Welcome to the Black Parade! If you're a fan of all things emo, you'd definitely recognize this song by one of the greatest emo bands ever, My Chemical Romance. From the music to the fashion, can we guess how emo you were in high school?
Emo wasn't just a trend. It was a lifestyle. The trend originally came from the music genre. While you might not even know where the term comes from, emo is a shortened version of emotive or emotional hardcore. Green Day, which formed in 1986, is often credited with being one of the first emo bands, but the genre wouldn't boom until the early 2000s. After Green Day, bands like My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy and Panic! at the Disco were joining the emo genre. Along with the music came the fashion.
When it comes to emo fashion, it is very distinctive! Black was a major part of the wardrobe and an outfit couldn't be completed without a pair of black Converse. Heavy eyeliner was all the rage and if you didn't have a choppy haircut filled with tons of layers, could you even claim to be emo?
How were you living out your high school life? Were you writing on your Chuck Taylors? Did you have to go to Hot Topic to find the perfect outfit for Warped Tour?
Answer these questions about your high school years, and we'll guess how emo you were!
