In addition to the constant output of new, acclaimed music from {{AFI}}, TheUsed and TakingBackSunday, and the recent resurgence of {{Thrice}}, AtTheDriveIn and {{Glassjaw}}, there's been a recent influx of Indie Emo bands reinvigorating the Classic Emo and Post-Hardcore sound, many notably on the ''Count Your Lucky Stars'' label. Empire! Empire! I Was a Lonely Estate, [[OverlyLongName The World is a Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid to Die]] and Snowing are just a few of them. These particular bands also seem to be mixing in elements of PostRock, NoiseRock and Shoegazing music to great acclaim from fans of indie rock. There's also the ''{{Defend Pop Punk}}'' scene, which has revived elements of Emo with PopPunk and Melodic Hardcore. Big names include Transit (also part of the above Indie Emo revivalists with their recent American Football-influenced output), Man Overboard, The Wonder Years, most of ''Rise Records''' roster, etc. Bands from ''The Wave'' (Music/LaDispute, Pianos Become the Teeth) have also taken cues from this particular genre.

Of the emotive hardcore bands only Weezer, The Get Up Kids, and Jimmy Eat World had real commercial success due to their greater reliance on conventional pop song structure.

Emo-Pop was born in the mid-2000's and combines elements of pop rock, classic emo introspection, and punk rock. The first and most well known of these is Music/FallOutBoy. Although many earlier emo bands had a poppy sound (i.e. Music/JimmyEatWorld, for instance) and Fall Out Boy was the first to take emo into an overtly pop direction. Now that's not necessarily a bad thing, since Fall Out Boy is generally treated more favorably by the critical spectrum by often going against the stock formula used by their emo-pop followers: adding elements of {{Soul}}, R&B, orchestral flourishes, and even Hardcore Punk. This is much less common among their emo-pop contemporaries, who often are more than a bit formulaic, and lacks the emotion, depth and sensitivity of the previous emo scenes. Along with {{Metalcore}} and post-grunge, emo-pop is a LoveItOrHateIt genre -- it is insanely popular with some groups, while the rest... well, you know.
