emos = poseurs

im glad the original emo died out

and its funny how the youth today are trying to bring it back, in a twisted way

original emo, today's emo = barf

today's emo = guys dressed in girlpants...and they only do it to lure girls, because lyk z0mgs evry1 no3z g1rlzz LUV emo, lyk omg.

No way.

today's emo = bullet for my valentine, underoath, a7x, fall out boy, panic at the disco, muse

i would go on but i am SURE (hopefully) that everyone gets the idea

We do, todays emo's don't know where emo came from, if a true emo was to lable themselves then the closest they would get is punk cos that's where it came from, not f.ags in skinny jeans and converse.

Goths with emotinal problems would be a relatively close way of describing emos but not always, it has turned into a ridiclus fasion trend, and then of course there are those who claim to be "emo" fo attention.
