The Past, Present, and Future of EMO (with Allegra Frank)
Nate doesn’t know much about the musical style known as emo. Sadly, he was too busy nerding out on jazz during his youthful years to catch the moment. That’s a shame, because emo is experiencing a revival right now - most surprisingly within the world of hip hop. All of which leaves Nate in the awkward position of not really having any idea what’s going on, so thank goodness for some schooling by Vox culture reporter Allegra Frank, who spent her teenage years the right way: getting emotional to the soundtrack of emo. Her first lesson about this endlessly fascinating subculture? It’s way more than just a sound. Songs discussed:Sunny Day Real Estate - SevenJawbreaker - Do You Still Hate Me?!My Chemical Romance - I’m Not Okay (I Promise)Fall Out Boy - Sugar, We’re Goin DownPanic! At the Disco - I Write Sins not TragediesJimmy Eat World - Lucky Denver MintJimmy Eat World - A Praise ChorusJimmy Eat World - The MiddleAmerican Football - Never MeantFoxing - Lich My Prince The World is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die - Heartbeat in the BrainCheck out more of Allegra’s work here: learn more about Tom Mullen and Washed Out Emo here: Learn more about your ad choices.
