Oh yes I remember those treacherous times of black flippy hair, stretched ears, and metalcore/post-hardcore music, and of course you can't forget the extremely tight clothes. Those were scary times indeed now that I look back. I still see a lot of scene/emo kids everywhere. Hopefully someday that phase will be abolished, I was an emo for 3 or 4 years I think and somewhere down the line I slowly started evolving into a Metalhead and can now say I have been fully evolved for 2 years.

Remember kids Metal is like an apple, everything is good except for the core.

Hmm. I've heard it put like, "Emos want to kill themselves, Goths want to kill everyone else. " Emos can range from some kid trying to appear sensitive to pick up girls then failing due to their being emo to the true Borderline. And they typically are far beyond the normal drama queens. Goths can range from some kid trying to maintain a black aura to Eric Harris. When the two mate(d) with /rape(d) one another, it is the CR phenom you can see today, and it manifests in horrid fuquing abominations you dared not dream about in childhood but is art.

Thankfully I was old enough for this to not be noticeable.

I've never felt the need to participate in something because it's popular, however this emo thing was a particularly alien concept to me. I seriously wondered (and kind of still do wonder) why anyone would do any of the things that would cause someone to label them emo. I didn't really associate very much with emos, but then again, I didn't really associate with much of anyone outside of my small circle of friends either.

Well.. I was definitely around when it started up and became a thing. The problem for me was that all of my friends were all getting into it... and I have extremely curly hair. SO I felt kinda left out, so what did I do? I became an emo kid with them.

For like two months, and then I was like "screw this" because it just took way too much time and effort for me to get ready for school everyday.

Emo/goth/grunge came from the rock star popularity of the wrestling business that happened during the late 90s. It was edgier back then and the FCC was not involved that much.

I don't know, but I was kind of an emo kid.
Thirteen year old me wore lots of black, drippy eyeliner, listened to screamy music, and often strutted around proclaiming how much she didn't care and flaunting her misanthropy

Emo was the thing until the second semester of my junior year in college. I was a bit of a scene girl.

I was emo in 6th-beginning of 9th grade year.

But I always depressed since I was seven years old.
That's when those hormones kicked in.

I think that happens at pretty much every high school I see. I think of it as more of a fashion preference. It still goes on. Just only a selected few follow that trend. I always got the vibe that they would start some kind of trouble. Or just avoided them since they gave off some dangerous vibe.

Once upon a time I had a fringe that was borderline scene, I was like 13 and I just wanted a side fringe at the time because it looked nice on some celebrity. I think almost every teen has gone through a "noone understands me" phase - be it that preppy bimbo, or that brooding emo.

I've never listened to screamo though. I've listened to classic rock/metal (and lately I've delved into the many sub-genres) all my life, but "screamo" and said genres are worlds apart.

These days there are no signs of a fringe to be found. I keep my hair centre-parted and black. My style would probably lean towards alternative in terms of makeup and wardrobe choices, but not to an over-the-top extent.
