POZ Presents: March Sadness

Posted by - 02:19 PM on 02/27/13
PropertyOfZack launched today a new month-long feature called March Sadness. Check out a blurb about it below and get voting for your favorite sad bands here.
March Sadness consists of a vote-in round (that’s today!) followed by 16-bracket spots broken down into 90’s, Early 2000’s, MId 2000’s, and Modern Day Emo. We are limiting ourselves to 20 bands that will be voted down to 16 by Monday’s Sad 16 launch.

We realize “emo” is both a subjective word and genre, but March Sadness is all about us having fun and interacting as a community. So please click “Read More” below and join us in voting for four out of five of your favorite bands in each emo category through Sunday evening, and the Sad 16 will launch on Monday!

This is maybe my favorite thing of all time on POZ.
General things:
1) We know emo is a subjective term, sorry if you've been upset by it.
2) 5 POZ team members (myself included) ran threw a slew of bands in each "category" and cut them down from there. Big big big bands are missing, we know. But we wanted to limit it to start at Sad 16, so we made cuts where we saw fit.
3) This is rad so vote please.

The mid 2000s is pretty bad. Don't like seeing HRC grouped with those bands.

I like this. I'm sad all the time.

There are quite a few Bands I wouldn't consider close to emo, but that post grunge thread has already had enough genre bullshit for today. I happily voted, hope to see B&C take it.
