Post-hardcore band Rites of Spring was formed in 1983 in Washington, D.C.. The band increased the frenetic violence and visceral passion of hardcore punk while simultaneously experimenting with its compositional rules. Lyrically, they also shifted hardcore into intensely personal realms and, in doing so, are often considered the first emo band.
