Top 10 Songs People Call "Emo" that Aren'tThese songs aren't emo and emo's a punk subgenre so eh.
The Top Ten
Numb isn't emo, and Linkin Park isn't an emo song. Trust me, I love Linkin Park, but they aren't emo
There is nothing emo like about this song.
No offense, but pretty much every song on this list is extremely emo. - Brobusky
When people call this song "edgy" or emo it does get old.

There is nothing emo about this song.
Again this song does not qualify as emo.
Didn't really find it emo... - TwilightKitsune
Lol not emo AT ALL
Um, My Chemical Romance is kind of the king of Emo music. Most of these songs on this list aren't emo, that is true. There's a difference between Emo and "edgy" that people seem to not understand. I think most people could agree that Linkin Park and Evanescence are not emo but have some edgy themes in their music. - cjWriter1997
Not really all that emo like if anything I'm Not Okay is their only song that comes close to emo.
This literally is the emo anthem... it's emo. My Chemical Romance is the most classic emo band, get it right. - emomusic

It might be a meme but it's not funny and it's not emo.
Emo is a subculture, not just a genre, most of these songs are enjoyed by the subculture but this song is enjoyed by pretty much everyone. - MrQuaz680
Jesus Christ, how many people have called me emo for liking Gorillas. How in hell is Gorillas emo?
Nah this is somewhat emo.
Song title explains it's self enough said.
I don't understand why many people think Paramore is an emo band, sure they had the look and they were popular back then in the "commercial emo" age, but that doesn't mean anything
Is nothing like their songs are trying to hard to be edgy or talk about depression or that kind of stuff
If you hear real emo bands like Brand New, Taking Back Sunday or Sunny Day Real State (the real kings of emo music, not My Chemical Romance) you will know their style and the Paramore style (and some other bands style) are very different
Also emo. My favorite My Chemical Romance song, though. - Sop
