its basically described by society as a type of person or is basiclly a insult all together but in real cases its a type of music evolved from punk rock just like many other that evolved from punk rock as well. In Standards emo is dead well not nesicarly dead but lets just say is not
so "easy" to find a REAL emo band now a days. If you people didnt know before Hawthorne Heights isnt emo and all the other bands out there such as like my chemical romance and what not are also not emo MCR is post punk or pop punk so is HH basically because most/all of there lyrics are sad or deperessing were in real life emo is about the instrumentals yes there a some emo music with no lyrics yes i know its ODD~~~~ the genre of emo orignated in the 1980s time period 1986 is basically the most accurate time period and died out in the early 1990s and pop punk is suppose to be there so called "resurrection" the whole clothing thing has nothing to do with emo. Emo was basically all about the music they basically did have a clothing to go with it but it was basic and not focused on the clothing was basically solid pocket tees and no brand clothing with earth colors black ,white, brown ect.


Now a days what you see tellum haircuts and multi colored hair and skinny jeans and stripped leggings and billions of more other things people call "emo" are actually "scene" Scene is a type of fashion that again originated from punk and has some of its aspects and like i said is called EMO by stupid people that have no knowledge at all and try to make people feel low and bad about them selfs.
Emo is also a stereotype which is not a true because a music can not be a person or anyother thing cause its impossiable. The Stereotype is that most of people that are apart of 3m0 are typically sad all day hate there life are gay cross dress and so on when in real life all this is untrue people just make up these fibs to make people or mad or just because they dont like the style or w.e and try to cause other people to hate that w.e thing it is and other people to harm it.



Some people actually try to make emo w.e a cult or something thats just stupid it is the real ordeal is its music that has died out and some other thing ressurected from and is totally different i think its wrong to separte your self from sociey yes it good to be different but separting your self or trying to be in a cult is wrong because with or with out the clothes or hair or acsessories your still a human being.

i personally like some real emo bands and i have my share of pop punk bands that i like i like all kinds of music i think theres good in all music but im just sick of these little groups or w.e that are trying to be created trying to dress in a particaller style and listening to only one type of music or w.e gets boring, limits your you fun intake ability and everything there are no phiscal border that says NO DONT GO INTO HOT TOPIC YOUR NOT LIKE THAT OMG ITS SOOO WRONQ people made clothes to sell they dont give a shit if you it likes right on you they just sell it to get money and if you think it really looks wrong on you then dont fucking wear it all clothes are the same just the fabric and design and how you wear it is different and creating group and such are ruining peoples choices and basically life because they are limiting people clothing choices and mixing clothing is bascially POSERISSHHH :| come on thats stupid im just really pissed off and amazed how this is a big fucking deal wear what you want and talk to the people you want listen to music you want and stfu if you want to be cool you wont waste fucking 600000000 dollars on clothes just to talk to angelina or micheal or just to be cool its just pointless.

For all you stupid people out there get your shit straight before you start talking and care about yourself and other fucking stuff that matter, and posers if being cool is fucking importaunt and following fashion and stuff is a need go ahead and waste 90343254235323255 dollars your just wasting your time

A new fad that has blown out of porportion. The people that you may see conforming to the outter appearences of others that usually consist of the same hair style and the same attire. Of course, most of them are left in the dark when it comes to the emo music in the '80s which is how emo started, but thats just because they are ignorant and only care about fitting in. Most of them claim to be depressed, that their life sucks, that they want to die, that they have TRIED to commit suicide, ect. Of course, as they probably took two tylenol and said that they tried to kill themselves with pills, they do not try to do it again! If you want to die, you wouldn't give up after the first try. Also, they are very self-centered and never even stop to realize that their lives are way better than many other people's, not to mention people's lives outside of America, which in most cases would be MUCH worse.

In short, an emo is a teenager that wants attention so they dress, act, and do everything the same as a group of people. They cut themselves, but JUST ENOUGH to leave a scar, so that people will be able to see they have a "horrible life". And the emo lifestyle is a plague to the minds of the children.
EMO KID:

I think that, before I go home, and before my mom gives me a bunch of hugs and kisses, and my father gives me my allowance of $50, and I watch MTV to find new things to buy so I can be more like that one cool kid I see every day, I'm going to plan out how I'm going to tell my friends tomorrow that I cried tonight and tried to kill myself by slitting my wrist... First, I must give myself a small cut over my vein, OH, GOD, I HOPE THIS DOESN'T HURT! "OW, MOM, CAN I HAVE A BAND-AID?" Oh, and also, I should write a BS poem about the constant torture I went through as a child, and how everyone hates me, and how I hate myself.

Emo, or "emotional music" can be summed up by:
- I hate myself
- My life has no meaning
- Guitar solo

"Emo" people are commonly confused with gothic, but being slightly different in the sense that gothic people tend to hate the world more than themself
The generic Emo song:
My girlfriend left me,
****screaming****
I'm going to cry and cut myself,
My life is horrble,
I have no reason to live,
****guitar solo****

Stupid fuckers that cut themselves and listen to shit music. Usually they cut themselves because they have "problems", like "my boy/girlfriend broke up with me", or "i cant go to the *generic emo-band* concert because i need to go to my grandmothers funeral!" and shit like that. EMO CUTTERS DONT HAVE ANY REAL PROBLEMS!! People with real problems dont resort to cutting, they know how do deal with it, or at least know to get help. Emo kids just mope and whine all day and have to be bisexual and wear girl pants because i guess having balls is too much extra weight for them to carry along with the rest of their crappy lives.
emo kid: "Hey i have an idea, how about since i cant express my "pain" by going to a therapist, ill just take this rusty knife and cut myself to help me forget about my fake sadness. Im sure that id rather die of blood loss than face my "problems" and end up living a happy life."
