What makes the emo subculture?

A mixture of punk rock and hard-core music genres are the basis of the EMO subculture. The term "emocore" originates from emotional hard-core and dates back to the mid of the 1980s. Founders of the music style added melodic elements to their tunes. Sadness, affection, sense of loneliness are the main topics of their tunes. Hence, the emo style could be defined as rock music with emotional lyric features. Still, the definition of the emo style is still debated. Although the emo subculture was originally referred to as a music genre, now it is referred not only to music, but also to conduct, clothes, hair style and the way of life. The emo style is known as unfashionable. This way emo representatives demonstrate that they take no interest in all aspects of society. Emos consider themselves outcasts and, thus, demonstrate their disregard for existing social rules and standards through the emo style. Tight jeans and t-shirts, with printed names of popular emo groups, skate sneakers, colorful stockings, a full scope of body accessories, badges, bracelets create the image of an EMOtional teen. Hairstyles also contribute to the emo fashion. Popular looks are long side-swept bangs, commonly covering one or both eyes. Straightened and dyed black hair is also a part of the emo style. Blue, red, pink or bleached blond highlights are very stylish. Short choppy layers of hair are also typical. Occasionally this fashion has been characterized as a fad. At the outset of the third millennium, the emo fashion was associated with a clean look, but as teenagers adhered to the style, it got darker, with long bangs and emphasis on the color black replacing sweater vests. Emos are very vulnerable characters. Psychologists consider them introverts who are reluctant to socialize with the world around. Instead, they express their standpoints by means of poetry. Poems they write are full of sorrow, nostalgia and despair. Typically these emotions are observed in young people aged 12 - 18, when they are emotionally unstable. Coupled by family problems, the emoism becomes a way of life for many emo adherents.
