The latest developments in emo
Jimmy Eat World is probably the biggest band right now that
represents the emo style in 2002. Even though it's a bit more
clean cut than most other emo bands, this band is really
opening up the door for other emo bands to follow. Now that
people have been exposed to the style by seeing the videos on
MTV and hearing the hit songs on the radio, people will want to
see what else is out there. In 1999, The Promise Ring had a
couple videos out as well, but they didn't receive the notoriety
that Jimmy Eat World has. A New Found Glory, a band that sounds a
lot like The Get Up Kids, received the spotlight for a while in
the summer of 2001 with heavy radio play, videos on MTV and
appearances on late night talk shows.
