I don't which is funnier, barrel scraping journos or the kids who listen to this music.
It just sounds so stupid.
Emo's a tradition in this household
I like the bit about being a teenager is much harder nowdays...really?? Is it? I wonder how the teenagers felt when they were drafted to fight in wars etc. I'm pretty sure there were a lot more protest marches in the 60s, 70s and 80s than there are now. Is it not that Teenagers are far more apathetic these days? And 'wallowing' is easier to do in our society than before? Maybe not.
I don't know what this has to do with emo. I'm over 25, I don't mind tidying my bedroom and I get on with my parents. I don't understand.
I didn't mean to write Teenagers and not teenagers. I wasn't referring to the band. K?
You just don't get it.
the definition of "cringe"!
does 'po-faced' mean exactly.
I've never actually known.
is an archaic name for a chamber-pot, i believe
for a retarded alien-like creature that lives in a house in a hill with their friends tinky winky, laa laa and dipsy.
I'd much rather be a chamber pot.
means serious. From 'poker faced' I believe.
why do they use Young hearts run free as an example of a cheery song? It's about getting fucked over by everyone you care about. That's totally emo.
Nobody is emo anymore surely?
dyed down about 2 years ago?
I remember in around 2004, 05, 06 everywhere you went you would see a group of teenagers wearing black skinny jeans, band t-shirts, the black swept hair etc. Nowadays they seem far less common, or is it me being more oblivious now?
To me it seems that the media have jumped on this emo controversy a bit late, i feel.
"My son listened to emo and now he's dead.
Ban this sick filth!"
Fingers crossed it gets approved.
i hope it does
except laugh heartily at everybody involved* - crap journalism, crap music, crap clothes, hilarious comparisons to The Smiths, actually mistaking this 'genre' for something worthwhile. Gah, I dunno...
*disclaimer - except the families and friends of the deceased
and they wanted to cling, but there was nothing to cling to."
i organised a similar Romo March in 1996 but only myself and the bass player from Minty turned up.
I thought emo meant emotive music? I seem to remember bands like Hundred Reasons being labelled emo back in 2001 by the NME. Now it seems to have become a term for American soft girlie 'rock' and 15 yr old boys with guyliner (I hate that term, sorry). Break it down for me.
-particularly as my black eye makes it look as though I'm wearing it.
I'm tempted to go on the march and show that I'm down with the two years out of date kids.
