??? is exactly my thoughts. Myspace is not the entire world. I'm sure there are 5 or 6 billion people who haven't joined it yet.  ::)

Emo will never be grunge. "Nerd core"? Please elaborate.

Likely and I'm guessing here that nerd core refers to something like Gym Class Hereos or Fort Minor or other alternative hip-hop groups, sometimes even called "emo rap"!

I was a fan of what I dubbed: Nerd Rock.  Generally, rock void of African-American influence:

Devo
OMD
Blancmange
Eyeless in Gaza
Men Without Hats


Stuff like that.  Varying styles and artistic abilities, but I knew it when I heard it.  It was never meant as a pejorative.  In fact, I loved it because it drove rock/R&B fans crazy.  They hated the stuff!
;D

Oh, the guys had to seem like nerds, like they might have gotten pushed about in school.

Emo is like a whiner, evolved (more like devolved, lol) version of pop/punk that was popular from about 1994 to 2002. You could probably argue bands like Jimmy Eat World are sort of the division for where it started getting more Emo, although they were actually good. The generic stuff from, say 2003 like Fall Out Boy and Good Charlotte are probably where it started completey getting whiny and dropping any remaning alternative or punk influence.

I don't think it's too grungy, except for both being very loosely tied to alternative music like Green Day.

emo is crappy music.  It's like the new goth, and though goth wasn't any better, a few good goth songs slipped through.  With emo, no good songs slip through.  If they do, they head straight for the garbage can :D

Yeah, things are usually popular underground before they hit the mainstream and everyone gets into it. Grunge was like college rock in the '80s before it took off in 1991. Same with new wave before MTV came along. Most popular music actually is "older" than the time it's associated with.

Emo is NOT the new grunge. Grunge was a social movement for an entire generation of people who had real angst and problems to deal with. Emo is a fad and doesn't have a big enough fanbase. Also grunge hasn't been mocked to death either.

They grew up in a time when parenting wasn't important (leaving the kids home alone), divorce rates were up, AIDS came out of nowhere and as they grew older they were stereotyped by older people as apathetic and cynical slackers who joined gangs and smoked crack.

Those are some pretty bad problems IMO.

No, Emo is not the new grunge. Grunge has had an influence(for better or worse depending on who you are) on music for the better part of the last 20 years. Emo will be nothing more than a footnote in music history by 2013 at the very latest.
