Original Emo (Emotional hardcore) bands like Fugazi were 1. Born from Punk and 2. Actually respectable musicians. Bear in mind, original emo bands like Fugazi came almost strictly from punk, so there's no Metal association.

Since my knowledge of music is primarily limited to Metal I can't tell you how the style went from decent music about political issues (Again, Fugazi kicks ass) to shitty hipsteresque hairstyles and skinny jeans singing about trivial melancholic shite like My Chemical Hoe-mance. But something happened in the late 90s/early 2000s and it all shifted.

Then another generation of musicians who were inspired by Old school Heavy Metal, Screamo and 2nd-gen emofaggotry birthed the bastard child that is Metalcore...Now you have bands like Bullet for my Faggotry and As I Lay Crying out there, being newfags, pissing off the purists and myself...

tl;dr. The answer is NO. And we barely tolerate -corefags
