    Muaha, this should be a fun one. I've been arguing with my friends for weeks now about exactly what emo is. I'm convinced that nobody really knows, but it does have something to do with music, fashion, and state-of-mind. Did it spawn from punk and hardcore? Is it always about love? Is Chris Carrabba the unofficial poster-boy? What do you think?

    definition of emo

    all i know is that emo is short for emotional. these punk bands show more class and emotion to their music. i think a lot of their songs make you connect, too.

    I like dashboard confessional. Haven't really heard much emo.
