Like a Goth, only much less dark and much more Harry Potter.
My life sucks, I want to cry.

It's a word that recently seems to have lost all meaning. It is not music. It is not a style of how people dress. It is not people who cut themselves. It is not a watered down style of goth. It is a almost meaningless word like nice. It is a word that was poked, prodded, overused and left to rot.
That pink and red striped shirt is sooo emo.
You're emo.
Emo music sucks.

Usually a white person, their activites include cutting, crying, writing poetry, and doing non-people things. When sad can be really really depressed. Emos' can also be used for curb stomps. (teeth pressed lightly on a curb, while another person rapidly steps on back of head. Leading to emo with no teeth.)
Hey! Look at that emo! lets go curb stomp him. :]

People who usually think, "I suck. Life sucks. Time to cut my wrist," or something to that matter. They are usually cast away by society, and people look down upon them.
Cho Seung Hil, the Virgina Tech shooter was an emo

Someone who is very emotional. They dress however they want to dress, and they don't always slit their wrists and want to shoot themselves. A lot of emo people just write poetry to deal with life. And just to make a note, emos are not posers. You don't choose to be emo. Emo chooses you. In my opinion, the emo haters need to get to know emo kids before trashing them.

It's also a genre of music.
I am emo, and I don't slit my wrists or want to kill myself. I write poetry to deal with the crappy hand life has dealt me.

It's not people who cut themselves, or hate themselves and life. Not people who dress in skinny jeans with hair over their eye and band tee's. Emo came from emotive music and people began saying things like they cut themselves or all they do is cry, when that style became popular. Emo is really just a style of music that has meaning to it. Instead of things like 'Can't Be Tamed by Miley Cyrus' that has no depth, there is songs like 'Miserable At Best by Mayday Parade' that has depth. Basically, emo came about to label people who have a sensitive side.
Typical stereo type.
Person #1- That guy is wearing skinny jeans and isn't smiling, he must be emo.
Person #2- Yeah. He probably cuts himself every night.
*Person 1 and 2 start laughing*

A type of music that angsty teens listen to while they pretend to cut themselves.

Not hard enough to be called Punk but not bubble gum enough to be called pop. Imagine if Punk, Pop, and a little bit Goth got together and had a child. Emo is what you would get every time because it takes a little bit of everything.

Just take one band and switch the names around and you basically have every emo band imaginable. The same whiny sounding lead singer, the same sounding guitar solos, the same lyrics just in a different order.
Those people who say that My Chemical Romance is emo don't know the physiological level there music is really on. Wow, those guys are so deep and bruting.
