Close enough to punk and rock Emo is now known for it’s more emotional state of mind. Instead of the anger hard-core way of expressing one-self, Emo (short for emotional) has taken a new toll on the twentieth century of expressing yourself. From the music with strong emotion and feeling, unlike hard rock or this is more of an alternative way to let your feeling be known. Emo is not only a classification or a type of music it’s also taken over the way one expresses themselves by dressing. It includes the tighter fitting pants to the dyed-black or dark hair with it covering your face. The longer hair in front with the spikes in the back is also a more Emo or emotional look to dressing.
