The Get Up Kids have told the Guardian that they apologize for inventing emo.
“If this is the world we helped create,” guitarist James Suptic said, after looking into the crowd at a reunion gig, “then I apologise.”
Oh its ok guys. Emo isn’t all bad! There are some good things…
“There should be a How to Be a Pop-Punk Kid Starter Kit with bands like the Get Up Kids, so kids would know whose shoulders bands like us are standing on,” Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz told Alternative Press in 2005. “Fall Out Boy would not be a band if it were not for the Get Up Kids.“
Never mind. I hate you.
