1. An extremely annoying fad for all non-emos, and unhealthy for emos. Basically, a less sinister and evil goth with a few aspects of chav thrown in. They are pretty much all either depressed, or pretend to be, and as such take antidepressants, or try to kill themselves, or pretend to. They wear ill-fitting jeans and sweatshirts, usually striped, and have silly hair. Their favourite colours are pink and black, and they regard everyone else as inferior. They know nothing about real life because they spend most of their time locked in their room with a knife listening to My Chemical Romance and other rubbish like that. They claim to be in touch with their emotions, but are totally incapable of anything other than complete misery.
2. Miserable and depressing whiny form of music that says how life is rubbish and how INSERT ARTISTS NAME HERE just wants to get away by killing themselves, although unfortunately for the rest of us they never do.
"Where's emo boy today?"
"I heard he had to go into hospital cos his mum caught him slitting his wrists"
"Stupid emo"

"Leave me alone. You don't understand me. No one understands me. Let me be, you oppressive narrow-minded fascist. What do you know about me? You're always making generalisations about me."
"Jesus, man, shut up! You don't even know what fascist means, you stupid emo!"

Emo is a type of music not a person so dont fucking catergorize yourself or someone else for fucks sake get it right... also if we must use it as a label all it is is to label a guy/girl who likes to kiss other guys/girls and cry themselves to sleep... anybody who wants to fight me on this can go and get screwed or lets just become emo then we can cry because of a song... lol you crack me up you bunch of fuck heads who dont realise that emo is a music genre not a person
music plays in the back ground

Someone who;
- Wears vast amounts of eye-liner
- Writes really shitty poetry about how bleak and upsetting the world is
- Cuts their wrists in the completely wrong direction when attempting suicide
- Listens to Hawthorne Heights
- Writes on LiveJournal or some other blog site about how depressed they are and how much they wished they could just die
- Wears girl pants
- Claims to be bisexual to be cool
- (Almost exclusively male) Takes pictures of themself making out with a member of the same sex and posts them online... I for one consider this to be the only good thing about emo culture
- Wears lots of stripes and skulls
- Doesn't realize just how badly they're ripping off Goth
Suzie- The word is a sad, sad place... I tried to end my life last night, but I failed yet again...

Meg- Um... that's not the direction to slit your wrists in if you're seriously trying to kill yourself. Are you sure it wasn't just a cry for help?

Suzie- are you mocking my pain?

Meg- ... You can be so fucking emo at times.

EMO. How to explain?
It's not an insult or something to be proud of. EMO is just another label that some person made up to use on them selves so they could be ''original''

Dosnt it have to do with something in the 90's about a type of rock? Emotive Hardcore. Or something like that. In the early 90s there was a movement in the hardcore genre that came to be known as "Emotive Hardcore," spearheaded by Rites Of Spring. Harder-core-than-thou kids, who swore by Dischord Records a la Minor Threat, actually coined the term "Emo" as something of a put-down for the kids who really liked Rites Of Spring, Indian Summer and this new wave of "Emotive" Hardcore bands. That's right, "Emo" was once not something kids called themselves. The field exploded outwards from there - Level-Plane Records has always been the most famous Emo label. Acts like Yaphet Kotto, I Hate Myself, Saetia, Hot Cross, A Day In Black And White, Funeral Diner, I Would Set Myself On Fire For You, You And I, and hosts of others came in the next decade. Most emo bands have since broken up, but there's still the occasional hold-out (again, the majority of Level-Plane Records' roster has been a procession of emo acts). Like most DIY hardcore/punk of the time, a majority found its way onto vinyl and not much else. Some people consider bands like Fugazi, and later Sunny Day Real Estate, a progression of emo, but personally, I don't quite follow that philosophy.

Things that are NOT emo;
-My Chemical Romance =nor is it gothic or punk or demonic=
-The Gap =Preps also shop there=
-Skater shoes =Okay, leave thoes to the SKATERS=
-Saying ''I feel emo today.'' ''I'm so emo, i make flowers cry'' ''I hate my life.'' '' I cut becuase I'm emo and depressed''
-Anti-depressants =okay, leave them to the ACTUALLY deppressed people. now wonder drugs are so expensive.=
- Having 1 million my space pix =Okay, no body needs to see your hair and mouth that many times=
Here is a Fakemo convo...

In the same vein as a murder of crows or a gaggle of geese, a grouping of emos is referred to as a pussy.
"Why is there always that pussy of emos sitting in the same place in the mall?"
"Yeah, way to be different by being exactly the same."
