20 Emo Songs From the 2000s We Still Secretly Listen To
MOTION CITY SOUNDTRACK, “EVERYTHING IS ALRIGHT”
A lot of the most popular emo bands from the 2000’s straddled the line of pop punk, and Motion City Soundtrack is no exception. They played sad music that you could still dance to. That’s basically emo in a nutshell, which would explain why our generation was so drawn to it during puberty. Commit This to Memory was not only the band’s best and most widely well-received album, but also their most emo album, thanks to hits like “Everything Is Alright,” in which frontman Justin Pierre is quite literally asking for someone to tell him that everything is alright.
