Emo is really a continuation of some of the stuff going in in the 80's. Sunny Day Real Estate made the genre unique and popular in the underground scene while Nirvana was performing Nevermind. Nirvana really reached its height of influence after Cobain committed suicide in the mid-to-late 90's.
Emo really doesnt have much of a connection to Nirvana outside of the garage band movement that tied them together along with acts like Pearl Jam, Afghan Whigs, Dig, etc.
