Definition: Emo teens tend to deal with emotions differently than normal teen or "preps". Emos tend to write poetry or draw. Unlike the stereo-type, most emos DO NOT cut themselves. Emos tend to have more empathy for other's making them great people to talk to when you're having a bad day. Emos tend like dark things. Like black for instance. Just because someone is emo it does not mean that they cut or have no friends! In fact, emos usually have their own clique. Emos tend to be anti-social because they are often bullied and they tend to not like bright colours. Emos tend to like alternative or rock bands. Emos tend to wear skinny jeans and band-T's. Most emo's are atheist. Emo's like horror. Emo's like things that creep out most others. Emos love to read. To them reading a book is like being in a different world. Most emo's get quite good grades. This is mostly due to the fact that they don't want to be singled out in a class room. Emo's are usually shy and very quiet.
Usage: Zak is very emo.

Definition: A person, usually teenage, that has trouble handling his/her own emotions, and/or is emotionally unstable. Can have multiple means of releasing or inducing emotions, such as talking, mutilation(usually of self or inanimate objects), or even listening to music. Most emos are pushed to suicide by others, and usually become emo due to a personality trait that is frowned upon unjustly in society, such as bisexuality. Emos usually do not want to be. Can be considered a mental disorder.
Usage: I wrote this definition out for you people because I am an emo and want you to see life the way we do.

Definition: Emo is a style of music originating a few decades ago in the DC area that never took off outside of its home location for many years. In the past decade, the music has seen a revival thanks to newer bands imitating the style. Many people incorrectly use the term to apply to persons dressing in a particular style or following a certain life image. That is what is funny about language though. We define language by how we use it. So emo could rightly be called a style these days. When I was in highschool, it was called goth or punk. I could make this even longer if I ranted about the missuse of those terms as well, so I won't. For people who claim it is a life choice, or even not a choice but something that "chooses you", its not. It is first and foremost a genre of music and secondarily defined as a style of clothing. It does not apply to all sad teens that cut. Ten years ago they called that goth and they were wrong then as well. My credentials? I was one of these so called goth cutters, and am proud to say that I look back on that and shake my head with a smile. Everyone has problems growing up; quit slapping a label on it to justify it.
Usage: "People use words like emo and goth incorrectly all the time."

Definition: Emo is not really a choice you can make, it is a form of life that chooses you. Bad things happen to people and depending on what and how effects what way you go. Many people become Emo, which do not always cut themselves. generally wear black, write stories, interested in Macabre and dark things, and we are generally interested in Art. Art is a form in which we can express ourselves to others, therefore most Other emo people i have met were usually artists as well. Many Emo people face social pressures due to stereo-types and such which push them to even further extremes to get rid of the pain. Each emo person deals with their depression and pain differently whether it be through artwork, cutting, singing, listening to music, or whatever really. Emo people are usually sensitive to others and can tell when something is wrong. we are essentially introverted people. I am not sure if I myself am entirely emo but given what I know I believe I can count myself in. I do not cut myself. I believe I am Emo, I'm not ashamed of it, and I hope you other people will read this and at least attempt to understand us. We do not all have good lives, we are not brats squabbling for attention, we are people who have been hurt more then you could possibly imagine. Thank you.
Usage: Jim: Have you seen that new kid, Will? <br>Fred: Yeah, whats wrong with him? <br>Jim: Hes Emo. His parents abused him when he was young, and told him they wished he was dead.

Definition: You know Emo stands for emotional.Yea sometimes we overreact but you guys don't have to be total A****** to us because most of us have real problems. My reason is i am depressed and i was molested by my Brother. i cut because of the flashbacks. Emos are people and if you have a problem with us you are just s*** out of luck. i grew up with everything i needed by that thing my brother did changed my whole life. SO DON'T JUDGE. because someday it will come back and bite you in the A**. Now where was I oh yea. we all don't express our feelings your best friend could be Emo and you don't know it
Some Emos are driven to suicide because of the pain it is like a disease that eats at your very soal. I use to cut. but don't stereo type because you guys are just pricks who have no life and need to pick on others to feel good about yourselves. You people make me sick......
I love to listen to music (But not rap). i love writing poetry, drawling,writing books, and singing. I love playing my Euphonium. These are the things that help me

Definition: Emo was origanaly a genre of music but later became a way of life for people who had a hard time and faild to get help. Emo's are deppressed, but for them they have lost all hope. They usually wear black and have peircings. Emo's somtimes cut them selfeves and even commit suicide. Most of the time the ones who do that are the ones who have gone partly insane. When u try too help these people they will aways tell u that they dont need help. Over all in my opinion an emo kid is a deppressed person who excepts the fact that its not going to get better for them. And when it does they deny it. Emo's are people who failed to make it to the light at the end of the tunnel and became trapped in the darkness, with no way out...
Usage: That emo kid from school.

Definition: Emo is not a music style, it is a lifestyle that many choose to live mostly after going through pain and loneliness, we wear black to express our feelings to the world and show we have no light left.We all are depressed but not all cut themselves we are highly emotional and listen to either music the comforts you in your loneliness or pain through certain types of rock we often don't have any friend's though there is little to no difference from having friend's as an emo because you have been taken hold within the arms of depression, i am emo and i am the lonely kind, i like quiet music and silence pleases me as is why im not caught in a crowd at school because of noise and previous losses of friends and bully's i am highly emotional and can get out of control when it comes to anger or crying. we do not need help and we don't necessarily worship the devil or are atheist that is the true meaning of emo.

Definition: Emo is a social minority view (as figurative sight is definitive to perception) conveyed through very human and understandable expressions of an individual's experience in life. In fruition these expressions are generally, though not exclusively, in abstractions representative of common thoughts and/or emotions often associated with what are known or believed to be typically uncommon events or situations. Ex. The angst, the pain, the tension, the sadness, the anger, the loneliness, the frustration, the cold, the numb, the betrayal, the alienation , the hatred, the disgust, the darkness, the love? Etc. Mostly owing to the word's origin, these abstractional expressions, the arts, the clothing, etc. often have a distinct uniform and have become quite popular in referance to most (young at least) people's recognition. As within most cultural sects, the uniform is both recognized and unrecognized to allow for identification and individuality. I believe it is a state of living able to be experienced by most of us, whether in adherence, for empathy, by phase, with fear or with comfort, vaguely or intensely.
Usage: Emo is a human functional state of being not all humans accept or understand as evidenced in part by this and many other definitions.

I am emo didnt really have a lot of friends.I do cut but I stopped because my boyfriend hated the scars(i was surprised to even have a guy to love me for). Emo are emotionally unstable when you trigur their emotions they tend to hurt themselves physically(and ofcoarse emotionally. Anyone could be emo. I always wore black and red, everyone is not a freak for doing. Being an emo comes naturally its not really something you chose. I am proud of who am and I think noone should fu***** care me about because everthing isnt what it seems so I continue to keep my distance from those who are different.

Definition: Emo is what others call a music style not a lifestyle, where you dressed up in black is what you like to wear thats not being emo. No one is technically an emo but our world is screwed up by changing words meaning. One last thing is the cutting personally is f---ing bulls--- but if you don't want to remember the pain don't inflict pain onto yourself. Its like fighting fire with fire find another alternative, Love Yourself for who you are. (This is my opinion on EMO. I'm not emo so people will be like screw his opinion but many others have troubles that don't cut themselves that find an alternative way for it. I have been confused on why do people cut themselves, it was fascinating why would people go through pain to get rid of pain, never thought people could do that to themselves maybe psychos but not people.)I hope this message has helped and please if you know someone that cuts themselves help those who need it. Also to leave this message saying there is nothing wrong with being "emo" but just don't cut yourself or hurt yourself because there is no reason to do it,maybe you could watch the anime "Naruto" it would help you lol maybe :)

Definition: A lot of people are still arguing over what emo is. Here's what emo REALLY is.
Emo is a genre of music derived from punk or alternative with emotional lyrics. Originally was short for emotional hardcore. Today, many bands have a more alternative influence or indie or pop punk influence ever since Sunny Day Real Estate reinvented it for a non-punk style. Can be shortened a lot for emotional, but it was mostly considered a genre of music.
Emo is emotional
Emo is short for emotional hardcore
Emo is not metal
Emo is not black veil brides
Emo is not any music with screams or growls
Emo is not goth
Emo is not dark
Emo is not self harm and depression and suicide
Emo is not wearing all black, horror makeup, tongues stuck out and having long hair (Black Veil Brides)
Emo is not depression, self harm and/or suicide
Emo is not dark clothes
Emo is not Asking Alexandria
Emo is not dead
Emo is not always a hair fringe and a band shirt
Emo is a music style
Emo can also be used as a term for its fans. It began in DC influenced by hardcore punk. Beginning with a classic post-hardcore sound, it was pioneered by Rites of Spring. Fading in the early 1990s, it was reinvented by Sunny Day Real Estate for a non-punk sound. Today some bands do have a punk influenced style though. Often punk rock fans would call emo fans as emo kids. Emo fashion includes a hair fringe (can be dyed jet black), emo band t shirts, tight jeans and studded belts and lip piercings. It first was more of thick rimmed glasses, koi fish tattoos and Chuck Taylor all stars. Although, emo is more of a genre of music instead. And in the emo music scene, originally nobody cared about "fashion". They dressed how they want. Some subgenres include screamo which is hardcore-influenced emo with screams and emo pop which pop punk-tinged emo.
Usage: Emo music includes Rites of Spring, Embrace, Get Up Kids, Saosin, My Chemical Romance, Senses Fail, Saddest Landscape, Thursday, Dashboard Confessional, Jimmy Eat World, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Saetia, Pg 99, Alexisonfire, Paramore, From First to Last, The Hated, Weezer, Underoath, Silverstein, The Used, Drive Like Jehu, Jawbreaker, etc.
NOT emo: BVB, BFMV, A7X, Asking Alexandria, as I lay dying, Marilyn Manson, green day, blink 182, BMTH, suicide silence, attack attack, devil wears Prada, of mice and men, cannibal corpse, aiden, misfits, Murderdolls, children of bodom, BOTDF, alkaline trio, title fight, the cure, KISS, motionless in white, vampires everywhere, for all those sleeping, etc

Definition: Um, well Emo's are people who have had a hard life, like me, I was abused as a kid, I was almost raped but I WAS molested, I've been homeless, I've seen at least 5 family members die in front of me, my mom told me, "I hate you, I wish I never had you! You're a failure and your never EVER gonna succeed! I'm surprised I still hadn't given you up for adoption you worthless peice of s---!" I've seen a few of my closest friends kill themselves or be murdered. D; I'm always depressed. Emo people are depressed most of the time, they are anti-social because of their life. (some events like being bullied) They have a part of their face covered all the time. I know a lot of people who make fun of Emo, my mom and brother is one of them, my other big brother and I are the closest because we are almost exactly alike and we are both Emo. Anyway, Mom, Marcus, I'M EMO! SO F*****G DEAL WITH IT! WE ARE PEOPLE TOO!

Usage: Yes I am emo and yes I can't stand this world. Emo people are people who think this world is a cruel hatred please wear there is only people who are all walking lies. Yes I seen someone die in front of me and I lost a lot of people who are dear to me. Yes I almost experienced death three times by overdosing and cut myself but it helps with relieve the pain I feel inside. Even though we are emo that doesn't mean all we do is sit around and cut Ourselves we have friends and yes we go places.
Posted by Deathlover on August 4, 2014 at 20:25:12 Pacific
Definition: Emotionally depressed people. They don't necessarily wear punk clothing, that's just for some emos. Some emos are really friendly and can always consult you about your troubles in a third person point of view, except that they are actually pretty negative themselves.
I guess every emo is slightly different in their own way. Some tend to be especially quiet and sit in a corner reading or drawing and minding their own business.
Some are straightforward and tell you exactly how they feel about you. I'm an emo myself and I simply fail to understand people who thinks that they're hot s---.
I can't see the bright side of life like most can. What's the point? You live such a short life and in the end you would be dead anyway. If there's a heaven, I hope life can be more meaningful there.
I don't mind being a background character, I don't mind if I don't have many friends, but I can't stand people who hate me. I try to treat them better, but honestly, they should just go to hell. I rarely get bullied physically because I have a tendency to literally kick those kind of people in the ass. It only helps to create to pathway to antisocial-ness and I get more verbally bullied than ever.
P.S For those who think that emos sucks, you guys are just f***ing as*****s

Definition: People tend to wonder, what does Emo mean?
Emo isn't a label you use on a person. Emo is just a shortened term for emotional, and calling somebody "Emo" just makes you look stupid. Because I may wear band shirts, skinny jeans, and converse everyday, but that doesn't mean I'm Emo. I may listen to a lot of what you all might call "Emo" bands. (E.g.; My Chemical Romance, Black Veil Brides, Sleeping With Sirens, etc.) But I also listen to heavier stuff. (E.g.; Dethklok, Deicide, Infant Annihilator, etc.) None of this makes me "Emo". Emo isn't a dress style. Nor is it based off of music someone listens to. Emo is just a shortened term for emotional. But please, don't label a person based on what they wear or what type of music they listen to.
Usage: Emo is a shortened term for emotional.

Definition: 'emo' Is has more than one definition. It's a type of music. The music can sometimes be negative and lead to kids doing very violent things. Also in emo bands because of the way the band members dressed there fans dressed like them. Which is also considerd emo. Emo is also when a kid starts cutting thereself, why do they do this? It's not always because they are just crazy loners that have no friends. Most kids have an issue and they dont know how to cope with it. It could simply be a girl constantly being pressured to have sex, and her boyfriend says he might leave her if she doesn't give him what he wants. Some can't cope with that and turn to cutting themselves to ease the pain. There kids with a problem not psychopaths that society makes them out to be.
Usage: Have you heard of Blood On The Dance floor, best Emo band ever!
Posted by Danigirl on April 8, 2012 at 20:40:48 Pacific
Definition: a type of music (usually softcore punk rock) which has overly emotional lyrics usually about heartbreak, depression, angst and breakups. usually emo bands either sing or scream (usually screamo bands scream) and they usually have soft parts of the song then louder parts of the song. most emo fans are usually overly emotional, sensitive people who usually get depressed over a girl and do crazy things (like bleeding for her) and they usually wear skinny jeans (they most likely stole it from their sister) and have black hair covering the face.
Usage: the emo band were crying when a girl broke up with them so they wrote a song called "my wrists, your love".

Definition: A cruel and insensitive term used by those who are probably more in need of psychotherapy, and definitely in need of at the minimum, a short course in the social graces. These people strike me as the type who, during their pre- (and post-) pubescent years, spent their leisure time torturing small animals; symptoms, in my opinion, of the underlying disorder they condemn in ‘emos.’ A person who reads the ‘scholarly’ definitions already extant in this ‘dictionary,’ and who suffers from the maladies mentioned has, as a result, found yet another reason (justified or not) to plunge deeper into despair. Emotional pain is no less painful than physical pain; sadly, however, it’s much more difficult to abate its symptoms. These people, per my observations, seem to be more painfully aware of the existential paradox than does a youngster who shelters one’s self in a darkened room, lit only by a PC’s monitor, and who by contrast escapes the vital question by living vicariously (a non-choice, which is *the* existential no-no) within the security of the cybervoid. (NOTE: Existentialism, as most of us know, is a particular flavor of (relativey) recent philosophy. It has as its basic tenet, but one question with which one must initially grapple: ‘Is life worth living?’ All other purported metaphysical questions are merely window-dressing, resolving themselves after that first answer — be it yea or nay) The ‘emo’ has faced the world. Unable to bear its pain, it attempts to relieve it by a (mostly) tried-and-true process — cartharsis (aka, ‘spilling yer guts out’). What makes us sick is what we keep inside; letting it out in a (hopefully) socially innocuous manner helps us heal ourselves. This is the path the ‘emo’ chooses. Those of us who repress our pain, disillusionment, etc. — immersed in a complex, pixelated surreality; sheltered in total anonymity — grow more ill. Please accept my apology for not providing a definition to the dictionary. I would be most gratified if it were considered to be a contribution. As a devotee of Tom and his hardware for many years, I was surprised and disappointed to see such an entry into what I had assumed to be a professional work; especially in light of Tom being a one-time medico (if I am to believe what I have read). Thank you for allowing me to be a member.
Usage: The term ‘emo,’ used by the insensitive to denigrate others with emotional difficulties, has no place anywhere in Tom’s Hardware proper, or any of its subsidiaries.

Definition: Complete idiots. So called "emotionals" often attempt to get depressed about anything and everything and over react emotionally for no reason other than to be attention whores. They wear their hair down over their face, often looking like it was used to wipe someones butt, or so we assume form the attendant acne that most have because they don't shower. Probably because showering makes them sad that it's wate that the fish could have, or that they can't take their camera in with them or it will be broken so they can't express the emotions that the moving water swells up inside of them with it's radient beauty. They dress absolutly aweful, like a cross between goths and a young avril lavinge. Rightfully they feel that every thinks they suck. This is because they do, but only because they have brought it on themselves. Had they not been emo we wouldn't make fun of them. Despite this, an that fact that they're not, they tend to think of themselves as hardcore and so can cop an attitude when they finally stop crying about how much the world hates them. Usually about how much better they are than everyone because they understand the emotional side of things and we "don't". they dress in drag and so are usually made fun of for being gay. Cause they are.
