Bands that, much like emo kids themselves, all look and sound very similar. In fact, there may be pretty much no difference between Emo Band A and Emo Band B. That's how annoying it can get.

Emo bands may have a lot of potential, but sadly, it is all wasted because they try too hard to fit under one stereotype, just like the average emo kid.
Characteristics of emo bands:
1. The singer sounds just like Adam Lazzara
2. Some of the lyrics may be screamed
3. Poppy sound
4. Very simple guitar riffs
5. Two or more of the band members have "emo hair," and the singer is usually one of them
6. Don't forget eyeliner
7. Lyrics include the weirdest, most nonsensical-sounding metaphors ever, something along the lines of "My little period at the end of your sentence..."
8. Songs are about relationships or life in general - they are NEVER optimistic, though they may be upbeat
9. The band members will always deny the "emo" label, much like emo kids (once again)
10. Usually disappear after two or three albums, or with some cases, even one, but not before at least one of their songs becomes a radio hit

A guy, usually between the ages of 15-30, who listens to emo music and have many of the characteristics commonly affiliated with emo people. They usually have semi-long jet black hair that covers about 1/3 of their face (including one of their eyes), may or may not wear eyeliner, and wear rather tight clothing, including tight jeans and tight shirts/sweaters, usually band merchandise. Many also have studded belts, and tend to like Converse or Vans shoes.

Now, about their personality. They usually have a bit of a feminine personality, expressing feelings quite openly, and not really caring about how "tough" they are, as most average guys do. Many are artistically talented, and like to write poetry and songs, or even draw/paint. It is often stereotyped that emo boys cut themselves, but actually, most don't. Those that do, though, do NOT do it simply for attention. They do it because of actual emotional issues they're dealing with. Otherwise they're simply emo posers.

They more often that not are very nice and respectful towards other people. However, most likely they would not be respected by many guys since upon first glance they'll think they're gay. I see this as ignorance, as in fact, most emo boys are NOT gay. Sure, some might be, but more often than not, they're either bi or just straight. Emo boys get along very well with girls for this reason, as girls not only share many of their views, but are also undeniably attracted to them.

I myself share some of the characteristics associated with emo boys. I like emo music, have a slightly soft personality, and get along well with girls. But, unlike the bad stereotypes given to emo boys, I do not cut, nor am I gay or bi. I want people to understand that emos are not all about being depressed and hating themselves. It's just an aspect of your personality that is often anti-stereotypical to an average guy's behavior.
"That emo boy over there is talking to another girl again. They both seem happy, and I'm sure the girl likes him too. I can see why."

Get the emo boy mug.
A stereotypical little bitch who judges emo people based on what they like rather than who they are.

These people will go and say that anyone who listens to Taking Back Sunday, My Chemical Romance, or Hawthorne Heights, or has long sidebangs is a stupid loser with no friends who cries all the time over petty things like a bird flying away from them, is gay, and of course.. cuts themselves. They ALWAYS use the cutting as an excuse to hate emos.

First of all, there are very few emos who actually cut themselves. If they do, then half of the time they're just doing it for attention, and therefore, they're not even emo. They're posers. It's THEM who you should be hating on, not the actual people. Second of all.. there are also VERY few gay emos. Seriously.. they all like the opposite sex. If you'd stop being so narrow-minded you'd be able to see for yourself. And THIRD of all.. most emos are in fact happy people most of the time. It doesn't take something as stupid as what you say could happen to make an emo person depressed.

I know I'm about to start sounding stereotypical myself, but.. the majority of emo haters are either wiggers who follow rap stereotypes much better than emo guys follow their own emo stereotypes, or simply guys who think that their "true metal" is so much better than emo music because it's not mainstream and it's from the 1970's.
Emo hater #1: Yo look at dat emo dude over der bein' such a total wuss lizzening to hiz Taking Back Sunday CD. What a gay fag, he probly cuts himself at home. Now I'm gona go to da mall wit ma slut gf who I only got to rape latur on, and den talk bout how pimpin' gangsta I am. Word!

Emo hater #2: Man, that emo guy there is so stupid! My Chemical Romance are such sellouts because they're popular! Meanwhile, I love to blast my Slayer CD because they're like.. real thrash metal, man.. and actually they're popular too. But hey.. at least they're metal!

You're all wrong. The TRUE emo kids' anthem is Untitled by Simple Plan.
Simple Plan: *cries* HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN TO ME??? *sob* I'ev made my mistakes!1! *whine whine* Got nowhere to *sniff* RUN!! The night goes on as I'm *sob* fading awayyy!! I'm SICK OF THIS LIFE!! *whine* I just wanna SCREEEAMMMM!!! How could this.. happen to me??? *cry again*

Normal person: Ugh!!! Turn that emo kids' anthem off!! *throws rock at the radio*

Get the emo kids' anthem mug.
A person who tries to fit in with the emo label just for attention or popularity (which doesn't make sense because emo people aren't supposed to be popular)

Anyway, here are some ways to spot an emo poser:

1. Act depressed 24/7, even when nothing is wrong in their lives
2. Cut themselves purposefully... and then show it to everyone
3. Must always adopt the complete emo look: dark dyed hair with sidebangs, very tight pants, an emo band t-shirt (like Hawthorne Heights) at least 3 items from Hot Topic, and of course, eyeliner
4. Has a rich family
5. Music lists ALWAYS include the following bands: My Chemical Romance, Hawthorne Heights, The Used, Simple Plan, Fall Out Boy, AFI, and more
6. Throws emo song lyrics around on their myspace/xanga/livejournal/etc., usually as their display name
7. On the above-mentioned sites, include pictures of themselves with the typical myspace angle (weird camera aim which barely allows for the viewer to see the person except for their hair, or at least one of their eyes)
8. Only talk to people who look just like themselves (and may get rejected if they see how much of a poser he/she is)
9. Are anorexic or have some other mental disorder, usually involving their self-image (because all emo posers think they're ugly)
10. Complain about their "hard lives" all the time

In short, emo posers are the reason that everyone hates emos. They're the ones who act like this, so people think that all emos do it too. In reality, true emo people act like themselves, and the only way that they are all alike is that they tend to have a primarily emotional personality. That's it. It has nothing to do with being depressed or mental disorders, or listening to all the same bands, unless you have a good reason for being depressed, did not force the mental disorder on yourself, or listen to the bands because you actually like them.

Though, in reality, I personally do not like most of the bands. They're not in my taste. I'm not gonna insult them though. Only the people who listen to them just because everyone else does, AKA the posers.
Emo poser: omg I'm SOOO depressed, becuz liek look at my ristz their soo bloody huh?!1

Emo: What the hell? You obviously did that on purpose.

Emo poser: Nono no wai I did not! I liek totally got sad and My Cemikul Romanze is mah fave band EVUR!! All mah otha frendz lizzen to them!

Emo: ... Ok, you know what? How about you just keep cutting? It'll be the solution to not only your problem but to ours too. Our reputation will finally be saved!

Emo poser: Oo yea! Good idea! Now Im gunna go take my super-expensiv nife and cut mah ristz while lizzenin to Hawforn Haytz!

Emo: Yea. Hurry up. You need to bleed more. Or, how about you let ME do it for you?
