And you completed your ~look~ by always having a perfect side-swept bang covering part of your face.
You were always crossing your fingers that an AMAZING tour would roll through your city so you could mosh to your favorite songs.

And you internally screamed with joy every time you logged in to see THIS.
You owned at LEAST one studded belt to show off how edgy you were.
And there's a good chance you dyed part of your hair a vibrant color.
But if you didn't, then you probably teased the HELL out of it and covered that baby in hairspray.
