I chose alternative/indie, but I don't like when people purposely sit there like, "I'm going to be punk." It's fine to dress that way, but trying to fit a label really limits you. You shouldn't have to put that much effort into being you.
I don't mean to preach, but I just had this discussion with my cousin who decided that he's going to be gothic so people won't label him. . .very hypocritical, if you ask me.
Sometimes emo guys can be cute, but I always think they're trying to hard for their look lol. I prefer a mix between metal and alternative. Indie guys are usually a bit unique and metal kind of adds an edge to the look. And I just like metal so its a bonus when a guy's into it too lol
