Fall out boy and P!ATD are NOT emo bands theyre just pop-punk and theyre also very shitty, i can write better music than them easily. Underoath is a hardcore band, or at least they used to be. and A7X and Bullet for my valentine are metalcore bands. NOT emo!

also, stop saying that all those emos dont even kno how emo started cuz nobody cares anyways and + i do. nooneyouwouldknow, youve mentioned about that like 10 times in all.

fall out boy, p!atd, underoath, a7x, bullet for my valentine = emo people bands

when i say theyre emo, thats what i mean. all the emo/hxc/scenester kids listen to them. doesnt matter 'cause they all have one thing in common: poseurs.

emo people may listen to them but my point is theyre not emo bands and + not every1 that listens to A7X or Bullet for my valentine is emo. & what about the old Underoath that most of their fans have nevr even heard b4. that wasnt an "emo people band" listen to A Message For Adrienne by Underoath its liek them at their best.
umm... im curious, what do you consider good music if you hate all those bands?

oh, and nooneyouwouldknow i didnt mean to be abhorrent wen i sed that u mentioned that so many times, so i hope u didnt take it that way...

my taste in music varies from industrial to any type of metal to old school goth. i dont even know what genre underoath fits under nor do i care, their sound sucks and theyre not metal...if you want real metal, go listen to slayer. or metallica, megadeth, van halen, motorhead, judas priest, black sabbath...theyre old school metal and still rockin till this day.

i'm listening to them now,'the edge of the world'. dont like the video too much, those glam goth whores, looks like they were Old Navy models and put them in sh*ttty goff clothing. doesnt it just piss you off that in any metal rock and even gothic videos, how the girls are all so trashy?! and none of them probably even listen to their music, you should watch akercocke's leviathan...glam goth alert! they can do better than that, and next time no poseurs!



stupid fug glam goth woman. get her out!!!

of course i like some of the bands of today but the majority i listen to are underground, and it should be kept that way.
