    I never saw the appeal in screamo.

    i mean i like guttural noises and screaming where they fit -- but I can't stand any song where it's just all screaming and incoherence.

      Whoa, whoa, whoa, people... let's not all start hating on a music genre!
      To clarify, i'm learning to scream because it'll both help me in gaining better control of my voice, and a lot of metal, rock, and heavy rock make use of screams in the vocals.
      Personally, I don't listen to much screamo, but i've also not heard much.

        I don't really see the appeal in screamo. I mean I love listening to rock and metal, but there's only a few screamo songs that I find decent.

        I'm open to all genres but I haven't yet found a screamo song I like. System of a Down doesn't count right?

            I've used like maybe 3 or 4 different themes since I joined this site. Can't remember the last time I had a theme though, but it's been awhile.

            i change my avatar and signature way too many times for it to be healthy. and i've been doing it waaay before other people who seem to change it constantly do it. and i take no pride in that.

            and speaking of changing things i have changed my avatar for today. it's v-day themed enough okok.

              Screamo is essentially hardcore punk-influenced emo.

              Also, before anyone asks, NO, screamo is not related to metal in any way.

              These answers are one of the few things Yahoo answers got right:

              Quote:

              Ignorant teenagers think any type of band that uses any type of "unclean" vocals is screamo because to them, it's "screaming". They probably heard some death metal band and since death metal is abundant with growls they think its screamo because of the vocals.

              One time some kid on youtube said "screamo music is when someone screams in the song"

              The idiocy of todays youth makes me sad, it makes me want to be 28
              Quote:
              For some reason screaming vocals have been attributed to metal by many people, when it is actually a punk trait. The harsh vocals that are found in metal are usually just growls or shrieks, not actual screaming as such. People just dont seem to realize that metal is a genre defined by the instrumentation, vocal style does not matter. You can scream all you want, but unless you use heavily distorted guitars, and just a general heaviness to the music then it isnt metal.

              The aggression of hardcore, screamo etc is found in the vocals, while in metal it is the instrumental sound. Alot of people assume that vocal aggression automatically means its metal.
              I hope you all learned something today and I hope you no longer equate "screamo" with metal. My blood pressure thanks you for your attention.

              screamo is metal. i will not change my opinion.

              Actually I don't care, I'll listen to anything that sounds good.

              Which means anything that doesn't have garden spades running over tiles as a sound effect

              A form of metal or not, I think we can all agree that the people that sing screamo really need to have their tongues ripped out.

              Agreed. I can't think of anything else that can be as ear grating as screamo. It's definitely not something that I would want to wake up to.

                Oh, no, not just their tongues. For debasing punk, metal, and music in general in the eye of the general public, they deserve to have the following things removed:

                - Eyes
                - Genitals
                - Intenstines
                - Colon
                - Spleen
                - Stomach
                - Pancreas
                - Liver
                - Heart (hey, these emo punks keep screaming about their "heart being ripped out because my girlfriend left me", why not give them what they want?)
                - Lungs (not like they're going to last long anyway with all the screaming whiny lyrics they do)
                - Whatever other organs I may have missed.

                EDIT: Also, sig change to match the topic.

                  I am too lazy to make a new theme now.

                  Meanwhile... Happy Valentines Day, although its more like a Forever Alone Day.

                  Some guy in my school decided to make a twitter account and asked lots of people to make thier confessions there, anonymously of course. Although I don't have twitter, I went there and read all the tweets there and I had lots of fun laughing.
