its so funny to me...i allllmost said 18 to catch the oldschool emo stragglers. curses. either way, on average, i was right. i wasn't saying "you kids don't know anything" i was just saying that most people under the age of, okay, 18 wouldn't know who they were...do you guys know Fifteen, Braid, Samiam? its just a matter of when you grew up/who you grew up with. i'm honestly interested in meeting young kids who like emo from when emo was an insult...
i would agree with you. im sure more people have at least heard of braid though esp with bob nanna still being pretty active and them doing that reunion tour.
as for TITR it's sad that more people don't know how amazing this band was. the reunion show was untouchable when it comes to the best show of my life.
i cant really throw stones though, there are a lot of bands that i got into long after the band wagon left the station, but it doesnt mean i cant hold them just as close to my heart - even TITR, hell they broke up in 96/97. most kids on here (especially the younger ones) would probably be lying to say they were HUGE into TITR before they broke up. I got into them through a friend that is 6 or 7 years older than me and I thank him still. hha.
