Nomination guidelines...


There are no real rules for nominations, just try to keep them reasonably within the emo genre. I'd suggest nominating about 10 songs each, but again that's not a strict rule... if you want to nominate more or less, that's fine. Also, if you've already posted your list and you see a song someone else nominated that you really like, you can second it without having to remove anything from your own list. The goal is to get 32 songs with at least 2 people nominating each of them.

Figured I'd give a head start with some of the obvious emo-scene stuff that comes to mind that I actually like which I imagine some people would put forward. I am 100% missing a lot especially some of the earlier emo movement but it's a start. 


Hawthorne Heights - Ohio Is For Lovers

Brand New - Sic Transit Gloria...Glory Fades

My Chem - Helena

Straylight Run - Existentialism On Prom Night

The Used - Taste Of Ink

Finch - Letters To You

30 Seconds To Mars - The Kill

Jimmy Eat World - Sweetness (let's be fair they really shouldn't have been in the pop punk bracket at all) 

Death Cab For Cutie - I Will Follow You Into The Dark

Funeral For A Friend - History

I feel like MCS doesn't really fit in with 'emo' but if they did Everything Is Alright certainly doesn't.

Hold Me Down, sure but Everything Is Alright?!

If people are nominating iffy entries fuck it - 

Kevin Devine - Cotton Crush

Part of the fun of these competitions is arguing about whether something is really part of a particular genre. Once we get to the voting stages, the songs that don't really fit well tend to go pretty quickly.
