According to Andy Greenwald, author of Nothing Feels Good: Punk Rock, Teenagers, and Emo, "The origins of the term 'emo' are shrouded in mystery ... If Minor Threat was hardcore, then Rites of Spring, with its altered focus, was emotional hardcore or emocore." Michael Azerrad, author of Our Band Could Be Your Life, also traces the word's origins to the mid-1980s: "The style was soon dubbed 'emo-core,' a term everyone involved bitterly detested, although the term and the approach thrived for at least another fifteen years, spawning countless bands." Mac Kaye traces it to 1985, attributing it to an article in Thrasher magazine referring to Embrace and other Washington, D. bands as "emo-core" (which he called "the stupidest fucking thing I've ever heard in my entire life").
Although many of the bands rejected the term, it stayed.
Emo entered mainstream culture in the early 2000s with the success of Jimmy Eat World and Dashboard Confessional and many artists signed to major record labels.Its quick rise in popularity in the early 2000s inspired a backlash, with bands such as My Chemical Romance and Panic!at the Disco rejecting the emo label because of the social stigma and controversy surrounding it.But there was this weird moment, like when people started calling music 'grunge,' where you were using the term even though you hated it."What had happened in D. in the mid-eighties—the shift from anger to action, from extroverted rage to internal turmoil, from an individualized mass to a mass of individuals—was in many ways a test case for the transformation of the national punk scene over the next two decades.The imagery, the power of the music, the way people responded to it, and the way the bands burned out instead of fading away—all have their origins in those first few performances by Rites of Spring.
In recent years the professional emo scene has exploded with dozens of new girls building strong careers.
