    Emo is a term so overused now no one really knows what the **** it is. It wasn't about lyrics. It was an offshoot from Hardcore. Emo was defined around the bands that sang in a fashion that tried to connect with and make the audience feel what the singer was feeling.

    Now it is used for anything about angst, and it mirrors the 90s that was "goth" when everything that was kinda out there was called Goth.

    Also Metal is a genre which is focused on Heavy guitar and Drums, not the singer, which is why the singer can do whatever the **** he wants to and it is still metal.

    jenny you stupid woman stfu

    metal emphasises musicianship instead of vocals and all your ****ty vocals in RnB and pop are ****ing **** anyway. hell there are very few REAL vocalists around these days i havent heard one, NOT ONE good vocalist in mainstream music.

    listen to panteras cemetary gates. you are a stupid fool

    Vocals are essential in music that isn't a genre without vocals. If you suck at singing then nobody likes your band. Don't even act like Metal is the end all genre. I've heard better guitarists and drummers outside and vocalists. I mean it's kind of sad when your instruments have to drown out your vocalist to make the song remotely tolerable. Don't get me wrong, I like some metal, but most of it sucks. All of its sub genres are even worse. I also wouldn't hate on Pop when the greatest musician to ever live, Madonna, is the epitomy of music.

    LOL MADONNA! THE EPITOME OF LIP SYNCING AND BLONDNESS! AHAHAHAHHAHA. michael jackson pwns her so bad and hes a pedo

    metal places emphasis on guitars and drums. its not about the vocals. some songs dont even have vocals. the screaming vocals, on the bands that scream, are so it fits the music better.

    ofc there are better musicians outside the genre there are still lots of good musicians in that genre. try top dream theatre as a band in terms of musicianship. they have immense musicianship.

    ha madonna. you make me rofl.

    Madonna has never lip synched. Prove me wrong. She is the queen of pop. She's much more famous than any metal band for a reason. You're silly because you're blind and biased towards music genres. I've already said I like some metal and acknowledged that not all of them are ****ty bands, but most are. Screaming vocals and grunts are the worst. Pretty much all new metal is bad.

    As I Lay Dying, Atreyu, Heaven Shall Burn, etc. I like newer thrash metal, and black/some death metal the most.

    @Jenny; Popular doesn't mean it's good. Few examples: Christianity, The Gap clothing, Ford vehicles.
    Radio station DJs don't get to play what they want to any longer. They play what they are told to.
