This is what I am. It may sound a little contradictory, but most things in life are. I listen to Ska, Punk, Goth, and Emo music, and dress in a vivid mixture of these fashions. Someone like this will gravitate towards certain kinds of Ska, with a cheerful, lively tune and horns, but with quite morbid lyrics.See some Reel Big Fish and quite a bit of Mustard Plug. Contrary to what many people will tell you, the lifestyles of Gothicism and Emo are not just something that a teenager 'decides' to be. Anyone who decides to be Emo or Gothic is a poser, though they are most likely real if they started out badly, as something like a Chav or Prep, and then slowly progressed toward being a Goth or Emo over a period of years, usually without them even noticing until it's happened in full. And by then it is too late, and they have joined our ranks. A Rudie is NOT the same thing as a Chav or Pikey. They are completely different, and all you need to be a Rudie is a love for Ska and that rude attitude n_n.
