Do you think they're the same?
calm down people
just asking opinions
I knwo their not
here's what I dug up on Emo
From my recourses supposedly an Emo was originally just a slang word used to describe some bands that got emotional, originally fans of Fugazi, a post punk band, in mid 1980's. It later became a sub-genre. Most found it offensive & disliked being labeled Emo. The original Emo is what is now modern day screamo, there were 3 waves. I believe the second wave some how led to the third wave which is modern day. It was basically when new music was cropped under the labile Emo. It was only just recently that clothes, style, & such was applied to it. The style of Emo is most commonly tight jeans(boys & girls alike, it's not on common for men to wear girl jeans in this style), long bangs, or fringe, brushed to the side, hair died black. Thick glasses are also common, or was originally common in the style as well as plad shirts & such. The style is less evolved from post punk than Goth in short I guess one could say. Also, during the third wave of Emo it became common for people to slit their selves to "fit in". How that works out I don't know. Note: not all Emo's slit themselves. & no, it is not a subculture, However, there is supposedly a movement in the process of making it a subculture, don't think it'll work out, & to be honest I kind of hope it doesn't. In my honest opinion Emo is not based on a solid foundation enough to say what exactly is & is not emo, specially when it comes to terms of music. The basis of emo has been changed twice except for the one basic Emo is Emotional. But when you think of it, how can one not be emotional when it comes to their music? Look at Cradle of Fith-their Dooms Metal, 69 Eyes- Romanti Goth, Amy Lee- Plasti Goth, & a lot other musicians. The only ones called Emo are the ones who dress the part-& as I stated, it was only just recently that the style was added to the genre, only a few years.
No way in F*CKING HELL do I think they're the same
no not really...well kind of. goth and emo are both breaks off of punk. emo is generally tight jeans (that can really be of any colour) and a band top. goth is a whole range of things like buckled platform boots, black lipstick or blood red lipstick. but theres also gothic lolita (think mana), cyber goth ( which is very popular in japan in whick cybers wear fluro OTT clothes) alternative goth (think emilie autumn), vampire goths, medeival style goths (dresses in medeival style clothing). emos arent a huge range like goths and really only stick to one style of dressing. then thre are the scene kids that have a vague sort of emo hair but are obsessed with hello kitty, cartoons, dinosaurs etc and are all over myspace.
ok guys...big diff...im emo I should know...there is a lil bit of the same traights...
goth dont always wear black man
emos always wear funky rainbowlishious colors
goths hate life
emos hate life
goths hate people
emos hate themselves
goth put up with life
emos want to die
goth dont cut
emos in the other hand CUT OFTENLY!!!
but yea if a goth got in an argument w/ a emo they would
end up comin out sickin their dick...NO OFFENSE...
NOW BACK TO MY OWN BUISNESS...BYE
no, there not
there 2 completely different genres but emo is a little bit newer than goth, so theyve taken parts and styles from it
theyve also taken bit from the "scene" genre
everyone borrows from everyone else
but even now, there are different kinds of emo styles and stuff
but no there not and will never be the same.
HE*L NO!!! I cannot belive you asked that question!! holy Sh*t dude! emos are just emotional who have a lot of problems and people need to learn that we just want to be left alone and all thoose goths out there power to you but if emos and goths were in a fight the goths would SUCK OUR RAINBOWS!!! frekka frekka WORD!
well, emo is short for emotional. and gothics are emotional. but they keep it inside so thats why they cut themselves and wear black stuff. sooo...emo is the definition of gothics. but some people say "hey that guy's emo". so yes. emo and goth is the same. people are going to learn that.
okay dontblamedaem0 in my world gothics and emos are the same. they are both depressed over life and they hate themselves & people. people have diff opinions about if they are the same. nobody is wrong. and yes, I know emo is a type of music. but its turning in to a type of person.
okay ummm...lilmizkutie you dont know what your talking about Emo IS short for Emotinal but it is also a type of music...emos cut goths complain...emos hate themselves...goths are over dramatic and hates the world HOW IN THE F*** IS THAT ANYWHERE THE SAME???!!?!?!???!?
They're not the same. Emo's a genre of music...but its been turned into a "lifestyle"
as far as goth...they're different types of goth. Depends on whether you're talking like that old-fashioned, elegant victorian goth or the morbid skulls and chains goth...?
um...xxxmeezexxx, goths don't hate life, or people. Emo's do not wear "funky/rainbowlicious" ( that isn't even a word!!!) clothes. They are not the same!!
I HATE WHEN PEOPLE ASK QUESTIONS LIKE THIS. (AND WHEN PEOPLE GIVE STUPID ANSWERS!!!)
I would say I'm a emo/scene kid. Sorta a hippie. But schyeah, goths and emos are not the same and goth kids don't really cut themselves. And you can be emo without being a cutter.
ok dontblamedaem0 you r rite but what does suck our rainbows mean...?
&& just 2 let everybody no that just because you cut urself doesnt make you emo! btw
Emo is supposed to be a genre of music but people have turned it into a style which I think is inspired by the Gothic style. Labels are overrated though.
there close but not close at the same time
emo is hateing yourself
goth is hating the world
thats main difference
dont hate on either
they're worlds apart
I see you put think so I"m asuming you know & are just curios about other people's opinions
nah. goths hate the world and emos hate themselves.
hi guys I just felt like writting heehee
I do believe they are not
yah...they`re both gay
not at all
