I like emo music, like Senses fail, the starting line, death cab for cutie, sugarcult, coheed and cambria, all the way to every time I die. I know that sXe has allot to do with the music you listen to, does this mean I am sXe, or just clean?

But if you fail to recognize which music scene started straight edge, then it'd be pretty dimwitted to consider yourself straight edge. I'd stick with the label "clean" until you brush up on your ethics.

Also, it wouldn't hurt to find out what "emo" means either.

1st of all... wot is sXe? educate me... 2nd, who cares whether you are, you should listen to wot you want to listen to, feel comfortable about it without worrying wot other ppl think. ppl criticize all the time and some ppl do it so well they tend to hurt other ppls feelings but that shouldn't change who you are or wot u listen to, just be yourself n don't care wot other ppl think!!!

um sorry to tell you that those bands arent really emo, they are more like indie rock (death cab) and pop-punk (sugercult, the starting line).  as for the whole sXe situation ide stay away from that and just go with clean until you get ur definitions straight.

If you're going to even try to pin a label on emo, dont bother. You'd be reading to much into something thats simple really. Watch what you're calling emo, or when you try to pull your starting line bs on an emo fan, should you ever be able to recognize one since you're so emo yourself, you would most likely look like an ass. Dont run off to dictionary.com and look up emo, cuz it's not something you find there. Take a good look inside yourself, if you can find who you really are, and emo's just present, you choose whether or not you want to bring out that part in you more prominantly. Soooooo many misconceptions...

sXe is a primarily punk movement that does not promote drugs, alchohol, smoking or other life ruining descisions.  Emo IS a way of life for many people.  It is highly overwritten in the media.  Shut Up if you are just going to diss my way of life faggots

Emo is what you think it is, guys. If you listen to Emo music, (Dashboard...etc) then you listen to Emo music. If you write songs, poetry that are Emo, you are Emo. What is Emo? It can be a way of life, a kind of music, or just a word. Emo means "emotional Rock" it is pretty much people screaming about love, hate, depression, break ups, and stuff like that. And sorry, they don't all scream. Emo had a very slow beat, well not extreamly slow, but still slow. It was dark, as in the music is all low chords and stuff. I know Emo. I am a professional Emo Lyric Writer. So no one tell me that I don't know what Emo is.

And you shouldn't be glued to trying to label yourself. Just listen to music you YOURSELF think is good, screw what people think, be yourself.

First off - get it right! If you want to be labelled an 'emo kid' you should at least know what emo is!! Those bands you mentioned aren't emo! Emo is stuff like Taking Back Sunday, Dashboard Confessional, Finch, Funeral For A Friend etc. Does it matter what people think of you as long as you're being honest with yourself?! Listen to what you want, don't listen to bands so that you can fit into some stereotypical label.

i can agree with mm on this one, sugarcult and the starting line are not emo. emo is a very universal word. you should not label any band emo in a genre form publicly, but only if it reaches out to your heart and makes you gasp for air, thats when you can label a band emo.
       it is not the band which is emo, it is how you feel when you listen to it because everyone does not feel the same way listening to this music.

hmm...I think that we shouldn't be concerned with what 'genre' we fall under...I'd have to make up a new one for me anyhow...I don't fit any "one" genre perfectly...but if I had to...I would fall under an emo/punk catagory...I like punk music, and I have a rebellious side to me, but then again...I like emo music, and I have what most people don't which is 'depth of thought' which might or might not be a good thing...I haven't come to that conclusion yet.  But I would rather KNOW that life is meaningless, and we all end up in relatively the same place in the end, so it really doesn't matter...than to not know this and live my life pleasing others, falling under conformity, overall losing a sense of who I really am...following the crowd your whole life can get you lost, essentially losing your identity...so I don't, I be myself...wether it be 'emo' 'punk' or a 'rebel' or anything of the sort...music is music, life is life, the two go hand in hand. The trouble starts when you put the wrong music with the wrong style...some of you know them as 'posers' we all hate them...no one says that they are a 'poser' themselves, so really we are waging a war against meaningless subjects...and why the hell am I wasting time on this damn site...

First off all, Emo is emotional music and was prolly created because some guy was writting a song and found that it would the way to express his feelings...i mean if ur listening to emo just to be cool, thats just fu*king stupid, i listen to emo because it makes me think and i can really feel it.And ya who cares about the way u dress, u dont have to dress all punk if u wanna listen to emo, what u listen to and what ur style is shouldnt be put in the same category. Its all good though, i guess not everybody thinks he same way but ya if yall wanna listen to a good song: polaroids of polarbears by alexisonfire

Genre of softcore punk music that integrates unenthusiastic melodramatic 17 year olds who dont smile, high pitched overwrought lyrics and inaudible guitar rifts with tight wool sweaters, tighter jeans, itchy scarfs (even in the summer), ripped chucks with favorite bands signature, black square rimmed glasses, and ebony greasy unwashed hair that is required to cover at least 3/5 ths of the face at an angle.

It's called "emo," short for emotional -- music with punk roots but more personal lyrics, sometimes painfully so. And it's catching on.

Some serious fans even have a "look" -- short, greasy hair, dyed black with bangs cut high on the forehead; glasses with thick black frames; thrift-store clothes and chunky black shoes; and makeup, on anyone

For a start.. Your not Emo if your trying to be, stop trying to categorize yourself. Emo, yes does mean emotional but its been changed into a cult thing, the black greasy hair, studded belt, plugs, piercing, thick rimmed glassers, mellow-dramatic people are typically Emo traits. Your music should only affect the type of person you are in certain ways. Don't let it over-rule your life by trying to be something your not!

emo is short for emotional, obviously, emo has nothing to do with music, as bury your ashes said, its just people who are always depressed and the music they listen to (about teen problems) is what is usually considered emo music, pretty much anything pop punk, the most emo band i know is dashboard confessions. and by the way, all those bands are emo to an extent. go to www.somethingdirectory.com to watch a movie on emo. it states it pretty well.

I have no "answers" just opinions."emo is music with emotion" ...im kinda thinking that all music has emotion, regardless of whether or not you like it or agree with it, also emo doesn't mean you "hate life" as some dumb ass put it...its a term for "EMOtional punk"...and yes everyone has their own opinions and ideas so no one shall ever agree, but if you rid your head of everything but the term emotional punk then basically its simple, someone whose emotional, and yes tends to listen to pop-punk, "emo", screamo etc, but not everyone is the same, and yes some people are whiny, fakers, and do "hate" the world, but you can't stereotype everyone like that...and some people get way too far into scenes...I hate emo-core...people are sad, they disappoint me

No, It doesn't really mean you hate life, you might... but thats not what its about. Can someone please tell me how the heck "emo" got turned into such a stupid fashion statement. Looking emo doesn't mean you are emo. If you are emo, you just know. You don't need to ask around, and take surveys. bye.

Emo does not mean that you hate the world, it means that you see life in a more artistic way than most people. (Sugarcult, Death Cab, senses fail, etc are not artistic, they just sound cool).  
Death can be artistic and just because it can be a recurring theme in a lot of emo doesn't mean that emo people are obsessed with death or anything.
A good emo band is My Chemical Romance.  A lot of feeling and emotion behind their songs.  Themes in MCR range from homosexual rape to death and all the way to the reuniting of a long-lost couple.
The new MCR music video is excellent, by the way.  Think Punk/Rock/Emo meets Saving Private Ryan.

They can be happy optimists too...grow up if you think all emo kids do is hate life...and being " straight edge" has nothing to do with music in my opinion. It's a lifestyle. And music its ok to listen to a band and not be exactly like them...

ive been labeled as and emo kid and i believe it means u show lots of negative emotion towards life. the music you listen to is then influenced by your emotions so you listen to what people sometimes call suicide music. Now, sXe is the belief in no underage drinking or smoking, no drug use, and no sex before you're married. I respect sXe but i am not straight edge. My advice is that you be yourself and let no one influence you.

emo is a genre of music. its not just about hating life because all emotion dont revolve around hate. and straight edge has nothing to do with the music you listen to. straight edge means you dont drink/do drugs/smoke sometimes you dont even drink caffeine. while a lot of "scene" kids who listen to hardcore stuff say they are straight edge and may have coined the term along with the emo kids it does not have anything to do with music. so just cause you are emo doesnt mean you are sxe.

Answer by Emma

Rating: Not yet rated Rate this answer: Vote
OK, I'd have to go with the fact of emo not being the music you listen to or the way you dress. EMo is a state of mind. You are simply into emotions. EMo people like to feel the world's pain and like to feel all of it on them. This is why they cut themselves to feel real. NOt all emos are cutters though. SOme emo boys wear girl's pants but not all. So the boys don't nessacarily look like girls. There are so many sterio types surrounded by this but basically it is a branch of punk rock originating from bands in the 80's like Rites of spring. They are just bands with an emotional emphasis. So basically if you are going to determine a band as emo it would be incrediblly subject to what other bands you are relating it to. Basically emo is just another sub scene along with indie, underground, etc. etc.

In conclusion everyone loves a hot, skinny white emo-boy with uberly tight chick pants and horn rimmed glasses.

Emo (an abbreviation of "emotionally-driven Hardcore punk") is a term now broadly used to describe almost any form of guitar-driven alternative rock that expresses emotions beyond traditional punk's limited emotional palette of alienation and rage. It is also used to describe fans of this genre, most commonly teenagers. (e.g., emo kid). The actual term "emo" originated in the mid-1980s D.C. scene, with the band Rites of Spring, as well as bands such as Fugazi, Moss Icon, and Antioch Arrow.

Yeah, first off, as others have said; those bands aren't emo. Greenday'snew album is emo. A person who is emo is basically someone who is intrigued by people who have serious issues, and feel the need to mimic their emotions. They claim to be individuals when they all dress the same. How can you claim to have your own style when over half your wardrobe comes from Hot Topic?
AS for being "straight edge" as emo kids have affectionately dubbed their trend, it's not emo, just... an intelligent decision. Of course, I'm not going to lecture any drug users because it would be a waste of everyone's time.
The emo trend is the worst thing to happen to American society since McCarthyism and parachute pants.

I think u need to find out the meaning of emo and you should find your own way.. What you like and shouldn't label it. If it's what you like then it shouldn't matter what kind of style it is or you are.

ok... i dont exactly know what sXe is... but i do know that to me emo kids are the kids who sometimes where tight jeans, have that goofy hair (which i think is really hott), have the tight band shirts, and are pretty much the funny kids of the school. i dont know exactly what the 'real' stereotype for "emo" is, but thats what i think it is, and i like it. i think that if you think those bands are emo then they are because things are changing and the meaning of emo isn't the same anymore. just like the style of alternative rock has changed over the years, so do other styles. and emo has been a style since the 80's and now bands that wouldn't have been labeled emo in the 80's are being labeled that now.

ok first off sxe is no drugs no alcohal and no purmiscuis/casual sex it was thought up origonaly by the hardcore band minor threat. it came out of the hardcore scene. emo on the other hand is and emotional version of hardcore punk. the bands are ussualy, rites of spring, embrace, sunny day realastate, coheed and cambria, boys night out, the used, thursday and many others. as for the emo style in my eyes there is none its just music but if u think emo as a label u should  idealisticaly have black hair, tight shirts and tight pants and chucks, and u have a very porr out look on life. ure basicaly a scene kid ( witch is not bad im a scene kid my self or acording to shallow ppl)so i other word u can be emo and sxe but just so u kno they have nothing to do with each other. other than they came out of the hardcore style of music.

so, emo is music with emotion. and the lable emo, its kinda like a manic depressive cycle....or thats the way i see it. cause one is emotional. but, almost a bit too emotional, like," im going to cut myself because my life sucks, but i want people to know." or else its like one is extremely happy. its emotions. most "emo" music though, is about "her" or "him", you know, the one you left for no reason or the one that left you. but whatever, more corporations are just steriotyping emo. so beileve what you want to.

to be honest you are all going on about styles of music which have existed for years without being labelled Emo, Indie, Lovepunk or whatever you feel you need to pigeonhole everything.  Better to be an individual than a follower and you are all to worried that you may not fit into the right camp.

emo is unreal music, just cause you listen to it, it doesn't make you psycho or depressed about life. It is a refreshing change from rap, pop, country, heavy metal etc.  Don't get me wrong I love rap, country, the odd pop etc.  But emo is so interesting and different, if you are having a bad day, and you feel like nothing is going your way, emo is a good sound to vent to, I can't help but love it's sound, groups like Hawthorne Heights, senses fail, funeral for a friend, story of the year, sic transit gloria, crossfade, etc. If people feel like dressing up like a "hardcore emo rocker" just giv'r, it's your choice, if thats who you think you are, then go for it!  By the way guys, emo stands for 'EMOtional forms of rock or punk'

First of all, you don't fully understand emo music unless you experience playing it. It is an art, not a label. Goth is a label. Emo is just another form of music. Posers who wear the older rock shirts, but don't seem to understand who they are, aren't in any way emo.

Don't fight about whats emo and whats not. check this page out: http://www.last.fm/tag/emo   i'msorry to say this but, all the bands on that page are emo today. exept blink 182. The emo we like to call emo are oldschool emo today. that kind of emo doesn't exist anymore, so he is actually right about saying that deathcab o senses fail are emo becuase today people think they are. really i would say that their punk or indie or alternativ ow whatever but emo music today doesn't exist. So the results of all this is that there is no emo today only Mainstream emo. and that emo is not real oldshool emo.. sorry

Im an 15 year old emo chick and im happy with it , I no i am because I feel it and nobody has to tell me i am. Emo is how u feel not how u look or I act, i couldnt name more than 10 emo bands but I stil am an emo I just like what i like. I think if your lookin for a reason to be emo your just wanting to change and not actualy feeling the emo thing. love u blackhearted x x x x

I believe that there are soo many insights on the term emo. it is a subculture and a musical genre also seen as punk/rock hardcore, an abbreviation to the term emotional.... whatever! I am currently doing an assignment on the origins of emo and basically, the theme of the discussion is that no matter what, the emo insights will always be contraversial and to jus tenjoy what you listen to and you can classify it into whatever genre you feel like and to not listen to something just because it is "in".   like come on... i still listen to aqua!

Caitii,

you're not emo, straight edge, hardcore or even gangster.
you're Caitii. Listening to a certain " type " of music doesn't neccessarily lable the person.

These idiots have no clue what sXe music is. Ha I laugh at their arguing over nothing.

You can't find out what emo/sXe/hXc means on the internet for there is no definition.

being straightedge means living life fully and without anything that's gonna weigh you down. this is anything that can be addicting or cause you not to focus. emo kids are all whiney about life, so therefore it's impossible to be emo and straightedge. this is because of the fact that they let their emotions control them, which is very much like having cigarettes or sex or drugs or alcohol control you.

ok kids, lets calm down now. who really cares if your emo or punk or goth even, it shouldent really matter, those are just mindless labels that people are given for the styles and music they are into. so yeah, lets all just grow up, stop labeling each other, and just appreciate music and not care about who else is listening to it.

sXe is Straight Edge. Started by Minor Threat. Back in the day, which was a Wednesday, by the way, bouncers at shows would mark and X on people who are under age. People who are Straight Edge often, even if over legal age of drinking, mark X's on their arms. It basically means, don't smoke, don't drink, don't screw. <3

Like:
My chemical romance, Taking back sunday, AFI, H.I.M, Underoath, Flyleaf, Paramore

and stuff like that, People have their own opinions it just depends what people want to believe I guess

i think that "emo" is that you feel like you have no reason at all to live and some
people feel like they should just cut their selves to make them feel better or just carve  a boys name or a girls name so they wont wont forget it or something.

Lets get things clear kids.

I'm not emo, nor have I ever been emo nor will I ever be emo. However, I'm tired of the misconception of the term emo. The term "emo" is not short for "emotional" as it is commonly misconstrued to be. It is actually short for "emotive metal".

Emo started in the mid 1980's as a spawn off of hardcore punk and indie rock. Emo spawned into a few subgenres, including hardcore emo, emo violence and screamo. Emo had sporadic popularity throughout the late 80's through the 90's and started popularizing in 2000.

Not all music is "emo", as is assumed by some. Yes, most music does display emotion, but Emo music attempts to authentically convey "raw human emotions". This is done in a very imbecilic manner, usually featuring the lead singer falling to their knees and screaming or crying on stage, and from what it sounds like, in the studio.

"Emo" became a taunting term that punks used to insult each other. And since then, has become a loosely defined stereotype instead of a specific genre of music, and if there's anything I hate, it's a word becoming undefining... Like gay or fag.

I'm not defending people of the emo culture, because I hate them. I'm just educating people who are mislead, of course, 90% of the people who will read this will have to have some argument. So if you're one of those, shut up. I don't need to know of your inutile existence.
