In the mid-2000s, both Fall Out Boy and PATD had a few hits in Germany, but nobody ever associated them with emo. For that, their visual style was simply not emo enough. We had Tokio Hotel and Cinema Bizarre, and even rappers with more gimmicky looks, so we expected huge anime-like wigs from emo. Back then, we simply called these groups punk. - Martin_Canine

This Hamburger Schule band already had the American emo haircuts in the 90s, and their covers looked very hipster-ish, plus they wrote lyrics about teenage life, being different and emotional outlet. Funny thing: to this day, critics and sophisticated serious music lovers totally love this group to death. Like, in lists about the greatest German albums compiled by music journalists you have about five of their records somewhere in top positions. If you want to be seen as intellectual in music circles, just say you listen to them. But actually, they never had that much of a commercial success and the wide public doesn't really know them. That feels... kind of like a reversed stereotype for this kind if music. - Martin_Canine

Despite popular belief, they are actually visu, not emo. The group formed at an anime convention, but the huge success of Tokio Hotel made record labels interested in anything remotely resembling emo (including punk and pseudo-gothic teenage groups) to market them to the same target group. - Martin_Canine
They started off as a teenage punk group, and around the time Tokio Hotel started a massive hype they got recruited by a record label to jump on the bandwagon and market them in a similar way. With success. Their second album, released in 2006 (Tokio Hotel's breakthrough was one year earlier), entered the top ten. Now with Tokio Hotel's hiatus, this trend completely ended very suddenly and all of the artists of this movement were forgotten, except for TH. They either disbanded, quit or simply kind of vanished. But weirdly, Killerpilze stayed together and became an actual, mature full punk band still active, even though they don't have much commercial success anymore. - Martin_Canine
