Top 100 Emo Songs of All Time
4. Dashboard Confessional | "Screaming Infidelities"
"Screaming Infidelities" by Dashboard Confessional from the album The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most (2000)
When this record was released in 2000, it was emo’s Dylan-goes-electric moment in reverse. Chris Carrabba had abruptly departed the seminal post-hardcore outfit Further Seems Forever and set off alone into the moody Florida sunset with only his acoustic, a powerfully — and often painfully emotive — warble, and a broken heart. Both maligned by haters and melodramatically beloved by diehards as the most quintessentially “emo” emo track ever, it’s a cuckold’s anthem for anyone who’s ever sat home alone obsessing over what it is she’s up to tonight.
