By the second time listening to a song, I pretty much have the lyrics memorized.

Screamo is hard to define.

I've met a lot of people who consider death metal a sub genre of screamo (That comment irritates me but I usually don't feel like arguing), but I've also met people who considered 5FDP to be a screamo band.

5fdp!!!!! NO. Screamo is a whole different vibe and type of music. From the metal like 5FDP, they are more traditional.. Screamo bands have emo teens growling and singing o
about cutting them selves.. In my opinion. The bands I like are metal/rock and actually have a more powerful, bad ass vibe. Idk how to explain it, but I hate screamo

To me screamo has nothing to do with cutting yourself. I've always used the term screamo to

Growling is more death metal, there is no room for argument in that genre. I used to listen to 5FDP, Korn, Disturbed among others, then I discovered death metal when I watched Ace Ventura, now I can barely stand most of 5FDP music and don't even consider it metal anymore.

I think it usually takes people about 7 listens to memorize all of a song's lyrics. But, I memorize the lyrics to a ballad or pop song in two or three listens, and 4 times for a rap song. :)

3-4 I have basically everything down, but maybe some misheard words. If I'm actually trying to sing it it would take me 7-10 times to get it perfect
