Comments from Youtube

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

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

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!

Frank Huang : 3:32 - One track off, that's "Do You Know Who You Are?" This is so sick though.

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.

Luke Rogers : Thank you for doing this, I'm a bit of an emo enthusiast.

WildTulipan : Since when is The Postal Service an emo band? xD

jake p : That for want of riff is so iconic to me

Рядовой Шутник : hey, this is not "Back And To The Left". This is "Do You Know Who You Are ?".

Sanbox_is_a_studio : Back and to left doesn't sound like that

Ian Mainstream : Rial imo

Sir Henners : The Cure?

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)

Stephen Max : I kept waiting for 2006, one of my favorite years, and then the video ended, and I promptly reexamined the title.

Leon Phase : Nice.

Daniel Fourie : Who is the song Want by at 1:27? I can't make out the artwork name

Innit Though? : I don't like emo as a whole, but I've been getting into bands that could be considered emo. This is pretty awesome, I saw a few of those bands - Jimmy Eat World and Saves The Day and some other stuff.

Xesi : thank you for including Brand New my dude <3
