Best Emo Albums

PewPewAssassin
Emo is a genre of music that is based around emotion AND IS NOT JUST HOW THE BAND LOOKS! The albums are ranked in their individual quality and not their overall influence on the genre.

The Top Ten

1 The Black Parade - My Chemical Romance

YES

Why My Chemical Romance?
Why Twenty One Pilots?
Why Fall Out Boy?
Why Panic! At the Disco?
Why Tokyo Hotel?
In the name of god. Who add them in the list? - Pato_cargo

2 Diary - Sunny Day Real Estate

I really love My Chemical Romance and such, but they're not actually emo. SDRE on the other hand has kind of started emo and the album on itself was absolutely great and revolutionary

THE ORIGINAL EMO ALBUM. GOD BLESS SDRE. IT IS MILES BETTER THAN EVERY My Chemical Romance ALBUM. AND that's COMING FROM AN My Chemical Romance FAN.

This list sucks
Paramore?
Panic! at the Disco?
Fall Out Boy?
Blink-182?
Tokyo Hotel?
Twenty One Pilots?
Halsey? Who the heck thought those bands are/were emo? Is that's emo for you I don't wanna imagine what would be your reaction to Nine Inch Nails - Pato_cargo

3 Pinkerton - Weezer

I have never thought that Weezer were any where near Emo. - cjWriter1997

4 The Devil and God are Raging Inside of Me - Brand New
5 Deja Entendu - Brand New
6 American Football - American Football

This is probably tied with Sunny Day Real Estate’s Diary for me. I think the guitar work on this album is very beautiful and dynamic, and that, combined with the very soft vocals, makes for a very singular, and great, emo experience.

7 Vessel - Twenty-One Pilots

PewPewAssassin no they aren't, they are not a punk band and they don't have any idea of what emo is, just make songs about depression and sadness which another band (even pop artist) can sing - Pato_cargo

I wouldn't consider TOP an "emo band", but out of their 2 studio albums I think this one nudges out Blurryface

They are are definitely an emo band, just not rooted in rock or pop punk like others that came before. - PewPewAssassin

MY TWO CHIDREN JUSH DUN AND TYLER JOESEPH HHGHQSGHG THEY ARE GOD! I LOVE TWENTY ONE PIRATES

8 Weezer - Weezer

I see why Pinkerton could be considered as emo, but not Blue lol - HawkWithAnOpinion

9 Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge - My Chemical Romance

Though I'm in the minority, I think this album is better than the black parade. Before you disagree, listen to Thank You For The Venom, it's a straight bop.

To The End, enough said

Better than The black parade, listen to thank you for the venom if you don't agree. Underrated!
