› What is emo music

Emocore has been subject of much debate since it first appeared. So...emo is a genre of rock music. At first, the term was used to describe a subgenre of hardcore punk in the '80s. Later, 'emocore' was used to describe the DC scene and regional scenes related.

The biggest names of the period are Fire Party, Rites of Spring, One Last Wish, Embrace, Beefeater, Gray Matter, and Moss Icon.

The first wave of emo began to fade after the breakups of most of the involved bands in the early 1990s. In the mid '90s, 'emo' began to reflect the indie scene that followed the influences of Fugazi. Bands like 'Texas is the reason' and 'Sunny Day Real Estate' introduced a more indie rock style of emo, less violent than it's predecessor. "Indie emo" survived until the late '90s. As the remaining indie emo bands entered the mainstream, newer bands began to emulate the more mainstream style, creating a style of music that has now earned the moniker emo within popular culture.

Whereas, even in the past, the term emo was used to identify a wide variety of bands, the breadth of bands listed under today's

emo is even more vast, leaving the term "emo" as more of a loose identifier than as a specific genre of music.
