I see alot of emo stereotyping and ray-ray all over the place. The point is that Emo music is emo music. - Hip-hop is hip-hip. EMO is a lifestyle as well as a music genre.
When people say that a certain kind of person is emo for making that emotionally charged song or some shit like that - it needs to be redefined, because all music is some form of emotion - whether you like it or not.
The word is spread in here - people calling Warcloud's music emo for instance...wdf when Wu-Tang has "After the Tears" - the point is neither song is about the Emo lifestyle.
All music is about some form of emotional thought based on the producers current emotional paradigm at the moment of creation.

So when you see somebody here throwing the word around, or anywhere for that matter - put em on to the truth.

Good analysis.



Maybe we should create sub genres called emo rap, emo ska, emo jazz, classical emo, emo trance, emo country, emo yodelling

hip-hop - brushing off bullshit and proceeding with confidence in life

man theres always a new word they use to brand a particular group of people, jus creating more division, emo is on some bullshit, what is it? some rock love songs, with dudes who hate life?...its all so sad and pathetic

the only musical genres which have an accompying lifestyle are hip-hop and rock(with many sub-genres)

17 year old pussies who dont smile with high pitched voices that rock tight wool sweaters, bangs to cover their eyes, tight ass jeans, itchy scarfs during in the summer and greasy unwashed hair that's been dyed several times. Empty suicide attempts come normally

Emo was good music, honest and powreful. It actually is short for Emotive Punk. Not a shortening of the dictioanry word 'Emotional'. It prettymuch died in like, the 80's though.

Screamo is pretty cool, evolutionary-wise... real Screamo, not MCR or whatever the kids are talking about. Wikipedia these terms. Or better yet imo, look through groups and genres on Last.fm. I promise both these genres are worth the time to most with an open mind who have the patience to look past primitive social stereotyping.

It's a pretty sweet site for hip-hop, also.

Oh and the way that some Hot Topic faggots dress. That's just called dressing terrible, not emo.

Yep? If you thought I meant that 'Emotive' wasn't in the dictionary, my bad on the sentence structure.

I simply meant that it is a common misconception that emo means 'Emotional', because it is actually short for 'Emotive'.

Cmon, just because somebody says a song is gay or something is gay doesn't mean it's actually physically sucking dick or giving its ass away. It's the same shit, why you being so literal for? Emo is simply a term for stupid looking depressed kids.

Sinth
12-18-2007, 08:15 PM
Calling something emo because it's way too emotional is fine, just like saying something is gay to express negativity, is generally accepted and used, even by and around the gay community.

BUT

If you don't know what the word even means, in technicality... to a basic extent... it can leave you sounding stupid and ignorant.

I meet a lot of people who ask if I cut myself, am depressed, if I wear makeup to gigs, or like my chemical romance - simply after I tell them that it's a genre I listen to! I'm interested in none of the above. I'm always asked these types of question though, as a result of mass-ignorance.

Do any of you guys like the idea of Crunk being reffered to as Hardcore Rap? Or fans of Hip-Hop being regarded as murederous gangsters who ruin society?

Being questioned worriedly by new acquaintances as a result of that?

That is the kind of ignorance Emo as a genre is up against today.
I just wanted to drop some knowledge, not contend the use of the word in some stupid way.
