yes because all emo songs are about 'pain' and they all wear scarfs. damn you people!

personally, i would define emo as just being a more emotional version of punk. it can range from acoustic stuff to quite loud songs with screaming. and not all songs have to be about breaking up with girls and whatever.

Like, some scream, have really depressing lyrics, like, REALLY DEPRESSING, and they dress with like scarfs even when its warm, and pants really low, so you can see your bumcrack, and have straight down bowlhead-hair generally. Thats what I define emo as anyway B)

So a bit like goth but without all the black and power ballads then?

I'm still no closer to finding out what emo actually is - but then again I still can't figure out the difference between rock and rock n roll.

weezer were the first well known 'emo' band (although are they really emo? some aspects of them might be but in general i don't think they are) but they weren't the first emo band.

ian mackaye coined the term emo-core in an interview in 1985 and that's where it all pretty much started from. the first real emo bands were embrace (no, not THAT one) and rites of spring.

*holds head in hands - i can't believe i know all that....*

Dont u have to be straight edge to be emo??

no, but a lot of emo kids have stolen that attitude from the hardcore guys.
