Root: Emo - Short for Emotional (Emotional Rock, Emotional Punk, Emotion Core)
Kid - not quite a child, not yet an adult

A member of a once-sub-culture born after the death of punk and the rise of power-pop - which has become the latest pop culture. Its identity and entity exist in the ideas that no one understands the emo kid quite like "this" music singer does. Buys effeminate clothing at Hot Topic, sometimes salvation army lends a hand, or takes hand-me-downs.

Proof of these "emo kids" being the current pop culture exist in the numbers. Hot Topic sells more merchandise per square foot than Walmart (The retail store for 90% of the other American cultures combined).

Despite numbers and despite proof, these subjects consider themselves unique, misunderstood, and unidentifiable.

Emo kids rely on their parents to feed, clothe, and shelter them in most cases, yet resent any advice or love broadcast from them (which, sadly, such love is usually the cure for this ailment). Although currently large in numbers and have a stable habitat on myspace.com, the emo kids will become a quickly dying breed, simply because brooding, listening to music, depression, and angst do not make for self-sustainence nor proper job skills.
The emo kid at the mall is waiting for his mom to pick him up. He just stopped by Hot Topic to return his studded gloves and chick pants. He will blog about this on myspace when he gets home.

A music genre and scene derived from the hardcore punk movement. This wishy washy form of music and its trendy pseudo cool fans immerse them selves in misery and despair to generate the image of a deep feeling,deep thinking individual, when in fact they are just dumb rich kids looking for attenttion.
Emo kids dont just look like dorks, they are dorks.

A kid who claims to be in touch with his emotions but is only in touch with one: misery. They all act depressed, tend to wear glasses with no lenses, and claim that nobody understands them. Of course we understand you, your a wuss, there you go.

Kids who convince themselves that life is horrible. Often, they will cut themselves AND draw on bruises to make it look like NOT ONLY did they cut themselves but daddy beat them, when in reality they're spending his money on all the emo clothes and the studded belt. They turned the studded belt, which used to be in the domain of metal, into almost an embarrassment. often just want attention and sex.
As a funny after thought, there used to be no emo kids, just "Emo" as an insult from Hardcore kids. Not to be confused with punk or hardcore.
There are two types of emo kids: Dark and Bright
Dark emo kids often have really dark clothing, really dark eyes, and don't talk a lot. They are truly anti-social, might be quite content not having friends, and are truly introverted. Don't try to befriend them, you'll fail miserably.
Bright emo kids are the most poseur kids ever. Generally, they have great lives in giant suburban homes and are incredibly social, but use the emo movement as a ruse to get attention. They love to complain about every little thing that's wrong with them, and if you try to socialize with them and you're not another bright emo kid, you will instantly be inundated with bullshit. Generally, they tend to be of the more popular kind, and are the females of this type can grow to be quite annoying, and the men can grow to be quite frustrating as you try to convince them that their lives don't suck.
Damn, look at Kate! The year's almost over and she still hasn't a single friend!
Bright emo kid: *cry* will you listen to my poem? I wrote it last night after my dad beat me. *cry*
Me: No. Can I see your arm? *rubs off ink* your dad didn't beat you.
Bright emo kid (in frustration): Ow, that hurt! That's a bruise! *cry*
Me: No it isn't. I just wiped it off. *Makes angry faic* Don't lie to me man.
