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.
