Default Emo "In Thing To Do"

How long and why has EMO been the cool thing to do? I m starting to see all of these preppy girls and guys at concerts and local shows who have probably only listened to about 10 EMO songs in there life, its kinda sad.... 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...

um and girls don't have feelings, broken hearts, shattered lives, angst? i feel it, just because a guy is singing a song about a girl it doesn't mean that i can't receive some sort of emotional therepy and enjoyment from it.
..even though most of the lyrics in songs are very um, demening (sp?) and um well threatening, almost. it is somehow theriputic to imagine a guy having just as much pain as i am and i hope that it is burning just as bad in his stomach as it is in mine.. and that is why girls are "into it"

We arent being sexist or anything Star, when I said preppy girls, I added guys in there too because they do it as well... I just hate how everyone is into it now because I got into it to be DIFFERENT, but now i cant be, no matter if i was into it before it was cool, it makes no difference... lol damn Franco Unamerican is a good song, ive listened to it like 20 times tonight, maybe thats what ill do now, just get into hardcore punk since i like that too , and it will probably never get too popular just because of its raw sound

Yea sorry if I came of sounding like a biggot star. I was just trying to say that that is why the preppy guys have turned to it now I just dont know why preppy girls have all of the sudden, some of my best friends are emo girls and I know they are filled with just as much emotion and angst, their writing is incredible so I wasnt being sexist, sorry.

Im not saying that all girls or friends whoever are being posers, its one thing if they are into the emo scene because they truly love it, but its another if they are into it because its the fad right now... That=POSERS and people who are pissing me off, i dunno what it is, but i would never want to be in the popular crowd, or even really liked by them , im not anit-social or anything, i have my own ppl i hang out with, and i dont wanna be friends with people who cant be true to themselves or whatever you wanna call it.

If you listen to a certain type of music just to be "original" than you aren't listening for the right reasons. You should listen to music because you love it, because you can relate, but not to stand out from people.

I do love it, ive already said that a couple of times, but I think doing your own thing is another reason to listen to certain types of music ya know?
