Combineing the worst possible aspects of it's parents emo's are lving proof that two wrongs not make a right.
Because of their love of Hitler-esque extreme side partings, sullen expressions and men wearing make-up crowds of emos generally resemble Neo-Nazis at a Motley Crue gig.
Emo is a shortened version of Emotional & used as a name becuase it is thought describe their sensitive, thoughful state of mind, although a moore accurate name would 'Twats'.
'No. It's becuase you're a cunt'

-Long, usually straightened hair, flipped to one side of the face.
-Tight skinny jeans, usually black, grey, reds, or certain neon colors.
-Black horn rimmed glasses
-Band shirts, striped clothes, checkered patters, all black shirts, etc all can be common apparel for emo kids.
-Slip on Vans are a favorite for emo kids shoes. Typically any kind of skater shoe may be worn as well.
In conclusion, I myself have been called "emo" and im your typical emo kid. i have cut before and do wear skinny jeans etc. i feel just the same as any other emo kid. i get picked on, made fun of, and called names because of who i am. Deep down inside ALL emo people are really friendly people. You dont even need to look deep down inside. Haters just need to stop judging us for who we are. I love EVERY emo person on the face of the planet. We are all here for each other, us emo's. Emo ppl RULE!!
Jane: "Me too."
Jack: "Wanna be friends?"
BE WARNED OF EMO WANNABES -- people who cut their hair, wear the makeup, pretend to cut, and generally act like a-holes. They are not emo. They are WEMO - wannabe emo. Also be aware (but friendly) to the ELMOs - they dress emo but they are happy outgoing people and love to laugh and be normal with their friends -- they are ELMOs (they try to be Emo but come off more Tickle-me-Elmo)
Emo kid #1: So...yeah...that was sweet...
Emo kid #2: Yeah...it was really okay I guess...
Emo kid #1: I got a tatoo to express my feelings...
Emo kid #2: Wow...nice...

Wemo girl: OH WOW, DID YOU SEE MY SNAKE BITE PIERCINGS? LATER I THINK I'LL DYE MY HAIR BLUE BECAUSE I'M AN INDIVIDUAL AND SARA DYED HER HAIR BLUE TOO!
Wemo boy: SHUT UP, I'M REFLECTING ON HOW FUCKED UP MY LIFE IS...
Elmo kid: OH MY GOD! I LOVE EGGS! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
The DC emo scene exploded and became excessively popular amongst the underground. However, it fizzled out almost as fast as it had begun.
In the early 90's, two new bands, Sunny Day Real Estate and Jawbreaker, started the new wave of emo music. SDRE started the "post indie emo" genre. Bands that can be categorized under this genre could be Texas Is The Reason, Taking Back Sunday, Mineral and other music following those lines, that are often confused for emo.
Jawbreaker were the new wave of emo revival, although still remotley underground, the music continues to be popular with the people who can search it out.
Thanks to MTV, the perception of what real emo is has been completely changed and most people do not understand what it is, automatically assuming that DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL or anyone else with an acoustic singing about breakup is emo. Emo isn't pussy music, it's heartfelt, and hardcore at the same time. An angry emotional release of self loathing and self depreciation.
