    Jesse! Which emo and hardcore bands are you listening to?

    John, I bet you know better than me. But I was surprised to see Wikipedia (and the world?) classifying both Weezer and Jimmy Eat World as emo. That skewed my perception a bit. I always loved those two bands, but thought they were too pop too ever be associated with emo. Maybe it makes more sense if the music is more about the emotions than the politics. As for the hardcore… give me a few more years to figure it out!?!
