"I can't avoid her, she's in the air"

I usually stay far away from anything labeled emo. I hate the whiny voices of the singers and ultra-cleverness (which is usually just stupid) of the long-winded song titles (I'm looking at you, Fall Out Boy). This aversion to emo is what has kept me on the fence with Panic! At The Disco. On one hand, I appreciate how they bring synths and theatricality to rock, but on the other hand they are still just too emo for me. Luckily, I found Hellogoodbye, who's blending of dance and emo elements is much more believable. They produce genuine feel-good music which, while still being clever, focuses on melody and variety. And... the singer's voice is not whiny!
