The 00s Emo/Pop Rock Rate | Winner Revealed!

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by fatyoshi, Apr 16, 2020.

  1. I literally had every single one of these songs on a silver iPod. This is the rate my side-fringe and I have been waiting for since 2005.
  2. Good morning little scenesters. (Nevermind that it's almost 2 pm where I live. I'm unwell and just woke up.)

    I'll be trying to get out that tagging spree and if she's feeling Really productive a bonus post.

    Stan The Academy Is... xx

  3. Attention, attention.

    It's time for some mass taggings. This is just a list I compiled of users that I saw posting in threads that have potential interest overlap, ones that have interacted with/expressed interest in the rate previously, and just others that I think might be interested.

    If you're not interested please let me know so I can remove you. I don't want to spam/bombard anyone with notifications.

  12. Not entirely sure if I will do this. The list is a bit too American-heavy for me (as a European) and I know too few songs here. Some more international famed artists are cut (Good Charlotte) and I missed when that happened.

    I am however very intrigued by your artwork and theme and the time investment there so that makes me question to participate. You can keep on tagging me as I might have the time to do some pre-listening and actual scoring.
  13. Ooooh amazing, I'm definitely up for this. At that point in time in my early to mid twenties I had a love/hate relationship with the genre, as it birthed some aaaabsolute bops, but I couldn't help but chuckle at some of the...scene? Visuals?
    Anyway, I therefore know a good deal of the songs on the list, but not everything, so this will be fun.

  14. Also, I'm not gonna lie, I'm a huge AFI fan since before Decemberunderground, so...unless there's a great discovery here, my 11 is set.

  15. I have decided since there is only 40 songs (more rates should do this yeet) I will definitely partake.

  16. First run-through:
    11 - 1
    10 - 1
    9.x - 3
    8.x - 4
    7.x - 15
    6.x - 4
    5.x - 6
    4.x - 1
    3.x - 2
    2.x - 1
    1.x - 1

    I expect the peak around 7 will flatten as I get more acquainted with the songs I didn't know before.
  17. Bonus Post #1: Collaboration and community in the scene.

    Since I haven't had enough of running my mouth in the original posts and I want to have a comprehensive first rate, your host has returned. This will be my first of hopefully a handful (ideally enough to keep the thread somewhat active/interesting but not too much to where I'm being annoying xx) of bonus posts covering a handful of subjects relating to the scene and artists in the rate. So let's just get into it, shall we?

    The emo scene of the 00s was something of a small community. Some artists may have seen greater levels of commercial or critical success than the rest but that didn't stop them from bringing the smaller ones out on tour or stall the general collaboration that was going on. Said collaborations were one of my favorite parts of the scene as I lived it in my teens and I wanted to take this opportunity to highlight some of them.

    This is the Big One™

    2006's cult classic film Snakes on a Plane saw a soundtrack filled with scene goodies. The main takeaway was the absolute bop Bring It (Snakes on a Plane) which had Cobra Starship (Gabe Saporta of Midtown's then new band) and features from Maja Ivarsson (non-rate band The Sounds), Travis McCoy (Gym Class Heroes), and William Beckett (The Academy Is...)

    I'm not a fan of superhero media and as a result don't really get into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the like but this shit was like The Avengers for my 13 year old gay ass. Attending my first Warped Tour in 2008 and seeing this song performed live with 2/3 of the featured artists erased my existence and remains one of my seminal concert going experiences, even today. Sure William doesn't sound very well... Good in the chorus but this bops anyways, next.

    Here we have scene legends The Used and My Chemical Romance serving Fashion, greasy hair, and a misguided cover.

    Not content to be left out of the spotlight, we also have The Cab serving a remix of their track Take My Hand with Cassadee of Hey Monday. Once again with questionable fashion and some choice decisions made in regards to the remix but hey, it's cute.

    Last but not least, I'm going to highlight a music video and not the music in said video. With their single A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More "Touch Me" scene juggernauts Fall Out Boy released this gem of a music video of vampire mayhem featuring members of The Academy Is..., Gym Class Heroes, and Panic! at the Disco. These bands sure knew how to keep the fans well fed.


    I realize this is just barely scratching the surface of the topic and the artists in this rate so I'm gonna take this opportunity to list out the stuff I can think of but didn't mention below. This list is in no way 100% comprehensive but it is an attempt.
