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 GF: You want something to drink?

Emo GF: Theres none left...
Emo BF: OH GOD!!! (sobs)

Emo = Emotional Hardcore

Contrary to popular belief,
Emo is not about being depressed or cutting,
it's not short for emotional,
it has nothing to do with teenage posers who follow the trend of pretending to be bisexual, depressed, and wearing all black.
It's not a fashion.
The fashion that's commonly referred to as "emo fashion",
is actually called "scene".
And MCR and Fallout Boy are NOT emo.

In actuality, It's a branch off of hardcore punk that started in the mid 80s with the punk band, Rites of Spring.
They hated the glorified violence and restrained music that infected the D.C. hardcore scene,
and took hardcore to a greater level of experimentation
with more emotional lyrics and more melodic instruments.

Soon after, a surge of new bands started forming and creating their own adaption of the style that Rites of Spring innovated.
The summer of 1985 became known as "revolution summer".
Good emo bands from "revolution summer" include:
Rites of Spring, Embrace, Moss Icon, Dag Nasty, Gray Matter,
Nation of Ulysses, and Fire Party.

After the disbanding of Rites of Spring,
Ian MacKaye (from Embrace) and Guy Picciotto (from Rites of Spring) formed the post-hardcore band Fugazi in the early 90s. who influenced bands such as Sunny Day Real Estate, Far, Braid, and Jimmy Eat World.
In my opinion, Sunny Day Real Estate are to mall emo, (the music that's commonly referred to as emo today)
as Rites of Spring are to emo.
They started the whole movement of mainstream "emo" bands.

Happening at the same time,
was the the unground movement of screamo.
Screamo sounded similar to emo,
but louder and with a lot more screaming and slightly different song structures.
Screamo started with bands such as Antioch Arrow, Palatka,
Portraits of the Past, and The Swing Kids.
The music comprised of brutal yet somewhat melodic guitars, loud, fast drums, song structures that switch from quiet to loud, and obviously, screaming vocals.

One thing that's not true is when people say real emo is a dead genre.
because, while mainstream "emo" has taken over MTV and the radio, an underground emo/screamo scene still exists.
Circle Takes the Square, Raein, Daitro, Haram, 1905, and ...Who Calls So Loud, City of Caterpillar are all examples of emo (and screamo) bands from the last eight years, most of them are still existing.
It's not a dead genre, you just have to look for the real deal.
Person1: Is My Chemical Romance emo?
Person2: NO.
Person1: Then what is emo?
Person2: *points to definition*

To me, it's a label. A stupid steriotype.
Emo's ARE NOT wrist cutters. Wrist cutters are wrist cutters.

Emo's can laugh and smile.

It's not a bad damn thing! Some of my best friends are emoish. I don't see why people like to make fun of them.

MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE IS NOT EMO!

Not all emos where tight pants.

We dont go and cry every time we get made fun of. Some of us can beat your ass :]

And that is my definition of emo.

If you don't like it, then screw you :]
Prep: Fawking emo!
Emo: ...-Punches the prep right in the face- HA!

There are lots of different types of emos and they dont all cut or hate everything.
Emos pretty much love music. Its a big part of their lives. Not all emos cut themselves tho some do. If they do, its usually for a good reason and not just planned out for attention (unless they are wannabe emos)They have a certain style and many people hate them but I really dont understand why because they are just kids trying to find who they really are. They probably really do have hard lives. most people dont make shit up like that ok? if you have a good life i dont see why you would. Lots of them are looking for love. I know I am. So Dont judge them.

emos are not all depressed, want to kill themselfs, smoke, cut, biosexual and do drugs. Some do but not all. I personaly like the emo style because they don't dress like sluts and go around picking on people. I also like the color black witch they generaly were. they do often liston to different varieties of rock. And are passionate in their music and friends. They are often more emotional but they can't help that. Sometimes they just need a friend.
Me= look at that emo kid he could use a friend.
You= he looks like a jerk just like the rest of them.
Me= He is really nice once you get to know him. You just need to give emos a chance.
