Here are the real lyrics to the video, but they don't make much more sense than the parody. Unintelligible angsty emo songs seem to be created just for parodies. Great video. tongue.gif

Well, with me fresh out of high school [as of last june] I can definitely attest to the explosion of "emo"-riffic culture in the last two years. I suppose this is just the way that pop-cukture is swinging, and when this trend ends, much like boy bands of the nineties, the pop-culture youth will move on to it's next fad.

As far as "real" emo goes, well, that's subjective. If a 'poser' kid genuinely believes they are an emo kid, are they? Some people would say yes, others would say no. I say that it's not my place to judge the kid, seeing as that reminds me a little too much of high school.

As far as the music goes- It's not my thing; and by that I mean that I would love to cholk the lead singer of MCR until he turned blue and sta-
*ahem*
I prefer the Electronica Genres, myself.

Hehehe. I would too. biggrin.gif

Anyway, I don't see the point of trying to organize people into neat little groups like that. If someone wants to say they're emo, goth, or whatever else...I don't care. I'm not going to tell them that they aren't. I don't see why it should matter to me how other people classify themselves.

But then, I don't base my identity around being associated with a particular genre of music. Perhaps it would mean more to someone who wanted to be seen a certain way, and thought others were ruining their reputation by identifying themselves the same way and acting in a manner the person didn't like. So then the person just wants to yell "Hey, stop that, you're making the rest of us look bad!" Hmm. Sounds an awful lot like being American... rolleyes.gif

But nationality is something you're born with, and is a lifelong thing in most cases. Trends come and go, and it's probably best to not get too worked up about them. And anyone who would make assumptions about you based on the behavior of some other people who share a common trait with you is an idiot anyway. TWL, maybe you should just worry about how you portray yourself rather than getting so worked up about people who are, according to you, "posers."

Just a thought.
