    Would you consider the Band " Staind" Emo?

    I think most Staind fans would resent that connection.

    They did get into a fight with the band Finch though, who I think are an emo band. They look like one.

    edit: my bad, it was Disturbed that got into that fight.

    You can also get in if you're Pennsylvanian Dutch, but that's more of a side clause than anything else.
     
  4. I'd agree to that.

    Staind are definitely not in any way Emo at all. 100%.

    They just suck :p

    No seriously, they're not emo, in an emo way, maybe in a nu-metal way, but not emo-emo..

    There is a new breed of Metal coming out that's even more whiny than Nu Metal, it's like Nu Metal with Emo kind of mixed in. As I Lay Dying is the premo example.
     
  9. I hate Nu Metal.

    I hate Emo.

    I don't think there's enough hatred in my being to withstand Emo Nu Metal. :scowl:

    Do yourself a favor then, if someone puts in an "As I lay Dying" CD... duck and cover.

    As I Lay Dying seems about as straight-forward metal as anything else, at least to me. I have the Shadows Are Security, and it sounds like the other melodic death metal CDs I have.
     
  14. Staind is what my 1 year old nephew did in his pants.

    Excuse me for being out of the loop here, but what is "Emo"?

    I guess this is the first sign that I'm not going to be able to identify with my kids and I'm only 24 :)
