Post-Emotional Hardcore Punk Rock[edit]

I believe, that instead of grouping the multitude of bands described as "Emo" by this page, their should be a new genre created named "Post-Emo". This genre would include bands that have tooken inspiration from the original Emocore bands but have changed the sound of Emocore, but that cannot be accuratley described as "Emo-Pop". I belive this should happen because a music genre's sound cannot change, but it can evolve into a new form. Dj21299 (talk) 00:06, 17 March 2013 (UTC)

Cap'n Jazz[edit]

How does the 90's emo section not make reference to Cap'n Jazz? They were extremely influential, and their members went on to be in a number of the bands mentioned later in the article — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.82.226.170 (talk) 01:28, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

I added a bit about them awhile back. I Am A Sandwich (talk) 03:16, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Why not include something on top of article that say its based on big sources[edit]

Many guys come here saying that emo is not what the article say, and etc... and then people say wikipedia is about reliable sources and not about being right and etc..
Why not just state that in the top of the article. So, with it would sort of imply "hey the article may not be right, but complain about the big sources, its a wikipedia problem (well maybe the problem of wikiepdia rules and not of its writrers)"
Before someone this is a bad idea, explain why, because we are just stating what is actually happening. If that is what we are doing and is a perfectly right thing to do, there is no problem is telling what we are doing (well in the case of false flags stating the reason we are saying false stuff, would be a bad idea. But the example that happen with false flags doenst apply here, since we explain on the talk page, to the users, why the page is the way it is)
