emo
Right i've had enough of this bull shit!. If you all think that so called emo's are attention seekers and that they're lives aren't tough then i've got something to change your minds. A few months ago my frinds mum left home deciding that she didn't love my friends dad anymore and she is the only girl in the house now and so she has to bring up her brothers care for them and her father, clean their clothes and do all the work around the house and look after their many pets.And she still goes to her college and goes to work and then has to come home and do more.I am her only real friend.
Yes she did cut herself at one point and she listens to rock music because the lyrics pull her through all the shit life throws at her and she can relate to the music and if you think about it the reason why so called emo's listen to rock is because the lyrics are about things that effect the so called emo's like self harm, family trouble, and love. Instead of all that chav music which is about killing other people. A lot of teenagers have jumped on the band wagon and called themselves emo's but if you ask them the real ones never actually wanted to be called that at all they just wanted to deal with things their own way. i think you will find that the majority of these kids are having family trouble and i agree with definition numer 45, could you cut yourself just for the sake of it.i've cut myself before when i had some serious problems in my life and i know that no matter how much a person wants to be liked they couldn't put themselves through that pain (trust me cutting yourself hurts a lot) a great man once said 'i think sometimes you have to sort of die inside in order to rise up from your own ashes'

so next time you go to put the girl with the cuts on her arm down just think about my friend and what she has to go through everyday she doesn't have '2 loving parents, a comfortable and stable home enviroment or friends'.

emo
Something all stereotypes agree on they hate.
Metalheads, preps, jocks, punk rockers and goths all put aside their differences and agree on one thing: they hate emos.

emo
Emo was once a negative connotation on the new style of music created by such bands mentioned already (Fugazi, Rites of Spring, etc). Now it is an overly-hyped money making process, and has flooded the mainstream radio/tv stations. Trend following kids everywhere have adopted the "emo lifestyle" because it is the newest fad.

Emo
A word people who are old like me come to urbandictionary.com to define so they can point out how they were emo fans before most people looking at this site were in elementary school.
Old Person #1: Have you heard what people nowadays call 'emo'?

Old Person #2: Yeah its so weird. I woulda called them Green Day clones back in '92.

Old Person #1: Them was the days.

Old Person #2: Yeah. I'm gonna go make fun of emo on urbandictionary. People will think I'm an old creep in a young person's world.

Emo
(Noun, Adjective) - A word of many uses, emo generally describes:
A) A genre of music
B) Style of fasion
C) Lifestyle/subculture

(NOTE - The following may be just slightly biased)

Emo music (short for Emocore or Emotional Hardcore) is a derivitive of the mid 80's hardcore scene. Born in Washington D.C., early emo was a mix of hardcore punk with both emotional lyrics and performances, dominated by bands such as "Rites Of Spring" and "Embrace". By the late 90's, most original emo bands had disbanded or changed direction. From 2000 onwards, many bands have unwillingly or unrightfully been labled as emo, such as "Dashboard Confessional" and "Taking Back Sunday". Many "classic" emo fans and outsiders view modern emo music as warterd-down punk rock.

Emo fasion or "the emo look" has a number of simple characteristics. For males, hair should be black (although dark red/brown is acceptable), greassy, have a long fringe and a bang covering one eye. For females, although dark hair is prefered, any colour is acceptable. While hair may be cleaner, it must still cover a large portion of the face. Black shirts and jackets are worn, although on rare occasions an emo may wear a grey or white hoodie. Jeans are the clothing of choice for the emo, although for males anything out of their sisters closet is fine. Footware is typically any sort of skating shoe. To complete the look, apply excessive amounts of eyeshadow (males and females), put on a pair of black horned glasses and start listening to your eyepod.

Emo culture, dominated by middle to upper class suburban white teenagers, is characterised by weak music, self loathing and melodrama. After listening to some emo music (generally, but not always shite), emo-boy will log onto myspace to talk to his emo friends. After blogging about how shit life is, how he fucking hates his parents, and how the whole world hates him, he'll have a look at emo-girls myspace page. A quick look at the 17,000 photos she's uploaded (either of her looking into the distance, her looking up at the camera in a confused and drugfucked way or her at an emo gathering), emo-boy and emo-girl will chat to each other. The conversation quickly turns to how they are both alone and nobody understands them. Emo-boy has had enough of myspace (for a few minutes at least) and decides he is depressed. He writes a "deep and meaningfull" poem, before deciding to end it all. A quick slash of the wrists and it's time to sit in the dark and wait for the end to come. Unfortunately, he only drove the razor 2 milimetres into his skin, so there's a pretty good chance he'll be back at school next week, trying (not very hard) to hide his fresh scars and emotions.

Emo
A stupid trend. Followers of this trend, often referred to as emo kids, think they are "alternative" (how is that possible when MTV stirred it all up?), when infact they are just as much sheeps as the preps. All emo kids look the same. They share the exact same values. They listen to the same horrible bands. Is that to be an individual? Is that unique? No. Most don't even know the origins of emo. Many of them claim they are "non-conformists". These days, "non-conformist" has lost its true meaning and is just another synonym for poser. How does supporting major clothing lines such as Hot Topic make you a non-conformist? You are the antithesis of that. Wake up. The emo trend is like hair-metal; in a few years you'll burn all pictures of yourself, being so ashamed that you had such an ugly haircut.
The third-wave emo movement is a testimony on how MTV (Manipulating Teenage Views) is able to pick up just about anything and mold it into a trend in order to make money, even if this results in mindless teenagers who can't think for themselves and destroying what's left of the real music scenes.
