  • 10 great emo songs by non-emo bands

    by Andrew Sacher

    Our friends Washed Up Emo launched this site where you can type in a band's name and get the "emo council"'s verdict on whether or not said band is emo. It's a fun/funny site with some indisputable ones (like American Football), some that will surely anger people (sorry Fall Out Boy fans), and of course some on-the-fencers (let the Jawbreaker arguments begin).

    ‘I don’t think Christmas Day is quite the time to be trading slaps,’ writes the anti-monarchist

    Morrissey says he rejected an offer to rival Her Majesty’s annual televised Christmas Day message.
