A group of teenagers and early adults who listen to music that is based majorly on emotions. They are goth kids who want to be punk.. but are to sad to do so and they're also a bunch of trendy kids... They typically tend to be wearing all black mostly, dyed black hair (usually covering most of the face or full throttle bangs) with think black square plastic glasses, hightops or low tops and band t-shirts/bunnyhugs or thrift store clothes, they also have their ears stretched to some sort of gauge. they have major mood swings, and are usually depressed or outragously happy and then real angry and then sad and then angry and then happy and it's so random. their favorite music is mainly some guy whining about how is girlfriend/boyfriend broke up with him and he can't stand himself and so he should kill himself or it's about something else "tragic" or amazingly "beautiful"... Emo kids tend to whine a lot about how their lives are so unbearble and depressing.. when really they mostly have lives just like the rest of us.. and just need to learn to deal with it.. They also are known to carry around song books containing their "inner most soul" and can "play" guitar (and by play i mean.. can't play at all) they also have a habit of listening to uhknown underground emo bands and when they hear other people listening to them they are likely to just stop listening to that band because they "sold out" and will find a new unknown band to idolize... they are real weird.. and i suggest not talking to them.. although they can be really entertaining..
a quarter of the kids in any major city. the used... My Chemical Romance.. Deathcab for cutie.. i dunno any others.. i hate emo.. they should like.. die or something.... hahaha... how many emo kids does it take to screw in a light bulb?! NONE!!! they are all too busy trying to kill themselves in the dark..

To me, it's a label. A stupid steriotype.
Emo's ARE NOT wrist cutters. Wrist cutters are wrist cutters.

Emo's can laugh and smile.

It's not a bad damn thing! Some of my best friends are emoish. I don't see why people like to make fun of them.

MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE IS NOT EMO!

Not all emos where tight pants.

We dont go and cry every time we get made fun of. Some of us can beat your ass :]

And that is my definition of emo.

If you don't like it, then screw you :]
Prep: Fawking emo!
Emo: ...-Punches the prep right in the face- HA!

This word has lots of meanings, but it is mainly used as a negative term for a fashion and music style that though perfectly acceptable is considered bad. This term has been used to stereotype people and deindividualise them(in particular teenagers) as something that in reality does not represent them at all.

Many people claim to hate "emo's" meaning they hate people they stereotype as emo. This makes very little sense, as it means they hate someone for the way they look and the music they like. This does not reflect their personality. Basically, if used seriously emo is a term used by pathetic narrow-minded losers who just have no respect for other peoples tastes and seem to think they know what everyone is like by how they are dressed. They are also stupid enough to think a fashion trend will make someone self-harm.

Most people who use the term emo negatively and seriously are people who can only see the surface of anything as if they actually thought about it they would realise that maybe emo kids are teenagers who were originally generally more emotional/thoughtful/sensitive than most and found the emo fashion and music to fit their taste.

If thats what they like wearing and thats what they like listening to then let them and bugger off!!! They wear it because they like it. Same reason you wear what you wear and you listen to what you listen to, you emo haters are not supreme beings who can decide what is and isn't good taste so get lost you socially conforming arseholes!!
Boy 1: Urgh look it's an emo fag
Boy 2: What makes you say he's a fag?
Boy 1: He's wearing makeup, how gay is that?
Boy 2: He's allowed to wear makeup isn't he? Doesn't make him gay, just means he doesn't conform to his gender stereotype.
Boy 1: Duuuh, what? Your gay... uuur i'm cleffer
Boy 2: Yeah... ok mate, bye!

a) short for the term emotional...in a musical sense
b) music derived in the 80's... with such bands as Rites of Spring, Texas is the Reason, and more.
c) can be used to describe a person who listens to emo, can relate to most of it and then cry because they can relate to it and not just because its emo.

emo music is not punk.

emo music usually contains lyrics which have a desperate side to them. written usually about a past girlfriend or experience.

A strange breed of human that can be identified by stupid haircuts, suicidal tendencies, constant whining, the wearing of tight pants, and usually no mate. Because of this, scientists believe that most males in this species lack reproductive organs.
Stop whining, you emo.
