Firstly, this is in the wrong section.

And secondly, I haven't heard much by them but don't mind them.

I'm not a big fan of screamo. They're alright, I saw them at Taste Of Chaos and to be honest, all of the bands sounded the same.

Screamcore/Emo. It'a a genre.

I know what screamo is, but Rise Against isn't screamo. Except for some parts of their last album.

Interesting. Perhaps they played those particular songs at TOC because TOC was all screamo.

They scream a lot, but the lyrics aren't emoish for the most part.

I like the song Paper Wings. That's the only song I know by them.

The song "Give It All" is alright. Don't mind it that much. That's the only song I really know though.

Taste of Chaos wasn't all screamo. The used aren't screamo. Rise Against aren't screamo. Killswitch aren't screamo.

The used are mainstream pop rock.
Rise Against are melodic punk
Killswitch are melodic thrash

Rise Against aren't emo at all, unless you are under the impression that bands like Funeral For a Friend and Bullet For My Valentine are emo bands, which you'd think Rise Against are since in a lot of their songs, they sing about negative, bad things. Musically, they have been classed as new punk.

I no longer like them and I always found the album Siren Song of the Counter Culture a bit lame. Revolutions Per Minute is better.

I generally cant apreciate any band with screaming to the extent of these new wave "shit" bands as I like to call them, to avoid genre confusion anyway.

All of the bands that played that night were playing the same style of music. Perhaps they all played screamo songs on the night because that was the theme of the tour, but every band sounded the same for at least that one night, whatever genre that may have been.

Well, i know Rise Against can sound screamo, but the difference is in the lyrics. There aren't many traces of emo, which means that they're just a punk band that screams a lot. Kind of like Strike Anywhere.

But obviously on the night, what with all the screaming she couldnt hear the lyrics, you gotta understand where shes coming from.
