    the only funny thing is that no one of these "emo"-people has a clue what "emo" really is...this is all as "emo" as As I Lay Dying are "Hardcore".

    ^(two posts up)^ Wow, that's really pathetic. No offense, but I don't understand having that much hatred for the way someone dresses and acts. They're not hurting anyone, and they're extremely easy to ignore.

    This is as pathetic as 80s metalheads hating grunge kids.

    Or athletes hating metalheads, plastics hating goths, etc.

    I couldn't care less for the emo scene. I don't even hate the music. It's certainly not my favorite genre, but it's much better than hip hop and the trends that showed up around here in the 90's (when there were no rock radio stations whatsoever - sadly, a lot different than US). If I were younger, I'd probably like emo. I can't blame them.

    In fact, I play soccer every so often with emos, metalheads, and yuppies, all getting along pretty fine. Hating someone because of that seems either childish or fascist, depending on your age.

    :agreed: I actually like quite a few emo bands/songs. There's some really solid songwriting in there.

    Some people just can't handle anything that's not angry/dark/heavy sounding.

    I think emo kids are dumb as shit, and they look retarded too. I hate the music, and I can in no way respect them as a human being. However, I don't go emo hunting or whatever. I leave them alone, and I hope they leave me alone.

    I mean, some people might think the same about regular metal heads (like me). I mean, I have the stereo typical long hair, wear band shirts, leather jacket, etc. But I don't try to act tough and angry about everything all the time like a lot of metal heads, and I think the people here who've met me would agree with me.

    i hate it when you meet other metal heads and they treat you like you arent one too. just because a guy doesnt have long hair or tatoos doesnt mean shit. i think the most metal thing you can do is look normal.

    I might not treat someone who doesn't look metal like a metal head but once I realize they can keep up in a conversation about it, I could care less. I just hate the way I look with short hair, and death/black metal shirts are bad ass :lol:

    Well, it is a guy, and the poster wasn't implying otherwise.

    i just neg rep'd you, because of this your last post. if you are that childish that you have to throw "fuck emos" or something around, you should be aware that this MAY offend someone. and if you tell someone to fuck off and are than not able to handle some neg rep...well, than my friend you got a lot to learn.

    negrep me for this if you want.


    EDIT: just to make it clear - i like to make fun of, for example, emo-looks etc. too, but i can take it if someone then would start bridling.

    'hardcore dancing' at shows = gay. If you want to show your 'wikkid cool moves' then take dancing lessons and impress your mum. Don't be such a gimp and jump around like a wounded monkey who needs a shit.

    Now excuse me, I have to shave my chest and legs and comb over my hair for the photoshoot in front of my mums mirror tomorrow morning.

    Dude, all that means is you're a scene kid... "yeah man, it totally has some form of metal and is great to mosh to..." Neg-rep for denial and being an ass.

    That said, i dont particularly like the people, and i think it is because a lot of them are young and have that 'holier than thou' attitude towards everyone else, but i dont go out of my way to insult/hurt/generally be a tosser towards them. Besides, i like some of the music, and there is nothing more stupid than not listening to a type of music because of the kind of 'image' you think it gives you. Fuck that.

    I listen because i like, and hopefully other people do the same :) Thats all id want if i was actually selling records: People who like my music will listen.

    As for this, thats just juvenile. Grow up, stop being a tool, and get the fuck over it.
