Emo
Originally a music movement in Washington D.C. combining punk with even faster guitar riffs and screaming, with bands like Rites of Spring and Embrace, emo, or "emocore", became popular on the west coast as well. Most emo bands of this time for breaking guitars on stage, screaming out lyrics, and doing anything else that got people's attention. Basically Jimmy Urine, on crack. Emo's second wave was hit up with a softer more melodic sound with more riffs and songs that were all incredibly long. This came to be with bands like Sunny Day Real Estate, Jawbreaker (which later become Jets to Brazil), and Texas is the Reason. Emo went mainstream and got more people's attention with more popular bands today. These bands include Dashboard Confessional and Phantom Planet. Nowadays, it is incredibly hard to know what true emo is as most people think that popular bands like Fall Out Boy, Panic at the Disco, and My Chemical Romance are emo. However, all of these bands have denied such claims. "emo is bullshit, we're the next Radiohead" -Brendon Urie (lead singer for Panic at the Disco). Emo is now often associated with Screamo. However, this is typically untrue. Hawthorne Heights is under much debate and can be seen as somewhat emo. With songs like Niki FM which follow a second wave emo pattern.

Some bands that are NOT emo include:
Senses Fail
Bullet for My Valentine
Aiden
Hopes Die Last
Alexisonfire
Underoath
From First to Last
The Used

The original style of emo was simply whatever you could find at your local thrift store. Combining the style of your grandpa, with that of a nerd.

There are many more but these are just a few bands that many believe to be emo. Sorry to all the 13 year old girls who actually thought they were truly emo.

"Oh my God, I love My Chemical Romance! I'm so emo!"
"Oh really? Because I like Rites of Spring,"
"Who?"

emo are a bunch of douches who cut their wrists, are fucking depressed the whole damn time and like shit emo music like MCR( My Chemical Romance). And most of all, write poems.
Emo: Hey,what do you think about cutting our wrists and draw broken hearts with out blood in the wall.

(Another one of those fags)another emo: Okay, but let's doing it while we listen the awesome MRC, that way we'll go to the Black Parade when we die.

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?
