    Whats the deal with...... SCREAMO?

    Well, I was only getting comfortable with recently discovering what EMO is, and now all the middle class white teenage Americans are talking about... SCREAMO...

    According to WIKI:
    Screamo is a musical genre which evolved from emo, post-hardcore, more specifically hardcore emo in the early 1990s. Characteristic of the genre are hardcore screaming vocals and harmonized guitars


    What I find so fascinating about the whole Screamo thing is the arguements surrounding it. What is Screamo? What is real Screamo? Is Screamo actually a genre? And of course, why is everyone so obsessed with pigeon-holing everything?!

    A quick look here will show many screamo groups on last FM, some conflicting with others in many ways.

    The most hilarious I found was a group called "Learn the definition of Screamo, kid."
    Kind of ironic in my opinion.

    Maybe soon there will be a guide to how to be a true Screamo fan...
    Actually .. no, by then there will be a new "genre", "Dreamo" perhaps, or "Creamo" or "Steamo" or "extremo" ...

    Oh god.. dont google any of them.. Theyve already beat me to it.
