I'm Not OK: Remembering What It Meant to Be Emo

Emo - Wikipedia

All the while, MCR vehemently denied they were getting back together, crushing our collective dreams. But not me. So last month, after learning that My Chemical Romance was returning for its first tour in eight years, I called my mom, the woman who saw me through my embarrassing outfits and loved me enough to be seen in public with me. If anyone was angsty, misunderstood, and slighted, it was me. By 14, I had moved from my pop-punk phase of listening to Good Charlotte, Gob and Sum 41 on my walkman—my clothes held together by obnoxiously large safety pins, my Converse scribed on with black marker, and rainbow socks—to black band T-shirts and rubber bracelets, bows in my hair, and skull jewelry.

How are goths and emos defined?

Trapped in the monotony of suburban Connecticut, I felt a kinship with this motley group of hardcore dudes from Long Island, who sang about trashed friendships and soured love. At 13, I held my beat-up CD player on my lap and rode my bike in circles on my long, winding driveway, listening to Your Favorite Weapon and, later, Deja Entendu. I wore skinny jeans years before they became universally popular and gigantic band T-shirts meant to hide my steadily withering body. At some point, virtually every teenager has a relationship like this with a band: practically druglike, all-consuming.
I'm a little suspicious of the near-constant reverence given to youth cultures. Perhaps it's because I'm not too far away from being in the catchment age for that sort of thing, but when I was a teen, I couldn't be fucked with it all. I certainly didn't think I was part of anything special, or important.
