Rejected from society, the young emo kid struggles to find himself by means of going home every night and write depressing poems while he listen to bands like secondhand serenade and taking back sunday and making love to his razorblade and fawning over a girl he will never get due to his outcast status.

Not exactly an attitude or style, just a way to describe a person who listenes to the sub genre of punk. Usually an emo kid is bound into the music of Power Violence, Thrash, Hardcore, Pop Punk, Grind Core, Crust, and of course, Emo.

They like bands such as In/Humanity, Hour of The star, Shotmaker, Cap'n Jazz, Weep, etc.

Besides spending alot of time on Collective Zine, Underground Obituaries or Cross My Heart With A Knofe ,they spend their time at DIY shows.

These types of people are fairly uncommon in the world these days and most come from foreign countries since America has been infested with a horde of people who do not know the definition of emo or what emo was about. They often feel very passionate about the mockery of the term by either kids who say they are 'emo' when in fact they are not, or when people make fun of 'emo' by showing a male in heavy Eye Liner and tight jeans.

Trying to regain Emotional Hardcore's punk and DIY roots are most likely impossible, due to the refusal of one to accept the true definition from a true emo kid.

The fact this term is still being misinterpreted shows a big amount of ignorance when it comes to musical genres or music as a whole.

So douchebag-ish metal heads, fake punk kids, or internet nerds, take your Slayer and your fucking conformist media shit mettallica and shove it up your ass.
Emo kids dig DIY shows and are real punks.

Okay, lets get things straight here. Emo kids are actually sometimes the coolist people around. Okay, okay. Just because I said you'd be "cool" dont brand yourself emo cus thats just stupid...
Emo kids are usually picked on, or mocked. In fact, kids who get mocked for being emo may not even be emo. Prime example, at school i have two freinds. They spend there lunchtimes singing to Panic! and MCR (badly i must say, but they are entertaining) due to this, our table at school has been branded the "emo table" oooookay. Theres no logic in that! I mean, we all like listening to rock music (thus that may be why we have our brand -emo table) but whatever!

Noooow. If you wanna find a TRUE emo kid, lets look for the common signs, no? (boys)
. Usually long hair that covers an eye. Sometimes also be spiked at the top. Usually dyed black, or can be brown. (Emo boy hair is hawt <3)
. Black eyeliner. Yep, emo boys wear eyeliner XD
. Heavy rimmed glasses, usually black. Classed as "nerd glasses
. Tight t shirts that may have a symbolic meaning. Also they usually wear a black hooded jumper with a band logo on the back
. A messenger bag with pin badges of bands up the strap
. Maybe skinny jeans designed for woman...
. Ever converse all star or vans
. Wrist bands

-Clothing is about the same for emo girls.

Right, and btw all emo kids DONT cut themselves! JEEEZ
Aw look at the emo kid. He has cute hair ^^

a kid who listens to really good music wears wat ever he or she feels like is very intune with their emotions likes to write poetry. emo kids can be drugies or straight edge
people only talk trash about emo becauz either they dont fully undersand the genre or they see stupid ppl saying there emo cauz its a fad. emo kids do not always cry and arent all ways deppresed and do not cut them selfs 24/7.im and emo kid my self and i live a pritty nomal life the only reason im differant is becauz i dont like popularity im intune with my emotions and im artistic(though so are most ppl so that one doesnt count). i listen to underground and mainstream music as long as its good music. i listen to many forms of rock including emo, hardcore,punk,and metal. although some emo kids may be prity well off that doesnt mean they dont have feelings. u dont have to be poor and have abusive parents to be depressed i hope this has taught all u loosers out there that emo is not just a stupid fad run by preps.
an emo kid may have tight or normal pants or jeans,a tight shirt converse and a messanger bag or not w/e

a typical result of overwhelming teenage angst, built up anger towards "the man", or some type of abuse. Emo kids can be classified by a random grouping of hairs (usually black or bleached blonde) over one eye, lots of random chains on their clothes, and very tight jeans. They usually cut themselves and look depressed, but don't feel bad, they're really just angry and bi-curious.
Tom- "Look at the emo kid over there in the corner!"
Robby- "Yeah he's such a douche bag!"
Tom- "No kidding! I bet he's bi-curious!"

Contrary to all the other definitions here, they ALL listen to emo music (hawthorne heights n shit), all put on emo clothes (their little sister's jeans type, u know), they dont look for other ppl's sympathy because they 'think' they're too cool to, they all have the same hair style (florence henderson hair, but covering half face), and all feel HAPPY when they lern to put on a perfect depressed face.

So, in short, they are all clones born of a stereotype of punk kid that was usually depressed.
they say they dont do what's popular, but they became emo kids cuz its whats hot for ppl their age, and they say they will kill theirselves if they want to, but point a gun in their face n they shit in their pants and beg for mercy...

those stupid but hullarious to watch kids that go around in tight ass pants & stud belts &black converse & the straightened swoop bangs w/ black or verry dark hair that talk about how much they hate their lives && about killing themselves even though we know, and so do they, that they will never have teh balls to do it. oh, and they commenly wear cheap stunnas from warped tour or hottopic & they can even be cought in hollister from time to time. Basicly, theyre teh biggest fucking posers on the planet.
an example of an emo convorsation between an emo kid its a girl && her non-emo bf:
emo bitch: FUCK THIS! i hate my life! im going to kill myself!
Bf: No, baby please dont!
Emo bitch: what the fuck do you care?
BF: I love you
E.B.: Bullshit!
BF: fine bitch, whatever blows your brains out. *hangs up fone*
E.B.: *cries*

*The End*

notice how the emo bitch doesnt auctualy do anythign but cry and cuss.
