15 things anyone who went through an emo phase will remember

1. Being well-versed in band acronyms like MCR, FOB, P!ATD, etc.

And writing them all over your schoolbag.

2. Relating heavily to the song I’m Not Okay (I Promise)

All together now: “Well if you wanted honesty, that’s all you had to say”

3. Constantly having to blow your fringe out of your eyes

And having to listen your family make gags at your expense. Don’t listen to them. They just don’t understand.

4. Spending all of your pocket money on grotty band t-shirts from the likes of Asha in St. Stephen’s Green

5. And going real heavy on the eyeliner

6. Worshipping MySpace celebrities like Jeffree Star

7. And trying in vain to replicate their look in your profilers

Pink hair and side fringe, anyone?

8. Being genuinely delighted when you finally mastered all the lyrics to Panic! At The Disco’s I Write Sins Not Tragedies

It’s much better to face these things with a sense of poise and rationality

10. Only listening to songs with long, overwrought titles like…

  • The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide is Press Coverage
  • I’ve Got a Dark Alley and a Bad Idea That Says You Should Shut Your Mouth (Summer Song)
  • Cute Without the ‘E’ (Cut From The Team)

11. Decorating your Bebo with photos like these

12. Picking an emotional lyric to be your personal message on MSN Messenger


“I’ll be your number one with a bullet”

13. Owning loads of Nightmare Before Christmas memorabilia

And regarding Sally as a personal style icon.
