Forum: sc3mo k1dz!! Group

Just wanted to know if ur an wayback oldschool emo (90's to 2001/2), a kinda oldschool emo (2002/3 to 2012/13) or one of the new gen z emos, im in that weird mix of being a very late gen z'er and/or very young meillinal sooo i was on the trail end of the kinda oldschool emo days (2009 to 2013) my emo years were 2010 to 2012/14ish as my 'myspace' style emo days and 2013 to 2016/17 as my 90's revivalist days.


 When were yours?

Gen z who's kinda newish emo ig? I'm a 17 yr old who's only recently got back into emo (I first got into it at 12 yrs but eventually stopped because I couldn't find other emos, plus I was in the phase of wanting to fit in with the rest of my classmates lol)

Great question!


I think it all depends on your age and area in regards to what classes as emo or scene.
Both groups where distinctly different where I'm from in Sheffield, England.

I was a Myspace kid from around 2004-2009 (around 17-21)

I'm not cool/old enough to be an original mid-west emo fan, i'm more of a product of the next emo generation and everything that was lumped into that category such as MCR, Panic at the Disco, The Used, Dashboard, Taking Back Sunday and Brand New et al. 

Scene kids were quite different where I was from and were almost exclusively post-hardcore, screamo fans of As I Lay Dying, Underoath, Alexisonfire, HORSE the Band, Refused. They had an exclusive dress code and looked down on anyone lumped under the emo, pop punk, general rock bracket.  Going to hardcore shows seemed like it was less about the music and more about the fashion and at times it could be very cliquey. 

I was a part of both for a while, I remember being a huge MCR fan during the Three Cheers era and then claiming to be 'too cool' for them by the time The Black Parade came around because all the younger kids loved it.  

I think it's all generational, what was emo to me definitely wasn't to the kids a couple of years younger than me at school. Just like life, it changes and evolves. 

Either way, they were some of the best years of my life and I still miss the friends I met on Myspace to this day.

I just finished the 6th grade. I’m a newer scene kid and I don’t care about your aesthetic. If you are not 14 and under, please don’t ask to be my friend on here. Does anyone remember AllAboutMeep? I do.

I'm 21 and I started off as emo at 12 to the best of my ability my friend got me into it by showing me Black Veil Brides, Falling in Reverse, and BOTDF. I have changed a lot since then though and I'm trying to get into being scene. Took me until now to realize I'm an adult I can look like that and my parents can't do anything about it. Anyway Guess I'm a newer emo/scene

well I would not say I'm new even if I was born in 2007 bc my sister raised me who was a huge emo so I grew up listening to my chem sws and a looot of linkin park and avril lavigne, I went to an avril concert in 2013 (ofc I was super young 5 years old) I was only there bc my dad and sister could not put me anywhere while they were in the concert. But yeah all in all since I know my mind I'm emo/scene.

I'm a 19 yr old who was an emo kid in middle school right when emo and scene started dying off (2012-2013) and recently got into scene stuff in college (still more emo than scene though).

Gen z lol, and while I like the old scene/emo aesthetic and try to replicate it as closely as possible, I am very grateful sometimes that I wasn't alternative when scene/emo was at it's peak. From what I've heard it could get pretty ruthless especially on the scene kids side lmao haven't actually heard many bad things about the peak of emo except for the obvious '^^ was it actually as bad as some people say it was? I keep hearing these like,,, scene kid horror stories from millenials on tiktok and I just have to know if it was really that shitt

im only 18 but was introduced to the whole emo scene when i was like 12. was much different then and surrounded by adults...wasn't the best environment :/  Maybe if i knew more people that weren't online it would've been different but what can i say. kinda bullied out of it at one point but defiantly getting back into it :)

mi hermana era emo desde los 2000, algo que siempre estuve relacionado es con esa subcultura, recuerdo el peinado característico de los jóvenes, yo intentaba copiarlos con una edad muy temprana, recuerdo aún que en primaria intentaba ser emo copiando el estilo de mi hermana y de sus amigos.

sin duda alguna, ahora me gustaría estar dentro de la subcultura emo.
