"Hop around and scream off your head like a little girl or go cry in a cold pillow in an empty bed here."

Ok, that is the description of the pop punk/emo forum. I personally passionatly hate those two genre's, but that is a messed up description. One thing playing guitar has taught me is to respect other people's music. That totally bashes it. I understand an opinion, but to use that as the official description of the forum is messed up.

Even though most of the people said that they really don't like emo, but respect it. :rolleyes:

Yeah that's pretty wrong though. It would be like saying for the 80's forum: "Take about all those gay guys with long hair who wore make-up and cross-dressed." Even though there's a negative stereotype, doesn't mean it should be brought up to describe it.

Well, take the Alt and Indie forum for example. It says "Discuss artists in the alternative and indie genres." For Pop-punk/Emo, if you don't want to insult but at the same time don't want to seem too nice, you could just use the same layout and put "Discuss artists in the pop-punk and emo genres."

I'm just suggesting that because we'll probably get a lot of suggestions either highly favoring or strongly bashing the pop-punk/emo genre.

To the dumbass who said I like emo: I don't. But I respect that they're making music, and it shouldn't be bashed like that. Come on, SD, just change it, will you?

You do have a point since I don't even like emo music, and I'm the only one complaining about it.

But try doing this though: On the metal forum describe it as: Jump around on stage like a hippopotomus with ADHD and scream like you just got castrated all while listening to the drummer kick the bass pedals like a maniac in this forum.

Well it's not like it's a religion or an ethnicity. They need to get a life and quit paying attention to that. If you know what emo is, then you really don't need to read the description... for those who don't know what it is, it kind of makes it easy to understand that it's emotional stuff.

keep in mind, this description was suggested by the former mod of the forum and agreed upon by other spectators. so if it wasn't "bashing" back then, why is it now?

not that i think it's ideal, i just don't see how it's humiliating the genre. let's take a look:

"hop around" - so far so good
"scream off your head like a little girl" - translates as, screaming with a high pitch.
"go cry in a cold pillow in an empty bed" - emo is a contraction of emotional; when you look into it's often gut-wrenching lyrics, the description proves to have no intentions of "slamming" the genre.

big whoop.

I just think that it needs to be a non-derogatory description. Everyone on UG either bashes other people or complains when they get bashed. The site doesn't need that kind of spam and the quality of the site would go up if it didn't happen. Therefore, I think that the site should do everything in its power to stop it. In doing so I think the site should get rid of any site sponsored comments that are admittedly poking fun at a genre. I see no problem in this IF every forum had a light-hearted joke under their description. Things I suggest
The Pit- Anything from penis measuring to your mom jokes.
Classic rock- Talk about the power chords and riffs that only we can use and not get bashed for!!
Nu-Metal- Talk about all the Nu-metal riffs that contain only the D5 and D#5 chords!
Etc. etc. I can see that it is a joke to some, but it also offends other people. You would get a huge negative reaction from the classic rock forum if you put up a description similar to mine but whenever someone stands up for the Pop-Punk/Emo forum they just get flamed. Grow up and quit being elitists, please.

I suppose we do have to resect other people's genres. It's what being a good sport is all about. keep this thread up so it'll change, hopefully!

Well, seeing as a lot of people that posted here don't even post in the emo forum, surely it doesn't matter.

I do a fair bit, and it's a joke, jeez, get over it.

Although I do agree that if there was a joke describing the classic rock forum there would be uproar.

Now that I've got you attention, you know that song you posted on here called Bring it On Down (or something like that)? Can you send that to me again? I loved that song..

Haha, that's going back a bit! Erm... I'll try to find it and I'll PM it to you :cheers:

You listen to YOUR music and I'll listen to mine.

I played saxophone in 7th grade, but I still don't like jazz music.

I don't see why we dont just poll the regulars of the pp/emo forum. If they choose to keep it, then leave it and if not then leave it to them to find a fitting desciption.

I think it's a fitting discription. It's very rare to find a person that's a fan of Simple Fan and Blink 182 that isn't some 13 year old girl that screaches constantly and ****. And It's rare to find someone that listens to Fall Out Boy Style emo that doesn't pretend to be depresses, and misunderstood that cries alot. I say keep the description.

How about "Comb your hair over one eye, wear fishnets on your hands, rip holes in your jeans, and apply eyeliner here."

That has a certain ring to it. :D
Agreed!

That or ,"get some mascara and wear girls clothing!"

I support this wholeheartedly.

It's simply opinion and is quite probably based on bands like Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance, which aren't even emo bands in the first place. The media is wrong kids, think for yourselves, and learn about genres before you criticise them, because half the people in this thread have no idea what they're talking about. It should be changed. Emo isn't about wearing girls' jeans, crying about girlfriends or any of the rest of that.

I smell a stereotyping asshat :)

:peace: Seriously though. I know TONS of people who listen to emo music and aren't emo. They just like the music. Just because they like the music doesn't mean that they are depressed, they cut, do stuff for attention, etc. That's just the image that goes with the music. Rock and rap music have certain "images" too, but not everyone fits in those sterotypical looks.

Guys, I listen to "emo" music and I'm not depressed, I don't wear girls jeans, I don't wear make-up, I don't cry, I don't write poetry and I don't hate my life :p: My friends all listen to "emo" as well (I say emo, but I mean they're in the pop-punk / emo scene, ie. they like TBS, Underoath, Cartel etc.) and none of them are depressed... Except one of them, and his dad died recently so he has an excuse.

:haha CoolDudeMorgasm, i don't care that that's a simpsons quote, it was awesome. On topic, I say all these guys saying it's offensive should ask the people of the emo forum if they find it so, and if they have no problem with it, in the immortal words of Bobby McFerrin: "don't worry threadstarter, be happy" (or something to that effect). :D

Woah buddy, whats up with the colour. Teal is not near as cool as your green. Change it back :p: .

Now on topic, ask the people who actually use that forum if its offending. If it is, change it, if its not to them, keep it as it is. Personally i think its funny. And you dont use it, so really it doesnt matter.

Unless of course you fit that description but dont listen to emo music. :p:

By the way, mark me down as one of the people who just doesn't get emo music, but thinks it's bullcrap that this is the description for their thread. How about we change the metal thread to, "Big, fat, hairy, sweaty guys that scream into the microphone, because they can't get laid."?

No, because if you've ever seen a metal band, you'd know 90% of them are skinny good looking guys who gets lots of pussy.

I quite like the description.
