Emo. Who knows what it really is, like honestly? Some say its a genre of music, "fags" who sing about there failure relationships, and mostly, people who wear tight pants, strum a guitar to a suicidal song and cry all day. But who is to say that any of these definitions are wrong? We all have different opions; and noone can say one's opion is "stronger" than another opion(in this case)fore, I cannot find a legible source and or person who made the word up.

1. Emotional people
2. Bands such as silverstein
3. Outcats of society
4. People who wear certain clothes/and or styles to prove a point to society
5. People who dont take care of them selves, and where rugged clothing
