Stay Posi, Emo Kid - Most Formative Emo Band

Melissa Brinks published on

While we're off on vacation, we thought we'd leave you with a little idea we've been kicking around—a positive debate podcast about emo. When we say emo, we mean inclusively; pop punk, old-school emo, midwest emo, and so on are all fair game.

In this first episode, we're talking about the emo bands that had the biggest impact on us as teenagers. We each nominated three bands and picked one for each of us, plus one ruling champion—the band most emblematic of the mid-2000s, when we were teenagers.

We hope you enjoy this while we're frolicking through Disneyland. If you do, let us know—we'd love to make it a (semi-) regular thing, because once you start one podcast you just can't stop.
