Top 10 Weirdest Looking Emo Kids

LeTune February 20, 2010 149

It is sometimes hard for us mortals to distinguish the difference between Goth kids and Emo kids. All we know is that they both share a common passion for the color black, a mutual distaste for their parents and society, and an fatal allergy for everything that is considered normal and within the norm of things. To shed some further light on today’s troubled youth, we have collected the ten most obscure photos of Emo kids as well as Goth kids we could find. Not to ridicule or make fun of, but more to observe and understand.

First, let’s identify the true characteristics of an Emo Kid. We could settle with linking to the appropriate Wikipedia page, but will instead include this photo explaining the epitomy of an Emo Kid.

    Most of them wasn’t emo – they were metal, goth or juggalos. Still funny though.

      • Shirime May 25, 2010 at 10:32 am -

        So lemme see… Insane Clown Posse, make up, hip hop…. Come again, WTF is a Juggalo ???

        • gregorik August 25, 2010 at 3:14 am -

          it don’t matter if they’re goth, icp, metal, emo or goa: they’re besically the SAME 90’s-00’s subculture.

        • D December 18, 2010 at 9:04 pm -

          If you can’t find the answers to easy questions on google… you *might* be a Juggalo….

  2. Mary February 25, 2010 at 6:10 am -

    10, 9, 8, 7 5 4 and 3 aren’t even emo, they’re goths and juggalos….

    • mike May 31, 2010 at 12:40 pm -

      who cares.. they all look like complete idiots. and you probably look/dress just as dumb

      how would you know the difference??

      • dana August 17, 2010 at 9:31 am -

        you can tell by the clothing they wear. If it is a rock band on the shirt, they are usually goth. If it says ICP or has a hatchet man anywhere, they are a juggalo/juggalette. If they are males and dress like a female and look constantly sad, they are emo.

        To answer the question “what is a juggalo”…
        A juggalo is someone who follows the Hatchet Label groups. They consider other listeners family. Not all juggalos dress like that. (I know, i’m a juggalette) Most of us lead normal lives, and post our hatchet gear in a way that only a juggalo/juggalette will recognize us as family. Remember this one thing…if you see more than one person with any type of hatchet gear (including shirts from ICP, Twizted, Dark Lotus, Tech9 etc) it is best to keep your opinion closed. Some tend to be very aggressive. :)

    I stand corrected Brick. It is a glorious mix of emos, goths and other subcultured kids :) A hardcore emo kid list to come!

    • dcnsdjkcvnskj August 21, 2010 at 12:40 pm -

      i dont think that hardcore and emo should be used in the same sentence.

      • lastcrazyhorn December 18, 2010 at 6:14 pm -

        funny, just what I was about to say. lol

      • Reid January 1, 2011 at 4:10 pm -

        That’s because you don’t realize they grew out of the same scene.

  9. isa March 25, 2010 at 6:55 pm -

  19. Anon May 20, 2010 at 10:14 am -

    Seriously, what the hell is a juggalo? Kids who are really into nu-metal (metal with lot’s of rap that is usually despised by both people who like rap and metal)?

  20. roberto May 21, 2010 at 11:39 am -


  21. Jade May 21, 2010 at 11:03 pm -

    A juggalo is mainly a strong follower of the music produced by Insane Clown Posse or any other music produced by their record company called Psychopathic Records.

  24. Throckmorton Jones June 24, 2010 at 12:13 am -

    Most of the images didn’t load for me even with multiple forced refreshes. All the ones that did load, well, none were emo.

  25. Jammy July 14, 2010 at 5:10 am -

  26. Firefly August 1, 2010 at 1:31 am -

  27. Likesrealmusic August 24, 2010 at 12:15 am -

    You’re a self proclaimed juggalo. Anything you say is immediately discredited.

  28. stupid August 31, 2010 at 7:26 am -


  29. 8bithero November 4, 2010 at 7:10 am -

  32. pennie December 17, 2010 at 8:56 pm -

    I see ordinary people who dream the same dreams and who wished to be loved and accepted. It doe’nt matter what they look like they still have feelings and hurt when cut or disappointed. We are all loved for who we are, because it;s whats inside that counts. Merry Christmas!

  33. Spazzgoesrawr December 18, 2010 at 7:29 pm -

    wow… these guys are all pretty messed up… most arent even emo… i wouldnt even categorize them. it looks like they took a shot at tryin to be something epic and missed… im sorry :(

    anyways, the last one is the only one i think hit the look of emo, and emo isnt bad if you do it right [[which 90% of the ones claiming to be emo cant do]]… but then again, hes just acting like a normal teenager right? i know my parents still annoy me after too long. lawlz 😀

  34. come onnnn December 18, 2010 at 9:31 pm -


  35. Yuli December 20, 2010 at 10:34 pm -

    In my day (I graduated high school 7 years ago) we called these kids “goth”. When did this change?! Emo was a totally different thing back then. You kids and your lack of past trends/sub-culture knowledge!

  37. TommyK January 3, 2011 at 2:00 pm -

    …and these are the same individuals who will complain that no one will give them a job.

  38. adam January 4, 2011 at 8:11 pm -

    still trying to figure out how the hell the consider 10 only “slightly obese. that is disgusting. please stop making our country look even fatter.

  39. wakeup January 4, 2011 at 9:03 pm -

    Wasting your time judging people is just as stupid as you apparently think the way these people dress are. I would not dress this way but I am not going to judge these people. I wouldn’t go out of my way to talk to them, but at the same time I wouldn’t go out of my way to talk to the author of this article.

  40. fratstar January 4, 2011 at 10:18 pm -

    all of you are wrong. they’re all GDIs.

    • J.T. January 6, 2011 at 12:29 am -

      Well said lol. All this debate over whether or not they’re emo……it doesn’t matter, they’re GDIs lol :)

  41. lambda chi til I die January 6, 2011 at 10:40 pm -

    Bet they wear black cargo shorts

  42. lee January 11, 2011 at 2:52 am -

    The internet is a breeding ground for aggression.

    Reason, people don’t have to back up their arguments with stone cold violence-wimps :-)

    So the easiest thing to do is just chill out, lets all try and get a long and guys/girls—–wear wtf you want-coz it doesnt matter :-)

    PS, the hula-hooping goth reminds me off a friend-Ross, AKA CONAN THE BARBARIAN.

  43. hey everybody January 11, 2011 at 3:07 pm -

    i want to know how to dress emotionally. if i wore tight band t-shirts along with tight jeans am i an emotional dresser now?!?!?! YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol this comment was for funnies, but there is SOME meaning in what i said.

  44. BizarreMike January 12, 2011 at 9:50 am -

    Ok.. number 9 should be # 1

  45. adsfdfdf January 19, 2011 at 12:53 am -

    “we are the freakin’ goths”… 😀

    • 76million January 25, 2011 at 11:55 pm -

      Calling a goth an emo. Why not? They’re already permanently pissed off.

      • Ziggy February 22, 2011 at 2:41 pm -

        So what’s the difference between goth and emo?

        • smexter February 23, 2011 at 12:42 pm -

          Don’t get ’em started troll!
          Basically to answer your question quickly and painlessly;
          Emos hate themselves and everyone around them. Often characterised by too-tight clothing, lots of bracelets and classic “emo fringe”. Don’t poke them too hard, they may start crying.
          Goths……well, they’re just permanently pissed at everyone else around them. Like emos, except listen to a bit more hardcore music, and prefer baggy black trousers to their sister’s skintight jeans. Don’t poke them too hard, they may hit you. Hard.

          • Lilly March 2, 2011 at 9:05 am -

            One other difference I would like to mention, Goths more mourn than hate. Yes they are pissed off, but mostly because of the rampant stupidity and ignorance they see in the world. If you want to poke them make sure they are cool with you first. Goths can be quite fun in a burn-down-the-barn kind of way and are awesome to take on camping trips (provided you can provide nicotine, fire and libations in my experience).

        • Superstarseven February 23, 2011 at 4:47 pm -

          Dude, they’re not one in the same. Get those fingers of yours on the keyboard and do some simple research.

        • tom March 14, 2011 at 11:05 am -

          goths paint their fingernails black…. emo’s use a hammer

  49. JimboKruz January 27, 2011 at 10:29 pm -

    Goths…. Juggalos…. I think this list is at most 5/10 actual emo kids.
