this is a thread for all who like the genre and for any people whom would like to learn what the ubiquitous term means. if you are aware of the true meaning of the term and just don't like it, please state why.
what are your favorite emo and screamo bands? post-emo indie? please recommend some more bands in this genre for me and those who are curious.
emo: rites of spring and antioch arrow
screamo: saetia and circle takes the square
post-emo indie (well, there certainly are a lot, so these are not necessarily my absolute favorite from the genre but only a few) : samiam, the promise ring, sunny day real estate, texas is the reason, knapsack
nu-emo is a term i use to describe bands like armor for sleep, taking back sunday, brand new, and some other bands of this ilk.
a few of mine are armor for sleep and brand new (amongst legions of others)
