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.

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.

Emo. There are many diffrent types of emos. I would know, I happen to be "emo". Here is a list of the diffrent types of emos:

The Fake Emo(Known as the "Wannabee Emo"): These kids listen to Teenagers over and over and wear black, dye their hair black and sometimes (NOT ALL THE TIME, DONT STEROTYPE DAMMIT) cut themselves so that they seem emo. These kids are not emo. They are annoying and make a bad name for the "true" emo.

The Real Emo: This is someone who probably has some sort of tragedy happen, such as parents being alcoholics or being depressed because of a mental condition (Personal Experience). These kids should not be made fun of because many of them are going through extremely hard times. But, sadly, there are people who don't even bother to look and see that these people may really be in trouble! Heck, its very hard to find a real emo because most of them are in the closet about their emoness.

The Real, Hardcore Emo: These are the worst. These are the emos that have been real for close to a month and they begin to nosedive. They cut deeper and they become increasingly mean to freinds at school or to people in the workplace. They may also start burning or pinching or some other form of Self-Injury. These kids should NEVER be made fun of. They are, many times, mentally unstable and many will attempt or have many thoughts about killing themselves. If you know about someone that is cutting or talking of suicide, they are becomeing a hardcore emo, and they have a slight chance of living.

Please, don't make fun of emo. It's just cruel. I was made fun of as an emo, and then I went to a rebalitaion center for a month, which felt like jail. I was set up with a professional and finally got back to normal. I'm taking perscribtion meds to feel better. Emo isn't a joke. It can be dangerous.
The Fake Emo:

Faker: Dude, I'm so depressed today! I wanna cut and cry to MCR!!
Normal People: You wannabee fucktard. Get real or go pretend some more.

The Real Emo:
Real Emo: I wish my parents wouldn't fight, they make me so sad, and I don't have anyone to talk to.
Normal Person: Dude, that sucks!

The Hardcore Emo:
Hardcore: I can't take this man, I'm so sick and I want to kill myself. I can't take the pain.
Normal: Dude, get help!! Don't kill yourself!
