What is It?!?!

This has been bugging me for a while. What the hell is "emo"?! It makes no sense! I don't know what it is?! I've heard the word being used in sentences, being used as a name for a type of music, and all sorts of other weird locations.

ARG!!!

It's basically the angsty, "emo"tional... anything. People can be emo, music can be emo, and so on. There's not really a solid classification for it, but basically, if it's whiny or annoying (usually whiny and annoying), then it's usually labeled as emo.

I've never really understood it, either. :P

I don't know if it helps...but the opening theme to Lain ('Duvet' by Boa) has been described as extremely emo...

EMOtional...makes sense I guess...I like that sort of that music^^

Juverna basically nailed it. I use it to mean whiny, bizatchy, annoying, irratic... In music to me it means moody, compaining. Basically all over emotional, over dramatic... etc.

I suppose that's probably the only way I'm really going to figure out what it is... Thanks for the tip...

Thats ironic. By the way you desribe "emo" sounds like you are complaining about it yourselves...

I'm not so much complaining as such. I would put it closer to frustration. I keep hearing that word tossed around and I have no idea what it means.
