You got it, dude!

Hell yeah! Someone who knows their stuff! Or maybe you just answered weird on the test, I dunno. Anyway, you know what real Screamo/Emo is! You're awesome!And remember, Screamo/Emo isn't dead, it's just hiding in the shadows of the underground, like always! ;)

Deathcore?

Alright, how can you call Deathcore, Screamo!? It doesn't even have screaming in it; it has growling, and pig squeals! Plus those really high screams that sound like you're ripping your throat, but oh well... Anyways, get your facts straight, dude...

Pop-Punk!?

Pop-Punk with depressing lyrics, that's what you're thinking about. Get your facts straight.And yes, I said Pop-Punk. Green Day is Pop-Punk too (or alternative rock). They're major sell-outs, don't even sound like Punk, and don't deserve the right to be labelled real punk.

Post-Hardcore...

Some Post-Hardcore bands are close to Emo/Screamo, but not quite there. Sorry... Wikipedia says Rites Of Spring is Post-Hardcore, but is widely viewed as Emo, though!

Get off this quiz... NOW!!!

    The Emo/Screamo music scene, and music. What does it mean to you?

      The music is about putting your heart and soul into your songs, and making sure you play your heart out at the shows. The scene is tight knitted, and underground.

      The music is about trying to be as heavy as fuck, with chuggy breakdowns, and pig squeals/growling. The scene is all over the place, and you can meet plenty of new people through it.

    • C. 

      The music is about being as depressing as possible, while still being poetic, and beautiful. The scene is about trying to let people know that they're not alone in the world, when it comes to their problems. Also, about being fans of the band.

      The music is about being unique, interesting, and singing about whatever the hell you want. The scene brings people together at shows, and supporting your band to the end.

    • E. 

      The music is about cutting, and other depressing things. The scene is about being in with what's in, and keeping up with the times. But it's non-conformist, all the way!
