Remember emos? Emo kids were everywhere back in the 2000s. They were depressed, wore exclusively black, dyed their hair black and let it grow to unhealthy proportions, and of course, the jewelry and piercings.
Well, too bad the emos have kinda died out in this day and age, but if you remember them and more to the point, remember being one, you’ll definitely relate to these 25 things.
1. You had to look like a panda before going out
Crap tons of black makeup. Check out this eyeliner!
2. A selfie before the selfie was a thing
This was known as the MySpace pose.
3. Drawing all over your Converse sneakers
Or any sneakers for that matter.
4. Тhis is what putting jeans on in the morning looked like
5. Your hair looked like this
And you spent hours trying to get it to look so.
6. Your relationship was intense
The best you’ve ever had in your life, and you had pictures to prove it.
7. You lived for the day Kerrang! came out…
Which was Wednesday, FYI
8. Pictures from Kerrang! were all over your bedroom walls
9. You “hated” mainstream music
Even though your favorite bands were everywhere.
10. You dreamt of getting covered in tattoos…
…but your mom wouldn’t let you
11. She wouldn’t let you get ear stretchers either
These are pretty common nowadays, so if you want to get some, you won’t be outclassed.
12. The piercings were the main part however
13. Pete Wentz and Hayley Williams were life
14. Cartoons like this were sent to your crush
15. The Daily Mail was your most hated news source
Due to their anti-emo stance.
16. You were buzzing when emos fought back
17. Cryptic MySpace bulletins intended for you crush
Don’t lie, we know you did this.
18. Fallout Boy or Panic
Which one was better? A common argument.
19. Every outfit needed these two accessories
20. Hanging out with friends usually meant drinking Monster in your local park
21. Or hanging out meant going to gigs
22. Even though the bands weren’t that good
The concerts still had mosh pits.
23. …And you had to pretend you actually enjoyed moshing
24. Everything you had had Jack Skellington on it
25. But most of all, you were not emo
Yeah, keep telling yourself that
