    ot: emo

    As this is the only place I'd heard or read the word "emo" in 2 or 3 years (in the "ugly mugs" thread"), I figured it would be a suitable place to post this:
    The spark came first in Queretaro on March 7. An estimated 800 young people poured into the city's Centro Historico hunting for emos to beat the crap out of. They found some. The next weekend it spread to Mexico City, where emos faced off against punks and rockabillies at the Glorieta de Insurgents, the epicenter of emo social space in the capital. There's also been reports of anti-emo violence in Durango, Colima, and elsewhere.

    I lived in Kansas City back when TGUK were making it big. I was always more of a Coalesce guy though, and honestly Matt was kind of a ******tard.

    Edit - it's nice to see someone else around here that actually remembers what the original emo bands sounded like though.

    I like alleged "EMO" music. But I feel shafted when I hear the term "EMO" used to describe anything essentially sissy. Its become a term for haters.

    The biggest issue I have with it is that EMO I would wager is just short for EMOtional. No?

    If thats the case... isn't ALL music essentially EMO? I mean, the driving force behind music is emotion?

    Only of SSFG could we have a thread with pictures of Still Life.

    The weirdest thing about emo to me was how people came to be known and self-identified as "emos."

    Also, who knew there were emo kids in Mexico? Certainly not I.

    haha nice picture. I always associated emo with Fugazi, Sunny Day Real Estate and that whole thing. I don't know how sad middle schoolers with greasy bangs and white belts and scene girls on MySpace taking pictures from above became "emo".

    I heard someone refering to some kids as "emos" a couple weeks ago. Pretty f'n ridiculous.

    apparently there are armies of teenagers the world over with choppy black hair and eyeliner who are unwilling to stand up for themselves.

    i'm going to go back to my rites of spring and policy of 3 records and start considering myself old.

    hopefully this emo revolution will finally bring the indie intifada to full public attention.

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    I dont think anyone thinks of The Get Up Kids or Sunny Day Real Estate or any of the other bands that were, in fact "emo" that came from the post hardcore punk movement. It's just come to mean overly emotional, whiny and angsty. I dont much care, I remember and still listen to good emo bands, call me what you will. Music is music, and if it's good, i'll lend an ear.

    i was at a music festival (that mostly features electronic music) with my ex girlfriend a year ago or so and these kids who looked to be around 14 ran by us screaming EMO! EMO! YOU ARE EMOS! at us. they seemed very angry about it. i guess we're lucky we weren't beaten.
