OK, so heres the deal. I was at school a few days ago (suprisingly) wearing a denim jacket with patches, pins, and the like on it along with my mohawk and this girl looks at me, then leans over to my best friend and asks "does he listen to screaming music", and that really got me to thinking. Has anyone else noticed that many emo trends come from punk? and at least for my yuppie town thats seeming to ruin it for the masses uneducated in punk. What do you guys think?

A lot of punk kids start out that way and then calm down about it later... there's really no need to be rude about it.

and Spazz... I don't want to be too quick to pass judgment, but I'm assuming you haven't been into punk that long. You'll learn to deal with the fact that pretty much nobody knows what punk music is actually like. They all assume every punk band just screams at the top of their lungs about anarchy. It has nothing to do with emo.

Also, skipping school doesn't make you punk or cool or rebellious or free... it makes you uneducated and useless. It doesn't matter how many things you want to change if you don't have the basic knowledge of how the world works. I've had too many friends drop out of high school and end up 23 and living with their parents working some manual labor job 60 hours a week with nothing to show for their lives.

Thanks for letting us all know to ignore you by prefacing your statement by stating that Sex Pistols invented punk.

First off Emo came from Punk. Second, just cause she said screaming music doesnt mean she's talking about emo. A lot of punk has "screaming" vocals...

And no emo isnt ruining punk.

While real emo is amazing ( for real ), the people you are speaking of are called Elitists and you should use your ignorant metalhead moshing skills on them.

I can be a bit of an emo elitist at times, I admit, but I'm working on it. Real emo is an amazing genre of music, that I love. Not to look superior or non ignorant, but just because I love it. I love the emotion bleeding right through the music, it's such great music. I don't care if you don't like it though, I just don't like when people ignorantly bash it.

Thats the smartest thing Ive heard, ever. No sarcasm.

they would have been called 2nd wave emo. which was really punk with idk the deeper, pop punk of the early 90s. Fugazi and others would be considered as too, but in the late 90s the 3rd wave began where pathetic, poprock/popalternative/indie bands like Weezer and Jimmy Eat World came in wearing somewhat of plaid, trendier clothing, and trying to look like nerds. and now emo is used as a clothing statement and really listen to hardcore, sceamo, metal and all that other garbage. and think theyre totally badasses by morons, 'skaters', and... just everyone. 2rd wave, 3rd wave, and the fashion are all almost completely different.

and to TS, dont wear mohawks, fashion shouldnt have to show that your just a tyte, mondo, hard to the core, sick to the bone, 'punk rocker', without a cause.. no
