FWIW -- from Wikipedia -- "Keith Lionel Urban was born in Whangarei, New Zealand,[2] the son of Marienne and Robert "Bob" Urban. From the age of 13 he attended Sir Edmund Hillary College in Otara, South Auckland, New Zealand, by the age of 17 he lived with his parents in Caboolture, Queensland, Australia. " So he is an Australian that was born in New Zealand . . . .

Emo is a type of music? I had no idea.

It is, but it's really a term of convenience rather than a genre of music. Lots of emo bands sound nothing alike, but they have some common elements...superficial lyrics about failed romance, self-indulgence, whiny, nasal vocals, and a tenuous connection to punk rock without any of the elements that actually make punk rock interesting. Jimmy Eat World is emo in the sense that they have all of those elements, but musically, they are miles above any of their "emo" contemporaries...Fall Out Boy, Dashboard Confessional, New Found Glory, and so on.

Don't hipsters also like post-rock?

was thinking the same, indie rock is also heavy stuff like "the kooks", but everything with post at the beginning is so classical hipster was on a post-rock few years ago, everyone was just quiet, staring and whyning, what a mess
