ALSO, just to touch on this in here as well.

ALSO, just to touch on this in here as well. If people in 3rd world countries are "used to" all those things over there, why cant people here get over themselves, too? Oh, that's right, they don't and neither do people over there. ;) That is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. kthx


Just because somebody may have it worse, doesn't mean you lose your right to be upset. Depression is depression, no matter to what degree.


That's exactly what I'm saying. You made it out like,"Oh, but they deal with it all the time, so it's not as depressing to them." Next time think before you belittle entire groups of people, whether you did that on purpous or not, it may make them feel even more worthless. ;)

So you're saying that Panic didn't suck that bad live until the played the VMAs? You're also saying that they didnt completely disgrace Smashing Pumpkins and Radiohead before then too, I suppose....


Thats not what I'm saying. They ruined them becuase they made P!ATD become just another one of those girl bands with annoying, preppy, girl followers. AND I've heard I Write Sins Not Tradgedies about 5 times in one hour on the radio. What makes it worse is they edit SO much out of the original song which makes it suck even more.

^ If anything, Panic "ruined" themselves by agreeing to play. It's not like MTV forced them at gun point.

I still don't believe they were good at any point in time, ever.

Whao, I heard that song a few days ago and it really has stuck in my head. I love it.

I used to like MCR, but then I went of them for a while, but this song is really good.

I didn't think Panic at the Disco was from the DC area. Seems weird seeing as I went to high school in Vegas with Ryan and it hasn't been that long since graduation / their hitting it big.

IMHO, they way people use EMO these days isnt even correct. the music isnt EMO. the fashion is EMO. The music you call "emo" now is a bunch of kids that most likely werent good at playin hardcore or punkrock and probably werent in any scenes like that cause they probably just were not true enough. Add on the fact that they have good looks, nice haircuts and probably come from money(maybe, its all who you know) helps. Its called marketing. The fashion is marketable now. so bands are getting scooped up and spit out. Real "emo" back in the day was almost hardcore music, real hardcore , but they added these softer moments to add a little more to it and show a soft side.

My Chemical Romance, to me, was never emo. they are just a unique rock band. people think they were emo because of fashion and a false idea of the music scene they were in. Panic! at the disco sounds more like Broadway musical stuff and rock more than punkrock or " emo".

theres emotion in all music. so really everything has emo in it. its just a stupid fashion that will pas slike 80's hairmetal.

Thank you very much. I've been tearing my hair out at this thread because it drives me round the bend when people label stuff emo when it plainly isn't. A lot of what is labelled emo today is labelled by the magazines and the music television which brands it thusly, and leads to lot a of misconception as to what emo really is.

Bands like Fugazi, Quicksand, Texas Is The Reason would what I define as being emo. They all came from the ashes of hardcore bands gone by.
