Were just people right!!??
The term "Emo" is used as counterculture; it is an abreviation of the word "emotional". Emo it's defining not only an attitude, but also a fashion that are coming from emocore (emo music). Emocore is a combination between hardcore and punk music which was very popular in Washington DC in the late 80's. The emo culture continued to develop between '90 and '00, reaching the height of its popularity today.
Now more of the truth. I'm going to make this as easy to understand as possible.
Now I'm all for evolution, I believe in evolution after all! Even in terms of words; gay use to mean "happy" now it can either mean, "stupid", "lame" or it's current proper use "homosexual."
However, the term emo is very different. If you claim "emo" were to mean "emotional" it then becomes an all encompassing word, it becomes extremely vague and it has no limit as to what it can and will describe. This is an issue because the term is suppose to (and believed to by the people who use it) to describe one specific thing, when it fact it does the complete opposite. Emo when wrongfully used as "emotional" describes every living thing, every song, every word, every breath, every statement. Why you ask? Because what as no emotion is dead.
Emo was created as a shortened term to describe a specific thing, in this case "emotive hardcore" an off shoot of hardcore punk from the mid 80's. This genre is still alive today, although very obscure and unknown to most. Those who like to shout they're 'emo' usually never heard of any other band than fall out boy.
What many of you are now doing are displaying a vast amount of laziness and gullibility. Why are you wrongfully using the term emo to describe "scene", "fashion core" and sappy mainstream rock? Think before you speak, stop taking short cuts, and stop being the media's b!tch.
Bottom line :
Emos && scene && Goths ARE POSERS (:
I think people choose to be "emo" like a person chooses to be preppy same difference. You hang out with people you relate to, that wear/ listen to the music that appeals to you. No big deal shouldnt be an issue but it is because the world is full of people who feel the need to judge and critisize others and the rest of the world is full of the followers who go along with it. As for me I have friends who are emo, preppy, goth, hip hop and what ever other high school term you want to label people as. They are not posers they are being true to themselves for how they feel and what they are into right now.
I think people like to judge other people, like chickens they peck at the "flawed" chicken till they kill it. So whatever the dominate fad is they are always going to put down the minority.
because everyone labels people and they dont see them for who they really r. I hate it when people are labeled. the other day I almost beat the ss*it out of someone because they were calling one of my friends emo. emos are considered to be dark mean evil and suicidle. I dont think that is true. no one shpould be labeled. so ignore all of them they just think theyre better then everyone else
HAHA! Emos aren't considered to be "dark, mean, evil and suicidal"!
They're considered to be pathetic little kids who like to think themselves "dark, mean, evil and suicidal" when in actual fact they dress like shite, their music is more corporate than dance and R&B and have no personality whatsoever.
I dont know why anyone would want to label themselves as any part of a group I guess they aren't interesting enough to be a individual they need to be a member of something, kinda pathetic
because everyone wants to be in a group with their friends and they listen to a specific music SCREEEAAAMOOO
because all of you so called "emo" kids are just crying for attention. just like this question.
Because they like to talk about themselves so much...
Hey...look at me I'm EMO!!
im not sure I think its because they dare to be different, its cool. (I think)
what about the people that label themselves as emo though
Your question makes no sense.
