Thanks everyone! :]]

I have heard of kids in glass houses, not you me at six though although I did check them out. They seem a bit on the emo side but they're alright. ^^

I've never really understood how to distinguish emo from other genres. The only thing I can really pick out that makes them distinct from Rock, Punk and Alternate is that the songs have a more obvious meaning. Confuse

The difference is indeed very hard to distinguish if you can at all, and unless you call yourself emo you really aren't. However the distinction is probably in lyrics and appearance, as well as the fan base.

Of course considering I'm from the US and there are a few cultural differences, who knows... that might be all the same over there. I liked how they sounded, emo's not necessarily a bad thing.

See, if you hadn't seen them would you have called them emo? Tongue

I think "emo" is plastered on any rock/alternate/punk bank that knows how to make it big. Fall Out Boy was punk, the moment they became popular people called them emo. Of course, emo is inaccurate now. "Scene" is the new term? As emo is associated with over-EMOtional wrist-slitters. I think I've got one or two "scene bands"... it's like disco/trance but with decent lyrics and instruments, rather than just a mix by a DJ.

I love music. Smile

No, scene bands are different and they are a much broader range. Infact it has an even looser definition than punk or emo! Boys like girls and All time low are scene bands, (despite the fact that they're pop/punk?) and so is Cobra Starship, and 3oh!3 (techno/hip hop)

People these days are fickle; we are exposed to hundreds of times the amount of information as those who lived a century ago and seek constant stimulation from new things; when we can't find anything new we just slip a new tag on it, change the expiration date and call it fresh.

I <3 Cobra Starship and 3OH!3! I know 3OH!3 before they were even heard of... I had their albums like half a year before their first single hit the charts. Grin

I don't think scene is a genre, tbh. I think Scene is the new word for POPular music, as pop has become a genre in itself these days. How can your label be pop? GRAH! Pop means popular! You can't sign a record deal claiming your popular music! Scene means current, ie, popular... so it makes sense. Wink

I actually have a friend who grew up with one of the guys from 3oh!3, she moved over here and told us all to listen to them a few years ago before anyone had a clue who they were. Honestly I never thought they were all that great, my GF went through her 'scene' phase and was obsessed with them for a while. I even took her to see them live. It was fun, even though the crowd was entirely made up of 16 year old girls.

Music nowadays... doesn't make any sense. It's just the corruption of artists to sell a product to their target audience and whatever they think will sell, makes it. Scene, emo... punk, it was all manipulated and used as a new way to advertise- i-tunes genres. =/. Which gets me to downloading and the overpricing of music and gahh don't get me started.

Should we start a topic in off-topic? It feels like this discussion is just building up momentum and we'll fill up this thread pretty fast.

Oh wait. This isn't Runescape. These threads don't inevitably crash after a lengthy discussion. =/

A runescape topic can have what, 2000 posts? This seems vastly superior.

Anyway... back on music...?

Music! Grin

Favourite bands atm: The Used, Hedley, You Me At Six, Mayday Parade and Kids In Glass Houses.

I pretty much love all the Fuelled By Ramon bands (most "emo"). Paramore, Fall Out Boy and Panic! At The Disco, etc. Brendon Urie, lead singer of Panic At The Disco, is my all time favourite singer... I <3 his voice lol. And now I sound like a teenage girl. Tongue

The lead singer of InMe has an amazing voice. It's so surreal seeing some of their old music videos... he's got that baby-faced chav look, and his voice is pretty darn epic. I actually thought it was a fan-video at first... Smile

You know, being american i still can't quite get the jist of what a chav is. It's not really a term we use around here, care to explain?

And my favorite bands are probably Emarosa (or anything with Jonny Craig in it, my all-time favorite vocalist) Pierce the Veil, Thursday, the Sleeping, Bomb the music industry, sum 41, The get up kids... I have a very broad taste.

A chav... urgh. You don't get gangs of hoodies hanging around on street corners? People who go around graffiti-ing, smashing windows and generally being vandals? Groups of people who'd turn and stab you for no real reason?

I would like to add that Chavs are more eastern/northen England. You don't really get 'em all that much elsewhere. I think most of 'em realised they had better things to do with their time than being hated. Tongue

Difference is, we don't have them concentrated simply to "north" or "east" they are so integrated into our society that it's a normal every day thing. They're simply a part of our culture anymore. =/

I'm glad there aren't too many of them in my area... or at least they aren't so hardcore.

I'm not so much into modern music. I like some of the more rock or metal stuff, but I can't stand any freaking hip-hop or rap. Makes me want to gouge my hair and rip out my eyes (and I meant to say it that way Confuse)

I like more classic rock than anything... (I know I'll get flamed for this if I say it elsewhere) I enjoy some country stuff too, but it's becoming more and more rock every day.

I like some folk, and I love classical music when it's played using basic rock-band instruments (guitar, drums, etc). Pacabell's Canon on guitar is amazing! Grin

As for classic rock... which I read as classical for a second. I don't dislike it... but I find it really boring to listen to. I like to stick an album on and listen to it all the way through. With classic rock I find myself wanting to put on something else 'cause I'm bored. Confuse

I only like rap when I'm driving around. Rap, punk rock, anything that gets me pumped for the day and makes me feel like I can do whatever I need to when I get where I'm going. Off the road though, I have very little tolerance for it.

My girlfriend liked rap when I met her. I slowly turned her away from it in stages, from kanye to the top-40 station to 3oh!3 to cobra starship to we the kings to all time low and finally I checked her ipod the other day and pierce the veil is her most-played band. Pleased. Am I good or what? lol.

I like classical music, and classic rock is very innovative and fun to listen to for a nostalgic sense... but it's not my slice of pie.

♫♪ Currently listening to: I'll Run (strings version) - The Cab ♪♫

We The Kings! <3

Sorry, I'm not used to people liking bands I've heard of. Tongue

I like r&b, but I'm not a huge fan of rap.

They need to reclassify music to be honest. Some are styles and some are general song meanings. Like... punk is anti-establishment, but that doesn't mean they can't be pop, rap or metal. Whereas rock is generally the composure of the band... pop is usually singers/groups, when it becomes a band it's rock. Kinda. Confuse

I know right, and don't even get me started on powerpop... that's basically a rock band that normal people like. =/.

I don't really have a problem with the way things are done now simply because I understand it, but I agree that it doesn't make any sense. It's generally based on norms, like rock groups typically having guitars, bass, drums and a singer... innovation usually comes in waves and these waves get a new genre title slapped on like a sticker. The emo wave, the scene wave, etc. even if it's not based on their actual music.
