No mention of...[edit]

This may be ridiculous and I can't believe I took the effort to do this. But I am incredulous. Why is there no mention of BRIGHT EYES or AT THE DRIVE IN!? AHH. Maybe I'm off-base but both those bands I feel were pivotal/hugely influential offshoots of early emo. That Omaha scene deserves some mention (Cursive too!) If you want a source just listen to the album Fevers and Mirrors a few times (also, it's called fevers and mirrors..) Also sorry for treating this as a forum I just need answers.

Genres originated from[edit]

Can Math Rock be added in the subsequent origins of Emo due to key emo bands of the 90s often being accosiated with the genre. Dekai Averett (talk) 02:55, 24 September 2017 (UTC)

No evidence and only some bands are associated, so no. Adding to other topics.--MASHAUNIX 15:10, 24 September 2017 (UTC)

Separate into 3 Separate articles[edit]

I think we should split Emo into three articles: Emo (emocore), Midwest Emo, and Emo (subculture). Midwest Emo is a subgenre of indie rock and math rock, while the original Emo is a subgenre of hardcore punk and post-hardcore. They are two completely different sounds that should be distinguished on separate pages.

The emo subculture should also be on a separate page because it has little to do with the music and has a lot of other things that have to do with it, such as fashion and rebelliousness. So I think we should make them three separate pages.SuperLuigi22 (talk) 22:52, 28 September 2017 (UTC)SuperLuigi22

Also a lot of the stuff about modern pop punk-leaning emo should be moved to emo pop, but I'm not sure we have the sufficient sources.
