    wowww....yeah what fancyclad said, and the "internet sources" they cited, well, all of those were jokes mocking emos lol. Also, they talked about it like it was some sort of disease or infection or something.
    Theres nothing more i hate than generalizing, paranoid parents who think they understand what is going on.
    and for the record I cherish everyday of my life, i`m defiantly not emo

    I love how they nonchalantly pass off not knowing about emos before it grew to this number. They act as if emos have so cleverly avoided detection, like an underground crime syndicate. Apparently, I`m arriving at the conclusion that emos are the Mafia

    I think this was blown out of proportion.

    Mozzle, this just shows how mainstream media takes time to adjust to what`s really going on. Btw, what`s wrong with being emo? Emo is just a fad with strong belief which may lead to an individual who`s influenced by it to suicide. Like hip-hop for example, you adopt the slang dialect and clothes. It`s all just coporate bullpoo.

    Yeah,The things are damn hard to train, If you don`t give them at least 2 hours of mcr and crying a day, Or don`t let them check their myspace frequently enough, They tend to start running into the electrified barb-wire fence, Killing themselves, And losing any chance making profit off that emo in the process. If you manage to raise one into adulthood they tend to go for 5x what you bought them for, Simply because emos surviving that long is a rarity.

    Wait, What?

    I agree with you Trinah, My chemical romance is not at all emo. In the beginning of their career they couldn’t even play some gigs because they weren`t emo enough, and now there the first band everyone thinks of when they hear emo. It`s disgusting; this is a great band just trying to make a difference and now their associated with suicidal teens... sorry im kind of rambling now it`s just really annoying how they were the first band plaid and all.

    The silly thing is the whole emo thing has become a bit of a joke yet they are interpreting it literally. Seriously, their internet `sources` are probably whatever came up in their Google search for emo but hey, with a little sensationalism, you can turn an emo parody quiz in to A TEENAGE CREATED QUIZ WHERE ONE OF THE OPTIONS IS "YOUR HEART WAS BROKEN AT BIRTH".

    Seriously, I listen to My Chemical Tightpants and I`m not emo and if they ever bothered looking in to the Marvel backstory, Spider-Man didn`t become emo in the third movie, he was under the effect of the Symbiote who enhanced his whole anger thing he had going on after the breakup with MJ. The fact he wore black and had a fringe MUST mean he`s an emo right?

    that was a terrible splice of AFI`s silver and cold...

    and emo has been around for a long time...thinking back i went to school with people who wore black and cut their wrists and this was back in late 90`s before the term "emo" was big. but most of th people on this site are either <18 or not have any kids over the age of 5 SO this report is like, "duh" but for some parents, this is a big eye opener...

    Not necessarily true as there are many sub-genres of Goths. But i`m sure you already knew that being one and all.

    ...okay, no. This is just f***ed up. `I am not afraid to keep on living.` -MCR (my favorite ever band)/the beginning of this `news` report. How is that emo? None of the bands listed in this report are emo. Hm, I guess that just because your hair is black, you`re instantly emo. And that song that talked about slitting wrists and whatnot? That was a parody song. I admit, kids shouldn`t be cutting themselves, but come on... this just went a tad bit overboard, no? They`re treating emo like it`s some sort of incredibly contagious and awful disease. I could rant all day (believe me, I could.) but I`ll stop here, for now.

    I doubt that kid they showed really had any problems. True cutters try to hide their cuts, not show the world. And I would know, I used to cut. I still don`t belive in "emo". Emo is a fashion statement, not a disease or anything. Kids who are dumb enough to cut just to look emo are just plain stupid. There are kids out there with real problems who cut for REAL reasons, who have REAL depression, and REAL pain, and your dumb little outfits make them look invisible. Some people would die to have just one happy day in their lives, and you`re happy but you dress up just to look sad?
    I have depression, I know what it`s like.
    But I hate "emo" kids.

    HOw did this ever go on the air? There are so many things wrong with this report I`m not that suprised the old chastised woman who made this is working for Utah local news.

    First off, the reasearch is a simple google search. The websites are total poo, hell, they even put wikipedia on there. I don`t know if they`re just out of touch. but the first thing a teacher will tell you is that he will rip your balls and feed them to his dominatrix wife if you use wiki as a source. The interviews were pretty weak as well. Every responder said pretty much the same thing, but to spice it up a bit they asked a couple of old ladies, who then asked theur children who then agve them the exact same, stereotypical answer.

    The last kid they got wasn`t much of an emo either. He didn`t front like you would expect a guy thats really into it to be, and he was just plain bum. Actually he would be quite close to the definition of an emo because helooks like a social outcast (ugly friend, bad hygiene adn cl

    If you`d added Hardcore in, you would`ve been right.

    I like how everyone seems surprised that the news reporters were pretty much talking out of their asses. I dunno about you guys, but i expected them to not have a clue of what they were talking about, and trying to explain it with "sources" like those was only expected as well.

    Anyways, it`s hard to tell a true emo anymore, since tons of people like to look emo, but not neccessarily be emo. I have a friend who likes the emo look, but she is nowhere near emo status. She`s waaay to optimistic to be emo. The "culture" of "emo". I don`t know if emo deserves to be considered a culture, ever. It`s just a bunch of punk kids who whine a lot about life sucking and life being unfair. I don`t really mean to offend any actual "emos" out there, but seriously, suck it up people. Life`s not fair, it never will be; crying isn`t gonna help you.

    Ok, first off tot he news reporters "get your head out your asses" and stop acting like this just began yesterday, there is nothing weird differentor more depressing about these teens than there have been in any other era. Infact inthe 60`s -70`s everyone said kids "hippies" weer going crazy and killing them selfs and going crazy with acid and coke, then in the ear ly 80`s you had the "the Cure" and Depedhe Mode the look id very similar to "emo" and so is the meotion in the music so basically emo is a rip off of that generation. Then at one point anyone that listened to Judas priest or black sabbath was considered a suicidal , devil worshipper, sohere is it is, another fad, another stage thats teens are going through to express themselves, we all had our own ways of doing it at one point, and if it is more than a fad and your kids does have an issue, it`s pretty sad if you need a 2nd rate news source to alert you about try talking to your kids on

    The other day, this emo/punk/ whatever, kid came up to me and said she could levitate. WTF? So I says do it, she replied "It Takes a lot energy". Wow, they really need to die, now. All of em.

    Please don`t base your opinions of Utah teens based upon this i live in SLC Utah and well it does suck but some of the people are ok. For all those people who are saying its not right to generalize people from this, you are wrong i have personally punched two of the kids in that news cast for being sympathy whores, and Utah is filled with lots of kids with very generic personality`s. I`m moving to Washington state in six months thank god.

    Only the news media could successfully troll THEMSELVES.

    Seriously though, with the global communication network that things like the internet provides, television news media is becoming outdated and useless.

    On a related note, I want to pass a law that states that real life and the internet are required to remain two seperate entities. Because apparently there are too many people that just can`t figure out that a lot of the stuff is `LOL SERIOUS BUSINESS`, and then we get stuff like this. Internet culture is just becoming one giant troll, and people in real life just haven`t figured out how to handle trolls yet. It`s sad, really.

    Oh Please, today`s Emo is yesterday`s Goth and the day before yesterday`s Punks and last weeks Glam Rockers.

    David Bowie, Frank N. Furter, and Iggy Pop should get paid everytime a teen paints dark circle under their eyes, wears black, makes out with the same sex, and listens to "death music". In ten years these kids will either own thier own club or tattoo parlor or struggle in the rat race of life like the rest of us. Nothing new, nothing`s changed.

    Anyone who uses the word "emo" is using it to describe someone else, usually in a derogatory or fearful fashion.

    No one will ever call themselves "emo", because it`s a stupid bullpoo word that people use to categorize a wide range of people and lump them all into something they think they can "understand".

    Obviously the kid with the scars that they chose to pick on has other issues, probably with the way he`s being treated by most of the people around him, at home or at school, but yeah, of course, cue media buzzword, it`s "emo".

    All their sources were jokes lmao. The emo song? And the quiz? How to be an emo book? "Why didn`t I know about it for?" And, finally, the singer of Death Cab for Cutie is not a "young boy singing about suicide".

    Oh for f- sake...

    EMO is a PLAGUE!!

    My friends call me Emo because of the music I listen to and the clothes I wear, but that does NOT mean Im depressed or self-harming at ALL! Do you know WHY i listen to MCR etc? Because it makes me HAPPY! Yes, its true, alert the news papers, MCR make me HAPPY...

    Personally i dont think it`s fair that EVERYONE generalises that kind of music to "Emo" infact, I`m more likely to become Emo because of the stick i get for the music i listen to rather than the music itself!! But i doubt i`ll ever become emo, they scare me, and so do the knives they use.

    people who cut themselves are selfish bastards who cant handle life. the trick to life is not to look up at the world and wonder, "how the hell am i supposed to do that" but to rather look down on all situations and think, "HA look at all i just did, whats next?" i dont understand how people can be considered emo (or "misunderstood") we all go through hardships, it how you work your way through them that make you a person.

    and i really dont understand the ending your life. im agnostic and thus current am in disbelieve that there is a heaven/hell, SO i wonder why do we live life. but that doesnt make me think, i should end my life. man up to life.

    and NOFX, afi is not emo and are actually decent musicians, unlike all the studio edited bands that are out there now. IMO nofx and afi are the same quality (dont confuse that with genre).

    I have a friend who cuts herself but isn`t an emo o_O And she doesn`t cut herself for the reasons you people assume either. She does it to feel her emotional pain in a physical way. You know how sometimes you can get so angry/frustrated that you want to hurt yourself? Maybe pinching yourself or punching something to get your rage out? That`s exactly what it is, only people who cut themselves I assume have a far greater frustration than that, and they resort to cutting instead.

    Back in high school, I was an "emo kid". Not an "emo", it was never used as a noun back then. What did we listen to? Saves the Day, The Alkaline Trio, Jawbreaker, The Get Up Kids... and now that we`ve all grown up a bit and see what people now think of as "emo", most of don`t even use the word anymore.

    Emo is NOT a new trend. What you all think is emo is a twisted re-interpretation of what it used to mean. When we were "emo", we didn`t wear black all the time or put on makeup. We were just normal kids who listened to music that had a more personal element to it than the nu-metal that was all over the radio. And before us, "emo kids" liked bands like Fugazi and Sunny Day Real Estate.

    What we thought of as "emo" meant a lot to us. It`s hard to see that makeup and cutting are associated with the word now, because it used to be something really positive. These news reporters (and a lot of other people) should learn some histor

    They are the ones who are misguided about emo not us. They don`t know anything. If they went through some of the things that teens today went through then they would understand, but until that happens they don`t have room to talk.

    "I`m an EMO kid non conforming as can be, you could be non conforming too if you were just like me!"
    they ACTUALLY used the "Emo Kid" song?

    That being said, a good friend of mine is emo, and through him I have learned that there are 2 kinds of emo.

    1. the original. these people are functional, don`t cut themselves or commit suicide. They don`t wear all black, and chains, and dog collars. They have friends who are not emo. They don`t wear make-up or "gender bend". They simply prefer a style of music that is classified as emo.

    2. The pop culture emo. THESE are the people who dye their hair weird colors and wear makeup and gender bend and cut themselves and act like they have a bajillion problems. They are only friedns with other emos cuz nobody else can "understand them". They cut for attention. they have problems on purpose to get attention. They are not functional and will either outgrow their lifestyle or die with it.

    the adults are stupid to use such a critical attitude and use what people listen to, dress like and act like to form them in to a cutting, suicidal stereotype. They are just trying to find a way to change something they arent used to.

    the emo kids are stupid as well because, well, just grow up. emo people are nothing more than people who can`t handle real life, and haven`t matured yet. People who have ACTUALLY been through tough times are tougher people, not crying babies.

    oh and to use song lyrics to classify a song as emo is stupid also. i listen to PLENTY of music that has what they would consider "emo" lyrics, and i am in no way, shape, or form emo. because i listen to it does not mean the lyrics reflect what i believe or how i feel. i, for one, listen to music because of how it sounds, not who made it or what stereotype it is considered.

    once again, emo kids AND adults, GROW UP. PLEASE!

    i read some of the earlier comments, and, omg. blowing it outta proportions? excuse me?? everything they said is EXACTLY EMO. Anyone that is "EMO" but doesnt fit the description they gave in the video, IS NOT EMO, THEY ARE POSERS! Its not a difficult thing to understand, I mean cmon. Thats like, people who DRESS GOTH and an ACTUAL GOTH are different (not going into the fact that "goth" people arent LITERALLY "gothic" and stuff). Oh, i like how all these 13-17 y/o`s are defending "emo" poo. "Oh, MCR is totally not emo!" Cmon, dont defend emo. an ACTUAL emo person deserves no pity, they NEED help. Oh, and this ACTUAL quote from Lesberry: "My chemical romance is not at all emo....now there the first band everyone thinks of when they hear emo. It`s disgusting;...just trying to make a difference and now their associated with suicidal teens." Well, DONT LOOK EMO AND DONT SAY EMO THINGS IN YER SONGS! MAke a difference? wat

    i have 2 things to say
    1.)i remember when this all started off i was in middle school and this was the time when emo wasn`t about self mutilation and all that crap it was just about the music and well even then i hated it haha i remember telling my friend "this is never going to last" man did that come back to bite me in the ass

    2. Utah......read a magazine i`m sure you`ll catch up sooner or later

    ok, yeah, im not emo and i LOVE three of those songs... famouse last words, pain, and thanks for the memories. the only one even remotely emo is pain, and that can be interperated in a few different ways... stupid stereo typing. i guess because i die my hair black, my favorite color is black (and neon green), my hair is in my face and i listen to this music.. that im emo... in the words on the awesome walter.... dumb-asses!

    but its not like this was that bad of a report
    they do overexaggerate the emo situation...but its not a bad point to show that some people are too into it, and practice self-injury

    Oh my GOD I hope this is a parody news cast... Seriosuly, this just proves how stupid the older generations are. At least in the understanding of kids today. Most of the "emo" they referenced were the emo parodies, making fun of emos! I mean, come on, get it right.

    hahahaha. This was funny. I love how all the adults were all "Emo? What i`ve never heard of that!" When it`s been around awhile!! "Underground" culture? Not really....And did anyone notice the funny way they kept saying "emo"? It was like it was like they were afraid of saying ot or something! People sure blow things out of proportion.

    Thats a load of crap. Way to be on top of things. How can you not know about emos? The term came about in the 80`s geez. Everyone cuts themselves for attention, why else would a rich kid with nice parents cut themselves? And i love how the news station made a slideshow...how professional?

    hmm what attracts young people to emo...
    well i know i like the fashion - emo hair on guys is hot! - the music rocks - and i`d rather die than be a chav.

    and remember that just because your an "emo" doesn`t mean you slit your wrists - it`s not a lifestyle for eveybody. the utah news people are just broadcasting the stereotype. oh what a surprise that my chemical romance were the first band to be played !!

    they`re amazing live by the way

    aaand alot of the videos played from the internet were videos taking the piss outta emos and the emo culture so they`re taking them outta context to make "emo" look bad.

    and thats all i have to say :D luffluff xx

    "Theres nothing more i hate than generalizing, paranoid parents who think they understand what is going on."

    very well put
    i hate these news reports. emo isnt all about suicide and depression. you know you can like that kind of music, you can like that style of hair or clothing, and you dont have to be depressed. its so retarded. the reporters dont have any what theyre talking about and for those who REALLY are depressed? yeah. putting up a news report on national telivision is a smart idea. i hate these reports

    I hate this video and Cannibal151. Poser emos suck.not all emos cut themselves. thats generalizing. like saying that all white people are white trash (im no racist though). i hate how they used fall out boy and mcr. and the book everybody hurts. me and my friends,like, worship that book. not because we are emo. just because it`s a good book. and we love mcr. but we`re not emo. we just like the color black. black is not emo. i know im not emo because i love the color bright pink alot! stupid utah.no wonder people are depressed. and people dont be emo to fit in. emos are thought of as freaks

    i`m concerned about their story-research crew
    i`m captivated with disbelief

    this evokes so many emotions in me, but so few words. what is there to say?

    Why do so damn many people keep saying emo is "non-conforming"? Emo is conformity anymore...More than half the morons at school have black dyed hair hanging over their eyes and wear stupid old-ass coats and tight pants...So much for non-conformity.

    i dont want to sound like a bully or anything, because im not
    but seriously, i cant be the only one that knows alot of kids cut themselves for the attention, i know a few people who have told everyone that they cut themselves. if they are cutting themselves because they are really hurting, they would be ashamed of it and hide it, alot of emos cut themselves because its what "the cool kids do" and because of that, parents are now worrying about their kids. and some kids who dont need the help are getting it, because they want people to worry, while others dont get the help they need. and end up commiting suicide.
    hell i even know people who have carved "scene" into their wrists. whats that all about.
    and ps. i hate the excuse of cutting yourself because your being bullied, thats life, everyone gets bullied, i was bullied all through high school, and by one gang of girls for 2-3 years, and i have never cut myself. or tried to commit suicide. kids are too so

    WHO CARES what people look like??
    Because they dress a certain way..and listen to certain music, you INSTANTLY assume that they cut themselves and try to commit suicide? I dress like it because i like the way it looks. I am attracted to that fashion. And people who dont understand things go against them. WHAT THE HECK. People are sooooo stupid. -_-

    i like how in the beginning they do this whole "viewere discretion advsised" stick. "you might be a little disturbed".
    this is still pretty ridiculous, basically feeding into the stereotype that emos cut.
    and MCR and AFI aren`t emo.
    MCR is alternative and AFI is post-punk.
    pissed me off.
