Your average listener

Screamo, also known as post-hardcore, is a type of screechy ass music from emo usually played by hipsters, emos, pogo-fags and is basically complete noise that rapes yo ears in front of ya. The music has screechy and annoying ass screaming that jacks off your ears.

How to Make a Screamo Band

  • Find at least one emo kid in the band
  • Get a cracker to scream in the mic like he is getting castrated
  • Guitar lines should ripoff emo bands
  • Make EMOtional lyrics
  • Record music in a cave or in a trash can
  • Wear ear plugs in case the music smacks up your ears
  • Drink MOAR redbull
  • Write about your GF breaking up with you last Thursday
  • Make sure your vocals sound possibly like you're screaming in agony. Your face must reflect that as well. See the links below for some examples.
  • If you're the vocalist and are a cunt/girl then put a chainsaw up your vagina if you have trouble screaming
  • If you also wanna often sing, then just impersonate Gerard Way, Guy Picciotto, Bert McCracken, Craig Mabbitt, etc
  • If you're playing for a skramz band, become a terrorist and record you bombing a city and making people shriek in your music.
  • Be a hipster or a vegan
  • While you make the awful screaming noises in performances, you must put one foot up on an elevated surface with the knee bent at a 90-degree angle. All screamo bands have a Wikipedia article picture where the vocalist does this. Don't know what this pose looks like, go to or or and you will see this fuckingly retarded pose.


The lyrics in screamo usually just talk about how you're the destruction of the relationship with some whore, otherwise write about your EMOtionally retarded feelings, getting drunk and high to ease your pain, ripping off Romeo and Juliet with modern English, and be sure to do whatever the fucking shit any before screamo band does.

Lyric examples

  • GOD DAMMIT!!! AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!! I broke the relationship!
  • EXCUSE ME EVERYONE! I WANT ATTENTION! Alright watch how tough I am! I will blow my brains out! CUZ I CAN HANDLE PAIN!
  • BLOOD IS ON MY STOMACH, YOU KILLED MY LOVE YOU CUNT I WILL TEACH U because I am a teacher at a torture chamber

Typical skramz musicians

Some band who named themselves after a drug named Heroin decided to gather powerviolence and [email protected] gay edge fans to play emo music, so they decided to record in a trash can of cum smeared on the walls, they also became terrorists and decided to bomb cities which is why when you hear their music they sound like they are dying on 9/11. The singer knew how to scream so shrieky because he got castrated as a little one because he was some kike who had some retard try to perform circumcism but ended up castrating him accidentally. Many screamo bands were tagged as skramz by this time by people who wereTOO MUCH OF A FUCKIN RETARD TO SPELL "SCRAMS" RIGHT. Most bands consisted of emos and [email protected] kids who dressed like geeks and hipsters with jeans, sweater vests, t shirts and huge fucking glasses that indiefags wear today. Other nerd bands playing this noise were Orchid, Pg 99, Circle Takes the Square and Neil Perry.

Song Structure of Skramz

  • Soft guitars and quietness
  • Vocals come
  • Guitars distort
  • Drummer is on redbull while his ass gets tickled
  • Song ends, 30-90 seconds of noise


Nowadays emo bands with a screamo sound now dress the today emo image and now sing because they want to sellout and sound MOAR radio-friendly. Bands like Thursday and Funeral for a Friend now make a gayer version of screamo and weren't nerds but just emofags you see today. But then shittier bands come out.

Late 2000s/2010s

Now most bands overuse the BREAKDOWNS CHUGGA CHUGGA which now Asking Alexandria, A Day to Remember, Eyes Set to Kill and other bands do. They have to jack off to men in tight pants, pogo-dance and do shrieky screams, growls from their dog getting its anus prepared, and singing like a boy band. After these bands came, now there are a bunch of poseur bands out there and now the music is confused with heavy metal. Worse yet, an entire worldwide festival known as Warped Tour has come to power and succeeded in flooding entire amphitheatres and stadiums with jizz from obese fangirls and faggot emo boys.

How to Sound Like Newer Screamo
  • Riff
  • Friendly singing like One Erection
  • Singing that sounds extremely feminine
  • GROWL OH! BREAKDOWN 000000000000

POP IS GAY AND IS SO EASY. Our screamo tab we made:00000000000000000000000000

Bands Tagged as Screamo

  • Dance Gavin Dance - who references female serial killers and shitty NES movie adaptations in their songs?

  • Fugazi - nothing to see here
  • Rites of Spring - you know what's a rite of passage? Destroying a screamo CD!

  • Escape the Fate - they ripped off the Hot for Teacher music video! Bonus points: one of their members is a Mudslime.
  • Every Time I Die - the vocalist Keith Buckley died of AIDS. One would think he got HIV by fucking too many groupies, but we personally think he was a faggot.
  • Scary Kids Scaring Kids - they broke up! Haha!
  • Snapcase - Wikipedia doesn't know whether to classify them as punk or post-hardcore (screamo), but they perform at the dreaded Warped Tour, which makes them fit in this article.

  • Area 11 - you idiots, you are not Japanese!
  • The Used - this is probably the only screamo band that has songs that get played at high school dances.

  • Devil Wears Prada - they like to trick death metal bands into opening for them.
