...When people call you emo for a dumb reason?

For example, i was wearing my Number of the beast: Iron Maiden shirt and people start calling me emo.......... I'm 100% positive that Iron Maiden isn't emo at all, They are heavy Metal

i wore a black shirt, and a fat goth girl kalled me emo. wtf?
You are not your job.
You're not how much money you have in the bank.
You're not the car you drive.
You're not the contents of your wallet.
You're not your fucking khakis.
You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.

People are close-minded. You have to realize that the majority of people only listen to the music put in front of them (a.k.a. MTV and Top 40), so they've probably never even heard of Iron Maiden. And since "Emo" has become a derrogative term, the phrase is thrown around loosely, and these people that have essentially no knowledge of genres other than what's popular, they group everything else as "Emo". Especially if it's a black shirt. Just because they're ridiculous.

Most of the girls I hang out with are the annoying Laguna Beach bitches, so I know how they think.

I got called emo because I'm growing my hair out, it was long and I cut it for my girlfriend and realized it was a HUGE mistake so its getting long, and it looks emo now but I'm into metal, classic rock, and psychedellic music so I don't get it. I've never worn an emo band shirt. I think most people assume long-er than normal guy hair/died wierd color hair + any black shirt+skate shoes/converses=Emo.

yeah, i'm naturally a shy person, but the minute I wear a black shirt (by coincidence) I shift from just shy to emo. But I'm not emo. I don't even have long hair. Meh!

hahaha. If it was solely based on lyrics, I'm sure everyone would call Weezer an emo band.

But it's so damn catchy..

yeah Iron Maiden aren't emo, any who knows rock knows that,my point being these people don't know rock so why should you care what they say.

I like listening to pop-punk so that, apparently, makes me emo

Ask someone what emo is and they'll say "you know people with... black hair, who cut themselves, cry all the time". People are idiots.

I think you should pretend you've never heard the word before, and ask for a deffinition, and when they reply, with what ever answer they have in there head, just say, hmmmm well i guess i;m not emo then.
#36
hahah thats actuly a really good idea...any way the kids who call me emo arent worth it there the kind that need someone to pick on so they can make converstation and stay cool.
