would want) it's just about the feeling of sadness when it happens and that's it. But it also depends on the person themselves and how they perceive everything. Music though is a gate to the soul and it's emotions.
emo is to over used. there really aren't that many groups that really fit the emo name.
the only thing i don't listen to is country and i do like emo. i go to tons of shows and mosh and sing along. (shows are performances in clubs and small venues, NOT concerts in stadiums) its that there are a lot of emo "kids" that people don't like. I can understand, there are tons. But just cause there are tons of kids in the following doesn't mean that the music sucks, just that since it's popular everyone thinks its not original enough.
jagger wished he was american haha... you would never catch a brit saying "its a gas" (jumping jack flash) or "soda" (you cant always get what you want) and theres loads more examples... but hey, he did it well! :D
true. it helps people know they are not alone. and all of those "emos" went on to be rich musicians=]
It's hard to define just what constitutes 'American' music now-a-days. Who takes credit for 'American' music? The west African slaves for seeding its African influences? The blue-grass bands that shaped it? The salsa, rumba, and who knows what else of Latin America that diversified it? The British groups that sustained it?
