A person who usually acts depressed, dresses in very tight clothing (i.e, if male retro Vans skate shoes and sometimes womens jeans), listens to indie music, and in quite a few cases has life very good and just looks for something to be depressed about, but usually has no reason to be (or usually just act) depressed. They also usually have hair over one side of their face (see "AFI").
Guy 1. "dude, is he wearing womens jeans?"

Guy 2. "yeah, he's emo, or he thinks he is"

Desensitised word that is used by any person who likes, or is affiliated with rap,or who enjoys crap music in generla. It is a term used to encompass any form of rock music in a derogatory way. Originally referring to a narrow genre of Emotive metal and hard rock, it was used by MTV and other music channels to describe a bunch of bands who dress a certain way. People who listen to a certain type of music BECAUSE of the way they dress(ie skinny jeans, tight shirts) can be described as Emos(note the diffence to dressing a certain way to reflect their music choice). Emo is now a style of dress more than anything. Emos can also be described as hissy cutters. Emo was originally a type of good ol' fashioned pioneer rock and metal. But now its a word that is thrown around and makes all true rocker cringe.
Rap Guy: man, you listen to system of a down and Alice Copper and stuff? What an Emo!
Rock Guy: Shut up you inferior being, you know nothing. May your children be consumed by a thousand hungry spiders.

Emos are a group of people, or a trend that has influenced and encouraged suicidal tendencies and hatred towards life and everyone and everything in it. I pity them, and understand that they may have hard lives at home and such, but it isn't worth the self-destruction that they pour on themselves. Think about this, unless you're an Emo, then you're just plain wrong, and I don't give a damn what you think. If you think that Emos should die, you'd be rigt. But think about what their situation could be like at home. Overall, don't judge them onsight, leave that to God; he'll probably send them straight to hell.
Emos: Man im so depressed, im gonna go cut myself and drink myself to death cuz i have nothing better to do.

Me: Stop cutting youself. Don't be Emo, you'll just get criticised. Go fill you life with something meaningful, not drugs, alchohol and sex. Gain something which can't be taken from you ever.

a way of life that is either often rejected or misinterpreted. those that are emo will never admit to actually being emo because then that would be another form of conforming to a meaningless consumer driven life. emos are driven in a meaningless life but they do not allow themselves to become consumed in materialistic items. they are vampires to society, never will they accepted. nor do they wish to be. they view life as constantly shitting on them and personally i agree. life does always find its little ways of making those humble suffer enernally
emo is a way of life often misinterpreted as a fashion statement

if all of u think that emo is short for emotional then u r all emo. every one has emotions and get emotioinal. emos are comfortable with showing their emotions unlike the rest of you who are too pussy to show your emotions. GROW THE FUCK UP! so leave us "EMOS" alone. and for thoes of u who think that My Chemical Romance is emo u are greatly mistaken. they are the best band and are great at what they do. so leave them alone. they actually help to save peoples lives.
everyone is free to express themselves emos actually do it!
and me, C, i'm "emo", an honor student and my best friend is a cheerleader so what now!

A depressing subculture. Subculture deriving from 'sub' (below) and 'culture' (culture) meaning "Below/insignificant/lower culture".

The collective term for which is unanimously a 'futility of emos'.
I was down at my record shop, and towards the back I saw this massive futility of emos just standing there silently.

It does not mean to cut your wrists or wear skinny jeans or have side bangs. To cut your wrists means your depressed, to wear skinny jeans is along the lines of clothing and fashion, and having side bangs is about hair. Being Emo, is not possible because Emo is a music genre, meaning "Emotive Hardcore" and last that I have heard, people can not be a music genre
1. No one uses this word correctly.

2. This Emotive Hardcore music is very Emotive Hardcore
