What about Black Sails in the Sunset/The Art of Drowning-era AFI? Anyone?

Throwing my support behind Burt and Trag's post-rock suggestion for some time in the future.

Like nu metal, I knew a lot of people who were into that stuff, but I never identified with any of it. The closest I got was Death Cab.

I never got into Death Cab, which is strange in hindsight.

I still listen to emo a lot.

JEW, Pedro the Lion, The Get Up Kids, Sunny Day and Rites of Spring are all regulars for me.

I think the genre was really bastardized by the likes of Thursday, Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance, all of who are fucking terrible.

I never really considered Death Cab emo, although Something About Airplanes and We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes are both fab.

I was really into the first two Thursday albums in high school, but by the time Jet Black New Year was released I was out of it.

there should at least be an annual addition of 1 RMer to pollstering ability

Death Cab's first few albums are just wimpy indie rock with pronounced emo undercurrents, tales of fly-on-the-wall post-grad suburban boredom, but in my opinion they got really emo around the time of "Transatlanticism," "Plans," etc. My last few trawls through their catalog, I found myself wincing through a lot of songs I used to really like. But there's a lot that's still great -- "We Have the Facts" and "The Photo Album" are two of my favorite albums from that era (I never really cared for "Something About Airplanes"), and Gibbard at his best was an exceptional lyricist.

I'm pretty unapologetic about my love of Pedro's Control, JEW's Clarity and their EP Stay on My Side Tonight and Four Minute Mile by The Get Up Kids . Those are great, GREAT albums.

I think Dave Bazan is the most underrated songwriter of the last 15 years.
