That must be why I have it Holy Crap.gif
Interesting list, though... I didn't know that a lot of those qualified as "emo".

I found one too. Holy Crap.gif
That's more post-hardcore/modern progressive rock.

I got it from Everybody Hurts but it seems pretty accurate to me.

According to the book, it is essential because:

"Because it inspired a whole new generation of emo songwriters to write songs with a pen in one hand a thesaurus in the other."

Fix'd Holy Crap.gif
But the themes aren't emo at all... Maybe some of the vocals are. It's like... About space and stuff.

Failure.
They're progressive rock with electronica elements.
Duh.

Not necessarily essential...typically it's going to be something very influential to the genre and the first album or the first well known album from the band.

While I have to agree that Muse isn't emo...well, I just don't really like them.

EDIT: Oh wait I already knew that... I forgot it only has to do with lyrics though or something and that's what throws me off

Emo is weird...it's like a sub genre of rock along but it also has a bunch of sub genres... like emo pop/punk, emo hardcore, screamo, etc.
