Question 84

Question: Is emo actually a different style of rock music or is it actually just shitty rock music played by a sissy boy with a lame haircut?
 David T. (unsuspectingly via Twitter) 

Answer: Calling Emo rock is like calling MTV Music Television. You can call it whatever the fuck you want, but we all know the truth. Emo, an acronym for Elvish Men with Ovaries, is the opposite of what is rock. If we used the word rock literally, then Emo would be classified as pillow music. On my list of top 1 billion rock songs, there is not one emo song. In fact, The Jingle Bell Rock and the themes songs to Fraggle Rock and The Flintstones: Viva Rock Vegas, all made it onto that list ahead of anything emo.
