Of course, to you, "Share of music" means listening to My Chemical Romance for nine hours a day, but who cares? No one is going to notice the difference once you've started your very own shitty screamo band.
The very first step in forming a well sounding shitty screamo band is finding some fellow music enthusiasts who are willing to spend all day long writing songs and playing on a guitar. This might sound easier than it is, because boy are you an asshole! To overcome this, give your bandmembers something to look forward to, like hot chicks, hot boys, scissors, etc.
In some cases, vibrators also work. Actually, pretty much all cases.
edit The Band Name
A simple formula can be used to create the bands' name: [Possessive Pronoun]+[Adjective]+[Noun] in this same order.
True Examples:? Formula Testing: My Green Door, Your Smoggy Shoe, My Aching Arse.
As demonstrated above any generated name when associated with a band would automatically diagnose that same band as a shitty Screamo band
edit The music
So, now that you've convinced your band has a price to pay for their fame and fortune (namely your bitching for every five seconds), you need to start making some music. First, learn some cords, about three, maybe four. No need for more, because, chords? Like, hello! We're in the 21st century! A real band might also need a consistent drummer, but you're a shitty screamo band, so no need for that. Then the riffs - Steal them. Seriously. I mean, every great artist steal it's shit. It's, like, the shiznitz.
edit The lyrics
Now, to fill up the creative void that your band will always follow, you will need some lyrics.
Make sure your lyrics rhyme. Otherwise you'll look really stupid or really original. Both of them are bad.
Another important thing is to have sufficient knowledge of the English language.
All right, forget that one. Just use the same crap you talk about everyday, but without the "likes" in every sentence. Yeah, I know it's hard, but please, it's very vital to the success of your band. The final important thing about the lyrics is your subject. There are globally two subjects for a shitty screamo band:
- Your gay emotions no one cares about
- And that's about it
edit The Screamo Part
Now, the most important thing to making a shitty Screamo band is the way you sing your songs. To verify this in a closer perspective, you're going to want to fully understand the word "Screamo"
Now, the word "Screamo" can be divided into two parts:
These two words are put together to form the word we are talking about. This is possible because "ea" sounds the same as "e". I know, I know, hard stuff again, but bear with me.
The important thing to know is why these words are put together and for that we are going to look at the words individually:
- Scream: A loud but often a pretty gay way to make a statement. Especially in music
- Emo: A kind of music genre mostly likened by skinny, trendy, gay (or at least closet gay) suburban kids. Involves a lot of stupid emotions no one gives a flying shitfuck about, hence the word "emo"
So it can be said that Screamo is a way to make gay music sound even gayer by screaming it in a very, very gay fashion.
Not like a brave tiger scream, no, more like a scream from a gay cat. The kind of cat who spends 2 hours to look like he just got out of bed.
Now, to simulate this
gayness total fucking awesomeness, you might want to use the power of the mind. Here's a useful tip:
- Prepare to scream (Inhale)
- Think about the last time your sister
took backstole heryour make-up from you
- Scream as loud as you possibly can, from the absolute top of your lungs. With some luck, the people right next to you might just hear something.
Note: If your vocal cords aren't rendered unusable by the time you are 40, you have failed as an emo.
edit The shitty part
This part is absolutely easy, it's just peanuts, just Pea-Nuts.
Just be your gay little emo-self, while playing the guitar/drumming/singing/crying because Sammy O'Donnel stole your boyfriend at YOUR GODDAMN SHOW!!11 Seriously, it's all inside you. Right next to that condom for which you have no explanation whatsoever.
edit The outfits
This is by far the most important part of a shitty screamo band.
Before I'm going to tell you anything about this, take a look at this picture:
This is what a screamo band looks like: full grown men who look gayer than Elton John during a pride parade.
Now, let's look at the true anatomy of this fascinating band:
I have numbered some interesting facts you should always bare in mind. Here they are in a the correct order:
- Number 1: The haircuts of most of the band are completely indentical. To make such a haircut, it's important to:
- have lots of hair gel at your disposal
- make that "Flippy-thing" happen. Like that guy from that band.
- look completely careless as far as styling goes, while maintaining a secret interest of your styling at the same time.
- Number 2: All of the men wear make-up and as we all know, all hard-asses wear make-up. In fact, there is nothing more manly than make-up.
- Number 3: The total and undeniably douchebagness of this group of men: You should never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever forget that once you're in a shitty screamo band, you have to act like you're in one. You must make this clear to everyone, all the time.
If you follow all these steps, it will not be hard to become and stay an original, totally hardcore shitty screamo band. You might want to straighten out the rough edges, but it's always important to remember what you're doing this for:
- To be like, totally awesome
- To like, be an individual
- No, wait, that should be like, chicks, sorry.
Remember: record companies nowadays really don't care what you sing like or what kind of message you want to give to your listening audience. It's all about looking and, because of that, being totally hardcore.
If you play your cards right, wait for the right moment and never give up, all your shitty screamo band dreams will come true.
