Swemos, Taylor Swift-loving emos, are a force to be reckoned with. Here’s how Swift and emo music are more alike than you think.
Taylor Swift’s affinity for emo music and culture is beyond any doubt. In preparation for her new album Midnights, here are her most emo songs of all time.
To properly dissect the best emo albums from 2011, one must not be afraid to use the term “emo” broadly, as this style of music can take shape across multiple genres. In 2011, emo was arguably at its lowest point commercially, as the mid-to-late 2000s boom had slowly faded away at the turn of the […]
The fact that 2000 is more than two decades away is enough to send most millennials into a cold sweat. It wasn’t all good, but the middle school days were enough to get you ready for the world. Once the new millennium opened up, it felt like anything was possible, and there was a kickass […]
You could argue that blink-182 are one of the major reasons why pop punk exploded into the mainstream in the 2000s.

We’ve already established that there are some surprises that come with RIAA certifications. That said, there’s nothing more troubling than realizing that some of the most iconic alternative albums have never been certified gold. It’s not particularly surprising that there are some discrepancies between an album’s generalized reception and its certification standing. After all, the criteria […]
Is there anything more exciting than a good song collaboration? Given all the hype generated by guest appearances such as Travis Barker and phem on Tyler Posey‘s debut solo single, we can’t imagine so. While 2020 was undoubtedly a year for collaborations, that’s not to say such joint efforts went unappreciated in the past. In fact, […]
Branding is one hell of an important factor to achieving success and maintaining a fanbase in music. So, it’s no surprise that many musicians use their solo projects as an avenue for genre experimentation. We’ve seen it countless times to varying extents.
