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 strange breed of human that can be identified by stupid haircuts, suicidal tendencies, constant whining, the wearing of tight pants, and usually no mate. Because of this, scientists believe that most males in this species lack reproductive organs.
Stop whining, you emo.

a) short for the term emotional...in a musical sense
b) music derived in the 80's... with such bands as Rites of Spring, Texas is the Reason, and more.
c) can be used to describe a person who listens to emo, can relate to most of it and then cry because they can relate to it and not just because its emo.

emo music is not punk.

emo music usually contains lyrics which have a desperate side to them. written usually about a past girlfriend or experience.

Attention whores. Kids and young adults who really don't have any actual problems, and instead decide to use their creativity, or lack thereof, to craft false problems.

Emo kids are mostly seen with acoustic guitars and My Chemical Romance attire, as well as black hair that simply screams "kick me in the balls as hard as you can".

High-pitch nasally voice can often be heard uttering the words "You just don't understand", followed by the sound of slamming door, then muffled whimpering as the individual proceeds to scratch their wrist, hoping you'll take notice of their weak and futile efforts to portray suicide and/or self-mutilation.

But most notably, Emos keep records of thier so-called "problems" in diaries. These records mostly include pointless whiny rants:
"Dear Diary, those stupid jocks at school think I'm gay. Why can't they understand that heterosexual boys like me just like to kiss other heterosexual boys once in a while. They're so mean, and it depresses me... They say I'm Emo, even though I'm just misunderstood."
*sniff* *scratch*
"They just don't understand"
"And Karen dumped me today. She says I'm the perfect guy, and that I'm always there for her, just like when her Chimichangas were too cold, and she ended up cutting her wrist out of shear depression. She says it's not me, it's her. She says I'm too good for her. I love her so much... I think I'll express my undying love for her by throwing my pillows and crying... and perhaps I'll write a love song and sing it off-key..."
*sniff*

This word has lots of meanings, but it is mainly used as a negative term for a fashion and music style that though perfectly acceptable is considered bad. This term has been used to stereotype people and deindividualise them(in particular teenagers) as something that in reality does not represent them at all.

Many people claim to hate "emo's" meaning they hate people they stereotype as emo. This makes very little sense, as it means they hate someone for the way they look and the music they like. This does not reflect their personality. Basically, if used seriously emo is a term used by pathetic narrow-minded losers who just have no respect for other peoples tastes and seem to think they know what everyone is like by how they are dressed. They are also stupid enough to think a fashion trend will make someone self-harm.

Most people who use the term emo negatively and seriously are people who can only see the surface of anything as if they actually thought about it they would realise that maybe emo kids are teenagers who were originally generally more emotional/thoughtful/sensitive than most and found the emo fashion and music to fit their taste.

If thats what they like wearing and thats what they like listening to then let them and bugger off!!! They wear it because they like it. Same reason you wear what you wear and you listen to what you listen to, you emo haters are not supreme beings who can decide what is and isn't good taste so get lost you socially conforming arseholes!!
Boy 1: Urgh look it's an emo fag
Boy 2: What makes you say he's a fag?
Boy 1: He's wearing makeup, how gay is that?
Boy 2: He's allowed to wear makeup isn't he? Doesn't make him gay, just means he doesn't conform to his gender stereotype.
Boy 1: Duuuh, what? Your gay... uuur i'm cleffer
Boy 2: Yeah... ok mate, bye!

Mood; apathetic. My parents are squeezing me tighter than my little sisters jeans...which look great on me by the way...people call gay cause like make out with dudes...or four dudes sometimes...but can't a guy be in touch with his emotions and make out with a dude or like four dudes and not be gay? well, I guess you wouldn't understand..no one ever does...where the hell are my candy cigarretes?
What is emo? What is existance? you wouldn't understand.
