No, goths are still goths. Emo kids are the ones who spend a lot of time on their fringes, often have facial/extravagant ear piercings, listen to Death Cab For Cutie-type music, and have a reputation for being somewhat morose/suffering existential guilt/navel-gazey.

HERE IS AN IMPORTANT FACT:

Like many other terms, Emo has become a catch-it-all term that has been perverted and misused and now the misuse is all-pervasive and has replaced the original term. The birth of Emo came about in the mid-80s with bands such as Rites of Spring and Mission of Burma who put a more melodic edge upon the hardcore music of the day, and often sounded quite angsty. Emo gradually became applied to any mopey music and any of the people who listen to it; which really couldn't be further from the truth. Really, it doesn't mean anything now. I know all this because I am a musical historian and know pretty much everything about everything musical.

Impressive.  :thup:

I am old so I just assumed no one would know about Rites of Spring and that early sound. That album came out when I was in High School and I never heard of the term "Emo-Core" until 1989 and I think it was a term made up by the editors of the famous 'Zine Maximum Rock & Roll... when Rites, MoB and Embrace came out we all just referred to is as punk.

continuing in a musical vein but also in keeping with the youtube nature of the thread, here is a very strange song with accompanying very strange video by the very strange and often unlistenable band, The Residents. (although I am fond of this particular song)

Thanks, but I can't take credit for that... Bauhaus is the end all be all of goth and is pretty well known where I come from... of course that could be due to the fact that three of the members live in Southern California (everyone but Peter - so that would be the L&R line-up), including Daniel Ash who lives just 20 miles south of me and DJs up here (Santa Barbara) ocassionally. I have run into David J twice now and each time I came across as a crazed stalker - so he has run away before I could insist on a photo or a lock of hair...

I had never heard that about "Bela Legosi" - that is pretty funny. I have seen them perform that song twice and both times it was a perfect reproduction of the album.

We conveniently never talked about that now...
Making mistakes is how you learn.
Every generation must fight the same battles again and again and again. There is no final victory, and there is no final defeat, and so a little bit of history may help.
“What power have you got? Where did you get it from? In whose interests do you exercise it? To whom are you accountable? And how can we get rid of you?” If you cannot get rid of the people who govern you, you do not live in a democratic system.
That is why no one with power likes democracy and that is why every generation must struggle to win it and keep it – including you and me, here and now.
