13 essential thursday songs

When I was in my 20s all of the kids were listening to emo and I could never understand why. Then the double kick drum preceded the scream-along-able choruses as I found my fist in the air and my lungs in 5th gear. Something called “screamo” happened and bands like Thursday were to blame.

When straight forward punkrock won’t cut it and metal just isn’t your thing, then screaming emo seemed to find a way to guide the path of the emerging millennial underclass.

Pick up that microphone and dry off all the sweat and tears because this is about to get intense.

Here are mandatory songs from one of the pioneers in a music movement that happened faster than the daylight within a hibernal solstice.
