what up? i just now joined this community in an effort to learn about more hardcore/emo/screamo bands. i just recently got into the likes of circle takes the square, hot cross, swing kids, moss icon, indian summer, pg. 99, portraits of past, rites of spring, embrace (dc), and envy. i wanted to find out about more bands similar to these.

any suggestions? (band - album)

We need help

We are creating the Scene Wars points value system, and need your help. I'm going to list all of the things that could possibly give someone scene points just from a picture, you tell me how many points each is worth (1-5). Also, list any I did not, and add the point value.

Daphne Loves Derby

Hey there! We here at Racket Magazine are doing an interview with Daphne Loves Derby tonight at the El Rey Theatre tonight in Los Angeles, but we're coming up short on questions. We could always ask the same old boring questions like "how's tour?" or "what was recording like?", but to be honest, we hate those questions. We hate asking them, bands have already answered them 8 million times, and you are tired of reading them. Now's your chance to find out what you want to know! Leave us comments with the questions you are dying to know the answers to! We are looking for questions that bands have probably never been asked like, "Have you ever tried a Milkbone?" or "Do you hate tomatos as much as I do?" Also, feel free to Add our MySpace page!

OK, kids, let 'em rip! And don't forget, we still have plenty more interviews coming up! Marathon, The Gym Class Heroes, Thrice, Fall Out Boy, and tons tons more! Plus, we already have some on our site! Check it out!

"I never understood MySpace, from what I understand, it's like baseball cards, but you collect friends instead."
