The Top Ten
We don't do that. Some might because it let's out pain we feel but not all. I don't do that. I may be hiding certain feelings but I don't cut.
People who are depressed self harm. Being emo has nothing to do with it. - Catlover2004

I do that. - ThatEmoLonerV 2 Comments
I have no idea where this came from but not true.
Um, no - ThatEmoLoner
WHERE DID THIS COME FROM
I'm emo and attention is the opposite of what I want.
Most emos don't want much attention
Most Emo kids are the ones who don't call themselves emos just so they WON'T attract attention
Emos just want a place to relax, not attention seeking. - MChkflaguard_YtV 1 Comment
We just want someone to listen to us. And then when yall want us to talk we don't because yall never wanted to hear it so then you call us mute...
I wouldn't say we whine… - ThatEmoLoner
Where did this come from? I don't often wear makeup, but when I do, it's black and amazing.
Never wear makeup
I BUY MY OWN MAKEUP - ThatEmoLoner
...riiggghhht. Some would live to get bullied by selfish bully's so they make fake scars...no wro g if u didn't get my sarcasm...(not hate in just agreeing that its not true.)V 1 Comment
Hasn't everyone at some point? - HappyMouse111
So, this ain't a stereotype this is something that everyone does on a weekly basis - RustyNail
If they do, like me, they will at least wear short sleeves.

People say my poems are good by I think everything I do is trash. - ThatEmoLoner
Clearly people never once read emo poetry - RustyNail
Whoa awesome poem. I write poems.
Amazon poetry!V 1 Comment
You don't know what they live to at home..
Although sometimes it's a cry for help, it just could be attention seeking. Everybody wants to be heard, to be seen.
So just think before you say certain things..
This is true, I am very depressed - ThatEmoLoner
This isn't true
I have straight blue hair
Nah its usually straight and black and covers one eye. - AlphaQ
I have pink, blue, and black hair. Straight
My hair is brown & fluffyV 4 Comments
First of all the music you listen to is pop-punk not emo (not saying My Chemical Romance isn't great). If you actually like the emo genre you would know emo is generally a very slow yet ruff unorthodox style of music often utilizing odd time signatures. Bands you would listen to would be Sunny Day Real Estate, American Football, and Christie Front Drive.
My Chemical Romance Sucks To Be Honest. - AlphaQ
Wow I follow at least 40% of these stereotypes sorry.
How many of you have every eminem,taylor swift, justin timberlake, metallica, or queen song on your phone? You generally have a lot of songs by people you like guys. - RustyNailV 12 Comments
My hair covers both my res and I'm not emo cause my hair is dreadlocks. - AlphaQ
No, but I do have side bangs and they get in my eyes a lot. - Catacorn
Sometimes both lol. - AlphaQ
Mine does that… - ThatEmoLonerV 1 Comment
Ever seen Black Veil Bride music? It's SUPER inspirational "In the end as we fade into the night. Who will tell the story of your life and who will remember your last goodbye? 'Cause it's the end and I'm not afraid to die"
Listen to Black Veil Brides, My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, etc
Yes it's awful. It's feels that they try to hard to sound depressing and just end up failing. - AlphaQ
Black veil brides is cringeyV 2 Comments
That's ridiculous. Not every emo is gay. There's also nothing wrong with being gay. At all. - ThatEmoLoner
So they're gay even though they have girlfriends - Marine_Soldier
I'm pretty sure there are straight emos - AlphaQ
Wheres your logic numnuts - RustyNailV 4 Comments
Kinda want this some... who doesn't like Fall Out Boy?
Real emos prefer My Chemical Romance. Just saying.
I do... - ThatEmoLoner
On my music playlist, it's only emo. - Catacorn
I listen to a little bit of emo. - Croy987
I listen to death metal,different kinds of rock, punk, and black metal. - ThatEmoLoner
Yea... no... that's just dumb
It's fun. I just go to the dollar store and buy washables because it can be easy to wash off if you just want to doodle. (I'm not emo by the way) - SansTheComic
I do that when I'm pissed and I'm not an emo. - PrincessKiana
Its fun to draw on your self
I've tattooed myself and sort of regret it. - AlphaQV 3 Comments
How is it self pitying
HA! NOPE. Some of us are religious, and some of us are atheists ((because, let's be real, all you need to be a good person is Harry Potter)) but NONE OF US ARE SATANISTS. We look different, we listen to different music, we enjoy different pastimes. But just because we don't fit into society, or we don't look "normal", or most of us wear a lot of black, DOES NOT mean that we are all part of some evil devilish occult. *drops mic*
Only Patrick Stump and Gerard Way
That's hilarious - ThatEmoLoner
HA HA HA! that's so NOT TRUE!
Goth is actually a culture with its own alphabet. Easier than the Latin ABC too, hence both the original one and the one we follow nowadays. P.S when it comes to the subculture of being Goth is it NOT about stuff like how much of dark clothing you wear that matters. One person may look Goth, or even Emo or whatever but what if it has a persona pretty much like quite the opposite?
Goth I'm guessing came from gothic art.
They seem very similar. - AlphaQ
Goths and Emos are totally different and Emos aren't imitating Goths whatsoever. Look, I'm a Goth and let me explain the differences really quick:
Goth is a Subculture with a mindset, history, music, fashion, literature, art, and movies. They started out in the year of 1979/1980. The music we Goths listen to are Post-Punk, Goth Rock, Deathrock, Batcave music, Gothic Metal, Symphonic Gothic Metal, Dark Cabaret, Dark wave, EBM, Classical Music, Ethereal Wave, New Wave (depending on what band), Synth-Pop (depending on what band), and Dream Pop (depending on what band).
Emo is a stereotype with music, fashion, and art.
They started out in the year of 1985. The music Emos listen to are Emo, Screamo, Post-Hardcore, Emotional Hardcore, Emocore, Hardcore Punk, Indie Rock, Pop Punk, Emo Pop, Melodic Hardcore, Emoviolence, and Melodic Emocore. (I have a friend that's Emo, so...)
You don't know what they've been through. I saw my mother beaten over the head with a hammer, by my stepfather, who actually came after me with it. There's a kid at school who thinks his the funniest thing in the world. They mock me for being scared of hammers and for being fascinated with death. what?
You don't know what happens at their house
Most Emos don't want to talk about their feelings. - ThatEmoLoner
I get in trouble, but not on purpose. - ThatEmoLoner
FUDGE YOU THAT SO UNTRUE
Once again SCREW YOU!
I don't like school because of the people in it, not because I don't care about my education. I actually care a lot. - ThatEmoLoner
I'm emo and I love school and learning
I'm emo and I certainly care about my education and getting into a good, or decent, college. Stop judging and maybe ask us a few questions first. 😒
This is not true at all even people that aren’t one of us cut
Nope, not at all. The G-Note joke is annoying as hell. It ruined Welcome To The Black Parade for me, it's overrated, and everybody flips out when there isn't a warning about an upcoming G-Note. - Catacorn
This is very true anyone who says otherwise is lying
I cry, don't know about others Emos - ThatEmoLoner
Not trying to be rude, but if you're African American, it's a little hard to pull of the men style, hard but not impossible.
That's not true at all - ThatEmoLoner
ARE YOU DENYING MY REAL IDENTITY JUST BECAUSE I'M ASIAN
Not all of us are bi. I mean, some might be, but I'm not.
True for me here, but not all of us are bi
Emocore (emotive hardcore) is the first wave of emo (in the 80s) which consists of band like rites of spring, embrace, and arguably cap'n jazz while it lead to emotive post-hardcore (in the 90s) which then became shortened to simply emo. Bands in this genre are, early jimmy eat world, mineral, and sunny day real estate. Later on in the 2000 people in the industry noticed a difference in the new wave of pop punk and 90s pop punk (My Chemical Romance vs offspring) so they called bands with this new pop punk style emo, needless to say this angered the existing emo community, and lead to a lot tension between the two groups.
The false stereotype should be "Emo is scene" or "Emo is pop punk"
Emocore is a music style from the 90s.
Emo is a subculture from the 2000s and 2010s.
I hate when I talk about emo bands and then people say that I should listen to Jimmy Eat World for a good emo band. They are emocore and not emo. - Martin_Canine
Finally someone who knows their history. I feel like jack black in school of rock, trying to explain the history of this branch of rock to the ignorant masses.
Emo is a genre dating back to the 80s with rites of spring founding the genre.
My Chemical Romance isn't emo when being compared to bands like Sunny Day Real Estate. - Catacorn
My Chemical Romance is pop punk. Emo is Sunny Day Real Estate, Braid, Empire Empiire, and mineral.
Listen to Sunny Day Real Estate (arguably the most important Emo band) and then listen to My Chemical romance, the two are nothing alike.
That the point of being Emo
I do - ThatEmoLoner
You only hear they're complaints. They say good things to. Maybe if school bitches and man whores soul leave us alone maybe instead of assuming about you'll actually know us.
