It’s clear that PropertyOfZack is to blame for the term “Emo Revival” that sprung up in 2013. The bands had nothing to do with it. March Sadness started an undeniable thirst for sadness last year, which is why we’re so happy to make you sad again today with the announcement of March Sadness 2K14: The sadder, weaker, and emoer substitute for NCAA’s March Madness.
March Sadness consists of a vote-in round (that’s today!) followed by 16 bracket spots, broken down into ‘90s Emo, ‘00s Emo, Reunion Emo, and Emo Revival (uh, duh). We are limiting ourselves to 20 bands that will be voted down to 16 by Monday’s Sad 16 launch.
We realize “emo” is both a subjective word and genre, but March Sadness is all about us having fun and interacting as a community. So please head below and join us in voting for four out of five of your favorite bands in each emo category through Sunday evening. The Sad 16 will launch on Monday!
