I'm glad to hear that Karson! Congratulations!
The emo's at my school listen to their....Whhaa? What was that? Can't hear your music! Is anyone even singing??!?
( sorry, Bounty Hunter Kaiza, if I offended you. )
They all huddle close and listen to their.... dark music and smirk and talk about stuff I can't hear. It's annoying! It's like, I WANT TO KNOW! I heard one of them brought ciggerates in to school.
Ah yes the emo music I happen to like a lot of it actually..... i guess you could say i was an orginal emo kid back in high school.
I consider myself something of an expert at my old age...lol
I take a lot of my own personal style and influences from punk, goth, and emo among other genres. Emo and goth don't make you "bad" o r "evil" or "messed up" its just a personal style that is used as expression. As it was for "Rock n roll" in the 50's, "Folk" in the 60's, "disco" and "Rock" in the 70's, "punk" and "metal" in the 80's, and "Grunge" and "alt-rock" in the 90's, it was a way for the younger generation to rebel against the "screwed up" society that just didnt understand them...and to do it under a banner of brelonging and Brotherhood.
We all go through it in our lives. Nowadays its the resurgence of Goth, and the Emo movement that calls out for attention....unfortunately the younger one's are ill equipped to deal with all the "mess" left by our predessesors, and they're equally if not moreso, ill equipped to understand the source of our youth's anger.
It's up to those of us who do understand to extend ourselves as anchors and beacons to guide our tortured youth to safety in these increasingly harsh times.
Spread the love...

I Like Goths better than Emo's. Dunno why.
I happen to love ONE particular Gothic Band.
Sisters of Mercy.
It does not mean I am, but that's just to let you know.
Emo's have actually stolen a lot of the Goth stuff.
black nail varnish
ciggerates ( because they're depressed )
Black, Dark band clothes and jeans, etc........
There's one emo song, I kinda liked when I played Guitar Hero III.
Before I forget.

That's a shame.

The Scot cares about his people you know.
' Aye! he does.........
Could some one close this topic? I am done with it.
He is better know, but still pray thanks
I'm glad he's better.
I know you'd like to close this...but I thought I'd drop some knowledge about the "Emo" culture
It isn't "cutting yourself" its more a movement, best defined by Wikkipedia as:
"Emo (pronounced /ˈiːmoʊ/) is a style of rock music which describes several independent variations of music with common stylistic roots. As such, use of the term has been the subject of much debate. In the mid-1980s, the term emo described a subgenre of hardcore punk which originated in the Washington, D.C. music scene. In later years, the term emocore, short for "emotional hardcore", was also used to describe the emotional performances of bands in the Washington, D.C. scene and some of the offshoot regional scenes such as Rites of Spring, Embrace, One Last Wish, Beefeater, Gray Matter, Fire Party, and later, Moss Icon. (In more recent years, the term "emotive hardcore" entered the lexicon to describe the period.)
Starting in the mid-1990s, the term emo began to refer to the indie scene that followed the influences of Fugazi, which itself was an offshoot of the first wave of emo. Bands including Sunny Day Real Estate and Texas Is the Reason had a more indie rock style of emo, more melodic and less chaotic. The so-called "indie emo" scene survived until the late 1990s, as many of the bands either disbanded or shifted to mainstream styles. As the remaining indie emo bands entered the mainstream, newer bands began to emulate the mainstream style. As a result, the term "emo" became a vaguely defined identifier rather than a specific genre of music."

Karson, virulent_messiah makes a good point. Just because you start a topic doesn't mean the rest of the community wants to end it.
Sorry, I just had to. XD
is he still fine?
Has he gotten normal again?
Is he still evil? lol, j/k.
A healthy dose of DEATH METAL is a good start...
What is DEATH METAL? I dunno.
Music that you can't hear the words, they just scream , known as emo music - " Screamo "
Which is dark. Not that I listen to it.......I'm just knoledgable!
Death metal, emo music, and screamo are not the same thing. Death metal is a form of heavy metal usually played extremely fast with gutteral vocals. Emo and screamo are formes of hardcore punk.
Can this topic be converted into a topic about the type of music.
