Naw, with clothing style, and more superficial things its good to do things that kinda set you apart, AS LONG AS YOUR INTO IT, for real. If your doing it just for the sake of standing out then your missing the purpose of the lesson. Being PUNK or whatnot, itsnt about being different as much as its about being true to yourself, and not caing what anyone else thinks. With something like music, dont choose not to like a song just because its outside of your normal listening range,(hXc punk, metal whatever) you should judge it for yourself and see if you yourself can get into the music. Thats why i listen to such a wide variety of music. Im most farmiliar with punk and electronic, but i also really dont mind listening to something like spanish guitar, or latin music, and even some classical just because it hooks me in and i like it.

And yes emo is becomeing a fad, but thats no reason to retreat into further musical obscurity. Just like it for what it is, dont mind others. If your true to yourself, I find theres no way you CANT be happy.

First of all, i thought ive made it clear that im not into this stuff just to be different,but being different is important as well, but again, not the only reason im into what im into, ive said that i truly do love this music a couple times now .. second, i dont even dress punk, and third, what does hXc mean? People seem to twist words around a lot in this forum..

hXc is an abbreviation for Hardcore, kinda of like sXe meaning straight edge.

Im not accusing you or anyone else, but I did hear someone say something like "so now im only going to listen to hardcore because all the jocks are listening to emo" or something. I just personally think thats not the point.

seriously though half the stuff thats said are just peoples opinions, no one going to hold anything against you. its all pretty rhetorical.

If everybody is trying to be an individual, is it really that individual? Wear what you want, listen to what you want, not to stand out, but to be happy. I'm a surfer, and living by the beach I see people all the time with their hotline (local surf shop) etc shirts on....I don't care. I'm not trying to stand out. It's who I am, and it's who I'm happy with.

^ nice job, I completely agree. I really don't understand what the big deal is about new people getting into the music. How do you know why they are at the concerts? give them the benefit of the doubt, they are most likely there because they heard the music, and they liked it. why else would they pay money for a concert ticket and spend their time to see them play live? and anyways, they're ultimately just supporting the band, giving them more exposure, and helping them out financially, so shouldn't you be glad that more people are starting to like the music that you're into?

I started listening to this music because I love it, but also because it was different a couple years ago, and now it seems like everyone has to listen to it. I feel like im losing my individuality in a way, which isnt feeling good.. I just wanted to know what bands/corporations made the music I know and love the fad...
You're a real prize idiot you are. You're losing your individuality, yeah, what a typical crying-out-for-attention-teenager rant that is. Your individuality is based on your physical appearance, and your personality - not by how you dress and what you listen to. How the hell does a few more people in the emo scene make you lose your individuality? Here's a newsflash buddy: You were never an individual in the first place. Because I'm sure even at the start there was more than 1 emo fan.

Emo isn't "the fad" and never has been. If some "preppy" girls and guys want to listen to Emo then that's their choice. If you don't like it, tough ****, it's what you get for thinking that people who like certain music will dress a certain way.

I find it laughable that you have judged the popularity of the scene, by looking at the way a few peeps at a few concerts dress. I also find it laughable that you've managed to estimate the number of emo songs these people have listened to, also by the way they dress.

Does dress code tell you SO much about a person that you even know what music they like, and how many tunes they've listened to in X genre?

I mean, why should it piss you off so much that these so called "preppy" people are listening to emo? Surely you have something in common, a mutual love of Emo? I mean why do you have to assume that the only reason these "preppy" people like ANYTHING at all is because it's "cool" to like it?

Ugh you're such an ignorant whingy bitch you really are.
