How Emo Were You?
You weren't particularly emo. You maybe had Bright Eyes as your Myspace profile song, but you had other interests, probably.
You didn't identify as emo, but you probably owned a Panic! album or two, and definitely had a good supply of black eyeliner. Which you might even still own.
You identified as emo, for sure. And if you had it your way, it would still be 2006 forever - you even can smell the hairspray now.
