This a list of screamo bands including artists who have played subgenres such as crunkcore at some point in their careers.

Screamo is a music genre which predominantly evolved from emo, among other genres, in the early 1990s. The term "screamo" was initially applied to a more aggressive offshoot of emo that developed in San Diego in 1991, which used usually short songs that grafted "spastic intensity to willfully experimental dissonance and dynamics."[1] Screamo is a particularly dissonant style of emo influenced by hardcore punk[2] and uses typical rock instrumentation, but is noted for its brief compositions, chaotic execution, and screaming vocals. The genre is "generally based in the aggressive side of the overarching punk-revival scene,"[2] although the term can be vague.[2] The genre was pioneered by bands like Heroin and Antioch Arrow.[3]
