"Early Emo's Influence
In California, particularly in the Bay Area, bands like Jawbreaker and Samiam began to mix the DC influence with pop punk to come up with their own take on the classic DC emo sound. On Jawbreaker's album Bivouac, singer Blake Schwarzenbach evolved from the traditional hardcore vocal sound into a more melodic crooning, which displayed a more emotional feeling of loss than the desperation and frantic nature of MacKaye's voice. Other bands soon reflected the same sense of rough melody, including Still Life and New Jersey's Garden Variety. The style continued to evolve into the 2000s through bands like Avail and Hot Water Music.

Also in the early 90s, bands like Lifetime reacted in their own way to the demise of youth crew styled straight-edge hardcore and desired to seek out a new direction. While their music was often classified as emo, it was also considered to be melodic hardcore. In response to the more metal direction their hardcore peers were taking, Lifetime initially decided to slow down and soften their music, adding more personal lyrics. The band later added a blend of speed, aggression, and melody that defined their sound. Lifetime's sound, lyrics, and style were a virtual blueprint for later bands, including Saves The Day and The Movielife."

"The Second Wave (1994–2000)
As Fugazi and the Dischord Records scene became more and more popular in the indie underground of the early 1990s, new bands began to spring up. Combining Fugazi with the post-punk influences of Mission of Burma and Hüsker Dü,"

emo
A steryotype for teenagers.
Emos generally have died black hair that covers part of the face (mainly the eyes) and wear tight fitting clothes.
The word 'emo' is short for 'emotional' and generally refers to someone of roughly the above description who 'is not afraid to' express their feelings of hatred about the world. For example, a person who openly feels wonderful about society is not emo. An emo feels hard done by and skeptical about society, and some become so depressed by their own dark thoughts that they try to 'end the nightmare' and commit suicide. The most comonly thought of way of doing this is slitting their wrists.
Some emos go a step further in expresing their feelings by being open about their sexual preferences, see 'emo boy kissing' for more info.
i hate the world, therefore, i am emo.

emo
another word for faggot!
all emo's deserve to die
they should all kill themselves instead of just threatening to!
literally, emo's are just people who take what is another groups style and make it their own, there all wanna-be's!
i.e: emo's stole pinstripes and drainpipes from the "punk" group

if you call someone emo and they deny it, they most likely are
and if they say they dont cut themselves, there just posers!
EMO: omgzz my life is a complete fiasco!
punk: stfu emofag!

Emo
Teenagers that really dont know what they have.
They just want to be cool like everyone else.
Emo teenagers usually think they are the sexiest thing since Chuck Norris, but they are 98.99% wrong most of the time.
Emo children not only think they are sexy, Emo children have the worst possible hair styles in all of America.
Emo children really show what the United States of America is.
Dude 1: Dude. Like. My hair. Is so short. You can see the bottom of my bottom lip...like that guy from that Emo band..
Dude 2: Dude. Seriously. Youre gay. Oh em jee. Look at what I did to my wrist this morning.
Dude 1: What you dont care about my hair?! WHY!!?? *cry*
Dude 2: Okay dude. Seriously. My parents work at McDonalds and Burger King. Your parents are neurosurgeons okay. Im only friends with you so I can get whatever I want.
Dude 1:OH EM JEE DUDE! I LOVE YOU!! WHY!!?? WHERE THE HELL IS MY RAZOR!!?? *cry* *sob*
Dude 2: Okay....

emo
young teenage children who think that attention is never theirs, so they decide that cutting themselves will be a great alternative. they decided that listening to music like fall out boy, silverstein, and panic! at the disco, will make them seem cooler to the other teens at their school. they pretend that their lives are miserable, and complain about every thing that goes on wrong in their lives and take every thing for granted. emos are usually bisexual, or gay/lesbian. very small amout of them are straight
emo boy: uggh, my mom grounded me again. she caught me out with braxten.
emo girl: ohh that sucks, wanna come over later and watch steel magnolias, and cut ourselves?
emo boy: sure, but can we also complain about our rich lives and how every body ignores us?
