Ten Best Screamo Bands From Florida

8. Jiyuna (Fort Myers)
Actually, it does. This West Coast troupe delivered a version of politicized screamo that substituted melodrama for moral urgency. Plus, it took the style's cornball-epic sentimentally provocative instrumentals, and sandblasted them into a driving, ass-kicking form that could be more readily identified as having something to do with hardcore punk rock.

7. Tunes for Bears to Dance To (Miami)
Tunes for Bears to Dance To featured members who would go on to play in Capsule, Shitstorm, Torche, and countless other staples of Florida punk and hardcore. The Miami-based grammar-trashing supergroup boasted two singers and superdynamic songwriting that packed bombastic, chaotically noisy yet highly sentimental metallic-and-melodic opuses packed into three- to four-minute pop-punk-like ditties. It also had a feverish following on the internet.

Its discography consists of a demo released on a handful of home-dubbed cassettes and CD-R's and two highly coveted seven-inches released by Miami 2000s hardcore-and-beyond label Somberlain.
