I never thought a subculture could ever enrage me like goth or hippies, but what do you know? Emo might just rank as my most hated youth subculture ever! Beyond the whole ‘oh god, you’re killing rock n’ roll’ side of things, it takes teenage self-absorption to new and dizzyingly stupid heights.
Apparently I’m not the only one thinking this, as this mock commercial for Emo Cologne (which I can only imagine smells like a Hot Topic drenched in fresh tears) from Live Day By Day takes a hearty (and dead-on) swipe at the trappings of the scene. Brilliant!
