Let’s Talk: The Integration & Overlap In Soundcloud and Various Rock Subgenres

In the past few weeks, popular Soundcloud artist and songwriter Lil Aaron has released 3 new songs, each opening with samples from classic emo/pop punk hits. It started with the track Warped Tour, featuring Paramore’s Misery Business. Then, a week later he released Hot Topic, which begins with Panic At The Disco’s iconic I Write Sins Not Tragedies intro.

The music choice and environment was incredible. The Social staff was very kind as well. Overall, it was a complete success, and full of energy at that. Emo Nite isn’t a band. It’s an experience that makes you want to relive the glory days, when Myspace was around, and your favorite bands were still on Drive-Thru Records.
