emo
A softer genre of rock music that is marked by its excessively melancholy trappings. This extends to the heavily overwrought song lyrics, the persistence of the "Emo Kids" to appear brooding, mysterious and tortured, and the bands' very names.

"Emo Kids" are, to put it bluntly, constantly in the pursuit of the complete self-obliteration of any sort of perspective. Evident from the idolized paragons of emo culture(songs, that is) Emo kids dwell incessantly upon their emotions, usually of love, regret, heartbreak, and/or internal torment. To be frank, it seems that they simply cannot concentrate on anything other than themselves, while failing to realize that their dilemmas are not, in fact, very unique, and that everyone else in the world learns to deal with life...without forcing themselves to conform to some sickening subculture that only breeds self-imposed misery.

Which leads us into the next aspect of the emo lifestyle--the cult of emotional angst. Emo Kids are known to be cutters, which, sadly, has cheapened such a dangerous habit. Before, shall we say, the Emo Era, cutting was not flung around as "street cred," of sorts, it was (and still is, to those who truly suffer from it) a psychological problem that needed addressing. However, the emo culture has warped this harmful practice into something rather glamourous, a sort of rite of passage. This, along with many other rituals, are self-inflicted, for the most part--that is, Emo Kids brainswash themselves into believing they are deep, dark, and mysterious because they cut themselves/write, for the most part, amateurish poetry/take trite, black-and-white photographs to put on myspace/etc.

Emo Kids are nearly always teenagers, and though they do not like to admit, fill the stereotype of self-possessed adolescents to a tee. Frankly, Emo is a phase--a highly annoying one, but a phase nonetheless.
Emo is marked by an highly aesthetic element as well--tight pants, band T-shirts, argyle, and black-rimmed glasses are commonplace.

in a country like America.

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 1:OH EM JEE DUDE! I LOVE YOU!! WHY!!?? WHERE THE HELL IS MY RAZOR!!?? *cry* *sob*

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?
