For anyone who's ever had an emo phase, or if you're still going through it.

For some people, emo was just a phase they had back in 2005. They might not wear heavy black eyeliner or create a dramatic side fringe with a whole can of hairspray every day anymore. For others, it’s still a way of life. And if you are one of those people, we salute you.

QUIZ: How Emo Are You, Really?

Personally speaking, we might have ditched the eyeliner but we’re still blasting our favourite emo bangers on the daily. So, when Apple Music asked us to create a playlist of our favourite emo songs, how could we resist? We've included all our favourites including Panic! At The Disco, Paramore, Fall Out Boy and AFI and, we won't lie, it's slaps.

The 'My Emo Phase' playlist will be regularly updated all year, so make sure you hit the 'add' button on Apple Music to get the best bops all year long.
