Personally...I think that country music is EMO...Emo isn't killing are kids....people need to take some responsibilty.

Honestly that was the stupidest piece of shit I have ever bothered to read. I don't think that its the music, computer/video games, or movies at all. That is just art. Does art tell you to kill yourself? No...I didn't think so. What happens is that really gullable and nieve people get their hands on it, and read things into it that didn't exist to begin with. Like that infamous case where that girl "dated a boy" via myspace and then killed herself when he broke up with her. Gullable and stupid. Very stupid. She took an online relationship that seriously?

But oh yes...by all means. The "emo" music is killing kids everywhere. Yea, my ears bleed whenever that sound creeps in. Besides that shit isn't even emo, its really super whiny pop rock.

I don't like emo music
But that post sucked
Why?
Because we've been through this with TONS of metal bands in the past. MUSIC CANNOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT KIDS DO! If a kid has those kinds of deep rooted issues, its stupid to blame the music they listen to. Why not blame the food they eat or the clothes they wear?? Parents need to take responsibilty for their kids and not scapegoat artist. If that's the case, lets start burning witchs again because our crops wont grow (rolls eyes)

AND
who the fruck wrote that post, it wasnt an artical! It had NOTHING to back it up!!

I think what most view as emo is simply a style choice, and thanks to liking that style people get labelled as sucidal and over dramatic, I'm far from what anyone could label myself my brother however is an adorable lil "emo" punk kid lol and hes as happy as they come, his adhd makes that damn evident... i hate stereo types and labels in general lol so my brother has pretty hair and wears tight jeans and eye liner... meh
Why label

You have gone back on your word lol.
You have just said there is no such thing as
stereotypes but earlier up you called your
brother a punk kid.:] Just thought I'd point
that out.
