First things first, "emo" is NOT short for emotional... Only the "scenekids" think that.After all, surely all songs ever written intend on having some form of emotion in them? Dashboard confessional is not emo. Emo kids don't all have the regulation, long fringe, black dyed hair. Emo kids are not the scene kids!
True emo kid... was emo before everyone decided it was "cool"
Fake emo kid... Scene!
