What's an emo? According to kid-authored excerpts from Urban Dictionary, emos "don't care what ppl think," "like a good band whether they're on mtv or not," are "usually emotional...don't want to make their feelings public and end up expressing mainly through poetry or songs." Oh, and they supposedly buy a lot of stuff at Hot Topic.
Depending on the kid you ask, being an emo can be good or bad - basically, the same as being a prep or a goth or any other type can. And of course, like any other social type, there are "true" ones and "wannabes."
Kids are already tough enough on other kids, so we're not judging anyone who thinks they might be an emo. It's a subjective term, but we can probably agree: emo is about how we're feeling and how we express that. Sounds pretty human to us. Want to know if you're an emo? Take the tests in this section now!
