    Alt./Emo Rock

    Anyone listen to this sort of music? I'm talking about bands like:

    Mayday Parade
    Go Radio
    Paramore
    All-time Low
    A Day to Remember

    Would love to chat with some other people who love this stuff.

    Would Muse count?

    I guess. For some reason, I don't really care for them; but they're moderately similar to my kinda stuff.

    Re: Alt./Emo Rock

    I love the first and second generation "emo" bands from the 1980s and 1990s, and there has been a strong revival of that sound in the last couple years, but most of what got slapped with the emo label in the early to mid aughts is next to unlistenable, IMO...

    I am old and stuck in my ways. I recognize those band names (I know I like a Paramore song but have no idea which one), but don't recall the music. You could help us old-folk out and post a clip or two. BTW, I love everything I have ever heard from Muse.
    What if this is as good as it gets?

    BC, IDK if emo is the right term for my stuff anyway. Its hard to find exactly what genre it falls under. Somewhere between emo, punk, and alternative rock.

    Captain, my favorite Paramore song:



    A few more favorites from Mayday and GR:

    I like Muse a lot, but am not generally crazy about emo. I enjoy Paramore, but don't go out of my way to listen to them. Same for My Chemical Romance, which I might like better if fewer of their fans were middle school girls.

    Somehow I expected Vampire Weekend to be emo, but they aren't, and I like them.

    I was into that stuff when I was a young teenager. If that's your bag, you'll probably graduate onto stuff like this at some point:

    Oh yeah, that's right up my alley. I know where OP is coming from, if I'm not mistaken he's a younger poster, I know I listened to a lot of that stuff when I was younger. Now I'm thinking about putting together playlists and stuff.

    I'll drop some links in this post for anyone interested in checking out more in this style of music


    DFA is a little different than the rest of this, but if you're into it, I think you'd like them:

    A couple of iconic post-hardcore bands from 15 years ago and then a couple recent bands I think you would like too:
