What are emos and are there any here?

What do emos were? are there any emos here?

Answer #1

There’s trendy, and then there’s Emo. Trendy- Hot Topic girl pants, slim-fit t-shirts/one size too small, Chuck Taylors, hair but by themselves in “Emo fashion” (I.e., short in back, longer in front covering the eyes. The reverse mullet). Toss on some eyeliner, a sad attitude and you have your basic, trendy Emo kid. Okay, and now for the non-trendy Emo kid description: Cheap clothes from a thrift store that are too small (girl pants, yet again, but not the jeans from Hot Topic), home-made shirts, hardcore (as in genre) band shirts, punk band shirts, maybe toss in some Bauhaus. Emo kids are pretty much the reject Goth kids of the suburbs. They have no plight, no bad lives. They’re just sad that they don’t get to have a new(er) car when they turn 16. Emo kids are a spin-off of the Goth/Punk scene from the 1980’s. Thank you My Chemical Romance, The Used, Atreyu, and so on. (Basically, the entire line-up of the Warped Tour 2005 contributed to the Emo Kid craze.)

Answer #2

No one is emo because emo is a stereotype. Unless they try to fit into the mold created by everyone else who thinks they know what they’re talking about.

The Warped tour was not emo.

Those bands have been around wayyy before this “emo” plague started.

Know your stuff before you talk.

Answer #3

well, first off all emos dont cut themselves and cry. its their choice if they want to. well, im not emo but, emos are emotional (at least some are), they wear black, black nail polish, eyeliner/mascra. and emos are around. some also skateboard. so yea, thats what emo is. and emo is also a genre/style of music. like rap, hip hop, etc… so yea.

Answer #4

Emo is a music genre, but it seems to me that these days its been used a stupid label associated with self harm and depression.

To be honest, its one of the most pathetic labels ever. Its better to be yourself.

Wearing tight jeans, liking my chemical romance and crying doesnt make you emo. I dress like that and feel like punching anyone who calls me it. haha.

Answer #17

First Question
Emo is short for emotional, and it is actually a music genre, but has kind of spiralled of into a label. They dress in hottopic often, and listen to bands like Billy Talent and FOB. Second-Hand Serenade is also a favourite. You can also be an extreme emo and just mope about stuff, stuff you don’t really need to mope about and cut themselves or write poetry about there cruddy lives. Second Question Uh, I am half screamo quarter decadora girl an eighth emo and another eighth prep/ronin! Yeah, I am Hyper: ALL THE TIME!!!

Answer #18

It doesn’t matter how you dress. It doesn’t matter how you look. All that matters is how you FEEL. If you are emotional and sad. If you are a dreamer and wish for things that give you a heart ache when you think of them because you don’t think it is possible for you to get. THAT is emo. THAT is what we’re about. NOT dressing black. It is not what we display ourselves as because that can always be a mask, covering up ouselves.
