TheSpectreTom : Amazing stuff as always. Looking forward to 2006-2018!

dingus : "Real Emo" only consists of the dc Emotional Hardcore scene and the late 90's Screamo scene. What is known by "Midwest Emo" is nothing but Alternative Rock with questionable real emo influence. When people try to argue that bands like My Chemical Romance are not real emo, while saying that Sunny Day Real Estate is, I can't help not to cringe because they are just as fake emo as My Chemical Romance (plus the pretentiousness). Real emo sounds ENERGETIC, POWERFUL and somewhat HATEFUL. Fake emo is weak, self pity and a failed attempt to direct energy and emotion into music. Some examples of REAL EMO are Pg 99, Rites of Spring, Cap n Jazz (the only real emo band from the midwest scene) and Loma Prieta. Some examples of FAKE EMO are American Football, My Chemical Romance and Mineral EMO BELONGS TO HARDCORE NOT TO INDIE, POP PUNK, ALT ROCK OR ANY OTHER MAINSTREAM GENRE (love the video, some great songs here)

Megan O : Please do a full instrumental of "Cute Without the E"!!!

SundaysEnd : This is a great medley although I wouldn't consider Faith, The Postal Service or Bright Eyes to be emo.

Mauricio Santoscoy : What about history of emo 2005-2018 ?

SugarpillCovers : Let's all just try to hold back the 'why is there no ____ in the video' comments.

Daniel Fourie : Really enjoyed this video! Not sure if you'd consider it, but would you ever make an emo-pop melody? Like songs from Hellogoodbye, Cute is what we aim for, forever the sickest kids, metro station etc?

Joseph Grebe : Who plays angry son?


Royce Insanity : What about silverstein? hawthorne heights?

Jason Keller : I love you for playing Indian Summer. Really good selection of early Emo. I wouldn't be opposed to hearing "scene" stuff either, if you plan on doing another medley from 2005-2018. Lots of great revival, midwestern, screamo/skramz in that era! Not to mention Emo's weirder mainstream cousin that I think most people call Emo. Still think it ought to be on here. Regardless, this is fantastic. Thank you!
