    haha emo??
    In contrast to popular diessent, it is not short for emotional, it is short for emolian. Yes emolian, i know its whack but so are the guys who like it. The get up kids is a cousin to emo but its not emo its indie pop rock/indie rock/pop punk. Real emo goes as Texas Is The Reason, Mineral, Fugazi, etc. It comes out of washington DC in the late eighties when hardcore punk started to pick up. The emolian guys wanted an alternative to hardcore, they were all originally hardcore punk types unntil idiots like the get up kids desamated the style. And the thing about the hair and black clothing thats tight, it comes from a mix of goth/im depressed, mixed with neo-british punk style/dirty gutter punk/ weezer sac rides/metal head with a short haircut. The originator of real emo such as Mineral and fugazi and a whole other group of unkown DC underground bands never dressed the way these current emo kids do. and they are just that kids, following stupid trends.
    the real thing about the way they dress comes from being simple.
    real emo starts off slow and builds up to a climax of raw feeling and intensity[much like hardcore] and then drops off.

    im out
    later

    please never, ever clump pedro the lion in with garbage like the juliana theory...pedro the lion is just like your typical singer / songwriter folk...in more ways than one. not every band that doesnt 'chugga chugga' should be labeled this ...because then we would have to rewrite history with simon and garfunkle as the inventors of emo....not embrace, rites of spring , or slint.

    check out slint, texas is the reason, the metroschifter, car vs. driver and those types of bands. "emo" was hot shit before it turned into sissy ass junk. somewhere after the first promise ring full-length it all went to hell. piebald still rocks it like they're supposed to, check 'em out if you've never heard their songs.
