A bunch of whiny, white, middle class teenagers. Can go on a week long emotional rollercoaster just because someone finished all the Coco Pops.
Emos normally tend to have a lot of msn/myspace friends. Do not be alarmed, it is not because theyre well liked, actually, emos manifest with other emos which creates this large whiny group of teenagers. Emos have long, greasy, unwashed hair, which is required to cover at least 2/3 of the face.
Emo music is commonly known as soft-cock punk, often containing seemingly-castrated emos singing in whiny high-pitched voices.
Found in corners, normally crying, the male emo attracts the female emo by either writing a soft-cock emo song containing droning guitar riffs or striking a conversation on how much life sucks. Characterised by the movement of their heads, as every 2 meters they walk they swing their heads in an attempt to stop their greasy hair sticking to their face.
If an emo is contemplating suicide by cutting his/her wrists, remember to remind him/her, it's down the road, not across the street.
Preferred killing method is disemowelment, do not decapitate, theyre just like roaches.
Preferred bait for emos are iPods or Chucks signed by Fallout Boy.
It is really very satisfying to punch an emo, try it some time.
If you ever see an emo walking the street, be sure to run him/her down with your car. The fewer the better.
Person 1: OH MY GOD, THAT EMO JUST GOT HIT BY A CAR!!!
Person 2: Good.
Person 1: Yeah..
-------------------------------------------
Emo Boyfriend: Hey
Emo Girlfriend: Hey
Emo BF: Life sucks
Emo GF: Yeah..
Emo GF: You want something to drink?
Emo BF: Yeah get me an orange juice
Emo GF: Theres none left...
Emo BF: OH GOD!!! (sobs)

Emo is often confused with Emotional Sensitivity, and is more often linked to boys then girls, because of the so very 'unmanly' manner in which an emo boy acts.
Male emotional senstivity is a guy who does not feel the urge to be a macho pea-brained asshole whos only emotion is arrogance and violent anger. A sensitive male realizes that guys can cry, and say the word 'beautiful'. They can also like flowers and admit that there are other guys out there that are hot, and do lots of other 'gay' things while completely content with their heterosexuality.
(an interesting thing about this is that it is quite ok for girls to sit on each other's lap and hug and go to the washroom together etc etc and not be considered homosexual, but if a guy strikes up a random conversation on the bus with another guy, he's a faggot.)

This being said, an EMO (short for emotional) is someone (guy or girl) who has taken the dark, evil, brooding, shadowy and mysterious genre that goes by the name of goth, and mutilated it into a subculture of whiney sniveling teenagers. An emo is someone who dresses very similar to a goth, wearing makeup and black clothes, but is easily defined often by the lopsided swooping haircut that causes them to be half blind all the time.
A goth makes you uncomfortable standing next to them on a long bus ride, and if done right are dark and creepy and cool looking. Take the band Type O Negative, for example.

Emos most of the time have a look of eternal sorrow pasted on their face, and spend their time whining because life is so tragically devestating and heartwrenching. They cry and snivel and cut themselves to gain attention, as opposed to the noble masochistic origin of the hobby. When you see an emo you will want to puke because of how synthetically pretty and childish they look, and then drop kick them.

Emos have ruined the very normal practice that is talking about emotionally hard times to someone close.

"How are you today?"
'Well, to be honest, I feel really lonely. I sit at home more than I'd like and don't really have
(m)any friends. *shrugs apathetically*'
"zOMG... Don't be so emo..."
'...You asked how I was. I am telling you honestly how I am feeling.'
"EMO. Cry me a river... *emo tear*"

This video will familiarize you instantly to what an emo is, if you are still confused in any way: (again, remove any spaces)

Emo is something that Green Day has got nothing to do with....
F U C K THOSE WHO WROTE THAT GREEN DAY IS EMO
examples:
4) People who listen to the following: Fall-Out-Boy, My Chemical Romance, Good Charlotte, Greenday
by Meagan Eden Rogers
me: F U C K it is Green Day, not Greenday
...... ..... ...... ....... ......
Just because you dress like Green Day, doesn't mean you're emo! You guys frustrate me so much! AH!!!
by xoxo_stained_your_wrist

........ .......... ........ ........... ........
Green Day is the worst Punk/Emo band ever
by COOJ
........ ........ ............ ................ .........
Some One that slits their wrists or any part of the body, listens to crappy emo music like Simple Plan, GreenDay and The Used.
by CAMBO
......... .............. ............. ............ ......
ME: why the f u c k do you think that Green Day is emo? Do they dress like emos? NO!!!!!

Do they have emo lyrics? Well if you think that "when masturbation's lost its fun, you're fu c kin g lazy" is emo, then their lyrics are soooo emo =)))

Or this one is a "great" example of emo lyrics, it's from the song called "burnout"
" I THREW MY EMOTIONS IN THE GRAVE - HELL WHO NEEDS THEM ANYWAY "
..... ............. ............. .............. .........
F U C K, GREEN DAY IS NOT EMO!!! THEY HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT EMO SHIT!!!
correctly: Green Day is the greatest rock band in the world right now.
incorrectly: Green Day is great emo band.

Emos wear makeup and cry lots. They claim that they aren't scared to be themselves. If this was true they would admit they are useless would stop acting depressed. Maybe then they would get a little more respect. When they aren't getting their asses kicked, they get drunk and have sex with dead animals. Emo guys will do anything to make themselves look like a faggot. Some of these dipshits even claim to be straight. Emo's think people give a shit about some stupidass emotional trauma they suffer from. They have greasy hair and they usualy suck.
Spliffy - Hey Emo Kid, makeup is for homo's!
Emo Kid - Lots of straight people wear makeup
Spliffy - No they don't
Emo Kid - You're right, I suck and you're better than me.

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

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.
