Emo is whatever you think it is, its different for everyone.
That emo is all depressed and stuff, while that emo is all happy, and that emo is just plain strange.

Emu spelled with an o instead of a u. A big stupid looking bird.
That girl is so emo it's hard not to laugh.

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.

The look a guy has when he catches his dick in his zipper.
No wonder Chet looked really emo last night, he had a zipper accident.

Contrary to popular belief the term 'emo' actually rooted from 'emotive hardcore,' a genre of music arising in Aberdeen, WA in the late-eighties-early-ninties. A group of kids were inspired by Kurt Cobain of Nirvana. However, their music had a much more emotive edge to it than grunge does, hence creating it's own genre 'emotive hardcore.' The majority of the fanbase seen at these shows seemed to fit into a certain category of people, becoming known as 'the emo kids.' Somehow emo developed into a stereotype commonly mistaken to mean 'emotional,' but that's WRONG.
"So who's playing at the show tonight?"

"Uhh like Senses Fail, Saosin, The Number Twelve Looks Like You...."

"So basically a bunch of emo bands."

1) A genre of music that is similar to punk, but a little less rough and with more emotional lyrics. Contrary to popular belief, it does not mean "emotional", it means " emotive hardcore".
2) A label to describe someone. Usually for people with dyed hair, piercings, dark clothing, etc.

You don't have to be depressed, have an eating disorder, or self harm to be emo.

Unlike everyone says, most emos don't whine and really aren't as bad as everyone thinks. The posers, the annoying ones, are scene.
My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, and Panic! At The Disco are considered the emo holy trinity in the emo community.
