We asked the BuzzFeed Community which misconceptions about emo music annoy them most. Let's set the record straight.
1. First of all, the term "emo" isn't even our favorite way to phrase it. We just kind of accept it, tbh.
2. But if that's what we're gonna call it, know that it does NOT all sound the same. In fact, it encapsulates many genres, including pop-punk and indie.
3. Though there are quite a few mainstream emo bands, the list of artists in the genre goes far beyond those bands — there's a lot to discover!
