Wow.
Thats a really young age to get pericings like that.
They shouldnt even be getting anything like that at all Neutral

I don't see how or why their parents let them, and you have to be over 18 to get piercings anyway..I think.

Gah. Don't listen to me xDD

I just saw something on the news today, two teenage girls in Ferntree Gully or something commit suicide by hanging themselves. It was absolutely shocking to think these 16 year olds have killed themselves...
When it showed they're myspaces you could see they were obviously into the emo trend.

I remember another death of a teenager a couple of months back, and in the news it said her death was related to the emo trend and it mentioned My Chemical Romance.
YES, I KNOW MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE ARE NOT IN ANY FCKING WAY EMO.
AND I DON'T THINK THE GIRLS KILLED THEMSELVES BECAUSE OF THE EMO SUBCULTURE EITHER.

I think only one had myspace...I've seen it and it is not even emo...it has a nelly film clip and she liked all different kinds of music. Someone is blaming the emo trend because it makes a good story. It makes me soo mad that they are taking the focus off the real issue and blaming the "emo" trend....seriously.

How stuuupid.

I saw that thing on today tonight.

i was well to say the least appauled at the medias portrayal at the subculture i feel i need to write something to channel seven outlining what "emo" is which basically is the name used to label those individuals who love emotive hardcore , used in the same manor we call people who like star trek "trekkies". if anything suicide and self harm have nothing to do with emo its just media portrayals such as the peice channel seven did that tell kids that killing yourself is what emos about so channel seven makes things worse.

also blaming the subculter is total crap considering teens have always being full of angst since the dawn of time.

i plan on voicing my opinion to today tonight personally by making some phone calls and writing some letters to channel seven. im not a nut i just feel that the subculture has been misrepresented through this less than satisfactory television program that provides nothing but nonsensical dribble about dodgy builders and elderly being conned.

There is. Legally they have to be 16 with parents consent, but a respectable piercing place won't do it until you're 18 no matter what.

I was all "onoez" when I heard that they killed themselves, but then I read that they had this flashy animation that incorrect slipknot lyrics and I rolled my eyes. Just because "fuck it all, fuck this world, fuck everything you stand for. Don't belong, don't exist, don't give a shit, don't ever judge me" is cliche enough, and if they had the wrong lyrics, then they weren't a fan, they were just all "lol I'm so different and alternative"

someone posted this story on myspace(its nt aussie but toally outrageous)its got stuff to do with the "emo" blaming


Chemical Romance's deathfest disturbing
New Jersey-based emo-goth band My Chemical Romance's depressive point of view is jarring in the aftermath of the Virginia Tech shootings.
BY EVELYN McDONNELL
emcdonnell@MiamiHerald.com
''Suffer the children,'' Gerard Way sang Sunday during My Chemical Romance's show at Sunrise's BankAtlantic Center. The New Jersey emo-goth band offered a timely window into the damaged psyche of today's troubled youth. With their macabre costumes and depressive lyrics, the quintet speaks to and for the angst of the post 9/11 generation; the band formed in the wake of that national tragedy.

Their crowd is the trenchcoat-wearing misfits of high school and beyond, with whom last week's gunman said he identified. But while they sing about violence and the occult, MCR vent and channel their frustrations. ''We'd hate to see any of you think to solve your problems with violence,'' Way said. He closed the first half of the band's show by leading the crowd in a genuinely cathartic, if overwrought, chant of ``I am not afraid to keep on living.''

So it was jarring when the gorgeous, dramatically lit black-and-white cityscape of the first set gave way to a backdrop with a giant ''REVENGE'' surrounded by handguns. The graphic predates the Virginia slayings, but it's time to disarm, not alarm. MCR make the mistake of many so-called alternative acts, merely offering a funhouse reflection of society's ills, not a corrective -- they wallow in gore and death as much as the adults they criticize.

The first set was devoted to their most recent album, The Black Parade; the second featured songs from their previous two albums. Way apologized early on that he had popped a rib the night before and might be restrained in his dancing, but the concert was scarcely lacking in intensity. Musically, MCR dabble in vaudeville, country and blues, but they rely over much on metal guitar riffs and pop-punk choruses.

Opening act Muse similarly lacks subtlety. From the Who-like opening keyboard riffs to singer and guitarist Matthew Bellamy's Chris Martin-esque vibrato croon, the English trio employs all the big gestures of anthemic arena rock. They're huge back home, but on this side of the pond, they're just another bunch of U2 wannabes, perhaps because they're nowhere near as good as Radiohead and Coldplay. Muse's set was all exclamation points, no ellipses. Whisper to a scream, boys.

You know what in the beginning emo was about music....now it's a fashion. "Emo" is nothing more than a fashion that will die down after time. Write to them because I hate Today Tonight!

i tried to write something like that on here last night.
but im not intellectual enough to put my thoughts into words so i waited for someone else to do it for me, however everyone heard a lot about it from me today at school haha

today tonight shit me so bad gRR all they talk about is CRAP that doesnt constitute as a news story. channel seven just need something to fill in the 6.30 time slot.

people should write in about it and complain because i saw the girls myspace and it had nothing to do with anything potentially "emo"

and the "sources" of websites they used was wikipedia which everyone knows anyone can edit and that stupid website someone made up as a joke labelling a girl and boy of what to wear to be emo so clearly they just googled emo and used the first websites that came up.clicky

its sad to think that some people are going to actually believe that what theyve been told is true
and whats sader is that people are too lazy to realise that suicide and depression is a serious problem so they just pass it off as a "cult" and a "fashion trend"

This is getting really off track.

That wasn't 'shocking' at all. It was just somebody stating their opinion.
So what, it's different to yours.

& don't bring the whole 'emo' debate into this. It's irrelevant if it started out as a type of music.

ahh excuse me we are discussing the "shocking news". If you don't like it, don't join in.

Actually, the emo debate had a lot to do with the suicide considering the media is blaming the emo trend, and that is annoying especially when "journalists" don't research what the heck they are talking about. Oh yeah and the girl was hardly emo.

true that.
today tonight and a current afair are neither reliable or proper sources of news.
if anything its more to do with entertainment.

the fact they googled emo and used what they had is just testiment to the poor journalistic skills today tonight provides.

they only interviewd parents of what they refered to as "suspected emos"

the page they viewed that supposedly instructed kids on how to be emo was nothing more than a page created for comedic effect poking fun at the subculture, they chose to show it as evidents, total garbage.

Thank you, this story got me so fustrated and they were saying that it might have something to do with the fact they had some suicide girls stuff on there. Mabey if the freeking journalist bothered to look at the suicide girls website they would understand that its not a bunch of girls who actually want to go and kill them selves. i think i will give them a peice of my mind aswell.

I remember another death of a teenager a couple of months back, and in the news it said her death was related to the emo trend

i think you're referring to Carly Ryan, she was murdered in february. it was all over the papers here, like, unbeliably. myspace became the source of all evil, and emo suddenly became even more of a buzz-word. i looked at her myspace though, it was just... strange. she was murdered by two victorians, some guy and his son, i'm not sure how it was related to the emo subculture, but the media truly went to town with emo, & myspace.

two girls getting assaulted by a 51 year old man shocks me, but what they were getting pierced definitely shocks me more. where is parental control??

You'd be surprised at how many parents don't care what their kids do, or how much control kids have over their parents. I know people like that and it is silly getting that done at 13.
