I don't understand what's going on in here. I just want to hear American Football songs that I haven't heard before.

nice to see revisionists out in force. bands like christie front drive had their music described as 'twinkly' in the 90s, so what's wrong with referring to american football as such, so long as it's accurate? just because it's now been co-opted as a "genre" (wtf?) does't mean that it's not a legitimate description of a certain type of guitar sound.

however, i would suggest that bands such as mineral / cfd had a twinkly guitar sound, and bands like american football do not.

thus, we are back where we started. what exactly is twinkly about playing noodly, slightly jazz influenced emo? not a lot.
Mineral sounds nothing like Christie Front Drive.

i'm not arguing?



am i? then why is it that it's mostly only my friends that are also in bands that realize how stupid sub-genres are?

Yes.

No one here is arguing on behalf of "twinkle", no one is as invested in the term as you seem to be. Chances are you've given more thought and time to the whole thing than anyone else here. The term is not something definitive and no one is trying to pass it off as that, it's (along with most sub-genres) a simple way of describing a certain sound. At this point using the term emo is too broad, and I sure as hell will not write a detailed description of the sound every time I wanna talk about a band like that. Sub-genres are a quick way of describing a band in hopes that most people will understand what you're talking about without having to get too into detail.

In short the only person giving importance to the term is you, and you're using a dumb and generalizing argument to support yourself.
