Am I the only one who is really starting to get bugged by this. Everytime anyone ever gets depressed or upset about something everyone is always like "Stop being an emo fag!" Or if a song has any negative emotions in it (Like being suicidal or breaking up with a girl) is emo. (I guess being an Indie fan is why that last one really bugs me ) Seriously sadness is a human emotion. IT DOES NOT MAKE YOU EMO!

BTW emo sucks.

CHEER UP EMO!!!

Nah jk, yeah it gets on my nerves too sometimes, but there's being genuinely upset about something and then theres being a poseur.

Actually having emotions does make you emo, because emo is an abbreviation for emotional, they aren't different things.

OMG WHO WOULD HAVE KNOWN!??!?

Agreed. Yeah, people who try to be emo piss me off, but people who are genuinely upset don't deserve to be called an emo fag. That is like "The thing" in our school. Seriously being an Emo hater is nearly as cliche as being an emo now. THAT'S NOT FAIR! I WAS HATING EMO BEFORE IT WAS COOL TO HATE IT!!!!!!!!

I EAT EMOS FOR BREAKFAST.

nah jk.
but for real.
if all you do is complain and cry, people call u an emo because you need to stfu and start doing something.
btw indie fans wear colorful shirts, u wont be called an emo if u wear colors.
and black isnt a color.
i cant think of a good sig....

Anyway, we have enough of these threads. Its actually quite suprising how many threads we have, compared to how many people on UG actually CARE about this kinda stuff. Doesn't make sense really...

#23
I try to tell people this in RL and online on a daily basis. Music is based on emotions. Being emotional isn't emo.

i soo fu<ck>ing sick of this "EMO" thing, you cant call a person emo, everyone is emotional, its us being ****ing human beings for god sakes, it whats makes us the advanced life form that we are.

This whole EMO thing is bull ****, EMO is a type of music, and that music is nothing like hawthorne heights or aiden or my chemical romance, or anything u consider emo.

Emo was a type of music that was most prominent during the early/mid 90's, and it had nothing to do with wearing black clothes or slitting ur wrists. The emo music was about trying to convey the different emotions that the band and singer was playing about,
certain situations in their lives which they tried to convey through their music. ANY EMOTION< not just sad and depresed, although that hardly ever came up.

TRUE EMO and bands include, at the drive-in <mostly their early stuff>, Drive Like Jehu, Sunny Day Realestate, Murder City Devils, Fugazi.

the record acrobatic tenement album by at the drive-in is a great example. they were still a young band, not long out of high school, and they had been touring non stop previous for their first two eps.

So the album has songs about leaving your friends and family and lives behind in order to pursue their love of music,

going through all those years of school and how tough it was in the town they lived in and how mush of a relief it was to finish, how on two all all your world is is what is inside tht tour van, and that the 4 ppl around you are the only people u know and the only ppl u can rely on. there is also songs about them being racially outcast and also a song about their friend and mentor that commited suicide off a bridge, and how that effected the band.

So the album is filled with lots of diffeent of emotions and feelings that the band experienced during that time, which is exactly what an emo record should be. emo is not a type of person and is has nothing to do with being down or wearing dark make up, and the fact that so many bands today are called emo just for those reasons really piss me off. they are not emo, and they dont make emo music. end of ****ing story. i wish this emo fad would go the **** away because all you dumb ****s obviously have no ****ing idea of what emo is. **** you all

Are you all forgetting emo does not mean emotional amymore? It's like saying ghetto still means a wall section of a city with a high concentration of a certain ethnicity!

Definitions change over time. Deal with it.


Other examples of definitions changing include:
Sick
wicked
****
bomb
tail

I thought it was Emotive Hardcore, but what do I know?
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools
