Emo
Okay, so there are two very different definitions for the label 'emo'.

First version (usually used by non-emos): Emos are attention seekers who live regular lives like every other teenager in Britain but cannot handle the strain as well as everyone else. They say that they are individuals, yet listen to ‘emo music’, hang out in ‘emo groups’ and buy ‘emo clothes’ with their pocket money. They hang out in dark rooms generally ignoring the happy things in life and talk about how depressed they are all the time. Most lie about cutting themselves in order for people to feel sorry for them without actually experiencing any pain at all. Others do it as an ‘initiation’ ceremony in order to become fully emo. ‘Cutting’ is a fad – what on earth does it help? You feel sad, so you cut yourself to make you feel… better? They don’t appreciate what they have, and do not realise how bad other peoples' lives are in comparison to their own. Emo is just an ever-increasingly popular ‘group’ which people want to be part of. It is a group for kids without an identity, looking for a bit of melodrama and ‘deeper levels of understanding’. To be honest, the kids who REALLY have a life not worth living aren’t even in the emo club – they just try to get through each day until it gets better.

Second version (usually used by TRUE emos – i.e. those who actually have a reason to be depressed): Kids who have had the misfortune to go through circumstances which are incredibly depressing. For example, parental divorce, death of a loved one, and loneliness. They listen to music which explains how they feel, enjoy hanging around with people who understand how they feel, and buy clothes that express to the world about how they feel. Only some kids cut themselves. Cutting can become addictive, and it distracts from the inner pain. It can be hard when youre labelled in the street because of what you wear, and can sometimes make depression worse. Being a ‘half-emo’ can also mean that you just like black and emo clothes and haircuts, and enjoy gigs and mosh pits. Some people that you like because theyre genuinely nice people, could be emo, and fun to hang around with.

Nearly every single teenager has wanted some form of attention or feeling of belonging at some time or other, and being emo could be the solution to some. Don’t hate people because of what they are labelled. Get to know them – they may be more like you than you think.
Person: 'Hey dude, look over there, some damn emos with their black hoodies and weird hair... jeez man theyre such attention seekers'
Friend: 'Err... you own a black hoodie, and all they've done is grown their hair long, man.'
Person:'Umm... oh be quiet, fool'

Cheerleader:'Oh my god, that girl is like, SOO weird - she is like, always DEPRESSED and shit!'
Friend:'Weren't you crying on the phone to me the other night because your boyfriend dumped you? You seemed pretty depressed then...'
Cheerleader:'Oh shuttup'

emo
emo is a slang term used to describe teenagers today.
it is popular to be emo because of the all the radiant attention you get from it,guys wear skinny jeans,have jet black hair(sometimes brown-dark brown),can barely see through their hair and are always flicking it to see clearly,they consider this sexy.
girls love emo guys and only date them,it was first a catch of the millenium now it's so normal you can practically marry one without hassle.
mp3/ipod lists my chemical romance,panic! at the disco,afi,fall out boy and some other random unknown 'emo' bands to show how intellectual they are.
emo kids are faking,not a single real one exists anymore,if they dye their hair,they're faking.
emo is practically over now,people consider it embarassing and are desperate to either cut their hair or grow their hair back again....sad,when they were the ones bragging 'emo 4 life'...

my question....what's next?
emo kid: i totally regret doing this now...(chucks out mcr cd)
emo girl: i can't wait to grow my hair again...what was i thinking?
former emo kid: i hate emos they are so gay and dumb and...(you get the idea)

emo
Emo meaning emotional is a new craze across the young 'uns! emos can be spotted by a greasy fringe, skinny jeans, hoodies and a general grunting distain for those around them. Emo gangs try to act depressed and generally buy a copy of marilyn mansuns greatest hits. They pretend to know everything about punk and rock (even though most of them weren't born when kurt cobain died)they wear t-shirts saying 'kurt cobain died for us' which in short is a pretencious pile of wank that's spread across our society! Don't get me wrong I appreciate that everybody has problems, and i am by no means a chav... (they're all scum and should be shot!)... but come on people. We are british, we do not parade around showing our emotions and slitting our wrists and acting depressed. We as a nation are supposed to have the stiff upper lip and generally repressed attitude to our feelings!
It needs no example just look at a group of depressive teens and you'll see the emo crowd.

emo
Emos are people that shop at hot topic, cut their selfs an talk about suicide because they don't have shit in life to be depressed enough to, or have big enough balls to really kill their selfs.

OR, Goths that find life easier to buy clothes with chains an straps already attached while still claiming to be a goth, they are just a subclass added to the hot topic scene.

OR, Punks, pretty much like hot topic goths
We should fucking burn down all the Hot Topics to stop the EMO CANCER. That would be very emo.
