Morrissey: "The Forefather of Emo"

Buzzetta

WOOOOOOOO!!!!!

For the record everyone I shave my head and that is all she is talking about.

Yes, Smiths once supported Sisters of Mercy, but it's silly and lazy to associate with them goth/Emo.

Morrissey is a big influence on 'emo' (as it is today, I don't mean the original 'emotional hardcore' or whatever).

If you listen to My Chemical Romance's 'Black Parade' album, you will hear a lot of Moz influence on there. Forget about the fashion and the gloomy stereotypes, if you listen to the music with an open mind you'll find a lot that's close to Moz.

EMO today is the offspring of emotional hardcore, theres' still a very direct correlation despite the fact most of the adherents aren't intelligent enough to know this. As for My Chemical Romance being similar to Moz,..surely you have a gas leak or something. My Chemical Romance are reductive, commercialized, intellectually shallow crap, comparing them to Morrissey can only be an insult. Also, I'd say referring to that noise as "music' is a bit of a stretch.

Sisters of Mercy were cool as hell, not whiny little cunts like the Emotards.
Let me come out of the closet and admit that "First and Last and Always" is my favorite album. Right time, right place.

It's amazing to me that The Smiths and The Sisters of Mercy played the same show, and people actually walked away at the end of the evening. I think I would have died, and gone straight to heaven.

Long live Emo. HE's a genius.
