As has been stated, I think the whole reason its so looked down on is because its so trendy. You can say the same thing about pop-punk (although it seems to be dying out). I enjoy "emo" music, but only for a short while, due to the fact it all really sounds the same to me.

I think there is a sterotype of emo.
Where I live there used to be a group of 'goths' or whatever who hung out on a wall, now there are quite a few 'emo' kids and whenever the emo kids come over they're like 'ew.die'
It's almost like there was a thing about chavs...is happening to 'emos'
I'm nowhere near emo. but i listen to some of the music.
Has anyone seen any videos/heard songs about 'emo kids' ? It's quite funny and streotypical...

Yes.

You can't be an emo kid, because you can't be a genre of music.

Emo = Emotional Hardcore.

The whole "emo" fashion thing is just a general misconception thrown around the media as a sort of brand recognition for the new wave of popcore/pop-rock bands that scream a little bit. The true emo bands have done a good job avoiding this whole scene emergence by staying underground and true to the guidelines that defined emo back when bands like Embrace, Rites of Spring, and Fugazi were creating the genre. This whole fashionxcore scene is just a bunch of untalented bands that are feeding off of kids emotions for a profit.

An emo-goth fight. I'm imagining that right now, and I have to admit, it's incredibly funny.

I don't understand the belief that bands have to stay underground in order to be "true". Just because a band is popular doesn't mean that it has sold out or the music is terrible. Granted, some bands do sell out, some bands are formed just because of trends, and some bands are just plain terrible but are marketed heavely enough that they become "good".

If a genre evolves, that does not make it wrong or sold out (at least in my opinion). It seems like the fans of this type of music are ruining it for alot of people, but I don't see that the music itself is to blame. Some bands do support the whole trendy fashion theme, but then again, so do alot of other genres.

If the fans of emo (whatever era you are speaking of) bother you, don't pay so much attention to them. Its about the music, and by paying attention to their fashion and giving it feedback (whether good or bad), you are giving them exactly what they want.

I'm not saying that staying true to a genre goes along with staying underground, but a majority of the bands that actually represent emo remain underground because they don't have the advertising to appeal to the majority of the public. They aren't marketable. As time goes on, genre's will evolve, but what is advertised currently as emo doesn't even share characteristics with it's origins. It's made up by a bunch of people who had no understanding of it to begin with.

I personally don't have a problem with emos but the ones that are supposedly emo that I know are well...STUPID. They complain about stupid things and won't shut up and they...dear God it pisses me off. I try to talk to them and the complain and I'm not very well educated in the Emo music Genre but I really doubt that Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance and Hawthorne Hights are what real emo is.

All those bands arn;t emo. They are pop. I "dislike" emo kids. Most of them are old elementary nerds that no one like so they try to stand out and become noticable. W/e I just ignore most of them. It's kind of stupid.
