its basically described by society as a type of person or is basiclly a insult all together but in real cases its a type of music evolved from punk rock justlikemany other that evolved from punk rock as well. In Standards emo is dead well not nesicarly dead but lets just say is not
so "easy" to find a REAL emo band now a days. If you peopledidnt know before Hawthorne Heights isnt emo and all the other bands out there such as like my chemical romance and what not are also not emo MCR is post punk or pop punk so is HH basically because most/all of there lyrics are sad or deperessing were in real life emo is about the instrumentals yes there a some emo music with no lyrics yes i know its ODD~~~~ the genre of emo orignated in the 1980s time period 1986 is basically the most accurate time period and died out in the early1990s and pop punk is suppose to be there so called "resurrection" the whole clothingthing has nothing to do with emo. Emo was basically all about the music they basically did have a clothing to go with it but it was basic and not focused on the clothing was basically solid pocket tees and no brand clothingwith earth colors black ,white, brown ect.
