The definition of emo music is as follows: a rock music genre characterized by an emphasis on emotional expression, sometimes through confessional lyrics. Let’s be real—we all went through an emo band phase in the early/mid-2000’s. Panic! At The Disco, My Chemical Romance, Blink 182—they all seemed to be able to express what was going on in our hearts and behind our goopy eyeliner.
