On the subject of 'good' acoustic Emo songs, I couldn't help but say what I thought of the "Emo epidemic".
And how many supposed "emo" kids would even know when that term originated and which bands it was applied to?
And it had nothing to do with:
a) Cutting yourself.
b) Talking about suicide like it makes you tough.
c) Losing all sense of depth perception with a stupid haircut.
d) Wearing a standard black uniform with eye liner.
e) Being a sad sack.
My first day back online and you make me laugh...well done that's exactly how I see things.
Relax dude, the kids rule the industry @ the mo and prob admin the site. If not, nevermind it's a whack site then I guess.

All they whinge about is that no one likes them! Well its true, no one does. There just as bad as chavs in this country! :roflmao:
YOOOOOOOOOOOO other than being younger and not seen as many bands I'm right with ya HELL YES!!!
I HATE Emo...there I said it. I can't stand these bands now I'm glad I'm outta school doy, when I was in school Nu-Metal was all the rage...that and Eminem...
I'm not OK I promise? OK fine, so your not ok...Guess what...nor am I BEAT IT KID you get everything paid for! What have you got to not be ok about? LOL
Also, I see a thing about Goth? Yep! that was there too. And Chav's were called "Townies" then...
I'm only 20 but I'm a musician and I know history too and it's funny how things come around like the big emo fringe. That's not original.
and these uniforms..."Prince Charming, Prince Charming, Ridicule is nothing....." AHEM sorry but...anyone else see a similarity?
So anyways. To the dudes above mensioning Metal bands being "the shit" such as Motorhead and metallica (Old Metallica that is) I salute you. I love Fear Factory and Meshuggah @ the top of my Metal list. They may be new but they are ace. I loooooooove detuned guitars and rhythms give me more enjoyment outta music than 1000 notes and so I jus love how these two bands lock into the grove. Even Meshuggah with thier time sigs which are, BTW, most of the time actually in 4/4 jus cleverly done so not actually that strange really...
