The 20 Best Pre-’00s Emo Albums

Have a scroll through...

Before the hair flicks and mic swings that would go on to popularise the term in the mid-00s, emo existed as something different entirely. That ‘something’, as it happens, was fucking great. From its true inception in the mid-80s, right up until the turn of the millennium, emo existed more as an ideology than a sound or a fashion statement.

As Ryan De Freitas takes you through twenty of the best albums from that period in the gallery above, you’ll find strands of hardcore, indie-rock, pop punk and more, showcasing both a changing landscape and more than a few hints of what was to come.

Oh, and below is a handy playlist to accompany the whole thing. You’re welcome!
