*Emo* /ËiËmoÊ/ is a style of rock music characterized by melodic
musicianship and expressive, often confessional lyrics. It originated in
the mid-1980s hardcore punk movement of Washington, D.C., where it was
known as "emotional hardcore" or "emocore" and pioneered by bands such as
Rites of Spring and Embrace. As the style was echoed by contemporary
American punk rock bands, its sound and meaning shifted and changed,
blending with pop punk and indie rock and encapsulated in the early 1990s
by groups such as Jawbreaker and Sunny Day Real Estate. By the mid-1990s
numerous emo acts emerged from the Midwestern and Central United States,
and several independent record labels began to specialize in the style.
Emo broke into mainstream culture in the early 2000s with the
platinum-selling success of Jimmy Eat World and Dashboard Confessional and
the emergence of the subgenre "screamo". In recent years the term "emo" has
been applied by critics and journalists to a variety of artists, including
multiplatinum acts and groups with disparate styles and sounds.
In addition to music, "emo" is often used more generally to signify a
particular relationship between fans and artists, and to describe related
aspects of fashion, culture, and behavior.
