;Greenwald, 33" Greenwald, p. 33. In 1994, the same year that Jawbreaker's ''24 Hour Revenge Therapy'' and Sunny Day Real Estate's ''Diary'' were released, pop punk acts Green Day and The Offspring had mutiplatinum (Oro album) successes with their respective albums ''Dookie'' and ''Smash (Smash (The Offspring album))''. In the wake of the underground going mainstream, over the next several years emo as a genre retreated, reformed, and morphed into a national subculture, then eventually something more. Drawing inspiration from bands like Jawbreaker, Drive Like Jehu, and Fugazi, the new sound of emo was a mixture of hardcore (hardcore punk)'s passion and indie rock's intelligence, bearing the anthemic power of punk rock and its do-it-yourself (Do it yourself) work ethic but with smoother songs, sloppier melodies, and yearning vocals. Greenwald, pp. 34–35. Many of the new emo bands originated from the Midwestern (Midwestern United States) and Central United States, such as Braid (Braid (band)) from Champaign (Champaign, Illinois)-Urbana, Illinois, Christie Front Drive from Denver, Colorado, Mineral (Mineral (band)) from Austin, Texas, Jimmy Eat World from Mesa, Arizona, The Get Up Kids from Kansas City, Missouri, and The Promise Ring from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Greenwald, p. 34. According to Andy Greenwald, "This was the period when emo earned many, if not all, of the stereotypes that have lasted to this day: boy-driven, glasses-wearing, overly sensitive, overly brainy, chiming-guitar-driven college music."

It is the central city of the Kansas City metropolitan area, a region spanning the Kansas–Missouri border. Founded in the 1830s as a port on the Missouri River and originally called Kansas, this became confusing upon the establishment of Kansas Territory in 1854, creating the name Kansas City to distinguish the two.

It is one of two county seats of Jackson County. The 18th and Vine Neighborhood (18th and Vine-Downtown East, Kansas City) gave birth to the musical styles of Kansas City jazz and Kansas City blues. It is also known for Kansas City-style barbecue. The area is infamous for the Border War that occurred during the American Civil War, including the Battle of Westport and Bleeding Kansas. Large suburbs include Independence (Independence, Missouri) and Lee's Summit (Lee's Summit, Missouri) in Missouri and Overland Park (Overland Park, Kansas), Olathe (Olathe, Kansas) and Kansas City (Kansas City, Kansas) in Kansas.
