When a generation lacking any clear, unique identity attempts (in inconsistant, questionably sincere and argueably futile ways) to label and define itself and/or it's cultural elements. This is generally characterized by a sort of quiet desperation, thinly veiled hostility and confusion.
Related to but not synonymous with post-moderism aka "po-mo."
Excessive use of labels such as "emo" and "goth" is very faux-mo.
