Another classification bolstered into the media and popular culture to turn individuals into a demographic, generating lots of dough for the economy.

If you like music for depth, lyrically or musically, underground or mainstream, rock or electronic, all that means is that you understand what music SHOULD be about. It's not about what artists you listen to, or how "scene" you are, whatever "scene" you most closely tie yourself to. 's going ouIf you listen to only mainstream or only underground music, get a life. Open your minds, kids.

If you get depressed sometimes and see the world as a bleak place, well, damn straight - life isn't supposed to be easy. It's the act of conquering your problems that makes you happy - not avoiding them. And no, being emotional does not put you in the "emo", "fag", or "pussy" class. If you're getting depressed about material possessions (i.e. mom and dad won't buy that new mesh hoodie for you until next month), go buy a nice pretty gun and figure out what to do with it (not your parents, yourself! duh.). If you really think that people are good in nature, please seek counseling immediately.

When you assimilate yourself to one of these cliquey classifications, you could potentially rob yourself of your individuality, and build an invisible wall. It's called "wedge tactics", and the government uses the media to divide its people with them. So if you think that by associating yourself with a preset counterculture you're "sticking it to the man", think again.

The implication is not that falling into an "emo kid" classification, or any predefined social rung, automatically makes you a product - in theory, basing your life around a single preconceived concept does. Try being an individual, even if it went out of style.

BRAINWASHED "EMO KID": That is sooo not scene...
by Double A Def January 18, 2007
an emo kids is a kid that is emo. cant get much more simple than that. but contrare to popular belief most do not cut, well just their wrist for that matter, they might have crappy lives they may not. anyones life can seem meaningless if you look at it in the right direction. Also Emo people do like being alone so whats the point of bothering them just to make fun of em. like wtf. also emo kids dont call them selves emo, so if someone does theyre just looking for atention like FOB. Emo people hate being looked at so dont stare, also it's rude to stare.

"Why are you looking at that emo kid"
"Because I am a fag"

Usually 13-18 years of age, these courageous individuals constitute one of the few stable market segments in the current American economy. Fueled by a seemingly endless supply of their parents money (and the considerably less-endless amount they make working at the mall after school), these brave crusaders for capitalism will purchase damn near anything that's black, 80's pop culture themed, spiky, tight-fitting, or otherwise sold at Hot Topic. They're also some of the top consumers of mobile phone data plans in the nation.

Unfortunately this positive contribution to so many bottom lines makes it impractical to ship them all to a desert island until they grow out of it.
The emo kid's outfit cost $300, but somehow she still looked like shit.

Or
I wonder if emo kids will still buy $20 t-shirts when their mom stops paying their rent?

a typical result of overwhelming teenage angst, built up anger towards "the man", or some type of abuse. Emo kids can be classified by a random grouping of hairs (usually black or bleached blonde) over one eye, lots of random chains on their clothes, and very tight jeans. They usually cut themselves and look depressed, but don't feel bad, they're really just angry and bi-curious.
Tom- "Look at the emo kid over there in the corner!"
Robby- "Yeah he's such a douche bag!"
Tom- "No kidding! I bet he's bi-curious!"

Contrary to all the other definitions here, they ALL listen to emo music (hawthorne heights n shit), all put on emo clothes (their little sister's jeans type, u know), they dont look for other ppl's sympathy because they 'think' they're too cool to, they all have the same hair style (florence henderson hair, but covering half face), and all feel HAPPY when they lern to put on a perfect depressed face.

So, in short, they are all clones born of a stereotype of punk kid that was usually depressed.
they say they dont do what's popular, but they became emo kids cuz its whats hot for ppl their age, and they say they will kill theirselves if they want to, but point a gun in their face n they shit in their pants and beg for mercy...

those stupid but hullarious to watch kids that go around in tight ass pants & stud belts &black converse & the straightened swoop bangs w/ black or verry dark hair that talk about how much they hate their lives && about killing themselves even though we know, and so do they, that they will never have teh balls to do it. oh, and they commenly wear cheap stunnas from warped tour or hottopic & they can even be cought in hollister from time to time. Basicly, theyre teh biggest fucking posers on the planet.
an example of an emo convorsation between an emo kid its a girl && her non-emo bf:
emo bitch: FUCK THIS! i hate my life! im going to kill myself!
Bf: No, baby please dont!
Emo bitch: what the fuck do you care?
BF: I love you
E.B.: Bullshit!
BF: fine bitch, whatever blows your brains out. *hangs up fone*
E.B.: *cries*

*The End*

notice how the emo bitch doesnt auctualy do anythign but cry and cuss.

(negative connotation):A Robert Smith wanna-be, most of whom have probably never even heard of the Cure nor do most understand the meaning of his lyrics. Many often complain about how dark and depressing life is, living in the suburbs with mommy and daddy all the while. Also common to emo kids is a feigned interest in all things deep, dark and meaningful. Nor do most know that true emo originated in the 80's, although not by name, and NOT because it was considered to be cool.
Real emo kids don't hang out at the mall.
