Rolling Stone makes their picks.

Music bible Rolling Stone has unveiled their list of the 40 greatest emo albums of all time and, we gotta say, we have our problems with it.


Yeah, yeah, we know these things are subjective and meant to start debates but come on - A Fever You Can't Sweat Out at number 39? Are you kidding me? Also is Paramore's Riot really an emo album - isn't it more pop punk? And shouldn't MCR be a bit higher up that list?
