ARE YOU EMO?

according to this, I am.
There is no way in hell that’s from ‘99. Emo wasn’t a thing then and neither was blogging? And aren’t the getup kids later than that too? My guess ‘04. These kids definitely had a xanga.
lol you’re kidding, right? Because you have to know that emo has been a thing since at least the ’80s, maybe earlier. Jawbreaker and Minor Threat were both formed in the ’80s. I just looked up The Get Up Kids, and they formed in ‘95. Blogging definitely wasn’t popular until around ‘99, but yeah, it was a thing. I don’t know you, so I don’t know your age, your humor, or your knowledge of emo/punk culture, but I’m really sick of 15 year olds who think that Breathe Carolina invented emo. Educate yourselves, kids.
