Top Definition
1. An oxymoron due to the fact that emo is a false genre compiled from bits of other underground music scenes into a uniquely bland fashion (non)statement. Its fashionably depressed adherents pride themselves on contrived negative emotion, looking like each other, and an ironic sense of self esteem that comes from self-loathing.

2. Emo culture is the yogurt-like substance created by the bacteria that grows in the dark, hair dye goop of emo clones.
1. Emo culture taught me to be proud of my insecurities and now I am an individual that looks like all my other crybaby friends.

2. That is not pus, it is emo culture oozing from sissy-boy's noggin.
