Is Emo Over-Rated?

It seems that today emo music is overrated, because of bands like Hawthorne Heights and Bayside who sing needlessly about cutting and so on. Like my friend Nikc once told me “Screamo is a bunch of [people that dress completely black] with a gay haircut that covers an eye.” Nick is a metalhead so I guess his opinion doesn’t matter.

When I googled “emo quotes” I got the famous Adam and Andrew song, and many obnoxious things, but in the ones that were “trying not to be mean” I got:

Cut our wrists like cheap coupons and say that death was on sale today.
- Marylin Manson

I think emo music really has become overrated.
