Emo genre, does it exist?

Hi guys, i have a doubt, does the emo music genre really exist for you? i've searched about what band are categorized in this genre and all of them sound very different, the only similar things is that they are the most popular rock bands, those who almost sound like pop. So what you think? Does it exist or it's just a stupid label?

Yes, I believe it is still exist. I remember it was became popular during 80's as a hardcore punk music. That sound still around but seldom to play in radio or tv.

I think they're still some bands out there making music with the original emo (emotional hardcore)style/sound but most of the bands/music that's labeled emo is more like angsty alternative rock.

In my opinion, rock is rock, and pop is pop... you can't pu an emo label to something that maybe is somehow between them... its not right.. if people want to have emo music, they have to make something new and different...

i heard it as genre or even a lifestyles from some boys and girls like this but in reality it is difficult to define it precisely!!i think normally it is amix of things and identified a emo...probably it can be compared to dark style of the past...but not really sure!!
