Everyone seems to have different outlooks on what they think emo is or emo's in general. Personally I think your emo if your really emotional. Like if you not affraid to show you emotions. I think its more of a mental thing than a style. Whats do you think?

TS, I disagree. Emo is now a style more than an emotional thing

Emo is a preteen fashion "statement".


It's not a fashion statement, it's a ****in' deathwish.


Emo is a meaningless term nowadays.

Emo is an overly gay style. You don't have to look like a total *** and act like a dipshit to be emotional, I'm sure there was lots of emotional people before the style.

It started as a good genre of music in the late 80's/ 90's, now it doesn't mean anything to do with music, or even emotions, really. It's fashion. That's it.

Whats do I think emo is? A dying trend, nothing more.
Edit: I mean the whole emo scene. Not showing your emotions. That's a trend that I hope never dies.

my view of emo is a person who listens to MCR and AFI who has jet black hair (usually dyed) which covers half their face. they wear all black clothing, while the guys will wear girl's clothes. they will bitch about life all the while they will have loving, tolerant, and rich parents

By today's "standards", emo has come to describe a bunch of pop punk bands that wear their sister's makeup, and '90s post-grunge, grunge/alternative rock, and punk bands that influenced these bands. It is also a style that combines a total clusterfuck of different styles and bizzarre things to make teenagers look like depressed flannel/ironic graphic tee and skinny jean wearing peacocks.

This is not what I believe, though.

Some cities, like Philadelphia still have a really active 'emo' scene, even if all of the bands only have 30 fans.

For the most part, this is what I agree with.

Within the context of the blah music genre, it's pretty easy to pigeonhole the whole fashion element as well. However, I'm tempted to say I'm more "emotional" than a lot of the "emos" I've met.

As the guy in the music shop where I'm working atm :

Why categorize people? If you strive to fit the "Emo" culture, you're a poser idiot. Be whatever you like, without trying hard for it. Also, showing your emotion doesn't make you Emo, it makes you a role-model for rational thinking men, who are usually scared to show feelings so as to avoid being mocked by other men feeling the same way.

Emo is more emotionally-charged punk music. It is also a style of dress, which goes two ways, classic emo and modern emo. I'm guessing you're talking about kids who listen to MCR, FOB and PATD, and don't have a clue why anyone would sell Real Estate for a Sunny Day. Emo these days is dyed black hair, eyeliner, and black clothing. I would have much rather lived my teenage years during the 90's emo scene than this scene now. Emo then wasn't about being Bi and hating yourself, it was about expressing your emotions through melodic hardcore music. Seriously, I occasionally wear an sweater with a Cursive or a SDRE tee. People think I'm skater, so they assume SDRE and Cursive are skate punk, like All time Low or Blink-182.

Rites of Spring are emo (but Fugazi isn't).

Modern "emo" is essentially a watered down, bastardized version of emo, just like '90s "punk revival" bands were watered down, bastardized versions of punk.

Emo is when you take a person who is actually emotional, copy every single thing he does (such as his looks and mannerisms), then rip him off so you can get attention.

"Emo" people used to be the popular, unique people. Now they've gotten even worse than rappers. At least rappers can be colorful and stand out from one another. All emo kids look the same

And yes, it's a style and a fashion, not a music genre. Every genre of music has some form of emotion. If it didn't, then it probably wouldn't be music. Bands that are considered emo should just be called pop punk or screamo (depending on which side its on) so we can get this over with
