Subject: What high school class years were into Emo?

Written By: nintieskid999 on 03/31/17 at 6:12 pm

Roughly 2005 to 2011 was emo's popularity peak.

That means anywhere from the class of 2005 (born 1987) to the class of 2015 (born 1997) would've been into emo to some extent.

My freshman year of high school was the last year of any emo influence, but the trend was definitely past its prime by then. So Class of 2011 sounds about right as Zelek stated.

I disagree. Really, 1997?. Emo music was mainly popular among people ages 16-22 and when emo was popular (2002-2010), those born in 1997 were ages 5-13. If a person born in 1997 is into emo then they most likely only recently got into emo in the last few years.

I guess people born in 1986-1991 would remember emo the most, since they were in high school by the time the genre was big.

Hmm? I thought emo was mainly popular among people ages 12-17. I mostly saw preteens and teens be into emo; young adults at the time, from what I've seen, didn't pierce their lips or go to Hot Topic.

I started seeing emo people in my class by 7th grade but the last year it was relevant was my freshman year of high school. My sophomore year is when hipster took over. We were definitely NOT the main emo generation. I think the mid to late 2000's (2004-2009) was the peak of emo in middle & high school. It was 7th through 12th graders who usually did the emo style at the time. I hardly saw any 6th graders doing it, maybe not at all since they were barely out of the elementary school phase.

A friend of mine (also born in 1999) was really into the Emo scene. I didn't know him at the time, but when he was 11-12, he used to dye his hair black, have the "Emo" haircut and he would wear eyeliner as well. During our first year of High School (in 2012), he still had the "Emo" hair cut, although he had stopped wearing eyeliner by that stage. It's probably not surprising to hear that Fall Out Boy and Panic at the Disco are his two favourite bands. :P However, with all that said, I do agree that most people born in the second half of the 90s were never truly into Emo.

Emo was at is peak in popularity from roughly Late 2004 through Mid 2009. If were going by who was in their teenage years during the majority of their time being placed in the emo era, meaning ages 13-19 with age 16 being the peak year, then I'd say those born from Late 1987 through Mid 1993 would be the main emo generation. They spent most of their teens during the peak of the emo trend in the mid-late 2000's and I'm sure your typical emo kid would be born during sometime in this era.

So that would be the HS C/O 2006 through the HS C/O 2011.

For most early-mid 80's babies the main counter culture trends were the Skater Punk and Goth trends. For most mid-late 90's babies the main counter culture trends were the Scene and Hipster trends.

I would say barley. More of the thoes born in 1988 onward is wear it got more emo. Even some of those mid 80s babies, who were in college got into it, most of which were in emo bands.

Also the peak of emo was from 2005 to about 2008. By 2009 the trend had pretty much run its course for the most part.

No i would say more of 1988 to about 1992. Maybe the tail end of thoes born in 1987. As far as "remembering", Anybody born as early as the mid 70s and wasn't living under a rock would remember. I think you meant those who were "into" it. Although there were some mid 80s babies who where actually into it, there mostly the ones in those bands

I'd say this is more accurate. 1987 seems to be the year were you can see the emo "divide". Most early to mid 87ers weren't into it as much as thoes born later in the year. Of course that's not saying that every early 87er wasnt into it. There were even some mid 80s babies who were into it. Not to the degree as the high schoolers but they did have the hair style, dyed black, and wore tight jeans. Like I said most of these guys (and some girls) were in emo bands.

I didn't really become aware of Emo until late 2005 when Sugar We're Goin' Down by Fall Out Boy was getting played on the radio every five minutes. I remember it was just a few weeks after I started college. I liked some of those bands like My Chemical Romance, All-American Rejects and Thirty Seconds to Mars (if you want to include them), but I never did get into the whole Emo "look". Some of my friends did, though. I even knew some kids older than me (1985 and 1986) that did also.

Since the topic is about high school classes, I would agree that the Class of 2006 was probably the oldest to get heavily into Emo in high school (likely during their senior year), but the Classes of '05, '04 and even '03 did get into Emo in college.

No offense to anyone who liked it, but emo always seemed so patently "uncool" to me in middle school, that I wondered why kids my age were jumping on the bandwagon. :P

I mean, even its name sounds silly.

All-American Rejects are not emo!! You brought back bad school memories of false emo accusations.  ;D

I'm born '93 and emo was popular from about when I was 11/12 to when I was about 15/16. I didn't get that into it, I was more into metal.

The first album was more emo in the late 90's Knapsack vein but their second album just sounds like standard 00's pop rock to me. Not anything close to faux-emo like Fall Out Boy or My Chemical Romance, really.

The first album definitely not but all the ones after that sound like Fall Out Boy and All Time Low. :P

None of these bands are really emo, though. It's so weird how that term randomly got attached to guys dressing up in eyeliner and black clothing out of nowhere. I think of the music that came out between 1984-2002 (which spans like three/four different eras but still) when I think emo, not 2003-2010 or whatever.

Basically any mid '00s rock band that sounded even remotely like Pop-Punk and had a whiny lead singer was labeled as "Emo". It was one of those terms that eventually got way too diluted, like everything in the early '90s being called "Grunge" or "Alternative".

Maybe it's because I'm older or because I lot touch with a lot of music and pop culture in general after the late 90s or early 2000s (though I still recognize songs from the last decade that I hear at stores, and like some of them), but I didn't even have an inkling what "emo" was until maybe 2010. Then I thought it was just a new incarnation of goth with tighter clothes and 2000s music, unlike the baggier styles of 90s goths.

Is Three Days Grace "One-X" album emo?

In fact, it might have been when I stopped listening to the radio very often (and when a lot of music went online) that I lost touch with a lot of contemporary music.

I've seen the video for All-American Rejects "Gives You Hell." What's "emo" about it? To me it just looked like preppy 2000s rock music, which isn't my favorite thing but I still like to some extent, because at least it was rock music.

I wouldn't consider them emo but as Machine Held said just about every rock band in the mids 00s regardless of their genre were considered emo if they had one song that was remotely similar to emo.

And Three Days Grace's one -x wasn't an emo album, however, the members of the band grow their hair out by the time they released it and the song "Never Too Late" was incorrectly labeled emo by some(they couldn't have been more wrong), TDG was never am emo band.

I think the name "emo" is used largely as a judgment meaning "wimpy" or "effeminate" for guys. Three Days Grace doesn't give off that vibe. It's like Alice in Chains or a lot of Stone Temple Pilots. They were angsty and inward, but also wouldn't be called emo.

I knew some goth kids in high school who were into things like Wicca and vampire stories and Satanism to some extent. They hung out at a place in Wheat Ridge, Colorado called "The Rising Phoenix" (the high schoolers who thought goths sometimes laid it on too thick or were often posers would mockingly call it "The Rising Penis" for laughs) that was dimly lit and had a candle at each table. So the goths often had an interest in supernatural and occult stuff (usually just superficially, like they enjoyed fantasy stories and got a bit obsessive about them), and I got the impression it was a darker take on some of the New Age stuff popular in the 90s.

Did emo kids get into occult stuff too, or was it more about the aesthetic?

I don't think so. I assume the emo/goth look was replaced by the hipster look. I'd also find when some would cosplay in older fashion. If someone was to look like a goth it'd be like they're wearing a costume in today's world. But in 2007 dressing as goth or emo was pretty much part of mainstream fashion.

Yes, that's one of the things that started the whole movement. I started going to shows in 1996 and I remember when emo used to mean sweater vests and thick glasses, almost like your hipsters, and witnessed when it changed to what it is known for today. Around 2003, with Fall Out Boy's Take This to Your Grave and blink-182's Untitled, emo started to take a new form. June 2004 is probably one of the most significant months for faux-emo (as I like to call it because before 2003, emo meant something completely different) as it's when My Chemical Romance released Three Cheers, Hawthorne Heights released The Silence, From First to Last released Dear Diary, Underoath released They're Only Chasing Safty and Aiden released Our Gang's Dark Oath. Just one month and the movement of bad bands in tight black pants and eyeliner was completely solidified.

All American Rejects are definitely not a part of that. Preppy mid 00's rock? Yes. Emo? Not even.

Being born in October 1993, I started my freshmen year of high school during the 2008-2009 school year. I remember emo was still quite popular, though to a lesser extent than the previous two school years (I'd say the 2006-2007 school year was probably the peak of emo, with the 2007-2008 school year being a close second). By the 2009-2010 school year, emo was either dying or already dead. Granted I wouldn't say my estimations are quite accurate, as I was never into emo. So I may be a year off, give or take. However, I remember scene fashion remained popular throughout the rest of my high school years.

Being born in October 1993, I started my freshmen year of high school during the 2008-2009 school year. I remember emo was still quite popular, though to a lesser extent than the previous two school years (I'd say the 2006-2007 school year was probably the peak of emo, with the 2007-2008 school year being a close second). By the 2009-2010 school year, emo was either dying or already dead. Granted I wouldn't say my estimations are quite accurate, as I was never into emo. So I may be a year off, give or take. However, I remember scene fashion remained popular throughout the rest of my high school years.


Yeah, I'd say mid-late 2006 was the peak of it. Welcome to the Black Parade, Boys Like Girls, MakeDamnSure and co. it was still carrying onto 2007/2008 with bands like Paramore and We The Kings but with less chart presence. 2009 was its last hurrah; I think when Facebook overtook Myspace as the most popular social network sometime in mid-2009 was pretty much the curtain call.


What bands did you listen to?


For North American, I was into Blind Witness, Attila, All Shall Perish, and For The Fallen Dreams are some of the stuff I listened to. Admittedly, I was more into Scandinavian/European metal. Have you heard of bands like Alcest (French), Sólstafir (Icelandic), or Enslaved (Norwegian)? They're pretty dope. :D
