I'm not sure what emo is so could someone tell if these are emo? :?:

The Strokes - 12:51 (or was it 12:54 :?: )
deadLine - Talk to Me

Thanks. :wave:

The Strokes, not really. Maybe they do have kind of a punkish sound to them, but they are probably more "rock" than "punk".

Haven't heard the other band.

So, emo means a type of punk, right? Is it like softer punk?

If anyone needs proof, just try "Oh! Sweeth Nuthin'"

Emo is "emotional hardcore"
And if you're talking about the Deadline I think you're talking about then there is no way in hell that they are emo.

No, I'm not talking about the English punk band named Deadline, but about the German band named deadLine.

Singer with high-pitched plaintive voice, usually, and repetitive wall of guitar sound, with whiney melodies.

The Strokes, though I don't really like them, are not particularly whiney. They're more nonchalent sounding or lazy.

Emo is good only in small doses.

12-23-2003, 08:31 PM
And no, The Strokes aren't emo.
