Yago: Once and for all, what's with the emo thing? Why does everybody tag you guys as an emo band ...
Wilson: I don't know, man. You tell me. I thought Fugazi was emo.
Bell: Well, first there was Grover. And he had a sidekick, and then all of a sudden this emo character has his own movie.
Wilson: I don't know how we got tied into it, but, man. I haven't seen any checks.
Bell: I haven't heard any of those bands.
Yago: Would you consider yourself emo?
Welsh: I thought those were just rock bands.
Bell: I think we're more Elmo.
Welsh: Elmo? Elmo rock. I think we're just a rock band.
Yago: What would you say is different about touring this time?
Bell: I say we're all different. We listen to each other more. And the band's just a stronger rock and roll band, man.
Wilson: I agree with that.
Cuomo: I don't remember what it was like. I think I drank too much before. It's all just a blur.
Bell: [We're] all straight-edge now.
Wilson: Yeah, we're not emo. We're straight-edge.
state: straight-edge elmo rock!
