I'm not sure if you are aware of this, being 17 and only growing up with the term emo, but the style of music is called indie rock.

Definitly one of the best bands I've ever seen.

i saw them twice last summer ... it was probably the greatest thing i have ever seen. it takes them about an hour to set up all of their stuff on stage and the guys in the band are out there helping the whole time. Wayne even came out by the crowd and handed out a ton of glow-sticks to everyone (for use later in their set ... we were to throw them up on stage at the band ....) ... did anyone see that they got nominated for 3 grammys this year i think?
