just discovered this strange hip-hop band - they don't usually use samples and are actually a band (guiarist, drummer and bassist) plus the lead rapper...

nice catchy songs that tell of Myspace and the internet generation plus the typical poppy stuff

They have guest vocals from The Academy Is... vocalist and Fall Out Boy vocalist on their newest album

(also they were in the vampire FOB video along with P!atd and TAI...)

Wow I'm impressed by these guys.
Not impressed that they are collaborating with EMO bands.

Let's all take the rest of this thread to debate which bands are and which bands are not emo.
I still don't even understand what emo is or sounds like or looks like or whatever I should be saying I don't know about, urbandictionary doesn't help me.

People who sing about emotions probably.
There's just certain characteristics that make an emo band from photography to album covers to the music itself.

FOB and P!'s singers both have that same wank sound which I hate.

A band just automatically falls into an Emo category.

Don't ask me I just make it up.
