The emo music genre has its roots in the ’80s, but it wasn’t until the 2000s that emo broke into mainstream culture. Numerous emo bands, who brought us their own brand of brooding, confessional music, were signed to major record labels. They not only promoted the music but they also embodied emo fashion and lifestyle.
Unfortunately, the hype didn’t last very long. Soon enough, well-loved emo bands either broke up or changed direction. The emo dudes below ditched the eyeliner for a different look. What do you think? Yay or nay?
1. Davey Havok from AFI
We’re loving the current hair.
2. Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy
Those highlights weren’t very flattering anyway.
3. Brendon Urie from Panic! At The Disco
Who else is digging his dapper style?
4. Chris Carrabba from Dashboard Confessional
Aw, we miss those long sideburns!
5. William Beckett from The Academy Is
The dude still loves scarves.
6. Andrew McMahon from Jack’s Mannequin and Something Corporate
The preppy look suits him.
7. Patrick Stump from Fall Out Boy
The fedora hat works better, don’t you think?
8. Ryan Cabrera
Yep, that porcupine hair had to go.
9. Tyson Ritter from All American Rejects
He still looks hot AF.
10. Bert McCracken from The Used
We’re not so sure about the yellow nail polish.
11. Claudio Sanchez from Coheed and Cambria
Big hair then. Bigger hair now.
12. Forrest Kline from Hellogoodbye
The facial hair is a nice touch.
13. Ben Gibbard from Death Cab For Cutie
Why, hello there, Current Ben!
14. Sonny Moore (AKA Skrillex) from From First To Last
Yeah, the side part is better.
15. Pierre Bouvier from Simple Plan
Are we seeing a Mark Wahlberg lookalike?
16. Benji And Joel Madden from Good Charlotte
Loved them then. Love them now.
17. Quinn Allman from The Used
Where did the long locks go?
18. Kenny Vasoli from The Starting Line
His more defined curls deserve a thumbs up.
19. Adam Lazzara from Taking Back Sunday
We can barely recognize him now!
20. Jordan Pundik from New Found Glory
We wonder what happened to the ear piercing.
21. Gerard Way from My Chemical Romance
So glad he’s looking healthier these days.
