Originally emo was just a slightly more emotional acoustic music (death cab for cutie).
It's now more like goths trying to be cute. With horid tutu's and choppy bangs.
Supposedly ironic with their morbid "cute" things.
It's Bad whiney music with beautiful boys and emotional/angry choruses. The girls all think they're bi, the boys wished they were half into girls.
