Everyone thought that in 2008, scene and emo kids were just living out a phase of being moody teenagers. Now all those teenagers are grown up and more sad than ever. It’s not a phase, Mom! Even if you weren’t a scene kid putting cryptic and emotional songs on your Myspace profile, you are probably finding yourself wishing that you could. You might even get messages from your friends feverishly asking if you are okay. If they saw your mysteriously despairing post on social media, people would really know how much of a sad boi you were. And then you would obviously respond, “thankz, nobody understands me, rawr </3“
Back when emo was a style, things were a little simpler. Now you’re an adult, have to pay bills, and can’t even keep your facial piercings and Sharpie nail polish because of your corporate desk job. Everything sucks. Time to let your inner sad boi free, it’s rainy season and emo is hip again.
