From my understanding, emo’s originated back in the Clash and Sex Pistols days. Kids that were into heavy punk dressed up in black, pierced their faces and became hermits and speed freaks. 30 years later, emo’s are the kids that are right into groups like My Chemical Romance, Panic at the Disco, and other various sundries of unlistenable music. The main difference I see now compared to then, is back in the 80’s, the kids that listened to punk were the kids that would take pleasure in killing you. They were rather tough kids, and really enjoyed unadulterated violence on a large scale. The offshoot to those kids, the modern day emo as it were, are chickenshit little wimps that are nothing more than punching bags to even the weakest children.
I asked this emo creature who works at city hall under some program we have where we have to hire a percentage of unemployable to fill positions that don’t really exist, I asked the kid if emo’s originated back to the 80’s. He/she/it grunted a few letters, but couldn’t actually form a word much less a sentence. So I did what his father and mother should have done years ago to him/her/it: I grabbed the creature by the scruff of the neck, threw him/her/it up against a vending machine, and told him/her/it that the next time I ask them a question they better look me straight in the eyes and give me a proper answer, or so help me Lord sweet Jesus in heaven, I’ll crack their fucking head open like a drunkard on a Budweiser bottle.
I suppose the point of this story is that I’m a bully, but a bully that can back his words up with actions. Actions that include swift and intense force designed to inflict maximum pain to the marginalized and stupid. You would think at 42 years of age that I shouldn’t be like that, but I really hate emo’s with a passion. They hijacked the coolness of The Clash and The Stranglers and replaced it with such idiocy as Fall Out Boy.
