They probably don't mean it as an insult when they ask you if you like those bands

Nobody said it wasn't "Real Music" - he just said it sounds like shit. I concur.

^ Quoted for truth.

I know this is a tATu forum but, seriously, how can anyone honestly put forward the opinion that tATu are better that Bullet For My Valentine or The Devil Wears Prada? The very notion itself is laughable. For starters, both Bullet and TDWP write their own music and play their own instruments. Immediately that's 2 points they have in their favour over tATu.

Secondly, I thought this was an "emo" thread. Neither Bullet nor Devil Wears Prada are 'emo' bands, so why were they even mentioned?

Thirdly, "emo" is a genre of music. It's not a fashion or a lifestyle choice. It's about the music. Why do people always lose sight of that fundamental fact?

I feel that this is a debatable issue... as far as I've seen there are no spesific genre of music alone called "emo", however there are some genres where emo is a style the bands can chose to imply in the already established genre they're playing, no? Hehe. I admit I haven't diven that far into the current "emo music", cause it's not something I've fallen for. I only care about what I like.

However, saying 'emo is not a fashion' is a statement I dunno if I can agree with. It might not historically be so, but today it's a most certainly a fashion. They even sell clothes branded as emo. I see the "emo look" everywhere. I've had the impression that it's very well established as a trend, but as far as lifestyle go I agree, of course.

No there is a genre of music that is specifically emo, most people don't know what they are talking about when they label the majority of bands out there "emo". Emo is short for Emotional Punk, examples would be... Death Cab for Cutie, The Juliana Theory, Old school Jimmy Eat World, Brand New and Emery.

MCR - Not emo, Screamo
Senses Fail - Not emo, Scremo
Good Charlotte - Not emo, shitty pop punk
AFI - Not emo, Hardcore/ Post Hardcore

Make sense?

Offtop:
Mossopp, you like Paramore right? You should check out a band called Automatic Loveletter. They are way better than Paramore, and the lead singer Juliet (totally awesome and real in person I might add) comes up with the most thought provoking lyrics.

OMG you guys are right this topic does start alot of BS.
lol, jk.

Guys I dont even care, these statements I made are on my opinion.
And in my opinion...

EMO IS STUPID! Very dumb, and ridiculious, why would a person want to
be sad? Waaaa, cry me a river, move on with your life.
I try to think and believe in positive things, in this unpositive world.
so idc.....


If I have ofended anyone, I am extremely sorry!
I just dont like some music groups... sorry...
I actually have met "Devil Wears Prada" when they came to Springfield, and they seem very nice.
I just dont like that kinda music....

You should all know by now that I love you all, no matter of what opinions you have,
what style you wear, what music you listen to, how you look, etc."
So I guess my style is Love. Plain and simple.

That's a matter of opinion. I don't care how accomplished a band is, t.A.T.u. will always be number one in my book on talent. It's not like the girls have no musical education. They did help with the sound producing on Lyudi Invalidy and they do both play musical instruments.

Not everyone relates "emo" to a need to feel sad all the time. From what I've read here so far, some equate it to music, some to clothing and lifestyle, etc. -- which, I guess, is where all the confusion and arguments are coming from. There is no set definition for the word itself. Or maybe there is, but I don't care enough to bother looking it up.

Well let's start with this...
This is one of those stupid emo quizzes. Are you emo? How Emo are you? Really, what's the point of an emo quiz, anyway? Do you really need a stupid test to find out how emo you are? Whatever. It doesn't really matter, but take the quiz anyway.
then say how much you scored!
******************
How to Be Emo

Have you recently felt depressed? Alone? Abandoned by your family and friends? Misunderstood by the world? If you have, and like to express your puzzled feelings and emotions in poetry and music, chances are you're what today's society considers "emo".

Steps

1.Understand what emo is.
"Emo" has many meanings. Some would say its only a genre of music, categorized by hardcore music with sad, emotional lyrics. Others consider it only a brief way to call someone "emotional". Still, there are those who believe "emo" is a lifesytle and choose to live their lives the "emo" way. Like any style, fashion or culture, the exact definition is up for debate and often varies according to personal expression. The term emo is loosely associated with emotional rock; most emos like underground or indie music.
2.Appreciate emo music.
Emo is a rock music genre, usually consisting of emotional lyrics and optional "screamo." Over the years, this music genre was usually seen as underground until recent times, making emo music more popular than ever. This music sometimes consists of lyrics seen by many as "whiny," and "sensitive." Listen to a lot of emo bands, and maybe even consider picking up an instrument, such as a bass or guitar. Also try the violin, if you invest enough time into it emo songs on the violin are incredibly emo-sounding. The drums can also be a very good instrument. You may even want to write your own songs by writing poetry and turning it into songs.
3.Test yourself.

Try listening to emo music. If you end up liking this type of music, and come out sobbing after you’re done with the album, you’re probably a "true" emo. Getting inner emo is all a matter of finding out of you have it or not.
4.Dress emo.
After you have discovered your inner emo, try shopping for a new wardrobe. Emo fashion has roots in both punk and goth. Wear tight jeans, tight shirts with emo band logos on them, studded belts, and an old, black and worn down pair of sneakers. Thick, black-rimmed glasses are not uncommon for emo guys. Also, stripes and checkers are big in the emo culture.
5.Get an emo hairstyle.
Dye it black or brown with perhaps some blond or unnatural color streaks, especially in the bangs. If you are a girl, you may possibly want to cut your hair to a very short bob-like hairstyle but keep your bangs long, swept drastically to one side and covering your eye. Or, for those who like long hair, get many choppy layers and highlights. For a guy, you may want to spike up the back side, and pat down on the front side. You could also get your bangs/fringe dyed a lighter color than the rest of your hair.
6.Get the attitude.

A lot of times, emo is associated with being bitter, depressed, insecure and resentful. But at its core, you can be emo because you're sensitive, introspective, thoughtful, and quiet. Don't ever be loud or in anyone's face; focus on your own emotional life.

Tips

  • When applying eyeliner, do not be afraid to apply to the inside of the lids, not below, it adds a more dramatic affect.
  • When shopping for emo clothing, be sure to check stores like Hot Topic, Vans, and Spencers (for accessories), you will be able to find most of what your looking for there.
  • Remember, that you CAN wear other colors than black. Though black is a very popular color among emos, you don't want to wear too much or people might mistake you for "gothic" (NOT a good thing).
  • Do not try too hard to be emo, others will see you as a poser.
  • Do not go around telling people you are emo, let them figure it out for themselves, or they will call you a poser.
  • If someone asks you if you are emo, simple shrug your shoulders or deny it. If they asked you, chances are, their opinions are already made and then your approval isn't going to change it much.
Warnings
  • Real emo music is not popular and will be hard to find in most music stores.
  • Do not tell people that you're emo or that you are trying to be emo, let them figure it out for themselves, or you will be called a poser.
  • You may be subjected to negative criticisms by your non-emo friends and possibly the majority of society, just ignore them.
  • I will not tell you that cutting yourself is bad, in some ways it does help, and I'm not going to criticize you, bit I will warn you, people do not think highly of "cutters" and will not treat you kindly if they find out. It could even lead to more serious consequences such as counseling. If you do cut, do not make it known and be aware of the consequences.
  • Things You'll Need
  • Skinny jeans
  • Band/graphic tee shirt
  • Converse/Vans sneakers
  • Studded belt
  • Emo hair cut (very important)
  • Black tote bag (with or without pins)
  • Accessories
  • Ipod, Mp3, Zune, other music devise
  • Your parent's approval <-(LMFAO)

PS:Emo is not For Everyone


And you're all set to Be EmO!

Geez, I never knew you had to follow steps in order to be something or someone. Personally, I think it's either you are or you aren't. Let the definition fit you, not the other way around because that's just pretentious. But hey, maybe that's just me.
