What Emo Is And Some History.
Emo is short for emotive hardcore. It's a DIY music style (not a shitty fashion) that started in the 80's. Emo follows (but is not restricted to) the lines of hardcore. Hardcore is a subgenre of punk, therefore, so is emo. The first emo band is often credited to Rites Of Spring. They played with hardcore punk rock energy (as the members were previously involved with hardcore bands) and lots of emotion through their performance and with their audience. Their lyrics seem to have important views about life and a sense of deepness.
"Emo" As A Term.
The term "emo" was generated as an insult to people in the hardcore scene that liked these bands. An emo band's performance on stage (can include crying/moaning/etc. their lyrics and various other events) probably made them look "weaker" to the hardcore kids, which is (why I think) "emo" was directed as an insult.
What Screamo is.
Screamo has evolved from emo. This music style invloves more screaming and often has more melodic breakdowns. Screamo is still emo, therefore follows its guidelines.
What Emo Is Not.
Emo is not short for emotional. Emo is not a fashion. Emo is not "XxXxXxXOMMMFFGZZZZ IM LYKE, SO DEPRESSED!XxXxX!!!1!!111 IM GONNA SLIT MY WRISTZZZZZZZ...LOL..XxXxXxX" Emo was not mainstream (because it was DIY). Emo has nothing to do with being depressed, shitty metaphors, or suicide. Emo is not whiney, bullshit music sung by pubescent males that ...
Seeing as I myself believe that I am one and am told I am one then perhaps I may be able to define the term more appropriately.more...
Emo Goth or Emo-Goth (other variations include Gothmo, Gothymo, Emoth and Emothic) Basically a cross between the subcultures of Emo and Goth, generally having dark views and opinions, being open to a variety of things, not being afraid of others differences and being in touch with their emotional side.

( Example of fuckintruth) The expressed and implied statement and use of grammer in such a way that the truth of thier hearts and hidden desires are exposed to those who know the fuckintruth, even though their words implies a bias opionion. The psychotoss of their loose words to the observer who known a "fuckintruth" sentiment catched the introvert thought of thier crotch and the extrovert observation of thier introverted imagination of the "faggot" eyes. Call them on it and realize that you cannot know the truth without expereincing both sides. One does not speak often of those things he/her are not interest in. These are in need of eduation or freedom of self-denial. They deserve the attention of thier peer to free them as true Americans.

|40.||sad boy rock|
Pejorative term for emo rock.
"After his girlfriend broke up with him, George locked himself in his room all day listening to sad boy rock. A little more Death Cab, or Bright Eyes, and I would've had to pry a razor from his hands."
Crappy actor whom is overhyped , very little emotional range and his primary fanabse is teen girls (obvious from the above post's)
Moronic Girl : Hey did you see the latest Keanu reeves movie
Me : Fuck no , I'd rather watch a plank with googely eyes taped on
An insecure person that is so emotionally unstable and needy, that they have to constantly be coddled and be the center of attention in any given situation. Or a person that is so insecure about their own intelligence and the above average intelligence of everyone in the room, that they constantly need to talk out of their ass about stupid random things that nobody cares about, constantly giving little factoids about the same subject(and the only one they know about) over and over and over and over again, as well as speaking in an overwhelmingly loud voice to overpower anyone else that cares to get a word in. All while being hilariously unaware that everyone in the room takes a deep sigh and rolls their eyes when this person starts to speak.
Even though 29 year old Sarina, who had a rocky relationship lasting about a year and change with her f-buddy turned boyfriend of about 5 years younger, and had just mentioned several times within the past month about leaving him, was an attention whore, so she couldn't handle the fact that her younger sister of 7 years (who everyone seemed to adore because she was lovable, cute and quirky as opposed to an icy bitch that steamrolled anyone who got in her way, among other major personality disorders) had just announced an engagement to her live-in boyfriend of over 3 years, so she did the only thing she could do to make herself feel better and grab the limelight for herself-- she announced 2 weeks after her younger sister got engaged that she too was getting engaged and would be getting married about 1 month before her younger sister in pretty much the same exact fashion as her sister's wedding. This coming out of nowhere and without a ring even, which she chalked up to being something minimal that wasn't needed (she later got one about 1.5 months later when she had the money). Then, later, after several months of hell for the younger sister who was pressured from all angles to join Sarina in a double wedding day reception (to apparently support her financially because she couldn't afford everything herself) that goes against everything that her younger sister and her fiancé wanted for themselves, the wedding goes down and Sarina of course plays the control freak at every...more...
