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!

Something that very few people are. The style has mind-fucked every teenager into thinking that they are depressed. I, being manic and having extreme anger issues and emotional outbursts, don't even know if I'm emo. If you seriously need to look this up because of style, you aren't really emo. So there.
FAKE SCENE/EMO KID: Oh, my Gawd, my life sucks so bad. Let's go cut our wrists while listening to Hawthorne Heights on my four thousand dollar stereosystem.

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.

Emo Is Legit! Check it out boiz and gurlz!

GOOD emo bands I listen To:

Snowing,
La dispute,
Pianos Become The Teeth,
Algernon Cadwallader,
Touche Amore,
Loma Prieta,
mewithoutyou,
Weatherbox.

Bad/Fake:

Bring Me The Horizon,
Drop Dead Gorgeous,
Blessthefall,
Brokencyde,
Bullet For My Valentine,
Escape The Fate,
Taking Back Sunday.
Man Pianos Become The Teeth is my favorite Emo Band!

Drop Dead Gorgeous on the other hand...... FAILS.

5. "When you say 'emo' to a musician all they hear is 'your music is so unappealing to normal people, that we will put you into the most abnormal, misused genre in the history of the planet'."

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!

I have a bunch of fun telling random "emo kids" over the interweb that their clique is in fact a lie. It seems as though nobody cares though, because they'd rather wallow in their ignorance and fake depression.
Well, I've decided to just post a blog since I've posted this rant all over the interweb plenty of times.
First of all, "emo" DOES NOT stand for "emotional."
Emo stands for EMOTIVE HARDCORE PUNK.

Emotive hardcore punk is 99% a dead genre.
It lasted from the mid 80s-90s and wasn't very popular.
Ian Mackeye (my hero) was a huge part of both the punk and emo scenes,
and the punk and emo scenes weren't too different.

Emo bands=
rites of spring
embrace
texas is the reason
saetia(violence)
jawbreaker
circle takes the square<(violence)
fugazi
sunny day real estate (post)

(There's plenty more, but you get the point)

Lastly, PEOPLE CAN NOT BE EMO.
IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO BE A PART OF A DEAD MUSIC GENRE, ESPECIALLY IF YOU DON'T EVEN LISTEN TO ANY OF THE MUSIC OF THE GENRE.

Emo came and went, and no, it didn't evolve.
Listen to any of those bands then listen to an mcr song.
They're wayyy different.
Face it, emo is dead.
If you call yourself "emo," you're probably a miseducated scene kid,
and if you call yourself "emo" and you've never been to a show,
you're not a scene kid... you're just a kid dying to fit in.
(I personally don't like scene kids in general)

Just stop slapping labels on yourselves,
and get on with life.
Person 1-Look at those emo kids!
Person 2- Emotive hardcore punk kids?
Person 1- wtf?
