The 20 Best Emo Songs of All-Time

JImmy Eat World Jim Adkins best emo songs of all-timeWe’ve all either liked a girl/boy that didn’t like us back or were dumped in a brutal fashion. Emo music is needed during those times. Our grandparents had sad Elvis songs, our parents had The Cure and we had our generation of sappy songs, emo.

I could have easily added bands like The Smiths, The Cure and Joy Division to this list, but I tried to put the focus narrowly to the mid-90’s to mid-00’s range. I feel like that is the time frame in which true nationwide emo music originated and sort of died.

Emo music came into form when the second-wave of punk hit America. It kind of started about the same time. Emo hit the D.C. area in the mid-80’s, but didn’t hit everywhere until Sunny Day Real Estate and Jawbreaker became popular with college kids.

Go Radio covers Adele’s "Rolling In The Deep"

If you search ‘Rolling In The Deep cover’ on YouTube you get 34,300 results. Go Radio’s cover of the Adele song was one of the most original results. I really enjoyed John Legend’s rendition, probably one of the best, but it was a bit mellow.

Go Radio is fronted by Mayday Parade‘s former vocalist Jason Lancaster. His voice is unique and reminds of Alkaline Trio‘s Dan Andriano. This track was on ‘Punk Goes Pop Vol. 4’, a series that has punk bands cover everything from 80’s music to the latest pop tracks.

Cover Song Month‘ is turning into one of my favorite ideas. Watch the video after the jump…

Song Of The Day – All Time Low (Weightless)

I know what you’re thinking, why I have shirtless boys on my blog? I wouldn’t normally do this, but I probably have a few lady readers out there and they need some eye candy too. Here at “America’s White Boy,” we obide to Title IX and maybe I should make Thursdays Ladies’ Night here. I would need to get a velvet rope, do you think they have them at IKEA?

I’m a big fan of All Time Low, they had an acoustic track on “Punk Goes Acoustic Vol.2, I think it was called “Jasey Rae,” great tune. Anyways, my friend actually has a lyric by All Time Low tattooed on herself, she is a huge fan of music and has other band tattoos. It takes a huge dedication to do that and I think it’s cool, even if it was a band that I didn’t care for, it’s still cool.

“Weightless” is a up-tempo pop-punk track off the album “Nothing Personal.” They have released a few other albums and they have all been good, a rarity for the genre. Usually pop-punk bands have one good album and then the rest are cookie-cutter attempts are re-creating magic. If you are looking for bands that have a similar sound, I would say that Cartel and The Audition are two bands that I would recommend.

Here is the video for “Weightless”

Song Of The Day – Relient K (Must Have Don Something Right)

Relient K has been around for awhile, very long in terms of their genre. Most pop-punk acts spark and fade rather quickly. Relient K built a strong fanbase before going mainstream with their music. They started out on some smaller Christian labels and started seeing their fanbase grow to a point where they were getting the attention of major labels. “Be My Escape” was their first mainstream hit and then last year they released the album “Five Score and Seven Years Ago” with much success.

The video for “Must Have Done Something Right” is a pretty awesome concept. It follows a traveling soccer ball around. Relient K has always had a sense of humor in their song-writing, so it was just the next logical step to use some of their creativity in their videos.

Relient K will be around a long time, they don’t seem to be slowing down. Here is the video for “Must Have Done Something Right.”
