These people at school keep calling me emo because i listen to heavy metal like Iron Maiden, slayer and other Genre-Bands like A7x. Are there any people that can help me come up with reasons with how heavy metal is NOT emo? sorry if you dont understand me..

I can tell you why A7X isn't metal...

You're losing interest because you're simply not gay enough. Which leads me to believe you aren't cut out for metal.

Sorry to break it to ya, but A7X is listened to by mostly "emo scene" kids. In other words, it's not heavy metal. It's generic metalcore.

A7X isn't metal, they are hard rock.
Also, tell them emo is for pussies and metal is for real men.

He definitely did. It went from "like A7x" to "like Iron Maiden and other genre bands like A7x" to "like Iron Maiden, slayer, and other genre-bands..."

just walk around singing slayer lyrics instead of A7X lyrics. peoples opinions will change.


No, because people think that anything dark is emo.

Just sing "kitty, kitty cats, kitty, kitty cats..."

Listen to Cannibal Corpse, Amon Amarth and Necrophagist.....and Nile too I guess, I don't care for them but they're popular among the bigger Death Metal fans......If they call those Emo then proceed to stab them in the face with a soldering iron....

Haha, if you've chosen to identify yourself with a social group and can't defend your choice by yourself you should re-evaluate your life, sad as that fact may be.

Metal isn't emo because it actually takes talent to produce, and has been around longer than the late 90s. And Iron Maiden = emo? Wtf, do you go to school with complete f*cking idiots?

Emo stereotypes include black hair with skinnies and tight black shirts with lip and eyebrow piercings, so it isn't much wonder why Avenged Sevenfold leads to your "emoness". But yeah, there aren't very many connects from Maiden and Slayer to emo, so I can't really understand why they call you emo for that, but just block them out.

While A7X aren't an emo band, they're involved in that kind of scene, so you're trapped there.
#38
I have actually never met a true emo person in my entire life. Are they just an urban legend or do they actually exist? Or does emo just mean a stereotypical poser of a short lived generation from the past?

I've met emo kids, there are plenty where I am from and I usually see them at social gatherings like local gigs or malls.

Generally, they just look like the vocalists of their favourite bands, their best friends are either girls or gay and they wear converse shoes.

That is your standard emo, but of course there are some that go more all out than others and some are the product of different hybrids of genre-blending.
