Bands That Are Called "Emo" But Are NotAny real emo fan knows that these bands simply are NOT EMO!
The Top Ten
Band: *plays alt, pop-punk, or post-hardcore with some emotionally depressive lyrics*
Emos: It's free real estate - yungstirjoey666
I am very confused. They said they are emo but they also said they are not emo. I like them either way.
My Chemical Romance isn't an emo band, I do listen to emo bands and My Chemical Romance is definitely not emo, this is the best band I have ever listened to, and they do have a lot of emo fans (like me)
True, actually, they even said that they aren't. Started insulting emo actually, but still my life, not going to lie.
Knives and Pens was kind of emo; when they ditched their metalcore phase they become more glam metal - yungstirjoey666
They're only called emo because they wear a lot of black. - ThatStrangeKid42
I think that they are emo because of their songs
Leave Andy alone...emo is more than just the way the music sounds. It's the message it sends to your heart. It inspires you to feel, to keep going, to be stronger, that you are not nothing. Everyone has their own band that helps them. Don't argue about it, embrace it. ❤
Not emo, not even screamo. Just because they scream, doesn't mean they're a screamo band. - ThatStrangeKid42
FOB are my favourite band ever but they are not emo! I couldn't believe it when I first heard someone call them emo! They are pop-punk/pop-rock NOT emo!
They are mainstream not Emo
Too pop-ish to be emo. - ThatStrangeKid42
Well i’m a fan of them and I can say that they are not emo. I think they’re more like punk
They're not emo. They never claimed to be emo. They're alternative metal/post-grunge.
"Pain" is kinda poser-emo. That's it. - ThatStrangeKid42
Wait, they are concerned to be emo? what...
When I first saw them I thought they were but I didn't know anything about tjem so I just assumed they were emo. Lmao they really aren't.
Since 'American Idiot' came out, everyone seems to think Green Day are emo, purely because Billie Joe started to wear eyeliner more often. Green day are NOT emo, Green Day are punk rock, pop punk and alternative rock.
Just because Billie wears eyeliner, it doesn't mean they're emo.
It's because of Billie wearing eyeliner, isn't it?
Right, people call them emo because of the stupid fanbase made of scene and emo kids.
Stop hating on people who try to help others. Being suicidal isn't cowardly, making someone feel so bad that they want to die, that's cowardly.
FYI, these guys started off as a deathcore band. That's the furthest you can get from emo. - ThatStrangeKid42
Love 'em, but they are definitely not emo!
They attract an emo fanbase, but are not emo in any way. - yungstirjoey666
Yeah, I laughed too when people said they were emo. what? They're electronic rock, you dumbs hits!
Amazing but not emo
Huh. I had no idea people considered 30 Seconds To Mars emo. You learn something new everyday.
They can have emo songs related to dark themes, but they are not emo.
They are a great band and they have a lot of emotional songs but they are not emo
I love Hollywood Undead, but they are not emo.
They are not emo... But their AMAZING!
So annoying when people call this "emo"...It's Nu-Metal and later became Alternative Metal, then became pop. (which is also when I stopped liking the band lol) - DDante
Edgy and emo are two different things
And I wouldn't consider them nu metal either
More like electronic rap rock, maybe a little hardcore punk - yungstirjoey666
Um... These guys write happy songs. - ThatStrangeKid42
Yeah, yeah, Hayley's hair... So what? - ThatStrangeKid42
Who tf said Paramore was emo?
I get why metalheads dismiss core as metal, but SS is not even close to emo. In fact, their songs are basically more anti-emo. - yungstirjoey666
Mitch Lucker himself said he hated emo kids and thought they "ruined metal". Mitch was a true metalhead. Not an emo. - ThatStrangeKid42
They are metal
Do you REALLY think Ronnie Radke OR Craig Mabbit is emo? Come on, people. - ThatStrangeKid42
Damn I love this band but I still don't get it what is emo about it?
I mean metalcore it's about a fusion between metal and punk
But I can agree that they scream a little too much
But I like it! :D
Also I don't have any clue about the first album with roonie but I thought that one was emo but whatever
I still love etf and listen to this war is ours
It's definitely metalcore and not emo - Idiot244
How the hell is this band emo?! It's definitely Christian Alternative Rock - Soulstealer
They're not emo, they have many different genres and deep lyrics
They're trap and pop for those people claiming "they fit no genre they're too unique"
A lot of emo kids listen to them but it doesn't mean that they are
They are more pop actually
Edgy, not emo - yungstirjoey666
Anyone who thinks she is emo is delusional. If you think she's emo, you LITERALLY need to get tested by a psychiatrist.
I love her but seriously she is pop
She is a great singer but not emo, definitely not
She dyed her hair and now she's emo? Like what
If people really think this band is emo, they really need to educate themselves. - Soulstealer
They did wear eyeliner and black in their early days, but that's not even close to emo. - yungstirjoey666
What who even said they were emo?
They're not even close to Emo.
They may not be emo, but they still suck anyway.
Calling them Emo is an insult to Emo
Stop associating us emos with BOTDF emo is not trash 🗑
