  • Emo is I don't want to seem like a freak, but I sit in my room and cut myself. Goth is I don't care what anybody thinks and I am a freak.

  • Goth is less colorful... Emo is colorful...

    I don't know how either are really weird though... No "weirder" than any other style... As long as they are comfortable in what they wear, who cares what category of style it falls in to?

  • Emo is like punk rock, with style, and Gothic is dark and mysterious. Both very different. They listen to different types of music, and they really don't identify with eachother. Just because we don't understand something doesn't make it stupid. People are different, if they aren't hurting anything, let em!

  • Both are just styles of expression. Neither is really all that new. I looked at my yearbook from the early 90's and saw pics of classmates with almost the exact same clothing, hairstyles, etc. Only the band names were different....

    Of course, back then, they called in "New Romantic".

  • I agree with Musicmom80 pretty much. It's about the look and the music. They are different

    I hate how poeple equate Emo with cutting and Goth with dark depressing music. Niether of those are true
    some people think that they are wierd- I think they are some of the nicest most wonderful and creative people- but then I've been goth for years so...
