^Greenwald, p. 46. "What Braid did better than any other band of its era was truly live the egalitarian spirit of emo. If emo is, on one level, the ability to move from sympathy for song subjects to outright empathy, then Braid blurred the line even further, engendering empathy for itself."
^Nanna, Bob (in Zemler). "When we first started it was [that] we kind of said, 'Yeah, we're an emo band' because the bands we liked we thought were emo bands - like Jawbox or Fugazi.

The band [Capital Lights] has ditched all traces of screamo in favor of an emo, power pop, and punk rock blend...But while relationship songs like "Out of Control" and "Remember the Day" avoid specific clichés, they still resort to thematic clichés—precisely the kind of stuff you'd expect from other emo and punk bands.

Alternative rock here is still suffering under the weight of brit-pop and brit-rock sounds, and for anything more "alternative" you have to turn to the upsurge of metal bands in the underground.

^Huey, Steve. „Drive Like Jehu: Biography”. Allmusic. Accesat în . Drive Like Jehu had a tremendous impact on the evolution of hardcore punk into emo [...] The term 'emo' hadn't yet come into wider use, and while Drive Like Jehu didn't much resemble the sound that word would later come to signify, they exerted a powerful pull on its development. Moreover, they did fit the earlier definition of emo: challenging, intricate guitar rock rooted in hardcore and performed with blistering intensity, especially the frenzied vocals.
^Reid, Brendan (). „Album Review: Drive Like Jehu - Yank Crime”. Pitchfork Media. Accesat în . It's often easy to forget that DLJ were considered emo in their day; Froberg's howls of 'Ready, ready to let you in!' on 'Super Unison' seem like a sick parody of stylish vulnerability. Then the song mutates into a gorgeous, snare-drum rolling open sea, and everything you've ever liked (and still like) about this genre in its purest form comes flooding back.

If you're a rock fan in the early 21st century, it certainly should, as it seems like just about every up-and-coming melodic rock band owed a thing or two to the aforementioned style/approach. And the Long Island, NY, outfit Edison Glass certainly fits this description on their 2006 debut, A Burn or a Shiver...While there is certainly a familiarity to the proceedings, such standout tracks as "Today Has Wings" and the album-opening "My Fair One" prove that Edison Glass is a cut above your average emo band.
^Cummings, Tony. „Edison Glass - A Burn Or A Shiver | CROSS RHYTHMS REVIEW”. Cross Rhythms. Accesat în . If you thought all American rock emanating from the CCM companies was formulaic riffs-by-numbers, this band from Long Island are going to amaze and excite you. Somehow they've blended '70s prog rock, '80s new wave and alternative pop and '90s emo yet managed to come up with something that is fresh and invigorating.

^Prato, Greg. „Flyleaf [CD/DVD] [Bonus Tracks/Ringtone] - Flyleaf | AllMusic”. AllMusic. Accesat în . In the late '90s and early 21st century, there were "nu metal" and "emo," both of which included lots of hardcore-esque screaming combined with the usual metallic elements (heavy guitar riffs, hard-hitting drumming, etc.). While both new genres were the "metal genre of choice" for many an agitated teenager the world over, few of these bands were female-fronted. One of the exceptions are the Belton, Texas quintet, Flyleaf, led by diminutive singer Lacey Mosley.

Part of the seemingly endless barrage of emo bands to hit the scene lately, Florida's Forever Changed released their debut EP for Floodgate Records in 2004...The songs on this album follow the emo formula effortlessly, offering no surprises whatsoever. Everything you'd expect from an emo band is here, from the yearning vocals to the passionate, soaring choruses...Make no mistake, Forever Changed does emo well, but perhaps they stick to the formula a bit too closely for their own good...So what separates Forever Changed from the myriad of emo bands out there? Not much, really. As the similarity in band names suggests, Forever Changed comes across as nothing more than a Further Seems Forever clone in an increasingly crowded Christian emo genre...While nothing on this EP will make the listener throw out the CD in disgust, there may be enough ingredients in this release to suit avid emo fans who prefer no frills and a straightforward approach to their favorite genre.

The dominant sound was the melodic punk of the Promise Ring and Texas Is the Reason, but peers and tourmates like Karate, The Van Pelt, and especially Chicago's Joan of Arc played with elements of post-rock, including odd instrumentation and ample amounts of droning, wordless minor-key dirges. The Shyness clinic adored the Scottish noisemakers Mogwai, and emo mix tapes often included the Ivy League folk of New York city's Ida. At the Boston basement shows it wasn't uncommon to see the fresh-faced boys of Braid sharing the bill with the heavy rawk bombast of the Rye Coalition."

There Came a Lion is truly an emo-rock album, with the usual themes of love and angst...Relatable as emo may be for some, bands like Ivoryline aren't really known for their songwriting as much as their sound and live performance. Ivoryline does it as well as any...Unfortunately, Ivoryline comes across as the latest in a long line of emo sound-alikes.
^ abGreenwald, p. 19. "Sunny Day Real Estate was emo's head and Jawbreaker its busted gut—they two overlapped in the heart, then broke up before they made it big. Each had a lasting impact on the world of independent music. The band shared little else but fans, and yet somehow the combination of the two lays down a fairly effective blueprint for everything that was labeled emo for the next decade."

You can trace elements from many different emo/rock bands, but the best representation of their sound would be a direct mixture of Kids in the Way and Dead Poetic...Grinding guitars and Shelton’s emotional vocals lead the way through twelve tracks that at first listen may seem a bit repetitious, but after a few more spins, most every fan of emo, rock, alternative, and the like will find a new favorite in Letter Kills.

Boasting a sound that straddled the border of alternative rock and emo-pop, Mae (an acronym for Multisensory Aesthetic Experience) was formed in early 2001 by guitarist Matt Beck, drummer Jacob Marshall, bassist Mark Padgett, keyboardist Rob Sweitzer, and vocalist Dave Elkins.
^Greenwald, pp. 40-41. "No band embodied [the mid-1990s emo] aesthetic more than Texas's Mineral, a quartet of deathly serious young men...In many ways, "If I Could" is the ultimate expression of mid-nineties emo. The song's short synopsis—she is beautiful, I am weak, dumb, and shy; I am alone but am surprisingly poetic when left alone—sums up everything that emo's adherents admired and its detractors detested."

Even more obscure than they were groundbreaking, Moss Icon was an early emo band whose music remains chiefly the province of hardcore collectors and underground historians. Whether that music directly influenced or simply presaged modern emo, Moss Icon's shifting dynamics, chiming guitar arpeggios, and screaming, crying vocal climaxes helped set the template for much of the emocore that followed in its wake.

While the tendency to dissolve into the abyss of angtsy emo-pop was still there, there was a darkness lurking in the nooks and crannies between the crackling snare hits and heavy "drop-d" riffing that hinted at a little pre-evolution, a notion that comes to fruition with their sixth studio record and fourth for Solid State (the metal subdivision of Tooth & Nail Records).

Watashi Wa, an alternative pop/emo band on Tooth & Nail, offers one of the best examples that Christian emo can be done - and done well...What distinguishes this album from typical emo fare, however, is the unabashedly optimistic view on love and life that primary singer/songwriter Seth Roberts displays.

All recorded in 1997 and 1998 but released piecemeal on a variety of singles and EPs over the following years, these songs are an early example of the often-misguided mix of hardcore and emo called 'screamo.'
