Here's a REAL, NON-STEREOTYPED definition of the word "Emo".

What is emo? Most people view emo as a type of person. Someone who cuts themselves, hates the world, and wears tight clothing. Others view emo as a genre of music including bands such as Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, and Panic! At the Disco. Most people use emo to describe what is really called scene.

What does the word emo mean? Most people believe emo is short for emotional, as in an emotional person or emotional music. Others believe it’s short for emotional hardcore.

Emo cannot mean emotional because then everything would be emo. Everything has emotions- all music, all people. Emo would become an all-encompassing, very vague, word that could be used to describe many things.

The term emo is short for emotive hardcore. It was first used by the members of Rites of Spring in a 1985 interview in Flipside Magazine. Emo is not popular, and there are no mainstream emo bands. You will not hear emo on the radio.

Hopefully this will set everybody straight. **Source!: www.emotivehardcore.com**
