Used to refer to the breed of teen who listened to(and "related to") soft
punk music, dyed their hair black
, made a habit of inflicting pain to themself (such as the sliting of the wrists), wear black stovepipes
that are too small, dress entirly in black
, and act overly
Now its been so overused that anyone who has the slightest fringe, listens
to any type of rock music often, or wears any one piece
clothing is stamped
with title emo.
You don't realy even
need to be over emotional as the name suggests or listen to the music (which in most peoples opinion are the two main emo propeties) anymore to earn the title.
1.) "You're an emo cos if those jeans
were black they'd be emo jeans
2.) Jim: "Have you heard the new blink 182 song?"
Bob: "Omg, i didnt know you turned emo."
3.) "You're such an emo, why did you get a fringe?"
