They're emotional sure. Almost all music is emotional. That doesn't mean all music falls under the musical category “emo”. HIM komu fram 1991. ÞÁ VAR EMO INDÍ LEGT, EKKI DARK. EKKI DARK. (þó textarnir hafi víst verið smá dimmir þegar emo brotnaði út frá pönkinu sem subgenre 1980)
Vinur minn lýsti þessu þannig að Emo væri MTV útgáfan af goth.
Meina. Það var þessi tónlistarstíll. Hljómsveitir sem klæddu sig allar líkt Funeral for a Friend eða Weezer, svona indí shit.
Svo kom My chemical romance og þá varð til þetta Dark emo, sem var að blanda hálf-goth ímynd saman við tónlistina, og fóru að væla aðeins meira.
Og HIM eru inspired by gothic rock, hljómsveitum eins og Sisters of Mercy og hlusta á Black Sabbath og svoleiðis, ekki emo. Þeir segjast vera Love metal og það er stór love metal sena í Svíþjóð, en fólk vill yfirleitt ekki samþykkja að love metal sé til svo þeir eru flokkaðir Gothic Rock. Ekki emo, þó emo sé svolítið að herma eftir gothi með ímyndina. Þetta er eins og 69 eyes eru gothic rock, ekki emo. Það er ekkert endilega mikill munur á útliti þeirra og emo en það er munur. Plús að tónlistin er allt öðruvísi. Him eru miklu líkari 69 en emo.

Mæli með að þú lesir eitthvað af:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screamohttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emo_%28music%29http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emo_%28slang%29
Svo þú vitir hvað þú átt við þegar þú skilgreinir þig sem einstakling með orðinu “emo”.
HIM tala líka oft um vampírur og þannig, það er gothic theme ekki emo.
Emo er líka miklu meira mainstream, því þetta er MTV shit, meðan mikið af TR00 NECRO KVLT goth er underground, eins og darkwave senan. Sem er sick góð. Eða black noise senan.
Correctly or not, emo has often been used to describe such bands as AFI, Alexisonfire, Brand New, Bright Eyes, Coheed and Cambria, Death Cab For Cutie, Fall Out Boy, From First to Last, Funeral for a Friend, Hawthorne Heights, My Chemical Romance, Panic! at the Disco, Senses Fail, Something Corporate, The Starting Line, Story of the Year, Taking Back Sunday, Thursday, The Used, and Underoath. The classification of bands as “emo” is often controversial. Fans of several of the listed bands have recoiled at the use of the “emo” tag, and have gone to great lengths to explain why they don't qualify as “emo”. In many cases, the term has simply been attached to them because of musical similarites, a common fashion sense, or because of the band's popularity within the “emo” scene, not because the band adheres to emo as a music genre.
(Mér finnst kolrangt að kalla the Used emo.)
In a strange twist, screamo, a sub-genre of the new emo, has found greater popularity in recent years through bands such as Thrice and Glassjaw.  The term screamo, however, was used to describe an entirely different genre in the early 1990s, and the new screamo bands more resemble the emo of the early 1990s. Complicating matters further is that several small scenes devoted to original screamo still exist in the underground.
Even still, the difficulty in defining “emo” as a genre may have started at the very beginning. In a 2003 interview by Mark Prindle, Guy Picciotto of Fugazi and Rites of Spring was asked how he felt about “being the creator of the emo genre”. He responded: “I don't recognize that attribution. I've never recognized ‘emo’ as a genre of music. I always thought it was the most retarded term ever. I know there is this generic commonplace that every band that gets labeled with that term hates it. They feel scandalized by it. But honestly, I just thought that all the bands I played in were punk rock bands. The reason I think it's so stupid is that - what, like the Bad Brains weren't emotional? What - they were robots or something? It just doesn't make any sense to me.”.
Ég held þú sért samt miklu meira að hlusta á Metalcore heldur en emo, því Bullet for my Valentine og Killswitch Engage eru Metalcore. Ekki emo. Gáðu á wikipedia.
Bands like Dashboard Confessional began to popularize a more dramatic and personal style of “emo”, which used lyrics that had a far greater appeal amongst teenagers experiencing life and love for the first time. As the lyrical content shifted, and as the genre began to enter the mainstream, the term “emo” started to be used more often to describe what was perceived by those outside the scene as the overwrought melodrama of the music. The perception was that melodrama was feigned, an effort to display depression or dysfunction where it did not actually
þetta er bara það. það eru tvær tegundir af emo. ein að herma eftir indí og ein að herma eftir goth. HIM eru ekki neitt af þessu.
