Emo Music ';..;'
Anyone know any good emo bands? Like actually emo bands, not like Three Days Grace - Pain...but like Senses Fail, and Mae [damn posers]
The fact that they are "emo" necessarily means that they cannot be good. You just made an oxymoron. Its like saying melodious rap, or jumbo shrimp, pretty ugly, etc.

are there 'good' emo groups? (i don't think they deserve the name 'band')
my brain is taking it's time to deduce that Jakko hates emos O_o
this thread will mostly get flamed... but well, you can always ask again =P
just check google if you want to know it that bad
I like emo music
From FIrst to Last
30 Seconds to Mars (yes there emo)
My Chemical ROmance (They got bad but theyr old stuf is good)
"rage" "beat", who'da thunk you'd be emo, with that name.
Why not just call yourself, "Cut me bleeding fallen heart into a million pieces of despair that my pampered suburban white boy life that has never know hardship just cannot handle."
I think it has a nice ring to it.

Actually when it comes to Rock music in general i'm a noob.
i'm confused tho, since when is "emo rock" music good? i'm a noob at rock music so just asking...
Well, i find it to be a bit of a plague...
The term itself is EMOtion ._. , so to show feelings they say. Wich is... stupid since rock itself has a feeling. Emo was like created for "sad" feelings.
It's mostly for depressed teenagers, you know...
"nobody cares for me"
"i hate myself and want to die" (yet they don't kill themselves)
"noone loves me"
And more crap of that nature. I think it is "suposed" to be artistic, but for me it's just shit. It's existance alone is annoying.
Just my point of view tough xD
Luckily i barely know emo's, just a girl and in every entry of her flog she'll always write what a shitty day it was, that she wished to go back to when things were pretty and nice and flowers rained down the sky and Santa Claus would bring her candy bars.
...Hope that helps you understand, if not, just wiki!
It's funny, but after a while you get annoyed by it.
Extract from wikipedia
"Emo music has also been compared to the teen pop of 1990s boy bands.Critics cast the music as lacking any artistic merit, the fashion as "embarrassing" and members of the subculture as imagining or pretending that they lead harsh, painful lives when they actually live in comfortable, upper- to middle class homes. Members of the emo subculture are portrayed by critics as melodramatic, self-pitying teenagers who pour their efforts into writing bad poetry and spending a great amount of time on MySpace. "
umm chili and rice try Funeral for a friend.and the bad thing about being emo is their lyrics.their music isn't that bad.
Jimmy Eat World
No make-up, lyrics aren't whiny as fuck for the most part and they do know how to do a good and energetic live show.
