What is emo? Well most people would consider it punk with emotion is what we would call the classification of a new rising way of feeling your inner self.

Close enough to punk and rock Emo is now know for it's more emotional state of mind. Instead of the anger hard-core way of expressing one-self , Emo (short for emotional) has taken a new tole on the twentith century of expressing yourself. From the music with strong emotion and feeling, unlike hard rock or this is more of an alternative way to let your feeling be known.Emo is not only a classification or a type of music it's also taken over the way one expresses themself by dressing. It includes the tighter fiting pants to the dyed-black or dark hair with it covering your face. The longer hair in front with the spikes in the back is also a more Emo- or emotional look to dressing. Emo is also being known as for the hot emo guys and emo girls kissing. From pictures all on the web to the music videos. Hot emo girl to girl and well as hot emo guy to guy is becoming more and more adventurous and more open concluding; Emo meaning being comfortable with oneself. Its a more direct way of altering the feelings one has without words, just emotion.

Some say music is not a type of music. That it is more of a fashion and a way of feeling, hence the emotional. Just recently people have been considering emo to be a genre or music.. Taking back Sunday is one of the many bands people consider to be emo.

Emo,yes it is short for emotional. But,there is more to emo then hair and looks. Emo is a state of mind. Most people,made them selves appear emo. While in reality,they have to much hope to be emo. Emo is much like goth. But,goth is Darker. Emo is more emotional,harder to fake. Yes,some emos cut themselves,but there is more than that. Emo is one of the hardest things,to explain. People hate emos,b/c they view us as suicidal,cry babies,or just week. That's NOT what emo is. Suicidal yes,at times. But,don't judge me for being emo. It's not what I chose to be. It's just what I am.

Dressing Emo: Boys
Emo boys usually wear a hair style that is shaggy, much like the girls they cover their eyes with bangs. Guys seem to careless for dying their hair black or dark colors. Boys often wear very tight t-shirts, and very tight pants. Some even wear girls' pants. While many just sew their own pants tighter. Especially in the legging area. Dark colors belts, usually black, with studs are very fashionable for boys.

Emo guys are usually youthful guys who dress in tight girls jeans and sweaters and small t-shirts. Emo guys are love their music, and they just don't sit and in the corner and cry all day. Emo boys are sweet and compassionate and every girl wants one. Emo males' usually high school age or college age with a lot of emotions. They tend to grow out of this scene once they hit a certain age. Emo guys seem to be more in contact with their emotions compared to a non-emo guy.

Both boys and girls sport thick rimmed glasses. They both usually wear backpacks covering with many patches and pins from their favorite emo bands. However, not all the patches are bands; they can just be phrases or slogans they like.

Emo people are usually teenagers.

People who are emo usually love music.
People are not all suicidal and they do not slit their wrist!
They may however, be very emotional and sensitive.

I agree with what is said COMPLETELY!
i am an emo myself and I hate how people only see the style(my dark hair, tight pants, hair covering half of my face, black eye liner etc.) and think i cut myself. Emo is way more then that. I am an emo and I am comfortable being me! wooo~

I dont really see 'Taking Back Sunday' as emo, like yh, very 'feeling' music, but not very dark at all. their stuff is lovey-dovey stuff. Parkway Drive, is deathmetal, expresses their views at how a world like this is difficult to understand and sometimes unpredictable, but in a darker way. Lamb Of God is a Groove Metal band which is like death metal without the punk in it. And I dont agree how u said punk is emo. punk is p!nk's 'fuck you' attitude, she aint emo, she just dont give a fuck. Emo music explains how life is too complex and sometimes its so hard they wish it wasnt like this. (this does not mean they want to kill themselves, even though said in many songs, just as emotive language).
