The depression rate of teenagers and even young adults has gone out the roof since the climax of Emo in American culture. It bothers me how it's cool to be sad all the time and complain and cut yourself. I give therapy for free online and it's sad how many kids have addictions because of the superficial sadness the media shows. So what I really came here to ask, was do you think the majority of emo-listeners are:

a) already sad or just emotionall people who like listening to music that speaks to them
or
b) preps or regular kids who thought it was cool
or something else?

c) Fucking retards who listen to shitty wannabe emo bands.

thats a common known fact about todays kids in the last 5 years. kids were just happier in the 80's and 90's.

mostly because people think its cool, which is really dumb. emo guys are boring they never have like, fun. they sit in a dark room and cry, not attractive. but it is really sad that depression is a trend.

Most of the avid Emo listeners, who listen to actual Emo don't fit the stereotype. It's HH/Aiden/MCR fans who feel that they need to do all the stereotypical stuff.

And people usualy confuse the suicidal emo kids with scenesters, which is the gayest trend going.

Emokids deffinately think they are being different than other people but really they are just following a trend. I hate seeing people who personally make themselves look as ugly as ****.

People who think all people who listen to emo are depressed are stupid. That was a poorly written sentence, and my input for the day.
I'm a person.

WHy do emo kids spend half an hour trying to make their hair look like they just got out of bed when they could just get out of bed?

This thread is pissing me off. Emo is not all about crying and being depressed. If you go back to the roots *cough*Fugazi*cough* then you'll find that emo was more of a movement of politics and uprising aimed at a younger sort of audience. Emo has recently changed since then, into a trend for teenagers/preteens thinking that having a serious medical condition is cool. Emo has been given a bad name by bands like MCR, Aiden, and the like. Most of these bands who say, "oh, I'm so depressed, listen to my music, it's so thoughtful and such an amazing reflection of my anguished soul" are faking it just for popularity. I listen to some emo and I am not depressed, suicidal, a ****ing retard, and I do not think it's cool to do. I just like some of the music.
Call me Steve. All the cool kids are doin it.
