I thought this was pretty damn funny.
My impression is that EMO is a Millennial thing. Generation X had something that I suppose was akin to it — Goth. But I knew some Goths and they weren’t whiney. It was a subculture that had a lot to do with a certain type of music — Sisters of Mercy, Joy Division, The Cure, etc — and perhaps an interest in horror fiction/film etc, especially vampires, all that Ann Rice stuff. But I’m not expert.
In any case, it is encouraging to see that there are Millennials with a critical eye aimed at their own generation and utilize it in a creative and entertaining way.
