Emo is a genre of music, also known as "Emotive Hardcore", which was created in the 80s by a band who uplifted it all known as Rites of spring. Emo is a powerful and passionate style of genre that features powerful musical build ups, Vocalists screaming passionately, and Very Instrumental.

Emo is NOT in anyway linked to how a person dresses or looks like, Emotions, or the action of one cutting themselves.

Emos have been stereotypicalized as ppl that cut themselves. If u took a moment to actually see how these "emos" are feeling then maybe u would understand why they cut if they do. Some ppl might do it but this does not make them "emos".

Music wise, "emos" are seen to only listen to heavy metal and stuff like that. Have u ever thought that maybe they just like this music?? No. Because of all stereotypes that have been made, ppl that like this music immediately fall into the "emo" category.

These "emos" just dress like they do because they maybe want to stick out and not go with the crowd. This is perfectly fine to understand if u could be open minded but u r just so closed off in your little fantasy label-ridden world that u cant take a chance to think of these reasons.

So in future before u class anyone as an "emo" because they cut and/or like heavy music n wear dark clothes, at least get ur facts straight.

If someone classes themselves as an "emo" then its obviously because they are sick of being talked about and labelled that they have chosen to believe this as truth. At least have a bit of thought about these "emos" because theyre still ppl with feelings n stuff so at least have a thought about how u could be affecting them.

Some ppl go through a lot of shit in their lives and need ways to get it out. Dont judge them on how they do this, just go with it n try n actually help them.
Q:Oh he's such an emo
V:Naah.Maybe he's got some shit going on
Q:As if mann. Thatll be his excuse.If u look at his arms i bet theyll be cut
V:Gee mann.You shouldnt just judge ppl on idiotic stereotypes
Q:Whatever dude

A word that has been tortured and mutiated by disgusting and repulsive bands like Blessthefall, Drop Dead Gorgeous, And Bring Me The Horizon.

Emo does not stand for some kid that cuts himself or dresses like a fag with black straightened hair and skinny jeans.

Emo originally started out as a genre of music where bands put passion and EMOtion into their pieces of art. Wait a sec? they put what? -emo-tion, EMOTION. that is what it stands for.

Emo stands for a genre of music where lyrics and music are emotional.

Bands like,
Snowing,

Algernon Cadwallader
and La Dispute.

Listen to them guys, they are good jams with alot of emotion into them.

So dont kill the word emo with your adolecent scene bullshit. BMTH sucks, plain and simple. Emo kids, arent "EMO" kids, they are just kids dressing like fags.

Emo = Emotional genre of music.
Right:

Person1- Man La disputes genre of style is emo!

Person2-I listened to them and they are actually so emotional! the lyrics are powerful!

Wrong:

Person1 -Man I love emo bands like bmth!
Person2- I know!! Oli Sykes is so emo! its HOT!

When a kid, whose life is relatively good, acts like he hates himself for attention. Some of these little bitches cut themselves because they want someone to talk to them about their problems, but then they act like they don't know what you're talking about. Emos are so caught up in their little pathetic act that they think that their being different from everyone, when in reality they are joining an even bigger phenomenon. Can be identified by a shit load of eyeliner, black clothing, black nail polish, and listening to shitty music. Emos are becoming to the 2000s what grunge was to the 90s, and what hair bands were to the 80s.
My friend just became an emo, he used to be such a happy person but, ever since he started listening to My Chemical Romance, all he does is cut himself.

A lifestyle which seems to have been blown out of proportion. Goth is not emo. Emo is not goth. Emos have usually a dark outlook on life, and just because someone dresses in all black does NOT make them emo. People tend to judge emos unfairly.
Man, he looks like an emo.

Look at that sexy emo hair!

Noun
There are 2 possible variations of this word.

1. A person who due to circumstances, more often than not out of his control, is in a depressed state wherein the person can be happy and outgoing one moment to depressed and distant the next. Doesnt always have to dress in dark colors or have dark hair but is sometimes a sterotypical characteristic than may or may not be true in said case.

2. A person who actually has little wrong with their life but tells everyone they do as to attract attention. It is thought that by doing this they may be 'cool' or 'in' but in reality is not being who they are and is closely related to 'scene'
1. "Hey guys, you wanta hang after school today?"
After school
"Sorry guys, i just cant hang out right now... i dont even want to talk to anyone."

2. "When i go to this new school i think im gonna change my look. I hear 'emo' is popular there so ill stop by the store and get some hair dye and dark clothes"
