    it's a stupid catch phrase that is now a "buzzword" these days. it started in the eighties as an insult to punk rockers that weren't violent.

    now stupid kids are actually labelling themselves that. its really stupid. people shouldn't use that word.

    emo is short for emotional and emo music is you guessed it EMOTIONAL MUSIC! emo music comes in many shapes and sizes but it all seems very watered down and crybaby-ish example: dashboard confessional, new found glory, jimmy eat world.

    hope this helps!

    sounds like a bunch of pussys if they're labeling themselves as non-violent people.

    anybody who claims they're emo will be punched in the face, or at least pushed while they have a drink in their hand. not on this board, obviously, but if I ever meet one.

    so what, they think they invented emotional music? music lacked emotions altogether until these kids who listen to "dashboard confessionals" came out? hmmmmm...

    these kids need to stop worrying about theyre label and concentrate on actually making good music....i guess that would be to much to ask of the "punkrock/emo/hardcore" crowd these days....

    fucking high school...i swear
