Time Off magazine caught up with Dashboard Confessional’s Chris Carrabba who resisted his music being referred to as emo. “I don’t know if it is what we are,” said Carrabba. “It was a really accurate term for a music movement that predated me, just as hardcore predated post-hardcore and as punk predated post-punk. I don’t really care what they call me and it boils down to this: they called Pearl Jam grunge for a long, long time and they don’t anymore – and they don’t even seem to call it grunge when they look back on it.” The article at timeoff.com.au has since been removed.
