Emo kids. Remember them?

I went through an emo phase for a couple of years at school haha. Loved the music. Like The Used for example.

I do like the heavy eyeliner on girls. Like how avril lavigne had it. But she’s a skater girl.

Idk I’m pretty sure it’s emo too

Must have been a thing post generation X. I don’t remember this being a thing.

We had guys that wore concert shirts or tees and preppy clothes. I dotted the line and did both.

Silly thing for my clique in high school was to wear an unbuttoned Hawaiian shirt over a t-shirt.

I remember a few Elmo kids.

No clue what this trend was called in other countries, and if you even had them. Loud music, lots of drugs, training suits, bald heads/half-bald for girls, weird dances.

I was definitely an emo kid in my teens, haha.

The trend I never got was when everyone were orange from selftanners and their hair was bleached dry and teased to be all puffy.
Looked like barbie dolls dipped in chemicals

I was a teen goth. Heck, I’m still goth. But I wore corsets, high heels, pvc and lace every day. I still love to dress up but band tees and jeans is a valid look and it’s ok not to dress up fancy every day

I’m 17 in this pic. I shaved my eyebrows off for years. Now I pluck them and I don’t understand why I shaved them completely off for so long… drawing on symmetrical eyebrows every day is not easy!

They were called skinheads.
Started out as a punky workers youth movement scene. The style ended up being taken on by neo nazis. Like the movie romper stomper and american history x.

Thanks. Here we differentiate. We call the neo nazis skinheads too.

These guys, we called “gabbers”. Though they look similar, most were into the music, clothes, drugs. Afaik. But not necessarily the rightwing politics, I think, not sure. My boyfriend at the time knew a few people in that music scene…they were drug addicted idiots, but not nazis. :neutral_face:

Yeah I was going to say they seem like skinheads on mdma. But wasn’t exactly sure what they where.

Yeah from what i know, there were different subcultures who took on the style. Some neo nazis, some punks, some whatever else. I think the style was used mainly to shock. It was nothing like anything else at the time. And it could be pretty intimidating to see a bunch of guys and gals that looked like that walking in your direction haha.

I know. I went - I tried everything and anything at that time - to one of these big parties once. Had to wait for my boyfriend at night. On a train station filled with the kind of people above sniffing coke and all. It was slightly intimidating as a fragile 55kg young girl. I met the people he knew, who were drug addicted idiots, but friendly to me. I did not feel the necessity to do that every weekend.

I used to straighten my hair so I would fit in with the emo people when I was like 13.

Big trucks is a trend I wouldn’t mind going away. The manosphere is an internet thing I that’s pretty dumb. The haircuts shaved on the side but stuff left on top I think has past. I remember in junior high at the end of the nineties everyone had short hair with gel used to get the front to stick up like a small duckbill.
