[Subculture Filter] What is emo all about anyway?
posted by Kitty Stardust to society & culture (19 answers total) 8 users marked this as a favorite
I'm looking for good sources that can help explain the emo phenomena to someone just a bit too old to be in the target market. A lot of what I see online seems like subjective cheerleading from fans. Ideally, I'd like some critical/sociological perspective on the topic. Big bonus points for academic sources. I am working on an ongoing project concerning the gothic subculture and I'd like to be knowledgeable enough about emo to compare and contrast these movements.
