Default What the hell is emo?

That's my very thought out question. According to a few people I know, people that are emo:

-Thinks people don't understand them
-Are bisexual
-Cut themselves
and.....
-Listen to songs that about sad people's live are.

I want know what this crap is. I was really disgusted when people said my favorite band, Linkin Park, are (rock)emo which I find completely untrue. I can prove that. But nevermind me, what is emo and where the hell did it come? Because obviously people aren't giving me a clear picture of what it is.

EDIT: If this belongs in a different thread, please put it there.

Emo is the same as emotional as far as I know.

It kinda annoys me too, btw.

wikipedia solves all.

Originally, emo was meant to describe a sub-genre of rock punk bands. I also like Linkin Park, but I'm inclined to believe that they're emo music. Eventually, emo meant the indie rock movement.

Now, however, the word emo has moved to mean a group of people, not just music. Emo people tend to sit around in dark clothing, talking about how horrible their lives are (though more often than not, they're upper-middle class youths with big houses and the like), and generally feeling sorry for themselves.

While I don't believe that Linkin Park themselves are emo, the music they play could be considered to be in the emo genre.

And last I checked, being emo does not mean being bisexual.

How can you prove that its not emo, when you don't know what emo is? ^^

That's the definition I've come to accept for the group of people. As for emo music...eh, just music that focuses on the depressing exclusively. Or at least most of the time. At least that's what people use it to refer to now, from what I've seen/heard. For a more factual definition, look above to Raiden's post.

Think of goth kids without the pseudo satan worship, capes, and white face make-up.

And replace all that with trucker hats, rectangular black rimmed glasses, and kinda darkish (but not black... browns are good) clothing.

But yah, Mannix has it down. Emo is the new goth, as far as the people go. As far as the music, goes, MoM and Wiki have got it spot on.

That quote and this comic should give you a good idea about what "Emo" is. Everyone else here has already said pretty much the exact same thing already, but I wanna post that comic, damnit.
