EMO is short for emotional. The origins of EMO are unknown but it began with music in the 1980s. Many of the bands were perceived to be producing EMO music. The idea of EMO was then extended to films, fashion, books and other symbols of popular culture.
EMO music is a cross between punk rock and soul. Bands were in the quest of infusing depth into their music while retaining its popular appeal. EMO clothing refers to a certain amount of cognitive dissonance in the style. Males wear tight pants, small t-shirts and even some make-up. Dark glasses are common to the get-up of both the sexes. Lance Armstrong's 'Livestrong' band would have been very popular with the EMO crowd because of the dissonance it provides between the optimistic message and pessimistic wearer. The yellow color would clinch it though. Certain brands such as Adidas track suits and Converse All Star shoes have been popular with the EMO crowd.
Emo stands for emotional. You may here that emos cut themselves. Most don't.
Emo is emotional it is when kids like me get so upset they cut their rists under ribs and back no one under stands us and why we do what we do
I hear a lot people say stuff about emo bad things so what we are the same so treat other like you want to be treated. And they people that think that they are all alone and depress . I was like that for 4 months and I feel sad all the time for no reason and some reason and feel like no one care about me .
Being emo is just short for being very emotional yes I know quiet a lot of emo people and I really hate the title! I cut my self but I really don't find it something to be amusing to others I chose what I chose. I really don't like my life a whole lot but I deal with it and somethimes my life is really f*cked up or it can be just right, but cutting is a distraction that takes my mind off of things that are going wrong... Some of my friends are suicidle but I don't find anything wrong with being emo.. So emo is pretty much just overdosing and cuting ureself and hurting ureself physicly and emotinonally .... Some people don't understade why... They think its stupid... But thats just an opinon to me... And I guess you can say typicaly we have side bangs and are quiet... But whatch out for scene there just posers.... I put on a mask for my prepy friends and just go with the flow I have distincted personalitys thats all....
Its not gay! Its what my sister's bf is. Weird.
I am emotional and wear dark clothes.. Even my favorite colors are dark.
Emo is short for emotional. They usually have hair covering one of their eyes, they are also usually pretty quiet & mysterious.
Emo is just ppl who are going thru depressing times and they are just normal ppl. And emo isn't gay for the tard who said that
Everyone is completely wrong. Emo is a style.. The skinny jeans, band tshirts, vans, black hair normally spiked. Its also a genre of music. Emo is technically short for emotional, yes, but thats not what it means. We are emotional at times.. But still.. We usually cut our wrists when we get depressed and are suicidal... But once you get to know us, were pretty cool I ges :) oh btw EMO IS NOT SCENE.
