Why do people always say Emo needs to be left in 2007 or 2008?

I do not understand why people say that to me. At school, on the streets and on the internet sometimes.
Why stay in 2007 or 08?

  • Goth, emo, punk. . . there are all forms of rebellious dress, hairstyles, and behavior. . . that appeal to young people who are insecure in their identities and are desperately in search of something that will give them a sense of belonging and identity. In the 1950's, kids became beatniks. In the 1960's and 70's, they became hippies. There is nothing new here, except that beatniks and hippies did not put metal things through their nose or genitals.

  • When kids were younger and Emo had it's hay day, the style was what it was due to media exposure and the young age of those who identified with it. Those kids ended up growing up and turned in to "scene kids" then later, hipsters. the real Hipsters were the Emo's of the 2000's... The others simply copied their new style. You can usually tell by who have spacers, tattoos and piercings which ones pioneered the style.

    As you know, I am a metal head who looks nothing like the typical metal heads, I hate emo music, but I like the emo style on girls, and wouldn't mind finding myself one to love.

    Thankfully tattoos and piercings are becoming more and more acceptable and soon it won't be any inconvenience at all in the business world. Anyone telling you otherwise is ignorant, and old-world minded.

    No doubt, you will grow up and look much more mature in your style, no one in their 30's who looks like an emo is taken seriously, tattoos or not. It is simply a childish style (unless you are in a band travelling the world of course), but most likely, you will change your mind about it too at some point, so just have fun with it now and let your style develop organically, you look great :)

  • I think all these things are self expression and it is up to the person themselves how they lead their life.

    • Lol. I just mean why is it the year 2007 or 08 that they say go back to

    • Because that's the last year emos were around.

      For example, the last true pop PUNK Fall Out Boy album was made in 2007.
      Same with MCR but in 2006.
      Same with Panic! At the Disco kinda.

      I didn't even look it up til after I wrote the above, but apparently Wikipedia agrees with me
      en.wikipedia.org/.../Emo

      Apparently there's some sort of revival now though?

  • yo keep being emo, or whatever else you want to be, its cause they swaggots and wear geometric/indian clothes listen to this too (you won't like it cus u emo)

  • Because a lot of you emos are turning to claiming that you have supernatural powers or that you're Satanists (instead of ACTUALLY being Satanists) in order to stand out.

    • Lol I guess I was to young to remember seeing emo, also lived in small country town, so there might not have been any

    • It was a big thing. It was also a fashionable to cut yourself (sideways, not along).

  • A lot of people go through an "emo" phase in high school, and then years later look back on themselves in old photos and cringe.

  • Thats when Emos were at their peek. I used to see emos everywhere, I guess those ones all grew up and dress normal now, so they prob say that because you're late on the emo trend. At the end of that day do what makes you happy. In 2008 I wasn't in high school, but in my high school days I was punk. There's always been the weird kids, we never go away.

  • Maybe they think it's trashy and don't want to see it...
    But why would they comment at all? You do what you want to do. If you feel comfortable - it's who you are.

  • they probably say that because it's not "cool" but if you love how you look then that's all that matters. if everyone looked the same in this world then it would be boring so don't let that negativity put you down

  • It's an older term that doesn't really have much meaning anymore. People who are actually what you call "emo", could be legitimately depressed and the term emo could be offensive to them.
