Since it’s the last day of the 12 Days Of 90s Emo, which is probably the 15 Days Of 90s Emo Counting Weekends at this point, and the already loose definition of the genre has been all smooshed and stretched outta shape, I’m not going to argue with any protective fans who want to say Jawbreaker were just a punk band and that Blake Schwarzenbach doesn’t need to be stained with the runny eyeliner of those 21st-century digital mallrats who unknowingly jacked his Gilman Street beats without ever owning a copy of 24-Hour Revenge Therapy. But it’s my rundown and I’ll draw up the lines of demarcation where I feel like. Also I’m totes trying to get out of here to finish this champagne. Where was I? Oh yeah, Jawbreaker. Emo? Maybe. Awesome? Indubitably.
