There are too many stereotypical definitions for an emo on Urban Dictionary, so I'm going to try to clear this up for those who don't know what they're talking about. Emo stands for "emotionally challenged", yes, but that's not a synonym for "melodramatic, cutting, freaks who over dramatize everything", because not every single emo on the planet is like that. Usually, the over dramatic ones are the fake ones trying to get attention from everyone.

Emo people are usually those who have very difficult lives at home or in general, constantly facing problems that effect them emotionally, and drive them into a self panic. They usually think there's nothing really anyone can do for them, they feel very alone in the world. Its true, nobody knows just how much they go through in a day, with people criticizing, bashing, and labeling them alone. Most people are too dim or self absored to see through their thick skull and realize the pain these people go through everyday.

When people start shooting off their mouth about how emos are black dressing, cutting, eye-liner wearing, melodramatic, freaks, that's only because it's what society has labeled them as. And maybe, they do wear eyeliner or dress in all black, but does that give you the right to bash them? Does that make them any less of a person? All they need is for you to walk up to them and give them a compliment and maybe even become friends. Because, if you do that, you could really really realllly make that persons day. Emos are NOT a frkn subculture, so STOP saying that, they're humans like you and me.
Random Dumbass: "Hey, look at the freakish emo over there, bet he just finished cutting himself, the dumb shit!"

Random Guy: "DUDE! Wtf is your problem? He actually looks like a pretty nice guy. I think we all know who the REAL dumbass is..."

a kid who dresses a certain way (tighter clothing) and is usually happy and fun to be around. this is the real emo. the fake emo is the one who is the child of loaded parents and then cuts the hell out of themselves thinkin their life is so bad while listening to the pink spiders on their 30 gig Ipod and looking at the credit card their daddy just bought them.
FAKE: Im so emo. Let me grab my razor and my credit card and ill go buy myself an ipod.

REAL: *turns on the radio* hey its MCR!! *turns to friend and says* hey lets dance and have some fun, eh? *they proceed to dance and have ALOT of fun*

A terribly misconstrued and misused word. In contemporary culture it is utilized as a broad term to describe a multitude of children and teenagers who straighten their hair, have their hair in their face, perhaps dye it black, and wear tight clothing. Unfortunately this is completely inaccurate. Actual "emo" music existed in the late 80's and was a subgenre of hardcore punk rock, after all, "emo" is a shortening of "Emotional hardcore punk rock". The people in early emo bands dressed like regular people, everyday guys/girls who just played music that they enjoyed. Sadly, since the formulation and ongoing existence of Hot Topic, the term emo has been incorrectly characterized for a little more than a decade. You have to wonder how the original bands feel about the slandering and mass misunderstanding and misuse of their originality with those of the unoriginal.
Just search Cap'n Jazz to listen to actual emo music.

The most overused word in the english language.
Person 1: You don't listen to pop? Ewwwww, you're so emo
Person 2: I know dude, c'mon, who DOESN'T want to listen to songs about sex, drugs, smoking, and being violent?
Me: You two need to be put behind bars.

Most emos are fake, poseur losers. Often hang out with groups of other 'emos'. May or may not be homosexual. Wear skinny jeans and guyliner. Whine about life, write dark poems on LiveJournal, and cut themselves. It is scarce you will ever see a real emo. Youtube search 'The Emo Song', to learn more about stereotypical/poser emos.
I'm an emo kid, non-comforming as can be. You'd be non-conforming too if you looked just like me. I have dye in my hair and makeup on my face, I'm almost emo enough to start shaving my legs.


...Cause our dudes look like chicks, our chicks look like dykes, because emo. Is one step. Below transvestite!

Teenagers who upload their photographs to this page with comments like "OMG I'm so EMOOOOOO", without realising the whole point of this page is to insult them.
