emo t-shirt by csj89 @ Design By Humans

I remember when emo kids used to dress in all black, with a bit more black on the side, and spent their days staring glumly at the floor. Nowadays they’re all about the crazy-haircuts and dressing in neon. Whatever happened to emo kids actually being emo?

Well, that intro certainly made me feel old, but csj89 (the tees designer) has helpfully explained in tag cloud form exactly what emo is today:

emu bird, blade, chucks, black square rimmed glasses, finding fish, skate shoes, familiar puppet, skulls, crying, pills, social networks, makeup, nailpolish, tear, eyeshadow, guyliner, guitar, broken hearts, vinyl, piercings, mascara, stab, online journals, bleed, old school video games, butterflies, girly jeans, poetry, diary, roses, and rainbows.

Got it, cool, now there’s no need to people to post in forums about what emo is. Funnily enough, I wouldn’t think of this tee as emo, which was probably the point, its funny, its irreverent, and most importantly, it lets us know that razor blades are fun, and that’s a message we can all get behind.

    yup, scenesters have replaced emo kids. the best part is that they are more obnoxious and lame than emo kids. emo kids where just quiet and listened to mediocre music. scenesters are the kids who make you want to stop listening to music.
