!! Tropes Common to Screamo Bands include:
*{{Grindcore}}: Has a close association with this genre and its less metallic sibling genre powerviolence, with some groups such as Orchid, Pg. 99 and especially Swarrrm demonstrating influences from the style.
*MetalScream: The genre is built upon entirely upon the use of type 3 "screech" vocals.
*MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Generally around a 9, sometimes going down to an 8 with the more melodic groups. Some of the more powerviolence and grindcore associated bands go up to a 10, or in very rare cases an 11.
*SensoryAbuse: Bands such as Orchid and Jerome's dream aim for a chaotic and noisy sound with extremely dissonant chords, pounding drums, throat-shredding screams and extremely treble-heavy and raw production.
*TrueArtIsAngsty: The building block of several groups.

'''Screamo''' is a HardcorePunk-influenced offshoot of EmoMusic which originated in the early-1990s San Diego hardcore scene with bands such as Heroin and Antioch Arrow, who took emo and incorporated [[DarkerAndEdgier far more aggressive and chaotic performances]] and HarshVocals. In the following years, bands like Saetia and pg.99 expanded the sound, while other groups such as Orchid and Jeromes Dream mixed it with {{Grindcore}} and powerviolence to create an even more extreme variant known as "emoviolence". The genre continued to thrive and develop in underground punk scenes around the world from that point onward, while never even coming close to the mainstream.

'''Screamo''' is often mistaken as Metalcore and Post-Hardcore (Although it is a more extreme subgenre of the latter.), but actually has very little to do with it. Be warned, though: this label is ''very'' controversial, with many bands now rejecting it, or referring to it as "skramz". Remember, just because a band screams in some of their songs, it does not automatically make them a screamo band-- the term is often, inaccurately, used to describe [[EmoMusic emotive hardcore]] bands that sometimes [[MetalScream scream]] for emphasis. It is also used inaccurately to describe post-hardcore and metalcore bands that incorporate screaming vocals. Screamo as it's now used describes a different variety of music. But while many post-hardcore bands like Music/TheUsed, Music/{{AFI}}, Music/{{Glassjaw}} and the Music/{{Chiodos}} may occasionally scream to make a point, Screamo bands rarely, if ever, use clean vocals for significant parts of their songs, and if they do, it's usually for more subdued passages and ''maybe'' one or two softer, more mellow songs. Common components of screamo include distorted guitars, chaotic sounds, large amounts of dynamic contrast, lofi/DIY production, higher pitched screaming than other genres, odd time signatures, and non-traditional song structures (often omitting choruses altogether, having long instrumental sections, and very short or very long songs). Screamo originated in the 1991 San Diego hardcore scene with bands such as Heroin and Antioch Arrow, and spread in the following years, with bands like Saetia, pg.99, and Hot Cross, while the Western Massachusetts-based Orchid mixed it with grindcore and powerviolence to create a variant known as "emoviolence". Although contemporary screamo bands(2000-2010's) are less common, examples include Pianos Become the Teeth, The Saddest Landscape, Old Gray, Portrayal of Guilt, and William Bonney. The genre itself has never even been close to mainstream and has usually occupied the DIY portion of the touring circuit, where basements, punk houses, student unions and college dorm common areas, and rehearsal and art spaces will make up most, if not all of the venues on a tour, and even the bigger acts will usually find themselves playing a lot of function halls and very small bars and clubs.

The genre has become a FandomEnragingMisconception for fans of screamo, post-hardcore, and emo music, especially when people lump the genres together, brand emo music as "screamo" or confuse emo bands for being screamo bands. Other common victims of the "screamo" mislabeling are metalcore and PostHardcore bands. Even Pandora's screamo station is instead of full of Metalcore and Post-Hardcore Punk Because of this, the ACTUAL screamo bands are less popular than they normally would be.
