So I thought the emo thing died out in '07... not the actual music genre that was big in the 90's, the fashion kids.
Mexicans are serious business.
Sad hair foreverrr.....
LOL. only in 'merica. EDIT + mexico.
At least they know why they are getting beat up. I got jumped in Queretaro for absolutely no reason at all.
As stoked as I am on random violence, I dislike the anti-homosexual aspect of this story.
Awesome! It's the Mods vs the Rockers all over again. Only lamer. Much lamer.

I prefer targeted violence, so I'll know how to avoid being a target.
It's weird seeing "emo" kids with medium skin tone. I always imagined emo as pasty-white American kids. I mean, can you imagine a Mexican goth kid? Oh, sorry I asked...
Ha, the end of the article was exactly correct:
But Arellano said he thought the riots could have a positive impact here in the US.
"It's a great clusterfu*k for the American mind's idea of Mexico," Arellano said. "This teaches the rest of the world that Mexico is not just a bunch of cactuses and sombreros."
I love that other countries youth are so miseducated that they feel they need to do something like this to prove to America that there's more than cactus' and sombrero's there?
Yay for anti-emo.
Every passing minute is another chance to turn it all around.
I'm confused... so it was just a bunch of random violence so then they decided to get together and protest only to get the crap kicked out of them?
Less wining = less people beating you up.
i had a few run ins with emos they do make life difficult to the point where you have to beat the message into them. like getting them to stay off the bike rack.
riding and pimpin again
Hahahahah... the fat "metal head" or "rockabilly" kid they were interviewing during the whole thing said, "We're here to fight against the emos." The reporter then asks, "Why the violence?" To which he replied, "Because they're copying our style!"
*********ing EMO's screwing up everything that's cool about goth.
I concur with your observation, though. The "Baby Bats" as I like to call them just don't have the level of style the old schoolers had / have. The ones that stay tend to graduate from the tank tops and bondage pants they wore at last month's rave though, especially after someone ganks their glowsticks.
To tell the truth all of the stereotypes that people lump on Goths (over dramatic depressed loners with cutting scars) really apply more to Emo's.
I love the Crüxshadows. Most of the "Emo" music I don't care for. Crüxshadows is mostly darkwave, which is basically Goth music mixed with Industrial.
